    I like the Bella Grace issue because it portrays winter as cozy and magical and not cold and dreary.

  2. Catherine Gelaude says:

    I put the Take Ten Edition into my Pintrest folder ‘May I have the Envelop Please.’

  3. Dawn Nielsen says:

    In the fast paced NYC life, working a high pressure full time job and trying to raise 2 small children with roots and wings, creativity, curiosity and serenity – YOU are my peaceful island. I can just open the Artists’ Café or the Somerset Studio Gallery magazine and be transported to an iridescent universe of inspiration and originality.

    Thank you for YOU!

  5. Marg P says:

    Where Women Cook inspires me. Cooking is creative! Can’t wait to see this issue!

  6. Linda Reitz says:

    https://www.pinterest.com/pin/489836896955866607/ This lady rolling out dough reminds me of my Aunt Betty’s Egg Nog Cookies. I believed she could make anything taste fantastic in her bright red six burner stove with the cast iron burners. I believed it for 40 years in fact, until I mentioned it to her – she never had a red stove… but someday, I will just to honor that fictional memory.

  7. They are all inspiring, Sew Somerset looks appealing, as I plan to do more sewing. Thank you for the giveaway!

  8. Diane Burrell says:

    Beautiful magazine cover, as always. I never fail to find something I love in every issue.

  9. kristen says:

    Bella Grace seems to speak to me. I am a Winter hater, especially since I suffer from SAD. This issue looks like wonderful therapy for me.

  10. Karen Ewert says:

    https://www.pinterest.com/ewert0479/crafts/. The little vintage camper is adorable. I LOVE Sew Somerset, it always gets my creative energy going!

  11. J. Byers says:

    Oh my, all of these offerings look soooo deliciously inviting. Thank you for such lovely invitations to enjoy the world. I adore “Bella Grace”, and as I type here I see gray clouds heavy with snow ~ so I am drawn most to the “89 Beautiful Days of Winter” ~ to remind me of winter’s beauty. Thank you for this delightful opportunity to win such a special treat. Your publications make me smile like a kitty in the sunshine. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/561613016017426354/

  12. Bev H. says:

    I liked Take Ten because I love writing and receiving letters. I was in the military and stationed in foreign countries. I would rush to the mailroom everyday to see who had written to me. It brought me closer to family that was far away. I still have those letters especially some from my mother who has since passed away.

  13. Art Quilting Studio would be my hands down favorite, love Deborah Boscherts work.

  14. Kat Cashwell says:

    I really liked The Coloring Studio! Very informative information on coloring tools!!

  18. Blythe Barbo says:

    I love mixed media and mixing things up. I love bringing the outdoors in – and the indoors out. It’s hard to choose – because each publication is inspirational in incorporating art into the everyday – but I would probably go with Somerset Studio – and Belle Armoire Jewelry , too – for helping me to think outside the lines and make things a little more quirky & edgy. The ideas aren’t just confined to the project – but can be expanded out as far as you imagine it to be.

  19. Debra A Armstrong says:

    I would love winning the latest issue of The Coloring Studio, lots of unique ideas as always.

  20. Renee Zarate says:

    I love Belle Armoire Jewelry, I’m just sure if I had that issue I could create some jewelry. Wouldn’t that be fun?
