Thank You

On Thursday, just around lunchtime, the postman knocked on my door with a card. Inside it said "Hoping you have a wonderful day, love from Amy". I couldn't stop smiling. What Amy didn't know (though, I'm starting to wonder - I think some of you might know me better than I know myself) was that Thursday was the big Scrap365 Blog Hop Day!

I got up that morning to find a bunch of flowers and a card from the family who knew I had been looking forward to sharing my secret with you. They wanted to wish me well. It was a wonderful day!


So, thank you to Amy and to Ruth, for her special card, and to everyone else who has left a comment or taken the time to email me their best wishes for the new magazine. It has meant a lot. It's that mutual support which makes the blogging world such a great place to be.

There is still time today to check out the Blog Hop here (or scroll down to my last post and start with me). Please do go and browse the blogs of the other designers and start looking forward to 18th November. That's the date to remember! Oh,and you could check out the facebook page here too. You'll find all the subscription information there.

And, please, have a think about what you like, what you need from a scrapbook magazine and let me know. All opinions welcome!

I just have time to remind you that it is Storytelling Sunday next week. Only three more until the end of the year..

one of things I loved most in the late lamented Scrapbook Inspirations, which I don't find in other magazines, was the designers' stofies behind the latouts. Not just a copy of thr journalling or a step by step make but the reasoning and emotions of the design team. We got to know them so well.

Ruth said...

I agree with Kirsty, the DT at SBI felt like friends by the end. But, of course, you're already a friend ... and I'm wondering how I can manage another weekend soon to come and visit ...

Oh my gosh how exciting (not sure how I missed this; must have been in Australia!). Many congrats Sian, and I do hope the mag will be distributed overseas. If not, I guess I will just have to subscribe, yay!

I think Kirsty's right...there was a real family feeling about SI....and I felt I knew the designers well.There was also a real variety in the magazine.....so it had so much inspiration.

Lovely tag today Sian. I love mags which include interesting projects with good instructions (I.e. Mini albums or simple book binding, etc.) I also like a mag to feature some two page layouts, layouts with multiple photos, and some clean and simple pages. Also like the occasional article on photography tips.

I like magazines that remember the diversity of scrappers - not all have children; not all are in USA/UK/Northern hemisphere. And if a scrapping mag does not have a good number of cleam/simple/graphic layouts then I don't buy it

I was disappointed that the 365 mag's homepage tells us nothing about the editorial line/style/point of view and what to expect in the magazine.

How clever of Amy! I had a card from her that day too (as part of Ginger's Mail Art Exchange) and it was my birthday:)
As for the magazine, I would just like diversity of scrapping styles and projects.

I had a blast this weekend and loads of people at the reatreat had already subscribed to Scrap365 - we've been starved of paper inspiration so I'm sure that it will be a great success!!! Just made the necessary phone call myself too!

How lovely that your family brought you flowers to celebrate the new mag being announced:) and thanks for the reminder about storytelling sunday, I would have completely forgotten!

PS my ankles are much better now, thankfully its not a daily occurrence!

Ginger said...

I am still trying to think of a story for Sunday!!!

I don`t have much to add as everyone has mentioned what I think. Variety is good as it is nice to try something you may not normally.

exciting stuff. I like magazines which balance people you 'know' and new faces on a regular basis.

In depth articles and good sized photos of projects where you can read the journaling or it is underneath as the stories are important to me.
