I used to be a real magazine junkie but I have now got it down to just one or two per month but one of my absolute faves is Country Living Magazine.
Now obviously this is a lifestyle magazine and one to which I so totally aspire, if only I had the time, money and the expertise to undertake the jam-making, crafting, decorating, enjoying nature, defeating my garden but as there are only 24 hours in a day I have to admit defeat and live it vicariously through the pages of this magazine. Although one day I might have a beehive and not the one on top of my head!
However this month they have a fab competition Kitchen Table Talents Awards - six separate categories which might win you a prize to change your life and set up a new business doing or making the things that you love. It costs £5 to enter and the monies are going to Country Living's Charity of the Year, The Princes Countryside Trust. More details are to be found here:
Now the category I like the look of is the crafts category - I will need to find three items, take pics, explain how they are made and then write a 500 word description of what your do, how you started and your future dreams. I am now trying to find original designs, decide what I should enter and what my dreams are.
So which category would you enter and what would be your three original makes?
