Wow! I just finished previewing the Winter edition of Folk Magazine. This is a magazine that resonates with my old-fashioned soul.
You get to meet hard-working folks who are crafters and creators, like Lisa Leonard. She created a jewelry line and started her own business as means to create more flexibility in her schedule and meet the needs of her family. Next time I’m in San Luis Obispo, I’m going to make it a point to visit her studio.
And there is Zen, the middle-aged mid-westerner who is pursuing his passion as cobbler, proving my mantra, “it’s never too late.”
If you’re a dog lover or even a pet owner, you’re in for a real treat with dog photographer Jesse Freidin’s photos. Get ready to ooh and aah over some of the most adorable pictures of man’s best friend.
Best of Year One, 2012 review
As I read through the winter issue of Folk Magazine, I found myself transported in time , only to rejoin the 21st century after I had closed the magazine cover, much like Temperance, a character in the short story, ” The Comforts of Home.” There are more stories like this one, both memories and tales, woven together with a common thread of finding the true meaning of comfort.
And what “down-home style” magazine is complete without crafts and recipes? Gorgeous photos, including the recipes and tutorials, reveal sugary confections, Valentine’s crafts and good ol’ southern comfort food. How about a savory bowl of tomato soup, or some peach cobbler for dessert?
Tiffany Mitchell, soap maker, states “The simplicity and authenticity of being a maker brings a deep sense of purpose.” Her words resonate with me. You will find that to be true throughout the magazine. There will be some person, or story that speaks to you, encourages you and inspires you.
So, cuddle up under a warm blanket and enjoy!
See you in class,
