This issue we're all about slowing down and taking the time to reflect on our lives.


Editor Sarah Gane says: "Winter is the perfect time of year for a bit of peaceful reflection and a chance to reconnect with our inner selves.

"Whether we’re outdoors, wandering in the wilds of nature, or snuggled up in a blanket in front of the fire, these nuggets of time offer an opportunity to take stock of all that has been and gone in our lives: the rough and the smooth.

"Doing so enables us to celebrate our courage, creativity and resilience, as well as setting a few intentions for the new year ahead. So, whether your wishes are to learn something new, head off on a solo adventure or simply keep your head in the clouds a little more, this issue is packed full of inspiration to help feed your creative souls.

"As the wise Dr Seuss once said, “The more things that you read, the more things you’ll know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Sounds pretty exciting to me. Wouldn’t you agree?"

This issue comes with lots of beautiful things to make, including DIY journals, stitchable travel postcards, original prints and bespoke bookplates.

Order your copy today for only £9.99 with FREE UK postage. EUR £11.99, ROW £12.99. or call 03330 162 138.
