Somerset Home Spring 2016 Issue Giveaway

Our birch bark votive holder decor project has been included in the Spring 2016 issue of Somerset Home Magazine and we are giving away a free copy to one of our readers - Sustain My Craft Habit

When we jumped into blogging just over a year ago we didn’t imagine some of the interesting places it would take us or some of the amazing opportunities we would get. In addition to being filmed for television (stay tuned for that!) we’ve also had the opportunity for one of our projects to be included in a beautiful DIY and decor magazine, Somerset Home by Stampington & Company.

Now, be patient while I, Jane, reminisce for a moment. I’m probably not unique in my love for magazines: growing up pre-internet meant that our main entertainment came from books, cable TV and magazines. I still to this day have a tote full of crafting magazines that are now likely considered vintage (hmmm, eBay, here I come!). But, if you mention the idea of being IN a magazine, flashbacks of a 16-year old Jane, hanging out in my backyard over the summer with my BFF, preparing applications for the Sassiest Girl in America contest rush to mind! Anyone else remember those days? Anyone???

Anyways, back to the present (that was fun though)! Needless to say, we were pretty excited with the idea of one of our projects being published in a magazine and you may have caught our post on Instagram a few weeks ago sharing the surreal experience of seeing our Birch Bark Votive Holder post photos in the magazine at Michaels! Don’t judge the fact that since then I may have visited Michaels a couple (OK, four) more times just to see our photos in the magazine in the store.

We must say, the Spring 2016 issue of Somerset Home Magazine is brimming with bright, beautiful and inspiring ideas for the home. Flipping through the pages you can’t help but feel refreshed and motivated to create something. In today’s technology-filled world, it’s so nice to take a break from a screen and find a few moments to relish the feel and beauty of a magazine.

We were so excited to have our project included in Somerset Home Magazine and are giving away one issue to a reader.

Although it was hard to choose, two of our favourite projects were these upcycled Frappuccino bottles (look at that colour!) and the Forever Roses (so simple and stunning). Both of these projects (like the majority of those in the issue) are totally doable, useful and we could absolutely see ourselves putting these creative ideas in our homes.

We were so excited to have our project included in Somerset Home Magazine and are giving away one issue to a reader.

And great news! Stampington & Company will send one of our awesome readers a copy of the Spring 2016 issue. Just enter in the box below. Please note that the giveaway is open only to residents of Canada and the United States.




Thank you Somerset Home for letting me fulfill one of my school-girl dreams!

Did you ever dream of being in a magazine?

Love Somerset Studio/Stampington&Company - so many awesome magazines. I have had some projects published by them before and I am so excited for you! It is fun to see your projects in print. Have to look for this one the next time I'm in Michaels or Indigo!

The new arrival of Somerset Home spring is coming. I just can’t wait for their marvelous collection of pillows and cushions. Their embroidery on pillows is also very nice and they have all possible color collections of these pillows and cushions.

My favorite spring DIY is anything colorful! I added some paper flowers to my wall above my piano for an inexpensive color boost. I love your project, congrats on the feature and I will be sure to look for it next time I am at the store!

Thanks-you, Brooke! I LOVE your paper flower wall project! We just redid my daughter's bedroom and she's been asking for flowers on her wall so this is a perfect DIY for that. Thanks for the inspiration!
