Ms Peppermint :: she's one pretty crafty girl


The cover of the newest issue 0f Peppermint is a beautiful purply hue. It's such a nostalgic cover image, the whole feel. Very Wintry indeed.
I received my issue on Friday and wanted to devour the whole thing instantly. Instead I visited the Avid Reader Little Market, and then the Vintage Fair, and then chocolate mud cake and tea. All with Ms Peppermint herself.
I am slowly reading through the stories. Life is getting in the way!
I so love the handcrafted story, written by Tess Curran. She is the talented features writer for Peppermint - and such a sweet and lovely young woman. It's a must read for every-single one of you. About blogging and crafting and work-at-home-mums. (If you look very closely in the corner of this page, you'll notice that I made these little letters - it was such a fun project, and I feel proud to have been asked to help.)The fashion pages are beautiful. I may be a tad biased, but I do believe that the model on pages 32-39 is something a whole lot of gorgeous and especially beautiful. I showed a sneak peek here, but sorry you'll have to get the mag to see the rest. (okay, okay - just a couple more). There's a lovely little story on Justine of MixtapeZine and also the Kiwi World Sweet World.
As well as a crazy amount of anything else handcrafted, eco, local, realistic, interesting, current, fashionable.......Peppermint has the latest on all that you want to be reading. Printed on 100% recycled paper, with a waterless printing process, right here in Brisbane.
Check out the website, facebook or twitter. For you Brisbanites, we'll be selling Peppermint Issue 3 + subscriptions at our stall at the BrisStyle Indie Designer's Market. This Saturday. 9am - 2pm. St Augustine's Church, Racecourse Road, Hamilton. It will be at newsagents on Friday.

  5. Ellie, I was wondering where I'd get my hands on a copy - then I opened the mail and turns out I subscribed a few months ago! (I'm so vague and sleep deprived, the upside is I get nice surprises like this!).
    I'm thoroughly enjoying... and love your little appearances in the mag. THat's sooo great that you made those letters, I love them and was admiring them. Of course I want to make some now, but I'm adding that to the 'inspiration' list.
    PS thanks for your craftstipation comments, you feature a bit in the cures post!
