Publications for Inspiration

I love the family of magazines published by Stampington & Company. If you are creative in some form, there are 32 magazines designed to inspire, celebrate and challenge your skills.

One of my favorites is Where Women Create. It takes you for a behind the scenes tour of studios where artistic women in all sorts of media work. There are some awe inspiring home studios, unique workspaces and cozy nooks. Lots of fun and great ideas for organizing your studio space or adding to your wish list. I think it's fun to see where other women create.

Another favorite featuring handbags, clutch, totes and more is Haute Handbags. Artists share their talent and designs. Many of these great artists are from Etsy!

One of my goals is to be featured in this publication! I'll keep you posted.

If you create jewelry, handcrafted items, sew, blog, paper-craft and more there are publications for you. A bit more pricey than your average magazine at $14.99 USD, they are also more substantial and of better quality.
