As much as I love the overseas mags that I often mention like Mollie Makes, I don't want to forget about our own local treasure. I am always amazed when I look at Ideas magazine. The styling is beautiful and the craft projects are spot on. With the penny friendly R29.90 price tag, it's a little treat, but full to the brim with inspiration and practical pretty projects. These snaps I took, show a few of my favourite pages paired with some office goodies and of course delicious cupcakes.
In the latest issue I particularly like the piece, entitled A Vintage Affair, which is shot in a converted barn. The spreads are so lovely that I like to leave them open on my project table - that way I don't forget to take a creative break! Their inspiration video is also a clear reason to feel happy and ready to get crafty.
I don't want to give too much away, but I can say it makes for perfect weekend reading, tea and cake are a must too! Happy weekend and happy creating and reading.
