home & harvest

HomeHarvest1Many of my HSB fans are aware of the fact that I am also a freelance writer, and have written for a small number of publications around North America. I steadily write for one of my more favourite online magazines, which is entitled HaveHeart. Very recently, the magazine has gone from being solely online to newly printed format! What’s more, in the first week alone, 5000 copies of HaveHeart were picked up by readers. Apparently this number was expected to last two months. Hey, the sky’s the limit when it comes to dreaming big.

HomeHarvest4While this news should warrant a post in itself, the same woman that does 99% of the behind-the-scenes work herself for HaveHeart, has bravely chosen to create another printed magazine to target a much different audience. This captivating publication is called Home & Harvest. The caption for the new magazine says that it’s “devoted to celebrating the lovely life and community of the Palouse!” 

Heather, my editor of both mags, picked two of my DIYs that were once featured in HaveHeart, and had them published in the premiere issue of Home & Harvest!

HomeHarvest2One was the Wood and Wire DIY.

HomeHarvest3The other was the Make Your Own Snow Globe. Little did I know that upon creating it nearly one year ago, that it would eventually land me a regular writing position for two magazines.

This month’s issue features my Reindeer Plate Tutorial.

HomeHarvest5The first issue of Home & Harvest turned out just beautifully, and the second was very recently put into print. Heather and her husband Tony are doing such an amazing job. I can only imagine how difficult, stressful, time-consuming, and yet, fun and rewarding it must be to have not only one circulating magazine, but now two! I most definitely feel proud every time that I see my own name in print, and I look forward to collecting these monthly issues and adding them to my own collection of freelance work.

Please take your time and read Home & Harvest. If you like my blog, then I know that you will love this magazine!

Reindeer5Christmas is but a few weeks away, which means that it’s time to start getting together your presents. Because Christmas isn’t about family, friends, and sharing the love. It’s all about getting gifts and seeing how far you can push yourself until you snap. Right?

I’m going to try and have a few DIYs this month, in honour of the season. This time of year is particularly taxing on wallets, so why not try to make some of your gifts rather than spending and arm and leg on that special someone? After all, you only have two of them. How will you be able to make that delicious holiday meal if you’re missing your appendages? 

Reindeer3That being said, I’m also going to make sure that these Christmas crafts are extremely easy to make! But would you really expect anything different from little ol’ me?

Reindeer2So for the first December DIY project, I made the most beautiful Reindeer Plates for HaveHeart Magazine. Largely inspired by similar plates that I saw on both Pinterest and UO’s website, I thought, ‘Well hey, those look quite fun. I could make my own version of that.’ Spoiler alert: they are! Plus they make great jewelry holders, serving trays, or general decorative kitchen plates. They’re just the perfect gift.

Reindeer1This is what you’ll need:

Toy reindeer

Plate(s)

Crazy glue

Paint (spray or acrylic)

HaveHeart1This month’s HaveHeart DIY was something new and different for me. Even though we celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving in October, because the magazine is largely American-based, I decided to save my Harvest DIY for November. However, that’s not what was so ‘new and different’. What was, was the fact that the DIY was so involved. While most of my craft projects are usually simple ones, this particular project I found to be tedious. Yet, the individuality and end result made it more than worth it in the end!

201.jpgGuys! It’s time to get all Halloweeny on your butts for a minute. Did you know that the great, spooky holiday is only 26 days away?! I only know that because I just looked it up, but still! Have you bought your candy yet? Do you know what your costume will look like? Have you started any of your DIYs? If your answers are no, no, and no, then I can help you rectify one of those problems right now with my latest craft for HaveHeart Magazine. Are you ready?

This is what you’ll need to do in order to start a little thing that I like to call the “Classic Pumpkin Project,” or “Readable Pumpkin DIY,” if you will.

1. Get an old book, preferably a scary one.

2. Track down some scissors, a glue gun, wire, and pencil.

3. Click this link here.

img_1840Well, my little freelancing and rhubarb-loving butt has done it again! Ok, maybe not little, but the latter two statements are true! This month on HaveHeart, I have written an article on Rhubarb Mush. Avid readers of my blog will remember reading the original post here. However, it’s been all spiffied up with my editor Heather’s magic fingers. Why not take a look? I think that you will enjoy reading it again. :-)
