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!

The cover image and story features a talented musician who is beautiful both on the inside and out; Natalie Rose. Other great articles include words and photos on Kundalini yogaa delicious recipean ode to big hair, ways to overcome anxiousness, and being a boss versus being a bitch. Of course, there’s also my famous  DIY terrarium post. Feel free to pin, tweet, or share any of these stories!

HaveHeart has it all, and as usual, it is wholly dedicated to the idea of what it means to be a warrior woman in the 21st century. We could all use a little more of that.

Have a fantastic weekend, friends!

Last week on HSB, I said that I would soon be disclosing two magazine-related surprises to my readers. With the first admission already out of the bag, the second one is this: I am a newly minter writer for HaveHeart Magazine! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, this little girl from the prairies was asked to have her DIYS published on their website. This is an occurrence came most unexpectedly, but that I am welcoming with wide open arms. I am thrilled to be taking on the project not for monetary gain or exposure, but so that I can begin to take writing more seriously. Short of moving to New York to experience the daily struggles in life and love but then selling myself out to GQ for rent and food money, I almost feel like a saner, less selfish, and more cautious version of Hannah Horvath. You know, the season 3 rendition of Hannah. The one that is growing up and coming to a realization regarding the fragile balance between doing what you love and doing what you have to in order to survive.

supplies Life can be busy, complicated, and messy. It can also throw you a welcome curveball when you least expect it. I am embracing my two newest positions in my career right now with open arms. I am letting the world notice me. In true Hannah form, I am saying, “it’s Wednesday night baby, and I’m alive!”

And whoever said that blogging will get you nowhere?
