I'm kind of freaking out about HOW EXCITED I am that I just subscribed to Craft:
magazine. I try very very hard to not just accumulate stuff for the sake of accumulation. I give myself a couple things to collect (felt, floss, buttons, Japanese craft books) and I try to stick with it.
Magazines are the last thing I would have thought I'd get excited about. But when the last issue of Craft came out, I must have talked a whole lot about it, because one day, Andrew surprised me with it (you can see it tucked in the middle of my craft books up there). I never-in-a-million-years would have spent $15 on a magazine. I mean, that's a whole Japanese craft book!
But once I had it in my hands and I read it, I was hooked. I wanted to post about it, but I never got the chance. It was a joy to read and there are at least three projects I want to make from that issue.
So, when I read on the Craft Blog
that issue 04 is coming out, my heart started racing ... I must have it ... but I didn't want to spend another $15 ... so I subscribed!
Did you know you get the online version for FREE when you subscribe? Me either! I confess, I went and peeked at the first 5 pages (didn't read any of it), but I quickly closed my browser because I want to wait for my issue to arrive.
And, being the miser I am, I'm shocked, *shocked!*, that I'm seriously considering buying the two back issues I missed AND I'm super tempted to order Make
(the box set is making me drool).
What in the world is happening to me? I suspect that it has something to do with O'Reilly, their publisher. Some of our favorite programming books
come from O'Reilly.
Maybe their paper is made of crack.
