Stampington & Company creates such beautiful magazines that seem more like a book than a simple magazine.
You may have heard of their magazines "Where Women Create" or the "Artful Blogging" that I have mentioned before. They publish several others so there is literally a magazine for everyone. Their newest, "Willow and Sage" is chock full of homemade bath & body products.
The photography is beautiful and eye candy to those who love beauty products, or just those who love photography! While I admit that some of the recipes go over the head of a novice like me (and I wouldn't even attempt them!) there are several DIY projects that are great for anyone to try. Oatmeal Honey Face Scrub, Cooling Cucumber Face Mask, Whipped Coconut Oil, Vanilla Rose Body Scrub, Handmade Washcloths, and many more.
Not only are the projects amazing but the articles are as well. I love MaryJane's Farm books and magazines and products and was thrilled to see her article, "The Art of Bathing" in the Summer 2014 issue. Or reading an article about "Wharton Farms", which started out as a hobby farm and morphed into a bath and body business.
This is a magazine to savor and enjoy several evenings in a row. Sometimes I flip through to ogle the photos. Other times I get enraptured in an article or recipe.
Instead of going into the recycle bin after I finish, like all my other magazines, this will go on my bookshelf. It's so pretty and useful and a great addition to my DIY reference books.
