I was super surprised and really excited to get a text recently from my friend Reanne telling me that my one of my prints was in Your Home & Garden. It’s in the latest edition, which looks like this:
What I really love is that the print was bought by people who’ve got such great taste! I rarely know who buys my work – prints or craft – so it’s wonderful to see where it’s gone to live. Another print from this edition is above our spare bed.
Your Home & Garden is a really nice magazine – it’s filled with the type of houses that are stylish and amazing but that don’t make you feel poor. It’s inspirational and inexpensive (it’s around $8 an issue) and you can get a subscription as a Fly Buys reward.
As I was adding content, I read the opening paragraph of my statement on the Solander Gallery website: “Emma McCleary has a love of making prints.” I’d forgotten in my haze of craft how much I do love printmaking so I’m definitely going to make more time for it … while also keeping up my crafting.
