Just like many of you, I was very sad the day Craft announced that it would suspend publication of it's print magazine. I felt particularly sad because I was very fortunate to have a couple of projects in two issues and I had an article set to be published in issue 11 (a paper lamp I love and use in our own living room). I'm so glad I have my ten volumes to pour over at any time I wish.
I have no doubt that the web site, with the awesome Natalie Zee Drieu at the helm, will continue to provide inspiration and highlight the best of the crafting world (including my alphabet flash cards - thank you!). I wish them the best of luck and look forward to many more visits. Thank you Craft!

On my night table this week:
No One Cares What You Had for Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog
I bought this book over the weekend at the Mom 2.0 Summit. I had seen it before but had never really thought I needed it until I opened it. I love that it's a short quick read and humorous at the same time. Maggie's suggestions are very general and can apply to anyone or anything. I think it will be a great reference book to have when I happen to get stuck in the writing department—something that happens more often than I care to admit.
Speaking of Maggie... Remember I said I liked the fact that the summit was small? Where else would've Maggie Mason and I be sitting on either side of Gabrielle Blair during a session? I got a chance to talk to them both and they couldn't have been any nicer - just like everyone else there.
