On Newsstands Now, November Edition

Just in case you have been wondering what I’ve been up to when I’m not making toddler food, here’s a quick look some recent work that you might see on newsstands now.

Live Happy is a brand new magazine and I am delighted to have a story on super easy homemade gift tags in the first issue. It’s hard for me to pick my favorite one, but the top one with rosemary and pastina is definitely in the running.

The winter issue of Do It Yourself has a story that I produced and wrote many months ago now—but assembling that headboard is something I won’t soon forget! (It’s not hard to do, I just wasn’t sure if the pattern that I wanted to do would work out as I hoped—spoiler alert, it did!).

And finally, I did some food gift packaging ideas for the impressive first issue of All Recipes magazine (which you wouldn’t be able to tell from reading the story since they don’t use traditional bylines…which totally makes sense for their format, but it makes it hard for my mom to find my work:).

All of the holiday packaging ideas that I’ve worked on in the past year makes me feel a load of pressure when it comes to wrapping actual gifts. I’m pretty sure I’m going to do the scalloped garland gift tag idea from Live Happy, with kraft paper and bakers twine. Simple is sometimes best!

    OK, that rosemary/pastini tree tag is INSANELY cute. (And also a little bit just insane…but mad props to anyone who pulls that off during the holiday season!)

    Also that headboard is gorgeous!
