I recently received two publications that have featured my softies, and thought I'd share. It's a great-yet-surreal feeling to see your work on the pages of such great mags.
Talented Austrian designer/illustrator/mom, Dolores Wally, puts together this beautiful kids and craft quarterly, KleinFormat. This is her third issue and I was very flattered that she asked to include the Molly Monkey pattern, translated into German:
Hey Robyn, see your head shot you took of me up there? Thanks again for that!
KleinFormat is a beautifully styled pub designed with the craft bloggy mom in mind, chock full of great images, gorgeous products for kids, and freebies like patterns and paper dolls. As a clever extra, the cover is also die cut into fun stickers. It's so well put together.
And wow, I turned the page and discovered I'm included in the mag alongside the likes of talented softie designer Suze Bauer of Revoluzzza, who also contributed a free pattern and tutorial for her adorable elves. Which makes me long to be even passably fluent in German, which I am so very not. Unilingual, me. A gap in my education, to be sure.
More images from the mag: Pretty paper animals and dolls...
Beautiful decor ideas...
And hey, there is a feature with my cyber-friend, Juliane of Fröken Skicklig, who makes the most wonderful dolls! Go and see her site, because this tiny glimpse is no good.
and back cover...
Every inch is so well designed. If you would like a copy for yourself, you can purchase it here.
And here's my girls' Ballerina Tooth Fairy gracing the intro page to an article about baby tooth care in Menta Magazine, a health publication based in Israel. I can't read Hebrew either, but it was still thrilling to see it featured.
It's amazing to me how small the world suddenly becomes via the internet. I routinely speak with kind folks from all around the world via my blog/shop and have enjoyed crafty emotional connections with strangers living thousands of miles away. It's a beautiful thing.
