Being swamped at work has made me put Hand Pecked Designs on the back burner. On top of al I’m seeing all these magazines folding. The magazines I’ve enjoyed flipping through to get inspirations, to relax, and stay atop the latest color palettes.

First was Country Homes.

Then Home Companion.

Now, Domino.

I don’t know if I can stand it if times are so bad there is no room in our lives to share everyday creativity.


  1. Don't get too upset - after all, there is Internet too ;). You might find something you are looking for in the web :). But it does suck when the good stuff is gone and some crap stays in business...

  2. Sadly a lot of these are shutting down their sites too.


A blogger goes squeeeee when you RT a post, does cartwheels when you @ her with a tweet, but for the best all around effect, post a comment!
