first off, the fall issue of Touched Creatively came out today, and i am one of the "artists" featured in it!! you should definitely check it out.. there are some really talented people featured. you can preview it here and buy a download version for only $1.89 or a print version for $5.17.
here's a little bit about the concept of Touched Creatively, as stated by creator Jodi Ulschmid:
The purpose of this magazine is to form connections and networks, to inspire individuals of possibilities within their lives, to encourage creativity and promote the handmade community. I want to give emerging artists exposure for their
amazing talents, promote their on-line shops, and offer support for following their dreams. Art comes in a variety of forms and is made with special meanings,whether it is in the process or the end product, there is always a story to be told. I want to share these inspiring stories to form a connection between the viewer, artist, and handmade creation so a special meaning will always be remembered.
it is still a new publication and needs all the promoting it can get, so tell all your friends! also, if you are interested in being featured in a future issue, you can submit your story and artwork through the website.
