Welcome to the Simple Living Media Summer Block Party! We’ve got 20 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win!

Living Crafts Magazine

The last giveaway here at Simple Organic in the SLM Block Party is from Living Crafts magazine.  From their website:

Living Crafts provides craft enthusiasts with the information, ideas, and inspiration they need to support their desire for self-sufficiency, sustainability and a natural lifestyle. Each issue focuses on a season of the year, bringing ideas, and the how-to for projects that are in harmony with nature to create seasonal rhythm at home. Editorial content includes projects making toys, apparel, home items, gifts, and seasonal crafts, using natural supplies such as wood, glass, wool, silk.

I wasn’t familiar with Living Crafts magazine before this, but now I wonder where it has been all my life. It’s exactly the kind of crafters magazine that I’ve been looking for.

The current issue includes instructions for making a hammock, a felted playmat for babies and young children, a garden loom, and a knitted doll jumper and sunhat, as well as other general articles.  Anyone interested in crafting and green living will appreciate Living Crafts.

Living Crafts Magazine Prize Package

There will be three winners selected for this giveaway, and each winner will receive a two-year subscription to Living Crafts.

There are four issues of Living Crafts each year.  Each issue focuses on the new season, to help you establish a seasonal rhythm in your home.
