Sign up to WIN a Free copy of the New FOLK magazine!!!

I must admit, I am a total magazine junkie. I'm also super picky about which ones I read. A magazine, just like a good book, has certain qualities that draw you in. For me, it's not just about whether the cover shot catches my eye first thing, or that it's the Christmas issue. There needs to be a quality to the paper it's printed on, the size and shape of the magazine needs to be appealing, the photography needs to be crisp, clean, modern and some what edgy and it's really refreshing when it works with, and features artists. It's also nice when the editor and staff are real, accessible people.

So, I'm giving away 2 copies of this hip and fresh new magazine called "FOLK". This magazine is for anyone who loves antiques, primitives, the simple life, home cooking, family and friends. It's put together by the editor-n-chief, Ben Ashby and his wonderful staff. They are young, fun and have a great eye for details. They're new magazine is full of great articles about childhood memories, family adventures, decorating, and yummy recipes. The photography is bold, detailed, eye catching and fresh. They feature great works of art and great artists. They live by the "Buy Handmade" rule. If you haven't seen a copy, you really must. Here's your chance to win issue II.
I received 3 copies in the mail the other day, so I'm passing along 2 of those to someone who doesn't already have an issue.

I would like to give a big THANKS to Ben and his staff for including my bear in the "Tis the Season" section, and for selecting my bear to be in "A Handmade Holiday, To Dwell in Primitive Thymes". Also, don't miss my ad on page 14. It was designed by FOLK's graphic designer, Tosha Jackson. She did a fabulous job!

So here's all you have to do to be now have 6 chances to get your name in the hat! Anyone can play!
