Enter Nuno Magazine. This proactive crafter has gone the extra mile and published the first edition of a brilliant magazine. The first issue is aptly named Forest (for the inspiration and materials it gives) and it is part e-book, part craft magazine and all awesome this E-zine is a whopping 150 ad free pages! Full of gorgeous photography, ideas and instructions for execution of thirty projects Nuno magazine delivers a feast for the eyes and the idea books(Seriously, you'll want to get out your scratchpad for this). And for a mere five USD this wonderful E-zine can be yours!
For your hard earned five dollars you get wonderful how to's for projects like;
These wonderful puppets made from natural and repurposed materials. (This was the project that convinced me to buy the issue.)
This knitted fern pillow makes me wish I could knit. Seriously, I love it so much I might pay someone to knit it for me.
The magazine is a collaborative effort between Elizabeth and her sister and her husband and their efforts are much appreciated. And I am already looking forward to the next issue!
If you would like a sneak peak at some of the projects you can visit the Nuno magazine website or check out a twenty page preview that is also good for three complete projects with photos, instructions and patterns. So if you can't spare the fiver, you can at least get a taste of what you're missing. But, I think that five dollars is a small price to pay to help support both independent publications and a fellow eco friendly crafter.
So get out your toilet paper rolls and wool sweaters, go for a gorgeous summer day walk and collect some pretty pebbles and sit down with this magazine and a mug of your favourite fair trade-shade grown-organic coffee and be inspired by both the forest and Elizabeth Abernathy.
