We're sending the Summer 2010 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors Studios off to press this week and I am both excited and relieved. Excited because this is one of our most colorful issues, with a wide variety of studios and a lot of new features thanks to our expanded format . Relieved because my studio is done at last--and I took it right down to the wire.
In fact, I was so immersed in the upcoming issue that I didn't notice something important--the Spring 2010 issue of Studios had sold out on our website! We were able to get some extra copies from the printer, so there are some now in the Interweave store, and you might still be able to find some in book and craft stores.
But the bottom line is, if you haven't gotten your hands on a copy yet, you better hurry. You don't want to miss 101 organization and storage tips, Elsie Flannigan's super-hip space, Susan Fabian's perfect playhouse or Jenn Mason and Shona Cole's tips for combining art-making with kids.
Be sure to check out our Online Extras for that issue, too.
In the meantime, here's a sneak peek of our Summer issue, on newsstands May 18.
The entrance to Caryn Duncan's art studio and teaching space:
A glimpse of glittering jewels that Lovey Johnson-Debrow uses in her mixed-media fabric and photo collages:
