When it comes to magazines, I don’t tend to bother with fashion and beauty much because, let’s face it, I’m not exactly one to care about what’s ‘trendy’. I like colour, I like pattern, I like anything old, and if possible, I like it to be mustard or teal coloured. Craft magazines, though, are my absolute weakness – particularly if they’ve got sections dedicated to eclectic interiors, vintage finds and great websites; yes, Mollie Makes, I’m looking straight at you.
I remember when Mollie Makes first came out; I read the whole thing from cover to cover in one sitting, and then spent the rest of the month counting down to the next issue. Since then, they’ve branched out into special magazines that seem to be bi-annual (do correct me if I’m wrong, someone!); the first was Mollie Makes Home, and now Mollie Makes Mama has arrived. If you’ve got children, you’re expecting your first, you’re about to become an Uncle / Auntie / Grandparent / Godparent or have any children in your life in any way at all, you’re going to want to have a flick through this amazing magazine. Packed full of great tutorials, amazing websites, creative resources and appearances from blogging greats such as Emily, Hannah and Kat, I think it could possibly be the best Mollie Makes yet.
