The Art of Living
The summer edition of the RUGS Magazine is an escape from reality. We're taken away from our noisy world into a quiet respite of New England beaches and serene settings that are sure to inspire us to make rugs, big and small.
Explore rug-hooking artists from Japan, Russia, Canada, and the USA. Relax as you read about textile artists and painters who are certain to capture your inspiration to make beautiful rugs. RUGS brings contemporary, traditional, and primitive styles to you, so there is something lovely for everyone to enjoy.
RUGS shows you the impact that words have in artistic rugs and textile art. See how artists express their thoughts using wool, cotton, threads, yarns, and fabric to create magnificently powerful messages, and we show you how you can set your inner wildness free.
Summer brings us to the water; lakes, rivers, and seas, so it's no wonder we show you the psychology of colors that reflect water and flowers. Learn what moods are created by teal (blue/green), aqua, and green. Knowing how colors affect our moods, we get creative and apply this knowledge into our rugs when color planning.
Artful and beautifully designed trading cards, stationary, and posters bring a little bit of that whimsy and play into your life. The trading cards are something you can collect and post on your inspiration mood boards, or trade them with a friend. We are never to old to play, right? I want to bring joy and creativity into your life that inspires you and moves you to play. Afterall, play is all part of the art of living, and we mustn't stop, but keep playing to keep our hearts young.
The art of cooking also brings you some fresh ideas for easy summer recipes that are healthy and sinfully tasty on the taste-buds. I explore recipes and try them myself before sharing them with you, so that I know they are decadently delicious and manageable with a busy schedule.
So if you are tired of the ho-hum humdrum and want to read and see fresh ideas for the art of living and hooking rugs, give my summer edition a try. Order your copy or subscription in my shoppe.
