Hello, hello there, sweeties!
I am a bit late with today’s post and in a minute I will share some odds and ends – but let me begin with something special – cover your ears please…
FEATURING reached its Thunderclap goal and just now the message and name was blasted out across Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. Oh, and I hope you have seen this review that Nathalie Kalbach wrote on her blog? WOWZAH, thank you Nat!!!
FEATURING magazine sure captured people’s attention! A major campaign starts now – read all about it HERE.
I have been busy promoting the Thunderclap page of ‘my baby’ FEATURING magazine.
Next week, FEATURING will start a promotion Campaign that will run for at least three weeks and we want to start that campaign with a “Thundering clap”… but we need a lot of support to do that – 500 supporters, to be exactly.
At the moment, our Thunderclap promo counts 155 supporters – so we are not even close to the goal… Have you joined yet??? No??? Help me out here then!
Please support FEATURING magazine and donate a tweet or facebook status update here:
Not convinced that you should give your support yet?
Then maybe this blog post by Robin Walsh can give you just that last push to support us….
I did not have much time to be creative last week, but I do keep up with the Chronicles art journal. Come on in to view some older spreads from past weeks I had not published yet…
Riikka’s ‘Creative Christmas Calendar’ is in full swing -
every day she opens a ‘window’ on her blog Paperiliitin.
Today is day eleven…
… and guess who was behind it?
Pfew…. the next issue of FEATURING is at the printer’s office and will be
out next week! After the second issue took extra time to get out to the public,
I decided we should try hard to get back on track and in to the schedule…
So I whipped up the team and MAN, they did such a great job (or do you
think they were afraid I would punish them if they didn’t? )
Well… they are not revolting yet so I guess they were OK with it
and we are all so proud of this issue! Take alone the cover:
Yeah, right – and now you want to know what’s inside I guess…
well, here you go:

A Glimpse inside this issue can be seen in the PREVIEW
And, last but not least, FEATURING has a surprise for all readers
who live outside Europe. The magazine managed to lower the shipping
costs for customers who purchase from outside Europe. Now that is
an extra reason to want to order an issue right away, isn’t it?
Well, go ahead, PRE-ORDER/BUY your issue now (I will wait…)
Done? YAY! Thanks!
On to the haiku then.
I searched for a ‘book title haiku’ that would celebrate the release
of issue 3 and – oh miracle – I found one too!
|Het innerlijk vuur
Van schrijver tot boekenkast
De grote wereld
||The Fire within
From Writer to Book Case
The big world
As always, I submit this haiku to Haiku my Heart Friday
Last Tuesday I announced my annual “Top 2000 Creative and Musical
Blog Party” – (hm, that’s what you get when you try to fit it all into the title)
- you can find the post here on my blog. There was no room left
to show you any pages I made, so I do it now…
Last week I was over my head busy getting issue 3 of FEATURING
ready to go to the printer’s office.
Yes, that’s right – you heard well:
Because the second issue was later then we originally scheduled,
we worked our *** off to catch up so that we can bring out this third
issue before Christmas. I’m so proud of my team, my beloved designer
and all the contributors who pulled up their socks to make it happen.
And you know what? There’s just some finishing touches to take care of
and then we have a go!
I recommend you keep an eye on the FEATURING site or follow us
on facebook, so you won’t miss the release.
You may not believe it, but I managed to get some art journaling done
in between. Just a few minutes here and there… but the result is that
I can show you two pages in my ‘weird journal.’
Sorry for the noise guys, but I have reasons to celebrate this week…
Yep, the second issue of FEATURING is out and MAN am I proud
of my team – the magazine is again filled with wonderful articles!
I also thank the contributors who send in articles and art – you guys
are all amazing and made this issue as fabulous as the debut issue.
Maybe even ‘fabulouser.’ (I know that is not a word but I’m so excited
I made it up )
Issue #2 of Featuring Magazine is finished
and heading to the printers!
The second issue looks again fabulous and is jam packed
with talented artists, interesting stories and all kinds of art.
We will give away 30 inchies to readers who pre-order
issue #2 before September 21. These will appear on the
back of our third issue.
Visit the FEATURING website to find a brief summary of content and/or flip
through some pages in the preview. We also keep you updated on facebook.
Today is Friday and you all know what that means: Haiku day!
