Issue 12 is here!

What does Issue 12 mean? Firstly, it means three years of tinyStudio Creative Life magazine! Woohoo! With four issues per year, this issue marks the third volume of our annual content, and I couldn’t be more proud. When I started tinyStudio, I had a vision of what I wanted to create; it was based on my ideas about the kind of magazine I wanted to read myself, as a fiber artist. It included an endless curiosity about all kinds of

One of my big goals with tinyStudio Creative Life magazine is to create a publication for and about our community, I love the connections and relationships we are able to be part of through our online activities and now through the pages of the tinyStudio magazine. With this in mind, I offer advertising primarily to those who contribute articles to each issue (as free ad space) so readers can find them easily and learn more about what they do, and

tinyStudio Creative Life magazine: Issue 10!

We have just released Issue 10, and we decided there was no better way to start a new year of tinyStudio Creative Life magazine than with a big splash of glorious colour! I just love this photo of Lissy, Rudi, and Christan of Lissy Cole Designs!

New Purchase Option!

Since the very beginning of tinyStudio, I have kept all our current issues available to subscribers only. We LOVE our subscribers, their support is what keeps us going from issue to issue, video podcast to video podcast 🙂 I want to be sure that our subscribers know just how much we appreciate that support.

tinyStudio Creative Life: Issue 6

Here I am back again, to announce the publication of Issue SIX of tinyStudio Creative Life magazine! The time has sped by since our previous issue, but we have been super busy behind the scenes getting this issue ready to go. I know I say this every time, but every issue I am working on quickly becomes my favourite 🙂 This one is no exception! The gentle focus or theme in this issue is ‘Conscious Crafting’, something that I think

Issue Five is out now! The gentle focus or theme in this issue is ‘Of Nature’, and of course there is a whole lot of nature to be inspired by, enthused about, and to revel in! When I was planning this issue I was thinking of all the natural colours of wool and fibers, the ways nature inspires so many artists in their creativity and thinking. Then I dug down even deeper and started thinking about the ‘nature’ of who we

Minimalism, TinyStudio Style!

Let me begin this with explaining that I am not a minimalist. I would like to be but I find living with other people (the family) nullifies any attempt I make at creating a simple, sparse, minimalistic environment. As well as this, my own activities deny me the opportunity for the ‘perfect’ clean, white, spacious studio of my dreams and rather, drop me in the midst of stash fiber, cones of yarn, tools, paper, drawing equipment, weaving looms and tools,
