I don't know where I've been, but I recently found out that Paul Lowe, the 40-something food and prop stylist behind the wildly popular blog Sweet Paul has taken his unique talents and used them to produce an unbelievably wonderful online magazine. It just read through the Holiday Issue which was released on Tuesday and I was blown away! Like his blog, it is full of beautiful crafts (that is usually a contradiction in my book, but they are seriously awesome) and incredible recipes. Add the stunning photography and it will inspire you again and again. This issue includes articles like making your own wrapping paper, decor ideas for an antique Christmas, how-to's for super chic handmade jewelry, homemade wreaths, and TONS of great cookie recipes (and that is just mentioning a few of the articles). All the back issues of his magazine are also available on his site, including the Spring Issue devoted to Kids! Carve out a block of time for this because you won't be able to tear yourself away. Here are just a few photographs from the Holiday Issue - stunning!
