For those of you who do not know about this great magazine, I suggest that you try and find a copy. Marie-Claire idées comes from France and has tons of great articles and ideas on decoration, knitting, sewing, crafting and so on. This " exemplaire " just got out on the newsstand, but i am still searching for it in my area. I am really anxious to get my hands on it. My daughter who lives and studies in Brussels bought it last week and she told me there is this sweet crocheted handbag pattern for us to create and i want to give it a try. This is just one of the numerous projects Marie-Claire idées offers. You can read this magazine over and over again and there is always something new to discover. The pages are so colorful, the articles interesting and the craft projects always pretty and accessible to all. I always get my money's worth each time i get a copy of Marie-Clair idées.
