New Magazine 

I seldom recommend things unless I really find them wonderful/useful/essential. However, there is a new magazine out (2 issues so far) Creative Techniques.

The editors have put together some terrific articles presenting projects that use embroidery, computer skills, photography, etc. The projects themselves might not be to your taste, but the technique instructions are gems of clarity.

They include articles about crafting/creating in general and specific projects at various skill levels.

The current issue includes fabric paints project using leaves; cell phone camera techniques;alcohol inks/computer imaging for a wall hanging; diaper bag for a trendy mom; an excellent article on copyright; woodburning for the modern world; making iron on transfers to dress up babywear; new and unique uses for Microsoft Publisher; printing pdf images on parchment and/or sticker paper and applying the images to bottles, etc; jewelry using computer images and creating finished jewelry; finger painting; using image-editing software to create exciting images and printing them on fabric sheets; printing on canvas to create a memorable collage; article on typefaces; all the bits to create a girls poker night out; printing on waterslide decal paper; article on image resolution; scrapbook pages with military themes; article on using blending techniques in Photoshop; decorating gift tins and much, much more.

I've subscribed.
