I just looked back at what I wrote for the ‘sneak peek’ post on Volume 10 back at the very end of August, and laughed to myself about how I described that issue as ‘the one created during the global pandemic’! Turns out Volume 11 can come under that same heading! But, as I write this, the timeline for coming out of lockdown is being announced and I think we can all finally see a glimmer of hope for better times ahead.
I’m looking forward to getting out and about and visiting some of our lovely stockists again and perhaps even restarting our Seek Inspire Create events in the second half of 2021 if we can. Finally there is a sense of optimism in the air after a really long, tough year. I want to thank you again for your support of my independent business throughout the past 12 months, it really and truly means the world.
So, onto the sneak peek of Volume 11! Here is the gorgeous new cover shot by Kasia Fiszer….
Our loose theme for Volume 11 is Grow. This felt like an apt follow on from Volume 10’s ‘nurture’ theme, when we wanted to feel cocooned and cared for. We hope that soon we will be able to burst out, open our petals and spread out into the world again! The concept of growth is a constant in our lives and is relevant in so many respects, both personally and professionally – the changing of the seasons around us, our own personal growth and that of our creativity, careers and businesses.
The theme is interpreted through homes, creative spaces, recipes and ideas that represent the idea of growth in a variety of ways. We share inspiration and ideas directly influenced by the natural world, whether that is growing our own, bringing the outside indoors, or finding solace through interacting with nature. We discuss topics such as redefining the idea of growth within business as well as exploring creative spaces that are physically connected with living, growing things, and some where its inhabitants have experienced their own type of growth.
The issue is now available to PRE-ORDER and you will receive your copy in early April, hopefully just in time for the Easter break. Or, to make sure you don’t miss out Autumn edition, you can purchase both copies as a SUBSCRIPTION. If you’d like a little peek inside before you buy, then scroll down for some of the lovely images featured in Volume 11…
We can’t wait until April so we can hold the new issue in our hands! We hope you will enjoy delving into it when it arrives.
