the Francophile giveaway - Marie Claire Idees magazines

Onward and upward with the de-cluttering giveaways. For the last few years I've subscribed to the lovely magazine from France, Marie Claire Idees. It really is a wonderland of creative inspiration. Check out these covered buttons, they're embroidered!

From skincare to decorating to sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery, and cooking, this magazine covers it all. In the back of each issue is a glossary of patterns and instructions on how to make each of the projects. I know I've received more than five issues, but thanks to my stellar organizing skills I can only find five issues.

This giveaway is for five issues of Marie Claire Idees magazine, namely Nos. 76, 77, 78, 83 and 84 (now I know what's missing, eh?).

I'll ship them anywhere in the world. To enter, just leave a comment (with your email if it's not included on your Blogger profile), and the winner will be chosen on Friday, April 29 at 5:00 p.m. CST by Good luck!

And just in case you missed it, I'm also giving away four knitting books, so check this post for details.

  3. I can't believe I never purchased this magazine (and I'm French!)... I guess it seems a bit old-fashioned to young seamstresses, whereas from your pictures it's not. I'll try to go and check it for myself!

  4. oooh, I would love to take them off your hands!

  5. Ack! I looked. And now I am going to do a bit of spring decluttering myself. Its the rght thing to do.
