You guys!!! Today is THE DAY! From the Front Porch Magazine is officially here!! The brand new, premier issue is LIVE today for your viewing pleasure!!
I have poured my heart into this gorgeous digital publication, and today it has finally come to life!
I want to show you a few of the highlights, and give a special shout-out to my awesome contributors, then you can peruse the pages as often as you like!
The cover was a lot of fun to shoot! You can see the details of the cover shoot HERE. I had a little help with the styling from you awesome Periscope viewers!
Let me introduce you to my contributors and show you a few highlights!
My sweet friend Bernadette is an amazing DIYer with a gorgeous blog called Old House Chic. We met at Haven Conference this summer and have become super close friends. If she didn’t live in another state, we’d totally be business partners, too! I’ve never met anyone who gets my brain and how I work so well!
Bernadette created the DIY Chicken Nest Box plans exclusively for From the Front Porch! Y’all, it’s awesome. In the magazine, you’ll get a FREE printable PDF that shows you step-by-step how to build it, what supplies you need, and a separate cut list you can take to the store.
She also poured her heart out into the Heart Candy story. I seriously cried when I read it. It’s very touching and heartfelt and I know you’ll love it.
Katie is a sweet friend who blogs at Twin Stripe. She helped curate the content for the home decor article. She worked really hard behind-the-scenes contacting each blogger and curating beautiful and inspiring spaces for you to enjoy.
A special thanks to Laura from The Turquoise Home. She graciously invited us into her home, virtually of course, to share her fall home tour with you on our pages!
Another awesome contributor is Lesley from Chaotically Creative. From the Front Porch wouldn’t be complete without a Tour of the South – a handy state-by-state guide to fabulous fall festivals and family fun! (Say that 3 times fast!)
I guarantee you’ll find something to do this fall with your family in the South!
And, I’m super proud of my final contributor. When I mentioned my magazine to my daughter Marley, she immediately asked how she could contribute. She asked if she could create a fashion and beauty article, and initially, I’ll admit, I was skeptical as to how a 13-year old could create a fashion & beauty article in a magazine for adult women.
Well, she did it. And it’s perfect!
I absolutely love the outfits she put together – they are both definitely outfits I would wear with pride. She has excellent fashion sense, and put together a very professionally finished article I hope you enjoy!
There’s also a really special and beautifully designed exclusive FREE printable that you can frame and use to decorate for fall! My incredibly talented friend Bethany from Pitter & Glink designed the printable, and the stunning watercolor images you’ll see throughout the magazine were hand-painted by Trina from Love Wonder!
Now, without further ado, I give to you the debut issue of From the Front Porch Magazine! Come on in!
