  1. Thank you, I am so excited! I found your Willow and Sage at Wegmans ,Specialty grocery ,in Erie, Pa.
    Absolutely love every article and diy,and homemade essentials in your magazine!
    Takes me back to the natural basic finds and nature!

  2. I love winter, The first beautiful snowfall. Walks in the woods with my Labrador Retriever,Hunter. Making homemade crafts,reading and Knitting by the fire. My granddaughter pops in and we are off to a winter wonderland, whether its a nature walk. Finding animals tracks, berries and So many beautiful little things outside. And I always take care of my birdies, so they stay full of food. So many fun things to do. (shared but ,not sure if this is right)

  3. I have purchased every issue since I found this magazine and I can honestly say I have loved each and every one! I gave my daughter a subscription for Christmas last year and she has fallen in love as well. Thanks for an amazing magazine! I totally look forward to each one. Tree Freeman

  4. My secret winter wish is losing power just for a few hours in the daytime, when it’s not too cold. Suddenly it’s silent–no humming appliances, no television, no music in the background except for the steady beat of rain on the skylights. Cuddling with a blanket in my cozy rocking chair, I grab one of the back issues of my favorite well worn Stampington magazine and enjoy peaceful “unplugged” me time.
