A labor of love: Celebrate Home Magazine is born!

2 10 2012

The Fall 2012 Celebrate Home Magazine debuts today on the first day of October with the mantra of “making the ordinary extraordinary.”

Published quarterly, Celebrate Home Magazine focuses on family, food, entertaining, gardening, art, crafts, hobbies, personal expression, hospitality, pets, decorating, communities and neighborhoods.

The time has come for a magazine like this—highlighting ordinary people doing extraordinary things. No matter your budget, your skills or the size of your space, we’ll enthusiastically share experiences of those who nurture the space they call home. Let us inspire you!

I’ve teamed up with the talented and renowned Barbara Kelley, whose editorial expertise has graced Hearing Loss Magazine for more than 20 years. She brings her passion for hospitality and her publishing experience to this brand new publication! We are both passionate about all things home and welcome you to open the door and come on in. We also welcome you to be contributors. This magazine is for you and about you.

Congratulations, Cindy. The magazine looks great (and I know how much hard work that represents on your part). I look forward to delving into the individual articles.

Cindy: Lovely, just lovely. You all did a wonderful job. Are hard copies going to be available?

You asked me a few weeks ago about writing something about home…here’s my submission…will it work? Do you still need a picture of me?

Two years ago we retired and bought a new house along with a house full of new furniture…gone was the mismatched stuff…gone was the beloved recliner chair…gone was a ton of the stuff that 33 years of a life together had amassed. I quickly learned though that the new house and the new furniture did not make a home. I couldn’t sleep one night and got up and wandered around feeling a little like I was staying in a borrowed house. I looked around and nothing was familiar and the sounds and colors were strange. What this house needed was memories! I set about planning a “Blessing of the House” ceremony. I invited all my new friends and church family and soon the house was bursting with laughter and joy. Today I look around and every room has a memory of friends entertained and children and grandchildren loved. Love this house!
