Happy Birthday Inside Out! Inside Out is 10 years old and their special anniversary issue is out now. There is a special gift with every issue, a gorgeous anniversary tea-towel which comes in grey, green and blue. I was hoping I would get the grey one and I did! Above is the subscriber's cover so the copies in store will look somewhat different. Wow, has it really been 10 years? I have been a loyal reader since day one and still own the very first issue (actually I still have EVERY issue but we'll talk magazine hoarding another day;). Want to see it?
Here it is, the very first issue. You've come a long way Inside Out. I feel like I have grown up reading this magazine. I was 22 when I bought my first copy, and now I'm umm.... well, you can do the math ;) Luckily they changed from monthly issues to bi-monthly issues a few years ago or I would have serious problems with magazine storage!
One of the features I loved in the first issue is about the sisters who formed the furniture company Zuster (back then it was called Sibbel Furniture Design). I love to see family working together, especially in a creative field. It can be tough sometimes, as I know working with my husband's family for the past 5 years, but it can also be amazing. I don't know when I would see my husband if I didn't work with him, especially right now when we have been working crazy-long hours.
Anyhoo back on subject, I was so excited to see Zuster featured in the 10 year anniversary issue (First issue on left, 10 year Anniversary issue on right). There is something so lovely about that, I'm sure it can't be a coincidence. There is so much more to love in this very special issue of Inside Out including an online auction of gorgeous artwork to support the charity HeartKids - view and bid online here. Happy Birthday and I hope to be reading you in another ten years time!
