It's true. One of the most popular fashion magazines, Marie Claire, does have a craft magazine. However, I hate to get you all excited then spill some bad news: The entire magazine is in French.

I discovered Marie Claire Idees when I was studying abroad this past semester in Paris and I fell in love with it. Every page inspired me whether through colors, shapes, or just plain cuteness. If you don't speak French, don't be discouraged—the vibrant pages will surely offer some fantastic Parisian inspiration.

This magazine is published four times a year and is difficult to find on the newsstands in the U.S. However, if you would like to look around their website and the blog, here is the link. I'm sure you'll find something that will get those juices flowing!!!

Here in Germany I even can enjoy a TV programm done by Marie Claire Idees and Marie Claire Maison. It's running daily on ARTE, a joint French-German station. Maybe you can receive it via satelite????

And Marie Claire Idees also has an own blog, oh yes!

Something more to save up for!
