Voilà! The cover of Issue #7
The next issue of CreatedHere magazine is almost ready! I’ve shared the cover on social media, a part of which is seen above here, and there are just some final tweaks to make before the launch next week. That’s right! The launch of Issue #7 will be May 4th, 5-8 pm at 116 Princess Street, a heritage building in Uptown Saint John that is being renovated for a social enterprise, Outflow’s Catapult coffee shop/studio that will open in the fall. In traditional Maritime fashion, you may know it as where 1000 Villages and Anglican House used to be. It will soon be used to employ people who need a job and provide them with a community of support as they work to move forward in their lives.
I just started working for Outflow and I am super excited to be a part of what they’re doing. Come pick up a magazine as you wander around uptown for the Gallery Hop and get a sneak peek of this space! It’s a bit rough still but so full of potential. (Facebook event here)
Here is a little behind-the-scenes peek at the photo shoot that gave us the cover of this issue. In collaboration with stylist Becky Wallace and photographer Nienke Izurieta, we gathered pieces by local artists and added delicious local food to create a unique, simple New Brunswick lunch at Becky’s in-laws’ family cottage on the shores of the Bay of Fundy. We wanted to show how incorporating local into your home can be easy and oh so beautiful. It was really fun to work with Nienke and Becky, they both have such original ideas and creative energy. The day itself was actually quite chilly, but the feeling of freshness and spring in the air comes across really well in the photos. One of the perks was bringing home half a buttercream cake from East Coast Bistro
Just wait til you see the rest of the photos!
