I have to dish about my new favorite magazine “Sweet Paul“.  The minute I opened it, I could tell from its heavy paper stock, matte finish, and dark yet deliciously tempting pictures…that I was hooked!  Originally started as a blog by Paul Lowe Einlyng in 2007, this publication features the most amazing mix of food, crafts, and decorating that I have seen in quite awhile.  With the turn of each page there is new recipe I want to try, an artist I am dying to meet, or a project that exudes originality while somehow lacking the fear of perfection! Ahhh that’s it…this magazine does not compel you to live up to the perfection of Martha Stewart, it does not promote the flawless and often sterile interiors of Elle Decor, but instead provides it’s readers with cool, avant garde, accessible ideas that are sure to satisfy!  It’s no wonder…considering Paul Lowe Einlyng’s motto, “fullkommenhet er kjedelig” (adopted from his Norwegian grandmother) “perfection is boring.”  Take a look at some of the delectable recipes and content below…you will not be disappointed!!!!!
