it’s no secret that i am a crazy, huge fan of female entrepreneurs. i think it does something for the female spirit to do something, really do something that she is good at, that gives her validation, and makes her feel like she is contributing, and making a difference, no matter the arena!

i am inspired by all of the women who seek to share their talents and vision and when approached to help spread the word about their insights and inspirations, i jump in, wholeheartedly!!

sandi, or bucket (you must read her bio; it had me smiling fondly, like i had to meet her and take her to lunch because she was so interesting.), is one of those women. she had an idea and now she is making it happen! sandi wanted to be the editor and chief of a magazine. so she started a publication, and named herself the boss of it. she polled interest for content, reached out to people and friends she admires to be guest writers, and guest sharers, and after time she made her vision a reality and now she is ready to share it with all of us!!

this is just a snippet of what she is offering in the first issue:

Join us for the debut issue of The Sandbucket.  This issue is chalked full of fun articles.  Come be inspired to get reading with your children.  Gather new recipes that you’ll want to try out for yourself.  Get to know Denise Demarchis of Matilda Jane a bit better.  Read of the giving adventures of families in Atlanta as they went out to feed the homeless.  Gather tips from photographers Lexi Vornberg and Ashlee Raubach on how to prepare and get the most from your shoots.  And read points from Shawni Pothier about “Being Enough.”  All this and many more articles that touch upon raising and teaching our children.  There is even a fun teen section where we meet some real teens and talk about their talents as well as some fun DIY projects.  Each page of the magazine is filled with beautiful and useful content, never being interrupted with ads.  Only useful content that can strengthen you and your families.
