SCT Magazine Giveaway

Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

Hello and Happy Friday! Has Spring arrived where you are? The weather is trying really hard to be spring-like where I am, but Mother Nature isn’t sure she is ready to say goodbye to Winter yet. Honestly, though, I cannot wait to see little flowers popping up in the garden. I so love my garden!

This beautiful magazine is available in hardcopy from select retailers, including many Barnes & Noble, Books A Million and Chapter’s/Indigo stores! The Spring 2017 issue can be viewed online for free here:
