Guide Review - Village D-Lights, A Publication for Village Enthusiasts

Great pictures, lots of how-tos, fun articles and ideas galore. That about sums up Village D-Lights, a bi-monthly publication from Pioneer Communications. The magazine has a friendly feeling of community, with pictures of displays submitted by readers, as well as numerous comments from readers throughout the magazine.

A recent issue had an article on animating parts of a village, as well as animating coordinating Hallmark ornaments. Whew. It's a little beyond my skill level, but I also know a lot of folks who would view this as a fun challenge.

The same issue had a how-to on creating a glass ball ornament wreath, a simple project that anyone could easily tackle. This along with the 'Just so You Know!' an idea and tip column, a Q & A column, Collector Spotlight, reviews and Gathering reports makes it a publication that a village collector will delight in and read from cover to cover.

Subscription price is $27. for six issue.
