International Addresses: Magazine subscriptions offered at Amazon.com can only be shipped within the 50 United States, APO/FPO address and U.S. Protectorates. We are unable to process magazines to other destinations at this time. Please contact the magazine's publisher for further assistance.
When to Expect Your First Issue: Magazine subscriptions ordered at Amazon.com are shipped to you by the magazine's publisher. The first issue of a weekly magazine should arrive within 4-6 weeks of your order. The first issue of a monthly magazine should arrive within 6-10 weeks, unless otherwise noted.
Once you've placed an order at Amazon.com, it can take one to two weeks for your subscription to be received and scheduled by the publisher. Your subscription is then added to the publisher's next production cycle and shipped via standard mail. For example, if your monthly subscription was ordered and received by the publisher in November, and the December issue has already shipped, your order may be added to the January mailing. You can find out more information, including how to contact the publisher about your subscription, in Amazon's Magazine Subscription Manager.
Renewing Your Subscription: If you are ordering as a renewal to the same name and address as the current subscription, the publisher will add the Amazon order to your current subscription. For example, if you have 5 issues left and you add 12 through Amazon, you will now have 17 issues left on your subscription. Please note that the expiration date in the Magazine Subscription Manager will not reflect if you were already on file with the publisher. We will work with the publisher to ensure that you still receive all of the issues left on your subscription.
Publication Frequency: Magazines which show "irregular" availability are those which are not published according to a regular schedule. If you place an order for such a magazine, you will receive new issues as soon as they are available.

I haven't done too many of the exact projects that are in the magazine, but it gives me ideas for other projects. We are both pretty poor and in our late 20s so it's nice to see some ideas for how to make the stuff in our houses look like it came out of the pages of an IKEA catalog rather than just from the Goodwill.
Some of the other reviewers complained about some of the projects being totally obvious or stupid, but I guess it doesn't bother me if there's something really simple. (I might have time for it.) And even if it's obvious to me, it probably isn't obvious to everyone.
I heard complaints about the recipes taking up a lot of the magazine, and it's true. There are a lot of interesting recipes, and I like that. The current issues has some tasty-sounding soup recipes that I'm looking forward to trying.
Each issue has an article about an hip artist or designer and how they got their Freaking Awesome Job. I think those are interesting. I like seeing the various kinds of career paths that people have taken to become successful in their fields. (Hopefully I'm on one of these tracks!)
I also LOVE the hipster lifestyle articles that some other reviewers were dissing. I like seeing other people's cool houses, studios, and creative office and retail spaces. The photography for these is usually pretty awesome.
Overall, I love this magazine.
Hipster. That's a word someone else used to describe this magazine, and it's a good one. If you can imagine the pretend people in an Urban Outfitters commercial having a DIY penthouse apartment, this is exactly the magazine they'd dash down to the corner magazine stand to pick up. For those of us who live in the real world, keep looking. I understand that there's a magazine dedicated to green crafting now. That might be a good alternative.
Don't let my minor trouble stop you from ordering ReadyMade, the creativity addicts "fix". There's even a "Macgyver" challenge in each issue. Last month's challenge was to make something using old encyclopedias. The next challenge is Scrabble Tiles. ReadyMade magazine makes you want to scavenge your house for an object you can make into something else (practical or just wonderful). NO, you cannot use family members as projects! LOL! Get the magazine; you won't regret it.
The best asset of the magazine is the photography and "other materials". It is apparent that the creative juices are over wrought. Practical solutions to everyday problems are rarely workable or something a person could live with.
My wife ordered this for me because I had taken it for a year. I wish she had not. The magazine is expensive for what you get and if you get a good idea an issue - you have struck gold.
The magazine also includes other fun articles: brief reviews of esoteric new products; tips for saving energy; and other miscellany that shares the magazine's distinctively upbeat, you-can-make-it-better tone.
Though I don't find everything to be my taste in the magazine, quite a bit of it is and I always find things which inspire me to be innovative and resourceful. I also love EVERY recipe I have made from the mag (including a pear anise pie as well as homemade cheez-its!). If you want to get a taste for the magazine, you can read different articles on the magazine website!
