Welcome to the first issue of Mood 13 Magazine: a Taylor Swift-inspired project magazine created by Swifties for Swifties, featuring party ideas, crafts, sweets, mixers, and more.
“It’s a whole mood up in here!”
This magazine is the brainchild of myself, Christa, a Swiftie mom, with a passion for art, creativity, entrepreneurship, glitter, cats, and of course, all things Taylor. I arrived at the idea to publish a magazine after spending countless hours creating projects inspired by Taylor. But I knew I couldn’t do it alone, and why would I want to? Projects are always more fun with a buddy!
Once Carissa joined the Mood 13 party, project days turned into nights —the kinds of projects that evaporate time, provoke bellowing laughter, and leave a trail of glitter and empty wine glasses. Many of which were emptied in front of an audience of judgy felines and eye-rolling family members—but we’re used to it; we’re Swifties. Our love for Taylor knows no bounds, and let’s be honest, neither does yours.
With that in mind one very late night with no less than 13 rolls of ribbon, paint-stained hands, and glitter in places we’ve yet to discover, we decided these memories and projects were worth sharing and never looked back.
We’ve set out to help you express your Swiftie mood. From concert costumes to bracelets for your favs and even elegant expressions of our love for Taylor to decorate your homes, we have a myriad of ideas for you.
Just imagine the sweet feral screech of satisfaction echoing a once-was dining room turned craft explosion or the unexpected sun shower invading your magical butterfly garden extravaganza; these are the memories to hold on to because they will hold on to you.
We love creating and brainstorming new ideas. As daydreamers and night thinkers shaping tangible keepsakes from the intangible highlights of our icon, we aim to ignite your creativity with our project guides as you empty wine glasses over sparkly messes of your own (assuming you’re of legal drinking age of course).
In celebration of Mood 13’s first issue, here’s a toast to our real friends and the legendary melodies and moments of Miss Americana herself.
