Arizona's Current Issue...

April-May
2013 Issue

The Country Register of Arizona is published every two months. The time seems to fly by between issues.

For those who prefer to read on-line we are now publishing the complete paper here for you on our web site and will leave back issues on as well. How often we have been called and someone has given their paper away or misplaced it and needed the name or location of a shop, a tea room or wanted to know where there was a paper close to them.

The print edition will still be available as usual in each advertising shop and other select rack locations. Some people will always and forever prefer to sit down in a cozy chair with a cup of tea and read through the paper edition page by page. The younger generations are more apt to go on-line and so we hope to just broaden our readership and bring more customers to the shops because of this extra exposure.

Cover Artist featured in this issue:
“Garden Tea” 
by Monica Sabolla Gruppo

Publisher and Art Director Lolly Konecky says, “This photograph by Monic Sabolla Gruppo was perfect for our spring tea issue. It’s a reminder to take time out to enjoy our lovely Arizona weather before the summer heat hits!” 
Lolly and fellow Publisher Barb Stillman were drawn to the lovely photographs of artist Monica Sabolla Gruppo. 
Born and raised in Italy, Monica Sabolla Gruppo inherited the love for brushes and colors from her maternal grandfather, an award-winning painter. Monica has spent 20+ years nurturing her creative soul through painting, crafting and photography. Always growing and evolving, experimenting and trying new techniques, she eventually decided to “answer her calling” and devote herself to painting as a full time profession.
Monica lives in Italy with her beloved husband and their sweet Golden Retriever. She is passionate about infusing creativity, beauty and inspiration in every aspect of her life.
Monica’s artwork is licensed by Linda McDonald, Inc., Charlotte, NC, 704-370-0057.
