Missouri's Current Issue...

May/June
2017 Issue

The Country Register of Missouri 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:

Deb Strain

An art teacher for nine years, Deb Strain left teaching in 1994 to devote herself to her family and the development of her own art.  Her husband, three children and twin grandsons are her pride and joy.  Their beloved Saltbox home is filled with laughter, creativity and love.  It is in the peaceful woods surrounding their home where Deb finds her inspiration.  Drawing on memories of growing up in Ohio and times spent with family and friends, she seeks to convey a kinder, gentler way of life. 

“Art is my passion, but my “real-life” love is my family,” explains Deb.  “My two daughters are both artists and my husband and son are our biggest supporters. We are very fortunate to share such a wonderfully bonding interest.” Deb feels continually blessed by her family’s closeness and being able to follow her dream to create art and share it with others. Her art can be found world-wide on a number of products from fabric to greeting cards to figurines.
