Nebraska's Current Issue...

2017 Issue

The Country Register of Nebraska 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:

Cover Artist Tina Ledbetter

After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, Tina Ledbetter had every intention of starting her career in the Fashion Industry. Venturing off course a bit, she has never looked back.   

Her first job was at a small studio as a production artist/logo designer Then after getting married, and three kids in three and a half years, she decided to make extra money crafting seemed to be the way to go; crafting led to decorative painting.  Designing her own patterns and then painting the designs on her kid’s wagons, furniture, sweat shirts, she even hand painted gift wrap, too.  Eventually she bought a scroll saw and painted wood cut outs. She sent her new wood patterns to a few craft magazines who bought the patterns! From there she created decorative painting books, delved into scrapbooking, cross-stitch kits, home décor, and other ventures until pursuing the licensing venue and connecting with Linda McDonald, Inc.
