So, you’ve read them from cover to cover, including the adverts. On more than one occasion. They’ve been next to your bed, in your bathroom, in your kitchen, on your sofa, in your handbag and finally, in your magazine rack.
I am, of course, talking about scrapping magazines (although this post could equally apply to non-scrapping magazines, but I’m not sure such magazines exist anymore!). I have, today, had a cull of more than a year’s worth of the American scrapping magazine Creating Keepsakes ~ I tear out pages showing layouts that really speak to me and I tear out whole articles that inspire me. They go into an A4 landscape sized notebook (with scrapbooked front & back covers, naturally) and the remnants go into the recycling, accompanied by a quiet thank you from me.
The thank you is said quietly because The Brainy One already thinks that I am a “funny little sausage” and I wouldn’t want to have him add to that description, if it’s all the same to you!
