Finding Inspiration

I LOVE magazines!  Can you tell?

I feel bad for my husband because I hoard them for YEARS, and then insist he moves the boxes from house to house.  {Sigh, sorry love.}  But, it doesn't do any good when all my inspiration is boxed up.  I need part ways with the hoarding. 

I'm taking time to pull out my favorite pages and find inspiration and my 'style'.  After I've gathered what I think I need or have taken my notes, I will free my magazines from the bondage of boxes - aka Hello recycling bin!

This is pretty much what I'm looking for in the magazines.  I need to have some rules, otherwise my searches may become futile. 

AND, I'm super excited about some new magazines I've picked up.

There's no rhyme or reason to what I picked out.  I followed my heart.  Generally, if the majority of pages catch my attention, the magazine comes home with me.  I do like subscriptions, but I think it's nice to break out of the norm. 

Now if you'll excuse me, I have green tea and inspiration waiting!  Woo hoo!


  1. I went through and cut out all of the things that I loved from my magazines and now I've started making a scrap book from the clippings - lots of fun :)

  2. I'm going to do the very same thing to figure out my style and see what inspires me.
    Maybe our husbands could start a support group for men who are being crowded out by magazines....

  3. I'm a complete magazine addict, and I definitely do the clip-and-keep thing to cut down on the clutter. I only allow myself to hold onto magazines for 2 months, then they get snipped. It's the only reason I'm not buried under a mountain of wedding magazines as we speak.
