My collection of inspirational scrap books have grown a little more over the last month or so...I'm finally coming to an end of the old magazines I had squirrelled away - I must say it does feel good to clear space at home and put the magazines left after my scissors have been at them, into the recycling bin and wave goodbye.
Most evenings, whilst sat cosy on the sofa, I've been snipping and gluing my favourite images into the scrap books...
The best bit is leafing through them once the are full...
I have one especially for garden inspiration too.
I'm trying to be very good this year and not buy many magazine...I usually have a quick flick through at the newsagents before I buy...Something really has to catch my eye these days...I do find it frustrating when I see homes that have been featured in numerous other magazines before...
I think I'm lucky that my local newsagents stocks this US publication, which generally means the homes it features are new to me...so for now the Romantic Country magazines that I have bought so far have remained in one piece and have not been chopped for my scrap books. There are usually at least four homes featured in each, as well as some craft projects, so I feel they offer good value for money.
|I love collecting beautiful images and have recently been looking into making mood boards on Pinterest, but am slightly nervous about copyright issues, as you do hear stories...Or am I worrying too much?|
I would like to thank those who gave me advice about Facebook on my previous post...Its a minefield out there!
Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the beauty all around!
