I decided tonight that I need to get rid of my magazines. They are taking up some precious space and I don't look at them as much as I used to. With magazine resources online, Flickr and amazing blogs to read for inspiration, I don't feel the need to save most of my magazines anymore.
Still parting is tough.
So, I tore out my favorite pictures from two of my favorite issues of Better Homes and Gardens and scanned them. I created a set of inspirational pictures on Flickr.
I hadn't read these two magazines in years, but I had saved them because I consulted them heavily when we first moved into the apartment. As I flipped through, I found that some of my tastes have changed. And, to my surprise, I had achieved the feel of the pages I really admired.
Here is one of the inspiration pages that I cut out tonight.
And here are some pillows I made after we moved here.
