Whether to cut up whether to keep. Such is the magazine lover's dilemma. Cutting out almost always wins out in this house, with our house being on the small side. So every few months I cut out my favourite pictures and recipes and donate or toss the rest. My husband dreads this little ritual, as he finds magazines strewn all over the lounge room floor for days.
But it's something I've done since I was a child, this scrapbook thing, starting out with Mum's English family-style magazines or Family Circle. It's something I still enjoy doing. I guess I haven't really changed over the years.
I purchase those big scrapbooks that are made for kids and cover them with with Frankie paper - these were free wrapping papers from a few years ago and a calender.
So many images that were just too good to throw out. The above house was actually inspiration for the exterior of our house.
What do you do with your old magazines? Do you like keeping them in pristine condition, valuing them as you would a book, or do you hack at them?
