I am so excited about my new discovery!
Today I stumbled upon DownMagaz.com. For $10 a month you can
read almost any magazine you want - all from the convenience of your computer.
It is the best thing ever. I'd like to share with you some of my favorite finds.
I have always adored Home & Antiques Mag.
Infact, I have the print issue sitting right next to me.
This month's publication is all about springing up your space.
The colors are fresh & fabulous. Ofcoarse, this style of decorating isn't for everyone
(defintely not me), however, how wonderful would it be to
spend a day in a little slice of sunshine?
Okay, this has to be my favorite.. I just discovered Canada's Style at Home magazine.
As far as I know, this little treasure is not available in US bookstores. However, you can read it for free at Zinio, (a free, digital magazine site). This publication has every interior you could imagine. From french country to chic eclectic - Style at Home seems to meet every style preference.
Fun Tip of the Week: Keep a Skrapbook
( a mix between a sketchbook & a scrapbook)
As we all know, blogging is an easy, enjoyable, and artful way
of cataloging inspirational material. But there are other creative alternatives that
can be just as entertaining - if not more. If you don't already, start keeping
a personal skrapbook to document tangible finds that interest you.
Keeping a blog is cool, but keeping a skrapbook is way cooler.
3 Steps for Getting Started:
1. Start collecting material for your inspirational inventory.
Ex: images, fabric swatches, buttons, jewelry, tissue paper,
scrapbook accents, sequins, foil, trim, letters,
newspaper, artwork, cards, etc.
2. Be disciplined
Set aside atleast 20 minutes a day to collage your
inspirations. In the begining it might take some effort to sit down
and scrap. Keep at it though - soon it will become a habit.
3. Don't be afraid of failure
There is no such thing as messing up. Don't worry so much about
"how it looks," worry more about incorporating your ideas. This will become
something you'll cherish all your life. Promise.
A skrapbook is like a tangible slice of your soul.
