Too Many Subscriptions

Spent a good portion of the day going through old magazines and trying to decide which ones to keep and which to get rid of. Somehow I seem to have collected more magazines than Barnes & Noble have on their magazine racks! I think it is one of those things that you have to stay on top of otherwise it can get way out of hand, but unfortunately I am not very good at doing that. I have the same problem with catalogs too. I did manage to part with a pretty good sized stack to take out to the recycling bin, after I tore out any decorating ideas, recipes, travel ideas, how-to articles, gardening tips, colors that inspire me, etc. etc. Okay, now I have created another task for myself - to find a way to organize the torn out pages! Alas, that will have to wait for another day.

Took a break from my magazine sorting project to go to Target to get cat food for our two kitties. Why is it everytime I go in that store to buy just ONE item, I come out with at least FOUR bags of merchandise? Anyway, I found these in the Dollar Spot:

They are actually recipe box dividers, but the bright colors made me think they would make a fun little mini scrapbook. Then for some reason I ended up in the card and stationary aisle and found these monogram note cards that I couldn't resist:


They come with clear epoxy circles to stick on top of the monogram to create a 3-D embellisment look. Cool!

I was at Target and saw those too! Check out the party section next time where the napkins are, they had monogramed ones in funky patterns, I'm thinking I'll make some coasters. Very cool stuff!
