What do you do with all your old, but can't bear to be parted from, magazines?
A pile in the living room. The newest on the table. A stack beside the bed. Another pile on the other side of the bed. Some more in an old wooden basket-thingy. Two shelves, each stacked with six piles in the family room. Another stash hidden in the back of the cupboard.... Sound familiar? I can't be the only one with such a fetish! Every now and then I go through them all, vowing to cull them somewhat. Instead I can be guaranteed to find one that I swear I've not even read, and what a thrill that is. I get lost in the pages, forget what I was meant to be doing, and certainly can't contemplate recycling any at this moment. Thanks anyway. And, now that I have a blog, well, can't my magazine collection be reasonably classified as research material? The piles pile up - again.
Here's one idea that I like. An instant art installation, using pages torn from your favourite magazines. Make your own collage using images you find inspirational or beautiful. A harmonious and rather fun way to spend an afternoon.
You just have to get your head around ripping up your precious collection!
