I'm kinda obsessive complusive about magazines. I can't get enough of them. Once I have them I devour them until the next issue comes out, then I save it... for all eternity. I did a little experiment for January. I knew I was a bit of a magazine fanatic, but is it really this bad? I'm even a little embarassed, I bought 9, count 'em NINE magazines in the month of January alone. The ironic thing is I didn't buy a single beading magazine. Here they are: Romantic Homes, Romantic Country, Creating Keepsakes, Country Living x's 2, Home Companion, Blueprint, Somerset Life, & Somerset Studio.
I'm on to February's magazine stash. I got Artful Blogging today from a cute little stamp store in New Castle, DE. The little one & I took a field trip since his older brother was staying later at school today for a special lunch. We went to White Swan Rubber Stamps & found some fun stuff for me. In addition to Artful Blogging, I got a new cube rubber stamp, probably expected from a rubber stamp store & a book on soldering projects. I had to drive 50 miles to get my Artful Blogging. I knew it was hitting the newsstands today, but no one in Dover carried the first issue. I went to the craft stores here & even a Barnes & Noble in MD. It was so funny asking for it. No one knew what blogging was. Artful Logging? Someone even looked at me with my youngest in tow asking if I said Artful Flogging. I'm glad I have the new one. So well worth the drive :) I'm planning to go back to New Castle. The downtown area is beautiful. It was raining today, so I didn't bring my camera. Yes, I broke blogging rule #1. The downtown dead ends into a park on the bay.
I'm preparing my next post for my 100th giveaway. Stay tuned!!
There have been quite a few blog friends asking how the open house went in FL. First off thanks :) It's great to have blog friends that care. There weren't a lot of people that could make it but the ones that did bought. I will defintely do it again. Like I said - my mom has big plans for the holiday open house. It was fun with family - friends - & munchies. I can't use my comma right now because the little one popped the key off - AGAIN. I'm waiting for the insurance company to drop us. Thank goodness this time it's only 2 keys & I have the spare key board from the last incident.
