I am not a big magazine reader. I have gotten Good Housekeeping for the last few years, and it never is read. Ever. I don't know if the content just doesn't interest me anymore, or if I just think I don't have the time to do it.

I have started checking out Creating Keepsakes magazines from the library, and while I love the idea of having those back issues available, there is something ... I don't know ... not satisfying about being able to keep the magazine myself. I will look at a layout and want to rip it out of the magazine, but have to pull myself off of the idea when I see that bar code across the front of the magazine.

And knitting magazines ... don't even get me started. My library carries NONE, which totally bums me out.

So I started looking around, and found this site AND I found Creating Keepsakes and all of these knitting magazines.

So I think instead of the stand mixer (which I would LOVE to have), I think I am going to treat myself to some magazine subscriptions. Because I don't think I need something else to dust around on my counter. I just need magazines that I can move around my house.

I LOVE to read magazines, have several subscriptions, just don't have the time to read them. Our piles of hopefuls just keep moving from place to place also.

How about Family Fun?? It's incredibly cheap and has cool crafts and fun places to visit.

Kelly, we did receive that magazine a long time ago! I will definitely have to put that one on the list, too! Thanks for the suggestion!
