on sunday afternoon, with my laundry being sort of caught up and my house being clean… enough…i took a few minutes to enjoy a cup of tea and my new southern living magazine. and i mean the physical periodical that comes in the mail – not the digital, kindle version.
at any rate, while i sat there at my kitchen table with a cup of tea, i was once again reminded of how much i love magazines. and so today i thought i might share with you ten, extremely important, reasons why i do.
i mean, let’s face it…once a month i get something beautiful in addition to the junk mail and bills.
there is a tactile, auditory component to a magazine that i find incredibly gratifying and one that cannot be duplicated by a digital reader.
need i say more?
chicken thighs with peanut sauce…yes please.
i can totally see these collages translating to my project life album (that 6×12 page protector is a challenge for me!).
look for those cool text boxes and graphics elements coming soon to a blog post near you!
no i’m not referring to a design element or photographic compositional tool…what i love most about a magazine is 15 uninterrupted minutes of quiet time. of rest. of blank space for dreaming and inspiration.
i highly recommend it.
