Only lately I've started to order some magazines again. Now I order 'Tee Itse' a DIY magazine and 'Ihana' crafting magazine. Also I order a varying interior design magazine, now it's been 'Avotakka'. I haven't found any real good interior design magazines, so far I've been disappointed with them all. I think they mostly sell stuff and show pictures of homes styled so over the top that it's clear no one would live like that. What I especially hate is that sometimes you see the same object on two different areas on the home. I know they are just trying to get the right feel for the pictures but I hate catching them on staging.
Anyway, now that I've squalled enough, I admit that I do like some of the images in the design magazines. And inspired by the Get your home ready for the holidays, day five I started going through the magazines. I have a system that is a total rip off from Chez Larsson and I love it. It's worked so great in last few years and I often flip through the images in the folder and rip out things I no longer like.
I'm still unable to tear out pages from the Tee Itse (DIY) magazine, I think all of their hints and instructions might be usefull one day so I don't know what to keep and what not to keep. You wouldn't have any hints on this, would you? How could I determine which articles are important? Also I haven't torn out pages from the Ihana (crafting) magazine. But that is because it comes only four times a year and I have ordered it about one year so I've still had plenty of room to keep them. I am thinking of doing the same process for those as for the interior design magazines, but just to a different folder offcourse.
