I have had An Idea.
It remains to be seen whether or not it is A Good Idea.
I think it is, but then I think most of my ideas are AWESOME (!) so I will leave it to you lovely people to give me some feedback on The Idea.
During My Make Do and Mend Year, I may have mentioned on several occasions that the thing I missed most whilst Buying Nothing New, was magazines. Lovely crafty magazines, full of projects, and inspiration, and aspirational homes and lives, and the promise of half an hour sat with a cup of tea, in peace, reading said magazine.
Since the year has ended, I have indulged myself a few times, and whilst I still love them, and find them strangely addictive, I find that I never really do get that half hour with a cup of tea to sit in peace and flick through it, and very rarely ever get around to making any of the lovely things.
So, this week, whilst queueing in the Post Office and being *forced* to walk out past the Craft magazine section… I had The Idea.
I must have about a bazillion (at the last count) lovely, inspirational, aspirational projects pinned on Pinterest, so why not amalgamate them into my very own personalised magazine-ish blog post, full of Upcycling, and Mending, and Making Do, to share with you.
This is win-win for me-I save myself at least a fiver a month on magazines, and I get to spend time browsing Pinterest without feeling like quite such a time waster!
I could do it
whenever I remember to do it monthly, and theme it a bit, so try and get some Valentine’s makes in pretty soon-ish etc.
What do you reckon?
Is it A Good Idea, or A Bad Idea? Or maybe A Not Even Interesting Enough To Have An Opinion On Idea?
Let me know!
PS. Here’s a little taster of some of things I might just share with you….
