WOYWW 202 confessions of a magazine addict

Hi peeps.
Happy Wednesday.... time to blog hop around the world, see what it's all about here. WOYWW
Julia says keep it short, so I will (mostly as I have a horrible head cold).
Here's my desk this week
It would seem I am a bit addicted to craft magazines, time for a clear out.... I got as far as putting them into piles. oh well maybe tomorrow.
Here is a quck catchup from last week.
Remember the lovely MIni car fabric. I made a peg bag and 2 door stops with it for DD3's new house. forgot to take pictures.
This is what was left
Not much eh? not quite 2" like I said to Elizabeth....I am prone to exaggerating.
The next stage of my ATC journey .... I added a few haberdashery stamps.
more next week.
Well that's all, folks as this is written tuesday night I am off to bed.
Usual rules apply see you later
A big thanks to everyone who  comments I will get back to you.... eventually.
Feeling pretty rubbish actually


  1. Poor you, feeling so grotty :( nothing much you can do except keep warm, drink lots and rest.
    I love that mini fabric and you're w woman after my own heart,....I get maximum usage from cutting material carefully too!
    I loved that last quilts you made for fav so far!
    Hugs, LLJ 37 xxxx

  2. Sorry that you are not feeling well, take care. I like what you are doing with your ATC. Hope you are better by next week. Happy WOYWW.

    i overslept, so no 21 this week.

  4. hope your cold goes soon... I should probably clear out some magazines too.... have lots and lots! the atc is looking great, i haven't started yet... helen 12

  5. oh dear someone as bad as me for magazine buying and then it becomes time to sort them.

  6. Poor you, hope you're feeling better soon. I too am a magazine hoarder, can't bear to throw them out - even for recycling! I bet you spend ages looking through them again! Thanks for sharing and Happy Woyww Liz@73

  7. Just snuggle up in a blanket and sit going through your magazine piles. Hope you feel better soon.
    As for my mag pile, I set a date every 2 months to go through them all and tear out what inspires me, then I recycle them. (Though now I'm left with folders full if inspiration!)

  8. Ooh ooh oooh I need that mini fabric!! Happy Wednesday and get well soon. :o)

  12. Love that material, I bet they loved your pieces using it! The ATC is just adorable. The fun background and stamps used are perfect together. Have a Happy Week! Winnie#76

  13. Like you I have a magazine stash that is too big and needs pruning. Happy WOYWW. Thanks for sharing. Caro #120

  14. I love craft magazines too! And I even go through them often. Feel better fast:) Carole 106

  15. I have so many magazines, if I sell them as waste paper I could buy a car! LOL
    Hope you are feeling a lot better already.
    Happy WOYWW!

  16. Hope you are feeling a bit better today. I, too, have a huge collection of crafty magazines that are in a pile ready to sort! Take care Zo xx 71

  17. Thanks for the visit. Mazeltov is Congratulations in Hebrew. I have a fair number of Jewish clients as cards specific to their celebrations are not easy to find in stores and the ones you do are so few that peeps land up getting so many of the same. In this case it was for the birth of a baby boy. Hope you are feeling better.

  18. Hi Janet, It looks like you've been busy and that you are going to continue that way. I've got to get my act together after beeing ill and after al my travels. I don't have too long as soon I'll be on my travels again... to see Dolores then to Germany to see DD2 and co.
    hope your cold gets better soon... lots of love Jo x

  19. Happy WOYWW.

    I hope you are feeling better now! Nice ATC. I know that magazine problem, every now and then I spend two days going through old mags and giving them away, charity shop, my Mum (who probably recycles them) but I keep Craft Stamper and have 4 or 5 years worth now, or maybe 6!

  20. Hi Janet,

    Tee hee. I love magazines too! I used to have quite a collection and have really tried HARD not to get in the same predicament. What saves me is that there isn't a place in town to buy magazines, if you can believe that.

    If you'd like to swap ATCs I'm game -- I will need reminding though...... haaa I've enjoyed watching yours progress!

    Happy WOYWW

  21. Hope your on the mend. Sorting magazines can be a job, I started donating some of mine and haven't missed them!! Running late, but being gone the 2 days wore me out! Drove home in a snow storm, still very cold, strong winds, and snow on the ground here. Unreal.
    , have a great weekend

  22. Hi Janet, hope you're feeling better, love the ATC so far, haven;t started mine yet!

    Happy woyww
