Cosmo, Glamour, Southern Living. . .you know!

My husband has come to his wits’ end. He just might divorce me. Not because of my incessant, wake-up-the-neighbors-two-doors-down snoring. Not because of my love for Judge Judy, Jeopardy! and Secret Life of the American Teenager.

But. It’s due to my insane need to accumulate magazine subscriptions and hand-me-down issues of my mama’s. Just last week, I received ten (10!!!!) magazines or catalogs. As part of my new year’s probablyisn’tgoingtohappenbutlet’sbepositiveanyway resolution, I vowed that I would keep my magazines in check and recycle them or pass them on to someone else before they overtook our living room.

Well, here is my first effort and it only took me a month and a half to get it done. I found this old magazine holder, not unlike the picture, laying around not in use. (Curious, huh?)

Old Magazine

I decided with my newfound love for Mod Podge-ing things, I must make it BEAUTIFUL! ATTRACTIVE! WONDERFUL!

In my crazy head, slap a little paper and Elmer’s glue on it and I can’t wait to use it. So TA-DA! Here is my spiffy “new” magazine holder-in use and everything!

Oh,honey! I hear ya'. I have every back issue of Victoria, Southern Lady and Romantic Homes. It's terrible. They fill up boxes and boxes. Don't worry. I've been married for 28 years and my husband hasn't left yet. And yes, I saw logs to beat the band, too.
