Magazines, Books And More Books

I had such fun browsing through Barnes and Noble on Sunday. I couldn't hold out any longer and finally used the gift card I received for Christmas. It was hard to choose as there were many items that captured my heart and stirred my soul.

Artful Blogging is always a favorite. I love to find new blogs and this gives such great snippets to pique your curiosity. I'm only about the third blog in and am trying to savor the inspiration for as long as possible.






This is a "keep dreaming" magazine for sure. The studio spaces that some women have are simply to die for. A bit drastic of a measure, but you could definitely do some serious drooling. Not sure what I like more . . . all of the art supplies or all of the space to keep all of the art supplies.




I have a definite weakness for books . . .


There always seems to be one I do not have . . .




And sure enough, the following week there's another one I do not have . . .



Whether it's inspirational art or gorgeous spaces, I love them all.


So of course I had to buy another one!!

And now I've got lots of reading to do and I'm loving it!!

I'm afraid to buy the WWC book as I'll get all frustrated that I can't have a space like they have. It ain't ever gonna happen, chick! But I'll probably relent and buy it and another one perhaps, and then maybe another one of those books Stampington puts out! *Sigh*.....

I haven't seen Collage Lab, but I'm familiar with Bee Shay. I'll have to check this one out. Maybe we can trade books once in awhile -- I've bought way too many recently!

Hi Joyce, I just wanted to thank you for your comment on my blog--it really encourages me. And I must say that you are a girl after my own heart--I LOVE books, magazines--anything pretaining to art, techniques, mixed media--you know what I mean--I love Collage Lab--My favorite of the Stampington line publications would have to be Somerset Studio, but I love them all!

Book lovers of the world...unite. I too have a large stash...and my favorite, most relaxing thing is to head to B&N get some coffee, and browse...then buy. Oh, when will it end!
Love your blog.
