i love collecting ideas. i have binders full of ideas. garden ideas. craft and decorating ideas. christmas and recipe ideas. my ironing board makes a perfect place to organize. because i do iron every week these piles can only sit for so long.
i can go through magazines (many snagged from the library)in the evenings, select the pages i want to keep and process the whole batch on a free afternoon.
recently i went through old martha stewarts where among other good things
i found a timely use for this.
i get to review the ideas i've already amassed as selected pages are trimmed, 3-hole-punched and added to my binders. a good way to kill an afternoon.
