Like many of you, I've always loved magazines. When I think back about all the magazines I've read it's funny how they represent a kind of timeline for my life. I have a very clear memory of buying my first issue of Seventeen, feeling somewhat timid since I was only fifteen. This was when Seventeen was the big oversize issues - like Vogue used to be too. When the babies started coming along, I think I bought every issue of Parents, Parenting, and Child for about seven years. I started scrapbooking right after my daughter was born (15 years ago) so Memory Makers was a wonderful resource. Of course I remember when Living premiered and being so impressed with the quality of the pictures and beautiful layouts - it really stood out from the other magazines in it's niche. I try not to hold onto as many magazines as I used to, so every now and then I go through my piles and pull out pages that I like and set them aside to create new collages in my inspiration book. It's a great way to recycle and enjoy your magazines all over again.
This is not a comprehensive list by any means but here it is:
