If anyone knows me well, they know I love binders. It makes everything so much more organized and neat. For my weddings, I have each wedding filed nicely in a binder with tabs. I also have a recipe binder with tabs. It makes things easy to find... at least for me. Sometimes my filing isnt always current.
Anyway, I went to a garage sale last month and purchased 12 or 13 used Family Fun magazines. Usually I wouldnt by used magazines just because they have other peoples germs on them. (I dont really like germs) But I think it was ok, one because I sort of knew them from around town, and two because they were ideas for kids to do. So, I purchased all of them for $1.00! Thats a steal in my book.
Off I went to my home and started flipping through them. They were full of millions of ideas!!
Side note - I gut ALL my magazines. I get 3 or 4 subscriptions to different magazines and once I read them, I gut them to keep the good ideas and recycle the rest. So I guted all of those magazines.
It went from this
Once I was done gutting all of them, I decided to make a craft / idea binder to file all the pages into sheet protectors. This will keep them nice and safe for a good long while. I can keep coming back to the ideas and keep adding to them as I see something of interest.
I glued a little strip of my favorite ribbon to the end of it.
It turned out super cute.
Making this binder, made me realize how much I needed to redo my recipe binder. It was way over stuff and all the new recipes I wanted to keep were just thrown in the front pocket.
Come back tomorrow to see my recipe binder. Plus I'll share a new recipe that jon and I tried over the weekend!
