  • Hello, thanks for stopping by. I'm a graphic designer by trade and am trying to build a creative life that will financially support me. My passions include fabrics, paper and print - and I design and hand make a range of accessories, fabrics and paper products. I live on the coast south of Melbourne, Australia with my husband. Almost daily walks on the beach keep me inspired to create.

Yep, love mags too! My can't live withouts are Inside Out (subscribe), Frankie (subscribe), Adorn, Craft, Real Living, Real Simple, Ready Made, Blueprint, and Notebook. I trade my Real Simple with a friend for her Martha Stewart Living every month, and she also gives me She. I also buy other odds and sods when the spirit moves me, like Creative Knitting, Lula, Cloth Paper Scissors, Knit 1 and Bust.

Pllllllllllllllllllllease tell me where i can find Marie Claire Idees locally????

I think I need to say that this two-week period was the time of the month when most of the mags come out, and that my stack for the other two weeks in not as big, usually. If I get any strife from Mr greenolive about this problem I have, I'm gonna make him read all your comments!

Hi! I just found you via Summer Pickles...and that mag hag habit seems to be the domain of crafters everywhere. I collect them, too like there's no tomorrow. Then when I tire of some, my mum takes it away and it sits in her collection for eons, in case I wanna look at them again.

Glad to know I'm not the only one with this addiction!!

That was a great post as I could identify with it. "My name is Joni and I'm a magazineaholic". Although, I've noticed my mag. purchasing being cut down as my book reading has increased... all due to blogs I read and inspire me to read a certain book. And I'm even getting books from the library which I never did before. I read several a week and I was spending so much on hardbacks plus the magazines.

But, aren't magazines grand!!!

You've made me feel so much better! I wouldn't beat myself up about my magazine habit quite so much if I didn't have a bizarre urge to hang on to every blessed one! I'm drowning.

I'm impressed as well -- I never knew that my sister would have competition in the magazine-acquisition department. I get a bit anxious if I have too many magazines around, but I love to pick them up and read them at the book store.

Mostly however, I'm intrigued by the idea of Australian versions of magazines I'm used to reading.

WHOAH! And I thought I was bad.

I'm terribly impressed.

You have EVERYTHING!

I would so dig drinking tea at your house.

Wow, if i had unlimited funds to spend on magazines (how i *love* them) i would have a collection to rival yours! ;0) I tend to pick up all the design/craft/food mags.
Where do you get your Blueprint from? I have been dying to get my hands on a copy to check out but none of the newsagents up here stock it. Drat.

lusummers

ha! my pile of mags isn't quite that big, but nearly :) i'll toss in my copy of elle deco & embroidery magazine too. if i'm feeling rich i also buy crafts & selvedge. but only if i'm feeling rich, cos you need a mortgage for both. further to your 'aren't you a taurus too' question, yes! (weird!) libra and taurus are a very good pairing; opposites attract. my husband is completely a libra, i call him 'mr. balanced' ;)

apparently Australia sells the most amount of magazines per head than any other country. I love them too, I never throw out any interior design mags. My biggest problem at the moment is the amount of cooking/recipe mags that I have in the bottom of my pantry. My aim is to go through, rip out all the recipes that I like and compile them into one,nice simple book....ONE DAY.
