I am in the middle of culling, sorting and storing all my craft, DIY and decor magazines.
I don’t claim to have enough to fill a library – but I do have a few.

All I am doing is sorting them into magazine titles in chronological order. That’s all!

While chucking stuff out I came across one of those ‘extra’ publications
that often come with a magazine.

You know the sort –
a Christmas Cooking Guide
or
10 Fabulous Bathroom Makeovers
or
a ‘Special’ (hint: old) edition of an affiliate magazine.

Mine was this very pretty “Home Beautiful: Occasions”
that I think I received with an edition of Home Beautiful some time last year.
Spring maybe?

Too good to just throw out, but not informative enough to keep

When I had a quick flick through it, I realised that the ‘styling’ of the magazine was actually a great reference for taking photographs and styling shots for this little ol’ blog.

So after a bit or ripping and cutting + a few handwritten notes, I now have a Styling & Photography Folder to use as a reference. I can also add to it whenever I want.

Best of all, it’s a fantastic inspiration to make another Folder
or Vision Board or Inspiration Wall
in the future.

DIY Tute - Folder for Styling & photography

Now I have to get back to those piles of magazines on the floor.
No rest for the wicked!
