Show and tell Monday with Make Mine Pink


Over a period of many years I have cut out and collected pictures/articles from magazines, keeping them in pretty journals for a rainy day or when needing some inspiration.
Love to look at the designs and colours, how what is in fashion rotates in a circle, frequently ending up where it started. Had a wonderful day on Sunday relaxing and browsing through 4 of my packed to the brim journals, remembering the years past and what I was doing at the time.

Having tidied my sewing room, so the sofa is now visible, I have a special place to sit and dream and get some inspiration for a week of stitching ahead.


  1. What a fun and inspiring day you must of had. I have saved magizines forever too. But, I need to take time to cut out the pictures I want to save and throw the rest of the book away. LOL
    I hope you got really inspired by browsing the past. Have a wonderful week as well. Kath'

  2. Hi Caroline, I do the same thing. I adore looking through magazines and saving the extra special pictures. I hope you get a chance to enjoy your journals this week. Relax and enjoy. (()) gail

    I absolutely love your journals, how fun to watch the trends change over time.

    I need a comfy chair in my workspace too! :)

  4. Hi Caroline! What a wonderful idea. A great way to see all the things you loved over the years.
    Have a good day!

  6. Hi Caroline,
    I have always wanted to make inspiration journals, but I have a hard time throwing the rest of the magazine away! lol Thank you for sharing!
