NEW ideas I found in OLD magazines.

I try to tell myself that I'm not a procrastinator although, deep down, I know that I am.

Case in point:

I decided I needed to clear off my coffee table so that I could dust properly. First thing's first...I need to throw away some of my magazines. I took it upon myself this morning to go back and read through my magazines and tear out the pages that interest me. Out of 20 magazines, I got through two of them. Then I went on Google to see if I could find these pages online so I could "pin" it to THAT WEBSITE and have a "soft copy" of it. Some of these magazines were SO old that I couldn't find it anywhere on line. That meant I had to use my neglected scanner. It took me about 30 minutes to finally figure out how to work the contraption. After I scanned the articles, now I had to figure a place to post them. The only logical place would be my very own blog so that I could "pin" them for all the other procrastinators out there.

Love the white cabinets, light blue walls and red accents! Then add the "smart upgrade" as shown below.
