The Joy of Magazines

I just love magazines. Nothing makes me happier then to have a big stack of magazines to go through before I recyle them. Right now I have a large stack and am getting through them a few each night. I love to pull articles out to send to people to let them know I’m thinking about them ( found a great article to send to my sister about the “Hon Fest” in Baltimore where every June a festival occurs to pay homage to all those “Ballmore” gals who call everyone “Hon”.). Other article treasures I found tonight include a great idea for Brown Bag Lunches to share with my friend Susan that she can use for the an upcoming Vintage Trailor Tour on Tybee Island. Then, an article on a local SCAD graduate and Savannah artist, and best of all, some inspirations collected by writer Mary Engelbreit. They’ve inspired me and I want to share!

“Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on Fire.”
Anonymous

“Some of us have great runways already built for us. If you have one, take off! But if you don’t have one, realize it is your responsibility to grab a shovel and build one for yourself and those who will follow after you.”
Amelia Earhart, American aviator

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; There is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.”
Mary Engelbreit.
