Cut and paste

February 22, 2010


I have a LOT of magazines.  I have every single issue of Vogue for at least the past three years, as well as several Elles, Vanity Fairs, Harper’s Bazaars, Shapes, and many many more.

Sometimes, all you need is to take a scissor to the pages of beauty.  Your recreation, revolution, reinvention may be freakier and more beautiful.

I definitely win the freaky prize

Sometimes words are too obvious and too constricting.  A new medium allows fresh expression.

Sometimes cats insist on getting in the middle of everything.  Don’t fight it, you will lose.

Sometimes, all you need is your best friend…

…and a hell of a lot of shoes.

    That is crazy fierce! And a good idea- I have no clue what to do with my zillions of old issues of Vogue. Sometimes, too, I donate them to the gym, since so many other generous souls have donated THEIR magazines to entertain ME on the elliptical.

    This is so awesome! I love magazines too but just don’t have time to read them anymore. Vogue and Elle are awesome. Am I the only one who thinks Lucky is just terrible now?? It used to be one of my favorites too!!
