Artful Blogging

Monday was my last day off from school, and of course it was cold and rainy and gray. In fact, it was cold and rainy almost every single day. Good news is, the Falls Lake reservoir is now full once again. Yesterday after school, the sun peeped out again, and it will start to warm up today. Anyway, I was at the mall shopping for birthday gifts, and decided to peruse the magazine section at Barnes and Noble, the big chain bookstore. I was looking for a copy of the Quilting Arts book about Studios, since I am still working on my workspace make-over. They did not have a copy, but look what I found!

What a feast for the eyes and soul. They have published excerpts and photographs from art blogs on the Internet. All I can say is, "Wow!" I love looking at blogs, but there is nothing like curling up with your quilt and a cup of tea on the couch. Well, I can also say this: "I want to learn how to Photoshop!" The photographs are artfully staged, the banners are gorgeous, quotations abound. This magazine cost fifteen dollars, and will eventually cost me the price of Photoshop software! This is the second issue. I will be actively seeking a copy of the first. Don't we deserve beautiful eye candy?

That IS a delightful publication. I look at them every time I find one at the bookstore. Lots of ideas and inspiration in there.
