when i put my bedroom back together after it was re-painted, i decided NOT to return this massive (and heavy!) stack of OPRAH magazines.

i don't have the VERY FIRST issue, but i do have ISSUE 2 and all the others that followed for the next 5 years.

after that, it just became too hard to keep up with the plethora of fantastic content that each issue contained.

i really don't want to throw them out, so have decided to take off each cover, SCOUR each and every one of them, and put together my favourite bits in a SMASH BOOK.

a reasonably length project i know, but one i'm going to love.

What a fun idea! I have TWO of those books but haven't done anything with them yet. Weird, I know. I just am not a scrapbooker, so it's intimidating, lol!!!! I don't wanna mess 'em up!

I think that is an awesome idea and definately one that can be picked up and put down over time. I had a great collection of Oprah mags in Ireland. When S. was little she would jump into bed on a Sat. morning and grab the magazine besdie my bed. She would thumb thrugh it and shout "Oprah" every time she saw her photo! Couldn't justify them taking up space in the container when we came home so I "donated" them to a friend. I wasn't a scrapper then so couldn't have thought of an idea as clever as this. Will be such a fun project!
