What do ReadyMade magazine, Anthropologie, and BasicGrey have in common? THIS! So, if you're in the area of one of these fabulous cities, you should go and tell us how fabulous it was.
Brett and I have subscribed to ReadyMade for about three years because they are fabulous. It is D.I.Y., Green living, design trend, music scene, idea inspiring heaven for 20-30 somethings, although I'm sure their audience includes all ages. I usually read through the whole thing twice and then revisit it a week or two later when something sneaks into the creative part of my brain.
There is a challenge section at the very end titled, 'MacGyver', in honor of the man we all know could craft the finest of bombs with a safety pin and bird poop (huh?). It features how one lucky winner has recycled an everyday item that has seen better days. (Ex: the last challenge was how to reuse a broken umbrella). I can NEVER think of anything to make out of the objects they showcase, so I just admire the ingenuity of others.
However, as I was rocking Sebastian to sleep tonight, I had three ideas in a row of what I could do with this issue's item. Three in a row! Now, there's no bean-spilling happenin' over here because the winner receives a subscription and t-shirt and we all know you can't have enough t-shirts. If you're really interested you'll just have to snag a copy or see if you can find that section on the website and see what you come up with yourself. If you beat me, you'll have to let me borrow your t-shirt sometime. And the new word I just made up for this post...its inspired by the stomach bug I've had all week. I dare you to use it in a sentence on your blog.
P.S. Our February kit is up for sale as of Feb. 1st around midnite.
