When I went to visit my friend in Boston in July, her mom let me go through her giant stash of old craft magazines that she had bought at a yard sale. I loved looking through all of the old issues. She let me pick out a few and take them home with me. I mostly went for the 60s issues, but the 70s ones are pretty entertaining, too. The notes are from the original owner.
Some of the projects are actually kind of cute, but most of them are not. I rather enjoy going through them and laughing at the ugly projects, but I thought you might find the attractive ones more interesting and less frightening. Some of the projects were kind of terrifying like weird clown dolls.
Mostly I like looking at the ads. Some of them are very well done and some are so dated that they’re a little horrifying like the ads for diet plans. And since I’m very juvenile at heart, I’m always amused by the number of ads for adult diapers in these things. Half of the small ads in the back are for them!
