I have decided to crown myself the Magazine Queen. When the spirit strikes, I will critique magazine issues. Last night I picked up the Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Ideas. Maybe because there's a new baby in the family I'm really looking forward to the holidays and this issue really appeals to me. It concentrates its efforts on holiday decor (decking the halls, table settings, gift wrap) I like it. I think it would do the trick to kick start the Christmas spirit. I usually sit down with a cup of tea to page through a new magazine, and I would rate this issue three-quarters cup full.
