I have known about this for several days, but Simple Scrapbooks is ceasing publication. I just didn't know how I felt about it. I liked "Simple" the best of the remaining scrapping magazine subscriptions I had. The pages published there most closely reflected my personal style, and I would refer to the magazine for starting points more than anywhere else.
I know that this is just an indicator of the deteriorating economy. I get enough of the bad economy in my foreclosure counseling at work. I don't need bad things to happen with my hobby. That is silly of me of course, scrapping is a hobby of disposable income and when things get bad, people will stop buying stuff. I read where paper companies are cutting back and some have closed. I don't know where any of this will end.
