real simple magazine, hear my plea...

Dear Real Simple magazine,

For Christmas, I asked for a subscription to my favorite magazine in the world. Your magazine. I love it. Every month, my mind is filled with the inspiring images that you select to educate me on the ways of simplicity. Every month I slowly flip through the beautiful pages, ink pen in hand, ready to makes notes in the margins-- reminders to myself that I need to take your advice or exclamations of this being my "dream kitchen" or that being the way I want my bookshelves to look...

When I select colors and fonts for my little postcards and newsletters, you are the inspiration for my designs. When dreaming up decor for my Girls Retreat, I so often referred to you. One day, when I am a bride, you will be my wedding guidebook. When I finally begin cooking, I will use your recipes. One day I will have a home of my own, and the things I have learned from you will fill the rooms of my house.

Can you tell that you inspire me? Here's the thing, Real Simple- I just can't do it myself yet. I still have so much to learn. And now I find myself in a small, cluttered, inefficiently organized office that needs to be painted. Help!! Are you out there? Can you tell me how to fix this on a tight budget? I need your wisdom to best utilize this space! Please?

Your dedicated subscriber,
Jenna
