Update: Texture was purchased by Apple and no longer exists. I still find magazines a great source of inspiration and trends.


I’ve mentioned before that I keep a healthy number of subscriptions to various crafting and home related magazines, as well as business publications. As a small business owner, flipping through magazines is an easy way to not only get new product ideas, but also to see what what the current trends are. Recently, my magazine subscriptions started coming up for renewal. In an effort to reduce paper in our house, I started looking into magazines with digital availability. In comes Texture – an app offering a flat fee subscription for hundreds of magazines!

Here’s just a few of the magazines that I’ve been reading using Texture:

  • Better Homes and Gardens
  • Do It Yourself
  • HGTV Magazine
  • Wood
  • Entrepreneur
  • Inc
  • Forbes
  • and more!

Did I mention with Texture, you have access to lots of back issues and enhanced content, too? And, there’s nothing better than reading along on my phone or iPad while sitting in the car rider line in the afternoons!

Want to try out Texture? They offer two different plans: Basic for $9.99 a month and Premium for $14.99 month. First, grab your free 14 day trial at this link.

If you try out Texture, let me know in the comments if you love it! One more thing – I recently discovered wood stain in a spray paint can! Who knew?! I can’t wait to try it out. See it in the picture below.
