Welcome to my blog. My blog is mainly for the sharing of the many projects I make either for swaps, for gifts or just because I was inspired by something I saw on the internet and wanted to give it a try as well. I hope you enjoy what you see and if you have any questions be sure to send me a comment.

Recipe Book

This past Christmas I made my daughters, daughter-in-laws and like-a-daughter family cookbooks. I had them all give me favorite family recipes that they make.  I created 4x6 pages in a scrapbook program.  Once I created a background design I then typed in the recipes. I e-mailed and had them printed as photographs at Costco then inserted the recipes into a pre-made mini photo-album I purchased at JoAnn's.  I left the plastic covering the book comes with to keep the cover picture clean.  There is a section for each person's recipes starting with mine. The beginning of each section has a photo of them. I left blank pages between the sections to add more recipes. If the recipes took up more than one page I created 2 pages and put them in facing pages. Everyone including spouses love them. As a gift.. in the last pocket of the book I put a note "In case you don't feel like cooking..." And attached a gift card to their favorite restaurant.
