Food & Family Journal Ready To Mail
Things get pretty messy when I am creating. There are so many options to lay out before settling on the final design. As often happens, I have an idea in my head and in the end, the finished product is totally different.
My wrist was giving me trouble last week, so a whole lot of cutting was out. Instead I doodled my way to completion for the main course spread. I rather like how it turned out.
For the dessert spread the recipe just had to be apple crisp. It is a recipe my mom's mom used to make and my mom made it every fall too. It was one of the first things I made regularly in high school with Best School Chum, Denise. Her specialty was anything with chocolate and this was mine. I recall we made up a batch and tried to eat it all in one sitting. We only got as far as two bowls each. It is simply too filling! It was delish trying!
I came across some old newspaper pages in an old scrapbook I had and there were all these great grocery ads so I decorated the inside of the back cover with some.
I also added more to the back cover as well. I didn't want to totally cover up the lovely ragged leather, so I left part of it alone. Now to find a suitable box for it and ship it off to the next person in line. The swap doesn't actually begin until mid April so I have some time to work on some other ideas I have for this swap before I get my first book to work in. Fun!!
