Cutest Quiet Book Ever!

Pin It

I have so many things that I would like to make some day ...
This definitely is one of them, but I wonder if I'd ever find the time and patience to finish it. 
Check out this link to see the other pages of this awesome baby book!

Recipe Organizer

Pin It

Don't know if anybody recognizes this kind of 'pile' in their kitchen. 
(I hope so, please tell me I am not the only one!)
Anyway, that is how my recipes have been 'organized' for years!
When I needed something, I would just dig through the papers till I found it.

But just recently, I couldn't stand this sight any longer.

So I decided to finally tackle it. 
I just took an old binder, made a simple cover from scrapbook paper, and put it in the transparent sleeves on the cover. Next, I put all my recipes in page protectors. The recipes that were smaller than a standard 8.5 by 11 I just glued on some white printer paper. Nothing complicated, but it looks SO much better!

Just wonder why this took me years :)

Make your own rose stamp

Pin It

I was amazed to see how Maureen from Maureen Cracknell Handmade had her children use celery (yes, celery!) to stamp pretty roses. I have seen people use potatoes for stamping before, but never this! And apparently you can also use bunches of leafy lettuce. So clever!

This is one of the pictures from her blog:
