Simple Recipe Book :: Fill in your own

Just a quick little tutorial to show you how I have made the best thing ever since sliced bread! Ok, well, sliced bread is much yummier, but this is a close second, not that you can eat this.... or that you would want to...

First, you want to start with a blank spiral bound pack of index cards. Then get yourself some cute font stamps, great ink, super cute paper and matching ribbon.

Measure (or in my case, trace) the pad onto the cute paper and cut out. Do this for both side of the pad.

Glue those down and then stamp "recipes" however you would like it appear on your pad.

Once both sides are glued on tie some matching ribbon on the spirals for a little pizazz. Hey, every great item needs it accessories. And a ribbon accessory is a must!

Now that you have successfully completed decorating your "recipes" book, it needs to be filled. I have a very special method for filling this beauty. It will make your cooking, your week, your month and yes, your entire life, so much more enjoyable! You will actually WANT to cook every night, and you will be able to! How?

Here is my version of a tutorial from Jeanne Winters. These are so super easy to make and so much fun.

I made these for the ladies in my bible study. I will be taking them in tonight, hope they like 'em.

Please feel free to email me if you need further instruction.

A quick shot on our zoo trip. We were all so tired by the end of the day, but still managed a smile or two...

Highlighted Teepee

What I love best about my life.

Seeing the fun and joy in everyday items.

While working on prep for the next days lessons my daughter saw joy in my everyday item.

"Look Mama, it's a tent! Like the Indians live in."

She proceeded to run to the toy room and grab this unsuspecting Lego man. He now has a new home.

And I have to find more highlighters.
