Day 2, 6 months later

Yes, I am still here...just not into daily reports. I will try to do it more than twice a year, however. My recipe scrapbook is still a work in progress. It looks like it will not be ready for Christmas this year. I have collected several more stories from family members that need to be written up for little sidebars on some of the pages. I also plan to include photos of finished foods, family members making or eating various items, etc. I have already scanned in copies of recipe cards in our parents handwriting and terrible typing over the past 60 years. Its a fun project and since its a work in progress, I am still open to ideas for presentation of the pages.

So if you happen to come across this page and have some ideas, please feel free to share!

BTW, I added a bunch of recipe related scrapbook papers and stickers, etc. to my wish list for Christmas. Now, you can add stuff from any store on your Amazon wish list! Very cool.

Scrapbooking with Recipes

Hi Everybody, Welcome to Day 1 of my blog. While I expect I will be covering lots of topics, today I want to focus on one of my huge projects.

I am writing a cookbook of family favorites of my extended family, and I want to include stories, pictures, etc. in a digital or hybrid scrapbook that all family members can share. I have the recipes in a consistent format on the computer. (There are over 200 recipes.) Now I have to start putting the stories and pictures along with graphics, etc. onto the pages.

I would be thrilled if you would share your ideas and sample pages of scrapbooking you have done with family recipes. I will post some them on this site if you would like to share them with the other paper people.

In the meantime, here are a couple of recipes that I made for my Scrapbooking Crop that were well received:
