Here's the Challenge!...

Let's get to work on those recipes! Also, known in some scrapping circles, as 'cookbooking'!

- 3x5/4x6/6x6/8x8/12x12
- single recipe cards
- artist trading cards (ATC's)
- full-page 12x12 layouts
- altered projects (recipe boxes, altered signs, plaques, mini albums, etc!)

At random, I will send 10-12 blank recipe cards to randomly-chosen participants. So, on that note, be sure to stay active & be on the lookout!

There are only 2 rules: #1 Be inspired & #2 Have fun!

Before I even attempt to begin this challenge...

I desperately need to organize, clean up (& eventually, slowly-but-gradually) need to purge/downsize my 'cookbook closet'!

Basically, when we moved in this summer, all I managed to do was unpack the boxes & stuff the books on the shelf any whichway.

On that note, it'll probably take me a good half an hour, but a half an hour much needed!

I'll try & take a before & after pic.

I never want to see the 'before' pic ever again. I miss using my books & am having seperation anxiety from my long-lost recipes!

I need to find & sort through my 'healthy' recipes. I'm going to try my best to stay away from sugar this year!

Disclaimer - However, with that said, I still love baking & have tons of sugary-delightful recipes to bake, share & pass along!

I'm not sure what this challenge is, exactly.

I've been pondering making some family recipe books for my 2 girls. this might fit with that.

What do we do exactly?

Recipe cards...recipe layouts...recipe books/albums/boxes...etc...

In the case of cards, you can write them out by hand...type them out...copy them...print them...even laminate them!

The project, project type & size is completely up to you!

Actually, anything food-inspired will work just fine.

Hope that helps!

It does. Ok. I'll give it a try. It'll be a while before I'm in the swing. I've been really REALLY sick the past couple of weeks.

No hurry, no rush, no worries.

We've got plently of time & plenty of recipes to go around for the rest of the year!

I probably won't get to this one, until I work on the cookbook closet I mentioned from up above!

I have some Valentine-themed recipes, so most likely I'll start with those!

I think I'm going to do my Hoppin John Soup from January 1. It's the first time I've ever fixed it, and I want to have it in a book to do again before I forget.

I think I'm going to maybe do these on 6x6 cardstocks and then put them into a mini-binder maybe. That way it would be easy to do a second one for my younger daughter - she loves to cook. Elder one, not so much.

Well, after printing and running off, I think it's going to work better in a 8.5 x 11 format and album. So ...

I'll be working on this today. I've been thinking about it and I finally have an idea for what I want to do and how I want to do it. :-)

Last night, I pulled put out all of our spices from the spice cabinet.

Making myself a list & chart, so that I know what is what & what taste best with what!

I haven't decided if I will keep it in list format or if I should go ahead and make small individual recipe cards.

I guess we'll have to see!
