mainly munchies

Recently I took on the project of making a recipe book for our mainly musics’ mothers day present.   Each week different families home bake the most scrumptious morning teas every week for the mums (and, being a ‘big person’, I get to join in!)

There were a couple of problems but thankfully we sorted them out just in time before the big day arrived.  Here’s the finished product:

I used Creative Memories Storybook Creator 3.0 for all the layout work and to design the cover, which worked really well.  A friend who’s daughters are on the team donated all the binding material; combs, backs and plastic covers, which was a real blessing and helped us keep the costs low.  The finished product was about 35 pages, with roughly 40 recipes included, along with a blurb about mainly music.

Me, relieved to have finished!  It was a big effort but well worth it – I know the mums love it and I’m thrilled with how it turned out and the experience to bless the beautiful mums of our town!

  1. The covers look great! Now all I want to do is take a peek inside at those recipes. 😉

    And your hair looks so cute! Did you get it cut? 🙂

    1. Hi Kira
      Hmmm… I’ll have to think about sharing some of my recipes – mmmmm!

      Yes, I did get my hair cut! Thanks for noticing! 😀 At first I didn’t like it, but it’s grown a little bit (at least, Nomi and I think so!) and I’m enjoying it. I can’t put it up, which limits what I can do with it, but it’s different and now I know if I’d do it again! How do you like your perm, now that you’ve had it for a while?

  2. Hi Jess, the book looks great, I hope I can get a copy at some stage. I’ll have to ask Megan if there is one coming this way!! You did a great job. I love the cover – simple but pretty.
