Gifts from the Heart Part 2 Holiday Recipes Book

The second installment in my "Gifts from the Heart" series is a Holiday Recipes book.  I made this one as a keepsake for Small Fry.  I am making one for my little pumpkin too.  I will put them in their boxes and one day they will be a treasure to each of them.  You could make one for someone you love right now.
 I found these blank books at Michaels Crafts in their $1.00 bins.  I covered the pages and made pockets for the holiday recipe cards (which I also found in the $1.00 bins). 
 I chose some of my favorite holiday recipes to write on the cards (in my own handwriting).  I know that one day when my mom is gone, I will be able to look back at some of the recipes she has written for me and be transformed to a time when I was in her kitchen with her.  I love her handwriting and I think it is a treasure to have as a keepsake-the handwriting of someone you love.  I wish I had something with my Baba's (Grandma's) handwriting on it.
 On the card pouches I wrote little notes about the recipe-who it first came from, a memory about it, or additional recipe notes.  I signed each one "Love mom."
 This would be a great gift for a Grandchild, a daughter or son (who is cooking inclined) or even a close friend.  Need another idea, check out this one:

  1. Very cute idea. I love your work. Thanks so much for sharing

  2. super cute idea. I have recipe cards written by my mom and my grandmother that I have framed and hung in my kitchen. The cool thing is they just happened to be on the identical style recipe card! Thanks for the idea!
