before. (recipe book makeover) while this one is cute, in a farmhouse sorta way, and it is small (allowing for easy storage)... it IS small. for this wife of twelve years, and mom of two boys, there isn't a lot of time spent on handwriting recipes. more often it involves a search on google or an email from a friend, at which point i quickly print it out and get cookin', or bakin' as the case may be. thus my cute & small recipe book has accumulated many folded, recipes. this does not make for easy meal planning, nor timely retrieval of a particular recipe when i need it. so it was time. time for a makeover.
step one. picked up some super fun scrapbook paper, gathered some scraps of ribbon, printed a title page as well as some labels and set up my dining room table like the set of a commercial for all things food. snapped a handful of themed pix to use for my dividers.
