I just finished my second scrapbook!
|I had forgotten the second “s” and had to create a strawberry out of an “e.” 🙂|
I started this scrapbook of desserts a few years ago when I first started scrapping.
In it I’ve placed all the dessert-related recipes I’ve collected over the years, including family recipes.
|On this page I’ve got Mom’s “Cherry Crunch,” Nannie’s “Canned Apple Pie Filling”
and Chris’ Aunt Faye’s “Ginger Cookies.”
I had bits of pages and papers sitting in piles and in bags, getting wrinkled and torn. I figured if I were to ever use these treasures I better organize them for easy use and safe storage.
I’ve got plans for scrapbooks to house appetizers, drinks, soups and breakfast; beef and pork; and chicken and fish. But those books will probably be smaller than a 12″ by 12″ book.
The dessert book won’t fit in the closet with the other cookbooks! I could attribute that to poor planning, though I think the cookbooks were upstairs in our attic loft when I started this book. Oops! Oh, well. The book has currently found a home on a shelf on our small TV table.
Here’s a few of my favorite pages. Please excuse the dark spot on the pics. I can’t seem to get my Nikon cleaned. I think it’s time to get the body professionally cleaned. Oh, and get a new lens. After months of the glass falling out, the old wide angle finally fell apart this morning!

|This page has the pumpkin pie I make nearly every year. My family loves it and requests it often.|
|Pies, pies, all kinds of pies!|
Next up will probably be our wedding album. I don’t have books for the other recipe books yet, but the wedding album is ready to go with photos, paper and mementos.
