Recipe Books and Round-up!

Hello friends
I've been a little bit AWOL!
You can blame Elliott for having a birthday :)
He loved the gaming festival in Telford and is already planning his next trip!
Last night I cooked a roast dinner (Elliott's favourite) and
we celebrated with wine, cake, ice cream and more calorific delights!
Here he is now aged 17!
If you spot a rather blurry card in the background, I've had to do that with my photo software -
I forgot it was there and it's not due to be scheduled on my blog until next week! 
Not a traditional birthday cake but a little array of yummy cupcakes.
I didn't make them (hanging my head in shame!)

Now to a round-up of news on the Recipe Notebooks.
There are still some orders outstanding - forgive me, I did get a little 
caught up over the Bank Holiday - they will be winging their way out to you very soon.
So grateful to those of you who have sent pictures.  I love to see them please.
Here is Janice's.
Love how she has added ribbon to the book rings.
As mentioned, all books are different with coordinated paper, lace, ribbon and twine. 

Carole has done a whole blog post showing her Recipe Notebook.
Clever addition of a pen holder and added a butterfly too :)
Great idea for the kraft wallet. 

Please keep sending the pictures.

For any of you that may have missed the purchase details - they are here.

August is nearly at an end - goodness it is scary how quickly the months fly by.
The good news is that I will soon start counting down to Christmas - 
oh yes that word that scares a lot of people!
I adore Christmas and my blog will be extremely festive.  I will be starting off 
by sharing with you quite a lot of projects I created for 
Make Christmas Cards - Bumper Pack.
It goes on sale on 3 September. 

Take care friends - I'm back soon but in between busy working on your 
Recipe Notebooks.

Hi, it was my birthday today. Tradition dictates that I should take cakes into work and being a keen cook, I always make them myself. Your Lemon and Coconut cake made a great addition to the cheese straws, tiffin and raspberry blondies. And all were eaten with relish by my colleagues. Thanks for the recipe, I would never have thought of putting the 2 ingredients together.

Toni said...

Lovely photo of Elliott Christine. Glad you all had a good time. Everyone's way of putting the recipe/notebooks together, is great to see. I'm about to order mine so look forward to receiving it soon.
I've been looking for a supplier of the thick cardboard, similar to what you are using for the covers on the kit. Think it's called chipboard isn't it? Could you possibly point me in the direction of a retail supplier please?
Looking forward to seeing some of your Christmas creations too.
