To be more precise, some of my recipe cards were published in August/September issue of Digital Scrapbooking Magazine! They are part of a really wonderful article by Angie Pedersen about Family Reunions. She talks about scrapping not only to share the memory of the reunion but also to pass on your family heritage. And she is so right- recipes are part of our family history that really deserve to be documented and passed on.
As many of your know, my mom recently died. As we went through her house, it was natural to save photos and other mementos. But finding her recipe boxes was so much more personal to me. Here in her distinctive handwriting were the recipes she made when we were young. Some were special once a year recipes and some were everyday meals.
One of the great things about recipe cards is that they are so easy to print out. You can print them at home on cards stock or have them printed like a photo. Slip them in a 4x6 photo album and you have an instant recipe collection. Plus you can make extras for friends and gifts and replace damaged ones easily. Any one want to guess what I'm giving as a holiday gift to my brother and sister this year?
