Folksy Friday - Making Memories

Hello! this is my first Folksy Friday blog for quite a while. It's been great getting back into blogging recently and I had forgotten all about Folksy Fridays blogs and how much I enjoyed spending time window shopping on Folksy and finding just the right item to include for my theme. 

Last evening I went out with friends celebrating a new engagement and the group gift was really thoughtful, we all took a favourite recipe with us and pasted it into a scrapbook with a little message to help her in what we hope will become over time a collection of recipes with a few memories along the way.  I have a folder I keep my favourite recipe's in and just keep adding to it, I really must make myself a proper book to put them in lol! So my theme today is all about collecting those precious recipe's. 

Click on link below item to see more details.

Starting with a box, for those who have a box for everything (yep I have a few of those too!).  This one is from Dottie Designs (I have a few of Dottie's boxes myself and have also given them as gifts)


If you have time how about commissioning a bespoke personalised memory book, I have made many of these boks for a wide range of occasions and in many sizes up to A4.

Maybe a little box with a pack of index cards is the way to go, this one if from Witch Corner and I love the artwork

And if writing on cards, gluing or keeping boxes are not your thing how about a folder, you can add some polythene pockets and just pop in printed pages or magazine clippings and present it in a gorgeous A4 Ring Binder Cover from Whimsy Woo

Either way, it's lovely to have a collection of favourite recipe's to inspire when you don't know what to cook, to flip through and remember happy times associated with a particular meal or to gift to future generations, who know's where your recipe collection will end up!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my Folksy Friday Collection and have a lovely day.
