And Another Swap. . .

Another swap has come home to roost. This one was a Vintage Holiday Recipe Book organized by Gina Armfeld of the Artjournalz Yahoo Group. Each participant was asked to create a recipe for the holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, New year's, etc.). Then on the reverse side of the recipe, we created a mixed media collage using a vintage holiday image. Each of us madeI think 16 or17, (it's been a while so I don't remember the exact count). Then we sent all our pages back to Gina and she bound them into the gorgeous keepsake recipe book shown above. And just look at how it arrived at my doorstep - all festively gift wrapped by Gina herself! Isn't she clever?
I chose a fall/Thanksgiving recipe for Colonial Pumpkin Bars pictured below. . .Mmmm, they are yummy! I've been making this recipe ever since my daughter was a little girl. The collaged page above is on the reverse side of my recipe.
Below are some of the other pages in the book. I can't wait to try a few of these recipes soon!
