Happy Spring readers!!! We got hit with a big snow storm at the first of the week (30+ cm) but now its melting away with the warm temps and the little bits of sun.
I am re posting today because I have been working on a big presentation that I am doing tomorrow evening for 200; 8-12 year old gals!
Enjoy! Originally posted Sept 08
The other day as I was cleaning out the spare room I came across a bunch of plastic piture frames I had picked up at the dollar store years ago. My first thought was to toss these things but on my way to the trash can I had an idea.
I don't know about you guys but I have some recipes from people that are written on recipe cards. These are wonderful to have around but I find that my cards are starting to look like they have been in the recipe a few times if you know what I am saying. They get everything splashed on them and I always have to use my grubby hands to flip most of them over when I am in the middle of make the recipe.
Quickly putting two and two together I decide to save these and use them as recipe card holders. First I dug through my card making stuff to find some random stickers I have and placed Kate's Kitchen on the top to give it a little bit of decor. Now if something splashes on it I simply wipe it off with a wet cloth and my card is saved and can be placed back into the recipe box as clean as it came out.
Another idea that a wise friend of mine showed me is she places her cook books into a large Ziploc bag when she cooks. That way it preserves the pages.
