I have been invited to a Bridal Shower for nephew Jim’s fiancée, Laura. Everyone has been asked to bring a recipe and a spice or kitchen tool.
As I began filling out the recipe card the came with the invitation I began to think of the recipe disc I gave for Christmas in 2006. Ah, that’s the ticket.
I’m not sure if I did get one to Jim as I can’t remember if he was there for Christmas as he was in the military. But he has moved a few times since so I can’t be sure if he still has the disc anyway.
I had everything saved on my computer so it was just a matter of rechecking what I had done. I rewrote the “read me first” file, edited the disc label and made a jewel case insert.
The jewel case cover was the new aspect of the project. I used my Scrapbook Deluxe software to make the cover. I included wedding photos of my parents, grandparents on Mom’s side and grandmother on Dad’s side, a 1965 photo of three of us kids and the entire family at our house on Christmas 1990.
Also is a dedication to Mom, a description of the project and table of contents. The disc contains 110 of my Mom’s recipes, 93 of mine, 110 recipes I saved to try later, 62 household hints files and some recipes for wildlife (suet cakes, etc.). All the files are scanned and saved to pdf so they can be opened on any system.
