As a mother of 1 beautiful and understanding daughter and wife of 33 years to an often hungry husband I have finally given in to the fact that my house has a kitchen. Until recently I've always referred to it as "the spare room". I have never really enjoyed spending a lot of time in "the spare room" because meals were often done on the fly as I juggled my schedule while driving between Niki's school and her primary activity of competitive figure skating.
I have always loved sewing and crafting. I also have found great enjoyment from enhancing and personalizing photographs. My daughter, Niki spent a semester abroad in Florence, Italy and my husband and I were thrilled to be able to join her for a too short vacation. Niki took hundreds of amazing photographs as she studied and traveled throughout Italy, France, England, and Monaco. So many were too beautiful to just paste in an album and they inspired me to play with them using mixed media techniques.
After my daughter graduated college and moved into her own apartment, I often got calls late at night asking for various recipes. I decided to organize her favorite recipes and move from scraps of paper and my memory to finally getting them on the computer.
One Christmas I stumbled upon a fun way to combine photo's with favorite recipes. I'd like to share these photos and recipes with you as well as offer a customized collection of your own photos and recipes which can be displayed in a box frame for wall display or organized in a recipe binder that can be passed on for generations to enjoy.
