Now that the wedding planning is over I actually have free time again! (Although I am still finishing up my thank you notes from the wedding) Lately I've been filling my newly rediscovered free time with some of my favorite hobbies: beading, crafting, and DIY. I love it!
One of my projects this week was a recipe "scrapbook" full of all the recipes I from the numerous cooking magazines that were piling up in our home. I hate clutter so these really had to go! There are always several recipes in each magazine that I know I would use if I didn't have to look through an entire stack to find them.
For the beginning of each section I attached the title to an envelope where I can store notes or maybe a few more magazine recipes I find.
I also made this cute little bag. I made it out of a placemat I found while wandering around World Market the other day. I love the pattern, but I have too many placemats already so I had to come up with another use for it! I think it's perfect for a little bag. I used cream 1 1/2 inch grosgrain ribbon to make the straps. Super easy!
Now I need to find my next project!
