Recipe Organizer

Hi All.......Long time no see.  So much has happened since I wrote last.   My husband has been very ill and just when we thought he was recovered everything went wrong.   He had an aortic aneurism and dissection.    Thank God we both survived this latest episode.  Hopefully he will continue to recover and get back to work and chopping wood and running back and forth upstate.

I haven't been able to craft for weeks and am so excited to share my first project since my last post.
I made this for a shower gift for my nephew's finance.  I heard they are purchasing a wonderful 90 year old home and I think this will look great in their old time refurbished kitchen.

This is the Recipe Organizer

I couldn't put the Tim Holtz feet on the corners that I had planned to keep the box from getting dirty on the bottom because the drawer overlaps the corner so....I came up with the idea to use the bottle caps that you can get anywhere on the bottom of the organizer and they work perfectly.  Just lifted the box enough to keep it clean.  They looked cute on the bottom.

                                  Just a few pictures to show you the Meal Planner

If you lift the lid and place the cherries inside....you have a wonderful rest for the meal planner or whatever recipe you are following.

 This is a picture of the box opened all the way up recipes to the right and Meal Planner on the left

I enjoyed making this.  It certainly was a challenge and I will be posting pictures (soon) of the coupon wallet that will go into the drawer.
Thanks for stopping by...love to hear from you.

* Thank you to Kathy Orta for this design

Close To My Heart

Hi and Happy Summer to all.  Today is a beautiful day here on Long Island.  Almost 80 degrees and the sun is shinning.
As some of you know my hubby had been ill since late January and I was consumed with taking care of him, the house,the bills, and most time consuming the dogs.
I am sorry to say that my Close To My Heart business and my crafting has taken a back seat.                 I have not been able to meet my quota for this quarter and have decided that I will be selling the goodies that I have accumulated and closing up shop.

If there is anything you would like to order while I am still active I will be happy to get it for you at my cost and I will be listing stamp sets and paper packets at a discount on this site by the end of next week.

A big thank you to Susan (my upline) for all her help.  The ladies that signed up with me....I wish you luck and whatever I can do to help you..please let me know and to my customers....please know you are always Close To My Heart.

Click on the CTMH Book in the right column to browse.  To place an order PLEASE EMAIL ME  at Gingbred@aol.com to get the discount.         :-( There is nothing I can do if you place order yourself.  You must e-mail the order to me.

Please continue to follow my blog...I will be crafting and scrapping and will be posting pictures of my projects.   Hope you will visit and comment so I know you were here.
Thanks for stopping by.
