A few weeks ago, I decided I needed to update my cookbook. The one I have is a three-ring binder stuffed with all kinds of recipes I don’t use. I wanted something different, something that would match my kitchen. So after searching stores and the web, I knew what I wanted and I couldn’t just buy it.
So, I emailed Kristy and
demanded asked her to make a front cover and spine cover to go in a black three-ring binder. I had specific instructions.
- Retro 1950’s kitchen style or maybe a Diner thing.
- Dark red.
- Recipes written on the binder.
Well, she got all high and mighty on me and said she has to be able to creative things with it. The nerve! I said sure! She is very creative, but don’t tell her I said that.
This is what she came up with. Isn’t it pretty! She even put my name on it. 😀
Kristy said she liked it so much she made an identical one for herself. I don’t understand why she would want my name on her cookbook, but whatever.
The details are wonderful. You can see some of them here.
She even put a cute little bow at the corner.
Here is the spine.
During her creative high and mightiness, she created the dividers for the catagories. 😀 She laminated them and they look really nice.
It looks really nice on my counter too!
Now I just need to fill it with the recipes that I actually use. lol
Thanks Kristy! I love it!
