PROJECTS Week of June 13th: Strawberry bounty

PROJECT 1: Starting in on the baby boy scrapbook. I do a scrapbook for each of my kids' first year or so. Each one begins with a family tree. This time around, I couldnt find a page I liked, so I decided to make my own. First, I went online and searched for "family tree images". Second, looking at this image, I drew the trunk freehand onto brown cardstock and cut it out. Then I typed and printed family names on green cardstock and freehandedly(?) cut them into "leaves." Then I glued it all on the page and.....
I LOVE how this turned out. I'm SO glad I decided to be creative AND it cost me nothing! (Picture removed due to personal information).
PROJECT 2: Strawberry freezer jam. This may not seem too exciting, but I am so proud of myself! I grew up on this jam. The first time I had store bought stuff I couldnt figure out what was wrong with it. I FINALLY made some myself and couldnt believe how easy it was!
PROJECT 3: My first Strawberry pie. I have made tons of pies in my time already, but I don't think I've ever made a strawberry. At least not an entire (crust, glaze, fresh cut berries) one from scratch. Isn't it picture perfect? And it tasted so too!


  1. How fun rebecca! The tree is too cute! And I can't believe your pies!

  2. Please send a few pies to me so I can review them on my PHOENIXPHOOD blog!
    They look aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamazing!

    Hope all is well...

  3. I must say, my pies are amazing :)
    I think it would be cute to make another family tree and frame it for the family wall.
