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!
