Custom Handmade, Hand Cut, Hand Stamped, Earth Friendly and filled with Delicious Recipes!!! By yours truely :)
Im tying my two favorite activities together, crafting and cooking, to bring you a one of a kind treat. My recipe book is my bible in the kitchen. And my kitchen is my playground. I experiment, I create, I make a mess, and sometimes, I flop. But the result of that is some fantastic tasting food.
Recipes come from family, generations long gone, a close friend, or even your own crazy imagination and the best place to put them is a personalized, handmade recipe book you can cherish for years and pass down someday to future generations. Share the joy of cooking.
I outgrew my old recipe book. There wasnt enough tabs, they weren't specific to what I wanted, not enough pages, when I ran out I couldnt find more to the size I needed, blah, blah, blah... So this recipe book will fix all those problems and more. There is a basic design that will get you started. Then when you decide you need more dividers, or for them to say something different, or different paper(maybe even a different color!), I'll have options for all of these things. On top of that, the cover is completly customizable, and not just by me, YOU can do it too! But if you're not the artsy type, I'm here to help with that as well. I want you to WANT to use your recipe book, and to show if off! I use mine EVERY day, why shouldnt that be something special?
Each recipe book will be hand crafted using brown binders board, 3 eyelet enforced holes with 1 1/4" album rings. 100 pages of recycled white paper hand stamped with a place to write in Recipe Title, Ingredients, and Directions. On every page back will be hand stamped with "From the Kitchen Of" so you can always remember the source. 12 hand cut divider tabs are included with the following labels:
*Tips & Tricks
(names of tabs may change but will remain in the same catergories, i.e. main course may be changed to main dishes, breakfast to morning food, etc.) due to creativity changes. :)
ALL pledges include shipping to continental USA. International shipping is not offered. Sorry :(
The price to get all materials to make the first 25 books ordered is what my goal is set at. If I do not meet the goal with your pledges I do not get anything. And then I cry... So spread the word and help me out!
If for some wonderful reason my goal is met and I get more than 25 recipe books ordered then I may have to push back estimated time of arrival until September instead of August. I will get them all out, in the order recieved, in the most timely manner I can. All items will be made with the highest quality.
Thanks again to all of you!
(In the meantime, check out my blog, which has new recipes updated all the time, plus links to some of my favorites! )
NO! These are build to be 100% customized! Think of what you want and need in YOUR kitchen! How many page, what the dividers will say(do you bake a lot, or make dishes from other cultures?), even what color pages, stamped or not stamped, etc. The opportunities are endless. Dont even get me started on the Cover, thats the best part! Custom cover to fit family, friends, or even have a few recipe books divided into different categories! Im targeting people who need some organization in their kitchen and to have all recipes at the tip of their fingers when they need them, and how they see best to find them! It really eliminated the hassle of the days old question...whats for dinner tonight?? You have everything you want right at your fingertips! Made for you, designed by you. There isnt anything better than that. :)
At my Etsy store. Im currently getting it up and going. Should be complete as soon as Im 100%(or more!) funded so I can purchase all the tools and supplies I need. Right now Im doing everything with an exacto knife, and although completely personal, also very time consuming and not everything is straight, as it should be. At my Etsy store youll be able to choose from a variety of pre-made dividers and tabs, as well as ones you design yourself! Extra paper(including handmade 100% recycled, from all the scraps im collecting now) additional custom covers(some ideas Ive come up with, or can be designed by you!) All of my ideas are on paper and waiting to be brought to life, but I need your help -------> thats where you come in, with pledges. :)
