Bake Sale Blog Hop

Welcome to day one of the Bake Sale Blog Hop,

If you are arriving here from Tracy @ Craft Junkie Too then you are in the right place. If you have just happened along my blog and would like to start at the beginning then click here. On this blog hop you are going to see anything and everything that has to do with bake sales. Get ready to get some great ideas!

The project that I made to share with you is a recipe book that I made out of a notebook I bought at the dollar store. I have made these in the past for gifts. I also sew and usually give it with a homemade reversible apron. They are always very well received! I have one that I use to record only my favourite recipes in that I go to often. I like the idea of all of my favourites in one handy place. I also think it will be neat to someday pass this well worn book on.

Thanks for stopping by today. Your next stop is Jenny @ Crazy About Cricut
Happy hopping!

Tara
