I've held off until the beginning of November ... but now it's time. The list of what needs to be accomplished is loooong, so we can hold off not a minute more .... what is it I'm talking about? Why my Christmas crafting of course!!!
I bake up a storm at Christmas time in this house - neighbor and family friend gifts have always been, and will continue to be edible ... cookies and candies to be exact. I love the sight of platters filled with assortments of these, all wrapped in shiny cellophane and adorned with big, red bows.
Where to pin the recipe while I'm baking has always been a problem, and 9 out of 10 times the magnets on the fridge win .... not this year though, I've solved the problem.
I made this recipe holder. It was very easy to make - letting the modge podge dry took longer than putting it together. The supplies I used - a wooden plaque, a Christmas ornament, a sheet of scrapbook paper, some wooden letters and mini clothes pegs, some paint, modge podge, and an easel. I'm going to make a few more of these, so I'll do a tutorial then ... I need to take the step by step pictures.
Problem solved in the cutest possible way ... who wouldn't want to pull out the cookie sheets with this little gingerbread chef overseeing the proceedings.


  1. I adore this idea! What a great way to keep recipes in sight but not where they will get messy!

  2. Very cute! I love the colors and the little gingerbread person!

  3. I LOVE this to pieces! I totally want one! Oh wait...heehee...i HAVE one :) I LOVE it. Truly truly love it.
