I haven't been feeling well, so I'm really sorry I haven't had so many freebies up over the last week.  I've been so busy with lots of doctors appointments.  I'm tired of them.  I'm just tired in general.  I've got a fun MRI today, but I wanted to post to my blog before I went in.  I'm truly amazed at how I'm blessed with strength despite of all this.

I do have some new recipe brag book templates.  They're great for making a little recipe brag book and they have extra room for journaling and not so many pictures although you could substitute more pictures for the journaling!  Here is a preview:

Just because I feel like it, they're 20% off!!!!!

Here is a freebie for you:

I'm sure all will go well with the MRI, although I hate getting them myself! Thanks for all you do for all of us! We appreciate you so much! Hope your well on your way to recovery!!

grambie said...

Yeah, So wonderful to view your darling recipe book and its spacious allowance for journaling. Too bad, I don't cook anymore, except for the main parts of Thanksgiving dinner. Can't hold objects unless you want a mess, but a cute idea indeed.

Thanks for another darling template with the oval shapes. I love to add text or stitching around ovals, so this is perfect. I hope you are feeling better. Just remember the main key is rest, rest, rest. You have been more than generous with your gifts of love, so no apology is needed. LUV to You and Yours!!!

thanks for the template! the recipe book is adorable--gonna have to get that!

Tink said...

I sure hope you are feeling better soon. Though we could commiserate together. I still have an ear infection hanging on after 3 weeks. I'm blaming it all on the weather (which was in the 30's yesterday and is in the 60's today).

Your recipe templates are just adorable. This is one I really should consider getting so I can pass along my kids favorite recipes to them. :)

Thank you for the beautiful template and again, hope you are feeling better soon.

Sharon Kay said...

Good luck with your tests!

Thank you for the template ... I really like it.

Wish the recipe pages were in 6x6" (or 8x8" and I could size it down)... as I am in the process of filling about 14 recipe books (themed) but they are all in the 6x6" size. That would have made it nice. oh well 8-)

I found it! The link to give comments is white on a parchment background on my computer and I wasn't seeing it. In any case, thank you so much for your templates. They are always excellent and this new grandma is using them frequently. Take care of yourself--you're too young to feel tired!!!

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove box...an unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?
  • The root of all toilet clogging evil is apparently a ball point pen and it's nearly impossible to dislodge one of those from the inside of a toilet.
  • You know you have to do some serious laundry when you actually consider wearing your 11 year old daughter's Hannah Montana shirt.
  • My 6 year old daughter got a comb stuck in her hair and we had to cut the comb into little bits to get it out of her hair.
  • My kids keep breaking the toilet seats! I guess I need a bulk package of those too!
  • Chocolate chips are not a food group.
  • My toilet seat says "Hailee" on it!
  • If there's work to be done, all of the kids need to use the bathroom or get a drink.
  • All two-year-olds think the baby swing is for them!
  • When you have 6 kids, carpet is your enemy!
  • You know you have a large family when your grocery receipt is 4 feet long.
  • The toilet is clogged and my husband found a plastic easter egg in the pipe.
  • My daughter just asked me if she can put chocolate sprinkles on here melted cheese sandwich (really???)
  • I burned up another hard drive on my PC! Can I buy a bulk package of those too?
  • Well actually, my sand pile is full of socks and silverware!
  • My sand pile is full of socks!
  • The key to my treadmill is missing again...can I just purchase a bulk package of them???
  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.
  • My kids are storing a tumble weed in my garage for the winter!
  • My 10 year old son informed me that people have only discovered about half of the world's caves (thank you BBC and planet earth!)
  • My baby's car seat is full of finely crushed graham crackers (?? Little babies don't eat graham crackers)!
  • My husband's shoes are filled with Mr. Potato Head parts!
  • My two year old thinks the new baby swing is for him! He can even climb in by himself and work all the controls. Boy, does he have a rude awakening coming!!
  • I have a giant mud hole in my back yard.
  • My vacuum is fully of plastic easter grass.
  • My kids are too full to finish their dinner, but they have plenty of room left for cake!
  • I have a giant laundry basket full of socks, and we can't find a single match!
  • Miscellaneous items found while cleaning out my kids' toy box include a flashlight, rocks (no suprise), a sea shell (we don't live by the sea), a drill bit, a stapler, and some tree bark!
  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
  • I bought the EXPENSIVE vacuum this time only to find that my 3-year-old took it apart with a screwdriver!
  • I haven't showered for 3 days, but my house is clean!
  • I have 38 winter gloves of various sizes in my coat closet and none of them match.
  • We're out of peanut butter because my husband used the rest to catch a mouse in our garage!
  • Yes, my son won 1st place in the science fair at school, but he didn't turn in half of his assignments this term?
  • No matter how many toys my toddler got for Christmas, I still find him in the middle of my kitchen floor sitting in my crock pot!
