Crafting a Home Tutorial scrapbook for Dear Nephew

recipe cookbook, apartments for rent, condo for sale in Brookfield Illinois, I’ve told you that my nephew just bought his first home. Well, this young man doesn’t read my blog (shocking, I know. It’s all so riveting!) Anyway, when we were shopping for carpeting, he asked me for some of my recipes and some of his grandmother’s (my mom) and he asked me to write it all down for him.

I found these books in the dollar section of Target and knew just what I wanted to do with one of them – create a home tutorial for him as a Happy New Home gift. I won’t bore with the entire book but I wanted to share some of it …

In the section that I titled Entertaining, I even included a printed photo of his gram appearing to be partying herself back in the day when she was around his age (and everyone of those ladies stayed true to each till their dying day and made it a point to meet every year at “Club”, by the way)  …
