For the past five years I've helped her make them. It's become our tradition.
We also exchange our Holiday gifts on this day.
One of the items she gave me is this darling recipe book. It's full of her own tried and true cookie recipes.
I love it! I think has to be the cutest thing I've seen in a long time!
It's made out of a photo album, recipe cards, scrap booking paper and charms.
Sandra is always so creative.
I just adore the colors and the vintage look to this book.
Look at that tiny whip she attached to the binder area. So cute!
The recipes inside are wonderful sounding! But, I think the paper they are typed up on is just fantastic! Very retro looking.
Here is a better look at the paper. Well it's actually vellum.
In the back she even added some sweet blank recipe cards so I can add my own cookie recipes to the book.
The charms are just so sweet! A great touch!
She even took the time to add some matching ribbon to the charms to make them add just a pop of color.
I'm so lucky to have such a great friend in my life.
I won't be making any of these cookies this year. Not to good for my Weight Watcher plan. But, I know when I do they will taste super!
Speaking of Weight Watchers, today was weigh in. I am happy to report I'm down another 2.4 lbs.
It looks like I finally broke through my slump I was in two weeks ago. I know I can make my goal of losing 10 lbs by the first week in Jan for sure now.
