WMS October Release - Waltz

Welcome to the October WMS release blog hop. There are 6 wonderful sets this time around and today we're showcasing Candy Jar Christmas and Candy Jar Christmas Fillers.

As usual, there will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from one of the Design Team member's blog. You have until October 17th 11:59 PM, 5:5 9AM Central, 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern. So be sure to start at Claire's blog for the full list! Mona's next on the hop.

Holiday meal planning is a big deal in our house.
We take our appetizers, our desserts, very seriously.
I usually list out options with low fat, good grains.
My husband finds things with high fat and lots of carbs.
And then fight it out.

I made a little recipe holder that fits in my purse.
When I come up with a brilliant idea for the holiday menu,
I can just pull it out and jot it down.
Instead of recipes, you could use this as a to-do list, a wishlist for Xmas...


I have dividers to break the holder up by section.
Because I like things to be organized.
Maybe a little too much?
(Sorry for the blurred photo... I didn't notice until it was too late and the sun isn't co-operating right now)


Next up is the ever so talented Mona. Be sure to check out her fabulous projects!

I love, I love, I LOVE!!!
Christmas gifts...
here I come!
These are perfect...
especially when you're trying to write a recipe from Aunt Edith and you have to do it on the back of a sales ad!! :)

Julia Aston said...

What a fun recipe book idea Belinda! I love the colors you used and the stampings on each page!

Peggysuez said...

Very pretty, love the color choices! And like Renee above, I'm always writing down recipes on the backs of envelopes and then those envelopes disappear.

Kelly S. said...

O.M.G....I am so in love with this idea, Belinda! I would use it to keep other people's recipes! I am always at some Christmas event asking someone "How do you MAKE this?"!!! Now I have something to whip out of my purse and jot it down for next year. Add to the fact that you chose the cutest design with the Small Labels, the pink and red, and the jump ring, eeeek LOVE!
