Layout flashback:Remember when?

This is a layout of my 2nd child hard to believe that's been 6 and half years ago. What's even harder to remember is my scrapbooking style before Creating Keepsakes. I hadn't discovered them yet. I always like taking pictures , holding on to momentos and not wanting to forget
those small moments that I take for granted . I wished I had journaled what I was thinking and feeling because I dont remember great details. Zaria was still scratching herself in the face so that's why she has socks on in the lower half of the layout. I was about as happy as any really tired mother of a newborn could be. I love my child of course, but that's all I recall being totally exhausted . Well going forward I will be sure to a write more even if it's just for those everyday moments. I also miss this style of mine (Whatever you want to call it. I did take Art history and African American Art in college. My favorite artists are Picasso and Romare Bearden both artists are great at collages and I believe that was my influence at the time.

My cookbook addiction

Hello my name is Cheryl and I'm addicted to really ,practical cookbooks! Yes I just posted on another Weight Watchers cookbook. I have no interest in the point system none whatsoever. This little factoid is how you know I just love buying, collecting and maintaining an extensive cook book collection. I only paid the $2.00 plus shipping and handling and got a real bargain! This is organized more like a traditional cookbook  soup and starters,breakfast and brunch,poultry,yeast breads,quick breads etc...I was a little disappointed with the slow cooker section.I use my slow cooker every week and was hoping for a little more to choose from.
