Memorial Album of Poetry

My very goo friend Melia just lost her father a few months ago.  Richard was a very unique individual and wrote some very lovely poetry which is unique in itself in rural Nebraska!  Shortly after he passed, I offered to help retrieve his poetry from his computer and compile it into  something all family could share.  Melia has been my friend through thick and thin so I decided to make her a small album showcasing some of his poetry.  She loved it so much and showed it to her mother, Myrna who also enjoyed it.  Myrna celebrated her 80th birthday this week so for a gift Melia had me create a similar album for her.  It was so much fun making the album as ecletic as Richard's poems.

Altered Rolodex/Password Keeper

I had a wonderful time altering this Rolodex that I found at the Goodwill for $2.  I normally use a larger rolodex for a place to store my passwords to websites, etc. but decided I wanted one that was smaller and easier to stash away. 

I used K & Company papers and a lot of Sticky Strip!   This particular Rolodex has straight angles so I didn't have to deal with curved tops or sides so the paper adheared beautifully.  If I happen to come across another sometime I'll alter it and put it up for a giveaway.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I thought I would give you just a window into my kitchen to show you the yummie pineapple upside down cake that I made this weekend.  It was gooey heaven!  I make one of these for one of my best friends every year for her birthday so a little practice in between time never hurts. 

I make my cake in a cast iron skillet in the oven.  I have never had anything turn out so pretty and good almost every time.  If you'd like the recipe just leave a comment and I'll post it, or if you have a great one, post it in the comments section.

Back to the world of paper....
