~pages from my cookbook and a winner~

 Do you remember this post where I talked about making a cookbook?
 Well, it arrived, and I couldn't be happier with it!
I already want to make another one!
 The thing that I am the most proud of is the fact that I took all the photos in it.
Some are of things I've baked, some are of the kiddos, and some are just product shots.
 I am probably showing you more photos than you care to see......






 This is the only "colorful" page.
My niece with her rainbow cake!
 And here we have Harley, my kitchen helper.
{we just had to install a lock on our pantry because he figured out how to get it open.
 His favorite is pop tarts}

 The back of the cookbook below.
I'd love to hear if you decide to take the plunge and make one!
Also, Cody's room is DONE!
As soon as I take some photos I will post!
The winner of the Sparrow and Blossom giveaway is here!
xoxo

Oh wow! I've been a reader for a while, but just now commenting and I follow you on Pinterest. Thank you for all your wonderful inspiration. I absolutely love your cookbook. I'm jealous! No really, it's awesome! I've read Clover Lane for a long while as well and fell in love with it when she presented it too! I think I've chosen Blurb for my little girls baby book and maybe I'll get on a cookbook thereafter. Wish me luck!
Blessings,
Anna

the link for the original post is highlighted in this post, let me know if you still don't find it! :)

The cookbook was EXPENSIVE! If I do it again I'd probably do a smaller size, maybe less pages. I did find a online coupon code but it was still $120........
