Here is Karen weaving in her doweling.
It is best to use an odd number of tabs for the spine. My mock up had 5 but I quickly went to 7 for my photo album. You can see in the upper right hand corner my template (purple paper with notches cut out). This ensures even that all signatures will be cut the same size and pattern.
I've already cut some dogwood yesterday for the spine and am ready to make a book at home.

Here are 2 different frames I made using the Season of Friendship. I started this project at my friend Diana's house using my friend Christyne's stamp set. I like this set so much that I finally ordered it myself. I was going to put one season in each picture slot but realized I could put 2 seasons in each so that all 4 seasons could go in each frame. The second one I will open up again and add a sentiment along the bottom since I mounted then a little high.
Lemon Waffles (4 servings)
- 4 eggs -- separated
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- grated peel of 1 entire lemon
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 and 1/4 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks with the sugar and salt. Blend in the milk, lemon juice, lemon peel, and butter, beating well. Add the flour and baking powder. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into batter. As usual, bake in a preheated waffle iron until golden brown.
Serve warm with maple syrup.
If you don't want maple syrup, try topping with fresh berries and lemon yogurt. Yummmmmm!
