Last two UFOs to share

OK, full disclosure, there are a few more things that are unfinished in the bin, but they are SO unfinished as to be more an IDEA then a project. So I will end with these couple Holiday-themed items.

First, the one I will 100% finish. Not this week, maybe not even this year, dare I say not this decade (!) but I WILL finish it. My son asks about recipes from holiday meals sometimes, and I always planned to do for him what my MIL did for me. She gave me a wooden recipe box, full of handwritten recipes that were The Hubster’s favourites. I’ve made a lot of them over the years and a couple are so well worn I need to recopy them for myself!

BUT, in 2010 I began a mini-book made to house cards with holiday favourites:

The recipe cards slip inside mini brown paper bags and there is plenty of room for someone to add their own, as I have to my MILs gift. I think for this one I will wait for a wedding before gifting it to my son. I’ve never been 100% happy with the placement and how the title reads – should be Thanksgiving To Do List for the Domestic Goddess but I’ve never felt that was as clear as it could be. Maybe I can fix that now!

Now a Christmas project. I am also inclined to finish this one cause I do really like it and I can think of just the right place to put it up when we do our holiday decorating. I blogged about the Rosette Words printables a few times but this wreath is here. The printables work if you hand-score the lines OR if tyou carefully position the Tim Holtz rosette die. I think it makes a cute wreath (indoor only, of course)

It is SO CLOSE to being finished, although the glue that stuck the rosettes has come unstuck in some places, so I just need to re-stick them and the wreath will be DONE. Problem is that I am never keen on holiday projects when it isn’t actually Christmas-time, and when it IS Christmas I have far too much to do to take time out for this kind of thing. So maybe, if I can remember, in the autumn I will drag this out and get it done.

Yeah. right. Who am I kidding?
