Living and loving life with a little blogging on the side!
This past week my mother was going through her storage and came across her recipes. Now that she can no longer care for herself she decided to get rid of all her cook book and recipes so she passed them down to me. I came across this plastic bag which I know has to be as old or older than me. I was surprised at what was inside. As children we would at each Christmas bake and decorate Ginger Bread Houses for family and friends around us. This was a very big event at our home and one that I am happy to say we still do. Each paper or pattern inside this bag still have traces of sugar, gingerbread and flour I am very surprised that its not covered in ants pppfftt yuck. I remember the pure joy I felt at this time of year having the opportunity to make my own house.
This is one of many styled houses my mother made
This is the original recipe paper with all its tape, flour, sugar and traces of molasses
Patterns mom created
The brown spots are actual bits of ginger bread lol
So I was reading a blog by Then she made and found this really cool way to make a soup storage can holder so I thought that I would try it myself so I start with a box like this then I cut the end off of my box because my pantry doors would not close because the box was too long then I taped the end I just cut off back to the place i just cut it off of but I tucked in the ends then I cut half way down the place I just taped to make a hole that I can pull the cans from when I need one Here is the finished end of one side next on the opposite side I cut a hole in the top so that I can add new cans to the back as I buy them that way I always use the oldest first next I took scrapbook paper and covered the box
I used this spray adhesive only because I love it! rubber cement will work just fine or what ever glue you wish
and here is my finished product! Woo Hoo I did this in only one hour! not bad I am quite happy with it. see how it works.....cans in back and pull out the front
