I deserve Ice Cream

Here is a little series of pages of varying sizes. I really like this artbook I made. It was for sale, but nobody wanted it. Wah.

I used someone's old recipe cards. Recipe cards are great. When I go to estate sales there is always a box full of recipe cards with stains and fading and hand written notes. I find them comforting. My mom kept her recipes in this looseleaf notebook type thing. It is filled with cutouts, handwritten recipes. Looking at it reminds me of home and growing up. I am glad I have it.

There is history in a family's recipes. I am always glad to take them home from an estate sale, give them a new home.
