Christmas/Chanukah in July?? Seems crazy but this is the BEST time to work on a great idea for the holidays...It's hot outside so spend some downtime inside and make those phtobooks you've been meaning to get to - they make such super gifts but not if you are scrambled trying to make them in November. ALSO one of my favorite ideas and something I did several years back - Make a family cookbook using your favorite photobook site. You can scan in the old recipe cards with the beloved handwriting of someone you love, scan in old/new photos, and use the text box to write out the recipe if you need to for easier reading. I did one of these a few years ago and gave out to several family members. I kept one for myself and love having all my family's long treasured recipes in one place! Remember if you need help organizing your photos or making the books - I help with that too!
