The Year of Cake
My husband suggested I bake my mother a different cake every month for a year. She and I both thought that was a bit much but in January 2019, I found myself trying a new cheesecake recipe. Then in February, I made a cake for Valentines and it went on from there. I shared some cake with her, had some for ourselves and made a batch of cupcakes for a friend. Some recipes were old favorites, others completely new to me. One flopped, literally the inside of the cake just flopped out onto the plate uncooked. I made 11 cakes over last year which is a bit more baking than usual for me.
For the page, I marked ones we liked with hearts, or check marks or stars. The page is a little crowded so the embellishment is minimal.
You could apply this idea to any hobby. Most scrapbookers I know do other hobbies whether it is baking, crocheting, knitting, embroidery, painting, sewing. Savor your little victories with photos to capture your work. I mined my Instagram for most of these photos.
