    • Neicy’s Post about the bracelet gave me an idea.  I know I am new to the site but I see so many amazing women on here with different backgrounds & beliefs all being supportive of one another, that I thought it would be fun to start a new tradition for those of us who are just coming into the fold here.

      The Idea
      What if we created a Friendship cookbook/scrapbook that we all passed around.  Each of us would do up a page or two (or whatever we felt like sharing) of our favorite recipes along with drawings or photos or whatever that we felt creative about posting around.  Maybe a story behind the recipe if you so chose or why it is one of your favorites.  Just add your own personal touch to it.  For sharing purposes we could just put it in an inexpensive loose leaf binder for now.  Then when it was finished we could design a cover for it.  Without having set pages of a pre-made book it would allow a lot more creativity and also help keep it more organized & flowing as it went along.  You would just place your recipe under the proper ‘Chapter’ in Alphabetical Order.  This would make creating a table of contents much easier in the end.

      Charity Option
      Once it has been passed around enough to ‘fill’ a book we could possible find out what it would take to market it for a charitable cause?  Even an ebook version would be a great option due to low cost but ease of marketing.  If it were successful perhaps we could do one a year to support different causes?

      How to Keep it Going & Organized
      We could start a ‘group’ on here that would allow us to post updates on the book as well as let new members join with their name at the bottom of the list (so by the time it was their turn we would know if they were still around to receive it).  We could send it out based on rank so the more dedicated members would receive it first etc.  Maybe have a dedicated group leader that was very responsible to make sure that it kept going.  Someone everyone trusted to give more personal information that just the connection on here (name/real email/phone etc) so that if it got Stuck that person could help get it unstuck.  We could also keep an online version scanned in the group somewhere.  Each of us that received it, after creating our pages would scan the new pages & add them to the online version.  If you don’t have a scanner then make note of that in the group so that the next person that does could scan all the pages that didn’t get scanned up to that point.

      Mailing
      Because it is a book we could mail it media mail for not very much.

      Just food for thought if anyone is interested.

    • Well give me some time to work this out.  If anyone else wants to be part of this or help out on the project let me know.  I will write out some guidelines and ideas for it and share it with all of you to see what you think.  Then work on putting the book & first pages together.

      I don’t have the capabilities to start a group for this so if someone who does wants to do that part for me that would be a big help.  Then I will start posting on there my progress on it and others can start to post their interest & ideas there as well.

      Really excited about this and hope to get it started soon.

      Love, Light & Blessings,

    • Ok the group is started.  If you want to participate just post on there.  Once I get to the details part I will email each of you to get your contact information etc.

      I will get to work on both the ‘guidelines’ and ‘ideas’ as well as the book.  I look forward to all of your input as well to ensure this is a fun experience for everyone.
