Dichotomy and I have pretty similar taste so I am able to include a variety of my favorites.
If it doesn't ruin any surprises, can any of you tell me what you are using as your book? A blank journal? A binder? Paper you've binded into book form? A scrapbook?
I'm a little torn. I have a blank journal I could cover and dress up and I have a book that I've bound. I'm afraid both will get quite thick if I add recipes and any decoration.
