We made do.
I've been poring over self-publishing guides, lists and how-tos for this cookbook project, but nothing is leading me to what I pictured when I began. Everything is too cutesy, too meticulous or too weighed down with a price tag. So, to this I say:
Screw the internet.
I have a brain and two hands and a hell of a lot of craft supplies(and baking to do)... see you on the other side!
P.S. I'll still be looking for inspiration and posting it on my Pinterest
