I found a box of old pictures I had printed probably done a few years ago when I first tried making greeting cards with my photos. If that wasn't cool enough, but I found the negatives! Negatives of photos that I can no longer take because the places no longer exist. The "Sky" mural that used to be next to SFMOMA I'm making into a magnet. I'm hoping I can ask the photo lab where I get my images printed can fiddle with the negative to get to looking better. But for now, this single print I'll use to make a magnet.
I'm hoping to get some magnets finished this weekend along with a couple other photo greeting cards. I'm slowly getting back to the groove.
Other plans today will involve making some chili beans (grandma style) and homemade flour tortillas. Probably a year or more ago my grandma had shown me how to make flour tortillas. I made them once on my own and they came out pretty good, but not as airy and fluffy as hers. But at least they were edible! Really, not bad for a first try. So today I'm going to try them again. I hate that I didn't write down her instructions so I figured I'll try the Rick Bayless version which is the same as my grandma's except without baking powder. Let's home I make my grandma proud!
How are you spending your day? Do you have any cool family recipes that you love making?
