“Our Love Story – He said….She said”

It’s finally complete and I can share it with the world! The storybook about my parents’ love story – how they met, fell in love, the proposal, the wedding – which I made for their 44th anniversary this month is finally able to be made public. I wanted to wait until I’d given it to them, which happened last week-end. They LOVED it! Brought back lots of memories. Lot’s of great stories…and some really funny ones… to commemorate the beginning of our family. TAKE A LOOK at the whole book:

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: one is roots. The other is wings.” – Hodding Carter (#1)

PART 1: ROOTS

Chronicling a family heritage.

Gone are the days when oral story-telling is how we learn about the family we come from. We so rarely sit around with family – immediate or extended – and share the stories of our lives. Not only is life incredibly busy, but in a day and age when people so often have to move away from family for employment, at times even overseas, quality face-to-face time with our families – parents, cousins, aunt, uncles, grandparents – is incredibly limited.

So, what can be done to record the stories of our parents and grandparents? How can we pass along to our daughters, sons, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren the family history that comes before them? What’s the answer? Create a timeless storybook chronicling your family heritage. Include family photographs, birth announcements, memorials, family letters, immigration records, school graduations, wedding bulletins, and SO much more. All in one beautifully, professionally published album.

This is one of my next projects – connecting with my ever elusive family roots that span 3 continents and 7 countries in the last 3 generations alone. Spread out over international borders has created challenges in building a strong sense of family history, but as I witnessed my sister gather up family documents and memorabilia I began to get a sense of where I’ve come from and who has gone before me. I know that out of this project will arise a sense of identity and comfort in knowing where my roots are from; a sense of belonging and acceptance as I trace family traits, interests, passions back several generations.

Join me on this journey into the past. Create your own storybook chronicling your unique family heritage with Heritage Makers. I’d LOVE to hear:

  • What incredible stories will you retell?
  • Which amazing people will you feature?
  • Where in the world will your journey take you?

Then, share these lasting treasures with your children, nieces, nephews, grandchildren. What better gift could you give?

Drowning in a sea of photos!!

Gone are the days when we planned our photos carefully. When every frame of film was precious; every frame cost money so we didn’t dare to waste it. Now, in the day of digital photos, we snap photos by the dozens…or by the hundreds. A one-day event leaves you with several dozen photos and a whole week-end can produce what used to take several rolls of film. The numbers grow even larger when you think about a week long vacation or chronicling a child’s life over the years. On top of this, we often have easy access to the photos taken by friends and family which can easily double, triple or even quadruple the numbers.

So, the question is, what do we do with all those photos? Most of us would probably answer, “Nothing.” They end up locked away on a CD, USB drive or catalogued on our hard drive on our computer or our albums on Facbook. We rarely print them. We rarely share them or look at them more than once. They just….are.

Now, how sad is that? Isn’t the whole purpose of a photo to be seen? To be shared? They have stories to tell, but no one can hear them trapped in the digital world. Their stories are part of our history, part of our life journey and they deserve to be heard.

That’s why I am so excited about all the possibilities with Heritage Makers. There is finally a purpose for all those photos. They can be transformed into beautiful family heirlooms, gorgeous works of art, informative announcements, commemorative storybooks, and countless other possibilities. Truly, the sky’s the limit! Their stories are being told and can be retold for generations to come.

So take a look at some of my creations. You’ll find many of them in my Gallery of Art page and links to other larger projects below this post. Then, let your own imagination soar and start dreaming of what your collections of photos could become! Think of all of your life stories, your unique experiences, that are waiting to heard! I’d LOVE to hear what you come up with. Hopefully I can even help you make that dream a reality. Leave me a comment and let’s start to get those stories out.
