Diane,What a GREAT IDEA! I have often wihed I had talked with my mother and all her siblings about family and now they are all gone. While I was working and raising family, I missed this great opportunity. The reason I got into digital scrapbooking was to make family history more interesting. This weekly time will get the job done on our lives! Thanks again.Gloria
This is a wonderful idea! I hope to find time to play along :-)
Hi Diane. I also have a journal given to me by my daughter-in-law last year for recording my life, but I have not yet written a single word in it. I think the suggestion of writing a page a week would certainly be doable. I will have to try not to fret over my sloppy handwriting and just do it! Thanks. I will follow along. About three years ago, I started documenting my story with digital layouts, but only got through my school years and then stopped. I really need some motivation it seems! I do have the time, so what is holding me back???Again, thanks for thinking about this.
What a great way to get this history written down! Small chunks at a time! I may try to work on this :) sometimes it is just hard to start!
I do love to read the comments here and need to do a better job of telling you how much they mean to me. Thank you for taking this journey with me!
I So want to do this! I have many of your kits and such and have yet to make a page! Any chance you know of a good "Beginner" PSE video????This is what I need to do...perfect ideas!
Sandy, yes, this is the way to begin...and I am not sure about PSE instruction but I did a quick search and came up with a number of links...here is a place to start https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7Ubo6d4bq0
Diane, I am so glad that you're doing this. I started, some time ago, to do "Life Books" for my parents and grandparents. I have been looking for a site that incorporates genealogy so that I could continue. Thank you so much for offering this opportunity!
Mary Sue, I am so glad you found us too!
I'm really excited about what you are doing here! I am working on a heritage album, featuring my paternal grandmother's family; that leaves three branches to go; plus writing about my life (this will help!), and then about my children's lives...not to mention wanting to scrap all the photos of my grandchildren; so setting mini-goals and prioritizing is what I need to do, and I believe this will be helpful!Thank you for putting this together for us - a few things are preventing my participation at the moment, but I WILL be doing this. :)P.S. If you go to my blog, you can see a few heritage pages I have done...
Anita: I love your list of goals, mine should probably be a bit longer when I look at yours .........
OK so I am a little behind, but I decided to do this as well. I started research on my family tree in 1992, the year my mother passed away. I have already made a scrapbook of my tree for my sisters and me, but those are mainly photos and facts, not stories, so thought I might incorporate these in for a fresher copy of the Family Tree. Thanks for a terrific idea. First question is done....on to the next one! Have a marvelous weekend ahead, I hope to be caught up by then...LOL! Hugs to ya, Mat
I am delighted to have you jumping in with us...AND I have posted this as a challenge/forum thread at DSS theStudio *I*F* you want to follow along in a forum with a galley etc. Just giving folks lots of options LOL the forum link is http://bit.ly/ADB-DSS-DYLseries
The mother-daughter dresses brought back memories for me. My mom didn't sew, but she had mother-daughter dresses made for herself, my older sister and me. I have a great color picture of us in the dresses...possibly Easter. Thank you for these wonderful prompts. I see you grew up in Emporia. I'm from north east Kansas but have enjoyed going to Emporia for various classes. Nice town!
Heather: Emporia was a very nice town to grow up in..I too went back many years later to get my masters at Emporia State! I would love to see that picture of you and your mother & sisters in a layout in the gallery at DSS if you are interested to share. HUGS! Diane
