Writing Your Own Story

A new line we received over the last week is one called Life Stories by My Mind's Eye. Many people scrapbook or craft to create books and other items for their children OR to do a heritage book of their own families. This line is created to make that process a little easier.

One of the ways they do this is with these daily dose cards. Each one has a different prompt for journaling--trips, pets, children, and many others.

The papers are also set up to allow an easy way to complete the books. About half of the papers are printed with designs such as flowers, plaids, etc. The other half (or so) are forms essentially. They are designed for fill in the blank information about a person's life.

The colors are muted and all of the line is on a kraft paper type background. This allows a person to individualize the style to themselves. Or so it seems to us. You can go as bright or as soft as you desire in the color scheme and as pop or vintage as desired in styles.

In January, we are going to offer a class that will cover several weeks to make a book "about me". This was done a couple of years ago with great success. Annette has come up with some wonderful ways to make this into one book. More information will come out about this later.

As you think about gifts this time of year, keep in mind how special something like a heritage album can be for your family. Later-
