There are 3 parts of family memory keeping that are part of the crafting/scrapbooking world. First is Living History, what is happening now, the trip to the zoo, last years family reunion etc. Second, memories from days gone by, our ancestors, where they came from and how their experiences helped to shape us into who we are today, and finally staying in touch with the family that we have now, but don't see as often. I would like to spend a little time each week on all 3 of these.
My mother has owned her Design Studio for probably 2 years longer than I have owned mine, but she didn't know how to use it, so finally the other day she came over to help me move, and I sat down and taught her to use it instead. A much better use of our time, I must say. This is her finished product, it is a purse from the Forever Young cart. she removed the image that was on the original by using the design studio, and added a flower for a clasp instead. She used basic grey for the paper, and lots of foam tape to make the clasp really jump out at you. Good job Mom! She filled it up with candy and gave it to the girls at the front desk where she works.
