I decided that I wanted to do something special for Christmas. I thought and I thought - what kind of meaningful gift could I give this year that has a family history focus?
I have a friend that makes Smash Book scrap books featuring stories from her childhood for her sister. These are always a huge success, so I decided to do the same thig for my family.
In these books I incorporated my own memories and pictures into these books - stories about growing up and toys and adventure. I also included stories about my grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great grandparents.
I love that I am able to mix my stories with stories from the past - and it turned out that these books were a fantastic gift!
