Here's a brand new place with help & more tools!

A new year is around the corner and I'm finding lots of great new tools. These will also make your Storybooking Experience that much more enjoyable. We've created this BLOG for you to have a 'one more access spot' to get the info you're looking for.

First off though I want to share the MAGIC of giving these Heritage Maker projects as Christmas gifts.

I sent out a Christmas letter about the Anticipation:

Christmas Morning 2006…..months of waiting to see the response…..

Here’s the anticipation:

I can hardly wait for my 84 year old Dad to be here Christmas morning as he opens not one, BUT TWO incredible bound gift books. Both were lifetime goals for me and a big reason for me to join Heritage Makers.

The Frost book is his personal family history going back to his grandparents, his British roots and the wonder of a pioneering family. It showcases a story of him being one of Gordie Howe's pee wee coaches and how he and his friends collected 25 cents to buy Gordie some skates. If I didn't tell these stories who would?

The 2nd book is called, "Through my Mother's Eyes!" My Mom, who Dad was a caregiver for 7 years never lived long enough for me to take her to Nova Scotia to see where her Mom & 6 previous generations had in Sept/Oct I took the trip in her stead. It was so beyond what I could have expected!! So I HAD TO CREATE a 12x12 Digital Storybook to tell and show the story. Beautiful transparent pictures of my Mom in her 20’s showcase her eyes on the cover.

I had the GIFT OF LIVING MY HERITAGE and could hardly wait for my Dad to receive a copy!

Storybooking Your Special Times


This is real, this is palpable, eyes welling, my Dad sees for the first time the book dedicated to my Mom who has passed on….he had to get his handkerchief before he even opened the cover.
