Generations to Come

Have you ever wondered what our future looks like when it comes to photos and preserving memories?  I’ve always been a scrapbooker and preserved my memories in a scrapbook so that my grandchildren and future generations could flip through the pages to see how their we lived and celebrated life.IMG_9253

Nowadays, more and more people are digitally preserving their memories via Facebook, Tumbler, Flickr, Google, iCloud, you name it, it’s out there!  They say “once it’s on the net, it’s always on the net”.   Technology changes so rapidly these days it’s truly fascinating from a techno geeky side!

It is a good idea to take your favorite photos and print them as a backup so that your future generations can enjoy thumbing through and old vintage scrapbook. There’s just something about turning the actual pages!  Creative Memories makes awesome scrapbooks and has great supplies.  I’ve been scrapbooking for almost 21 years and still keep my feet wet as a Creative Memories Advisor. So if you ever want to make that scrapbook, let me know.

The one below to the right contains many years of race memories of a person who is no longer with us.  Two photos have been added to the quilt below.IMG_9237

Adding photos to a T-shirt quilt or any sort of geneaology quilt can add so much personalization to a quilt.  I use spoonflower.com to print my fabric, so it’s high quality, washable, and has vivid color.  So take those shirts out of your drawers or closet and bring them to me to help you preserve those memories in a special keepsake memory quilt. It’ll be worth every dollar spent!
