Last week I introduced you to Heritage Makers. If you didn’t get to read the post you should start here. And FYI, I know a Heritage Makers Membership would make a great gift for a mom, child or friend who likes to use words and pictures to create memories.
This week I wanted to share some of what we have done with our Heritage Makers Membership.
My daughter Emily wrote a children’s story when she was 11 years old as one of her school projects. That was three years ago. This month she had it published through Heritage Makers!
What an accomplishment for this 14 year old young lady. She now has a hard- back book of her story forever, and will be able to read it to her children and the little neighbor girl Ava, who the book is dedicated too. I am so proud of her!
We have the Premium Membership so Emily was able to choose from all of the colors, templates, etc. This made it easy to make every single page look different… as that was very important to her. Emily loves color and design, maybe graphic design is in her future?
I have to wonder if creating a book from their written stories would in some way give our children a delight for writing. Having a purpose or reason to create a story would maybe make writing more fun?
Emily didn’t use her own pictures in her story book, but you can. Lesly, Emily’s sister has used her wedding pictures to create a wedding book/wedding album. This book is beautiful! It will be published during our next Digi Crop meet-up. These are very special books, one of a kind.
Are you working on a special project and want to keep a record of the process? I think it would be a blast looking back at myself in a book, notice I said, I think! I just love the whole Heritage Makers concept and I hope you get the chance to check it out and get some words in print, WITH those pictures. I have lots of pictures in a box with no names or dates on them! Ugh.
Now… I’d like to share Digi Crop with you. I meet once every month at a coffee shop in north Spokane and have an evening with my girls, Candace (creator of Heritage Makers), and other ladies to work on our projects. You can’t beat this, a girls night out being productive and having coffee and laughs all the while.
And… you can visit Candace, my personal publishing consultants website at WWW.DoctorStorybook.com and start your book today.
You can just stop by for a demo or bring your computer and get started on a project. Will I see you there?
