Happy Thanksgiving from us to you!
Personal and Family Histories are a big deal to us. Those who have the family stories or even know snippets about their ancestors cherish them. Those who don't have them, wish. Wish that there was something that they knew about the people they came from. Wish they could have a connection. Wish their ancestors left something.
Sometimes it's not easy to leave that record. We're busy. Or just don't think about it. Or we don't know what to write. Or, or, or. Well, here's one little help to try to get over your 'or'.
It's a journaling ebook - A Little Bird Told Me. It has a topic prompt for each page and there's 70 prompts. Just make your list. It may not be perfect, but it'll be something. Here's a little extra motivational thought from Pres. Kimball -
“What could you do better for your children
The Ebook is found in our Etsy Shop. (If you're on our mailing list we've emailed a few sample pages to you.) You can buy ours or make one of your own. Just make a little list. Begin today.
If you're looking for a tabletop or buffet table decoration for your YWIE or NB then here's a DIY Lighted Torch that just might do the trick. I made 2 of them and I've used them several times.
I enlarged the YW Torch image to about 15". Then I used a carbon sheet to trace the pattern onto the masonite board. I used a drill to make holes into each section to be cut out. Then I used my handheld jigsaw to cut out the design. These are painted white, though they could be painted the value colors if there're 8 of them.
Next, I bought small battery operated lights (very handy so I don't have to mess with finding a plug and having an extension cord), and hot glued (low melt) them onto the back of the board. I made sure the lights were visible from the front side and that the placement was staggered. And lastly, I took a tie wrap and tied all the loose wires from view.
The masonite torch slides in and out of the approximately 1" x 3" base board. Using a table saw, cut a channel the same thickness as the masonite board. With this base, no glue is needed and it pulls apart so it stores away nicely.
The little holes seen at the end of the boards are for dowels to slide into. Flags, bandanas, buntings or anything can be put on a dowel and slid into the holes. This makes it versatile.
Good luck on your upcoming Young Women In Excellence and New Beginnings.
