I am so very fortunate to come from a family who knows how important it is to know and understand family history. My mother's family is full of verbal stories that are passed on to each of us. My daughter who is very creative used her medium of expression to create a beautifully moving movie called "The Thomas Family, A Story of Sisterhood." This was a documentary of my mother and her 5 sisters growing up in rural Florida. I cried and laughed. What a legacy my daughter gave to all of us for generations to come. The important lesson here is get our story down. No one can tell like You can.
Here's a small clip of the movie my daughter created. I could not clip it so I had to use my little Flip video to get a clip for you. This is a tiny clip of her wonderful wonderful gift.
Week 2, Question 2
What did you want to be when you grew up?
This is almost a corny question, unless you dig deep. One thing you will find me doing is answering the questions in an expected and unexpected ways. I'm using photos of me growing up whether or not it relates to the question. I want to use all the hundreds of photos my father took of me growing up.
WHEN I GROW UP I WANT 2 be
Pattern Paper, Moxie
Circle, Moxie (see a trend here!)
Making Memories journaling notes
Making Memories letters
American Craft Thickers, white leather...and inked with black Stazon ink
Note: The design on the bottom of the page was created by use one pattern paper as the background and I found a similar one in their line and used my Fiskars Fingertip craft knife to cut out the swirls. I placed it in the opposite corner to frame out my photos and journaling. Cool, huh?
