Here are the last lines of the article and they ring so true.

Don’t let your wonderful photos just sit on your computer. Instead, print and preserve your favorites. You’ll enjoy these shots more when you can view them any time versus having them hidden away on your computer.

That is where I can help you put your special photos in a beautiful photo book for yourself or a loved one.  Check out my website for all the details.

Dementia and Alzheimer’s Memory Book

Memory book

Today I was surfing the net.  Thinking I would just read some interesting articles.  After reading several I came across one that just had to be shared.  It is making a memory photo book for a person who is having problems remembering their family.  There seems to be so little we can do to help them so if this will help for a little while it is worth doing.  If we don’t have someone with this issue right now most likely you will as it touches almost every family.  It was my grandmother.  I hope you will read the entire article it is extremely good and pass it on to others that it might help.

How to make a Memory Book for Dementia and Alzheimer’s Patients
Katinka Hesselink

Last Paragraph:   Remember: your parent isn’t there to comfort you. That’s no longer an option. Their life is not a movie, it’s the real thing and accepting your parent where they are – remembering or not – is more important than your need for them to slow the process of their disease. Use a memory book when it works and then stop when it no longer does.

Once you have read the article let me know if I can help you make a book for your loved one.  Check out my website, then call me. This is something that is close to my heart.

Frazzled By the Holiday!

DSC01614.JPGpIf you feel stressed out due to the holidays try to do less.  You know it really is OK to say no to some of the activities as all are not equal.  If you are having trouble deciding, make a list and see which ones are important to your family especially the children.  If there are not to many in your family you could each pick one event and all attend.  Parents be sure to set aside one event you will really enjoy and do this one together without the children.  Don’t forget to keep the real meaning of Christmas in all your activities!

Have a wonderful Christmas season!  You are the reason for the season!

Photo Books make a great gift.  It is to late to order for a Christmas gift, but check out all the other special occasions there are to give this wonderful gift!

Lost Photos in Harvey..Here is a way to help.

I woke up this morning thinking; what can I do to help my fellow Texans that are suffering so much in South Texas.  You can do money, supplies or volunteer.  Then God (at least I believe it was God) put it in my head!  If you and your family were having to leave your home not knowing what you would come back to; what is the one thing you would be most stress about leaving behind.  Me personally would be my family photos.

Here is what I would like to do.  If you have a family member in the flooded area that has lost their family photos maybe I can help you.  For the first 10 people who contact me and discusses their need I will give them 50% off the price of my regular digital photobook (see my website ) this will include my scanning 50 printed photos free.  These 10 people will be put in a drawing for a free book.  I will draw two people and those two will get their book for free (if you have already purchased the book you will be refunded the amount paid).  This is a way that you and I can help your family member or maybe a friend reclaim some of their memories.  We can use your prints or if they are in digital form you can send them on dropbox, share on facebook, web-album, or thumb drive.  Please check out my website.  This offer is good from Sept. 2 until Dec. 31, 2017.  This is a great way to give something to your family that only you can do.

captureGraduation time is here again!

It is time to be thinking of a great personalized gift for your special graduate.  Graduation is an important milestone in life’s journey.  Why not show them how far they have come in just a few short years by giving them a photo book of their life this far.  They can enjoy the photos, articles, and adventures that have happened since they came into this world. It is a good way of keeping family and friends close when the graduate leaves the nest and starts the next phase of their life.  This is a one of a kind gift that they will cherish for years to come.

You can make this gift, however when will you have the time?   All you have to do is get the photos and articles to me.  The book will take about a month to create and mail to you (if you are in Lubbock you can pick it up).  Get your photos and articles together now, then call me and schedule a time to talk.

Please check out my website for all the pricing information https://photobookdesigns.com/  There you will find all kinds of interesting ideas and don’t forget Mother’s Day is also coming up soon.  If you reference this article you will receive free scanning on 20 of your paper photos or articles.
