7 Reasons to Storybook with My Storybook Lady

1. No mess! Within minutes it’s easy to cover an entire table with papers, embellishments, glue, pens, pictures, and still not have everything you need to complete the perfect page. You can now sit on the couch with your laptop, while your kids watch a movie, and create all you want.

2. Did you take the time to hand write the story of all your scrapbook albums? Probably not! Publish with Heritage Makers Studio 3.0 and there’s no need to go back through the years of scrapbook pages to fill in the story gaps you left because you ran out of time. Journaling is just as fun as the rest of it now!

3. No more trips to the photo store to resize, recolor, or reprint pictures. You can do it all with the click of your mouse. What took 3-5 pages of scrapbooking can now fit into 1 or 2 page layouts!

4. All-inclusive pricing. The cost of Premier account includes all the embellishments, alphabets, paper, etc. that you will ever need. No need to stock up on flowers, ribbon and the like. A lot less waste. And it’s cheaper in the long run!

5. You won’t get bored. It’s easy to get bored quickly with a computer program that doesn’t change, or that is one dimensional that you can’t learn anything new from. You’ll love the tutorials in Heritage Makers and the opportunities to learn new techniques and features. It keeps you hooked and learning new things all the time!

6. You can fill gaps in traditional scrapbooks with digital pictures from Heritage Makers. Drag and drop into a template those events that perhaps didn’t warrant a little extra time to scrap. You can do a page in 8 minutes with this and it looks fab!

7. It warms your heart to make a book for a mother of her grand-daughters. And it brings satisfaction to know that your children will have a sense of history in a storybook that will last a lifetime.

~Remembering ^Baby Brian^ Today~

Today is Baby Brian's birthday. He would be 6 years old. I can only imagine what he would be like today, the toys he would play with and the friends he would have (other 6 year olds that live on our street that are living reminders of Brian)

If you have lost a baby, or know someone that has, I am here to say that, at first, the pain in your heart is unbearable. As a survivor of the pain, I can tell you that time does heal. The pain never truly goes away, but you do find a "place" for it within yourself. Hope, peace and healing do exist...you just have to make it through the journey to get there. And you will.

Several resources that have helped me find hope and healing:
Atlanta Perinatal Loss http://atlantapnl.com
SHARE Atlanta http://shareatlanta.org "The love stays...forever in our hearts"
Project: Storybooks For Healing http://mystorybooklady.com "Binding Hearts Together"
My family's TV interview about Atlanta's Walk To Remember: http://tinyurl.com/5t74gg

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or need help. The worst thing anyone can do is go through the grief process alone especially when everyone around you has never experienced the loss of a baby. ~ Betty
