Perfect Gift for Grandparents

As a grandparent, I have always planned to write my life stories down someday for my grand kids. Family stories are so wonderful to have and I most certainly love and cherish the oral stories passed down from my grandparents. (It would be so great to have those stories in writing!) But where to start? And what is is interesting about my life?

Well I now have the perfect thing to jump start my memories and stories! Stories From My Grandparent, an Heirloom Journal for Your Grandchild has been put together by my blogging friend Susan Adcox.  It is an heirloom journal that asked the questions for you; you just fill in the blanks! Oh it's wonderful and so easy to do! And I really do love that it's spiral bound and lays flat to easily write in. A perfect gift for the grandparent in your life.

I love the questions! Some of the questions (109 pages of them!) I would have never thought of so of course that would be a part of my life I would have forgotten to include if I wrote the memories on my own. It takes you from your beginning,your parents, to your grand childs birth. 

Doesn't that just make you tear up?!

And, you are free to fill in your answers to the question at your own pace. You can skip around and answer the questions you want to as the memories come back to you. What fun is has been to read through the questions and remember the stories to answer them!

Besides the wonderful heirloom personal history that you record inside the pages of this journal, it is a beautiful book. I really love the picture on the hard cover. Give a gift that really matters and last! A gift that can be passed down for generation yet to come! And if you are a grandparent, why not give this journal filled in as a gift to your grandchildren?

  1. I also own this book and I agree with you about how special it is. There are several others available, but this one, by far, is the best.
    Happy Mother's Day, Connie!

  5. Connie, this is such a precious idea. I had my parents and in-laws do something similiar when my oldest was born. It's such a family treasure for us now. Thanks for sharing at Inspire Us Thursday on Organized 31.
