So you've decided to pass the trove to honor the enduring in your life and would like to start an "heirloom family tradition" and don't know where to begin. No worries; we have it all planned out for you. When my daughter got engaged it dawned on me to compose a generational record-book about memoirs and combine it together with the Good Wish Umbrella®, as a personalized giftable set for her bridal shower. I wanted something different from a wedding journal or scrapbook for her to have. Where one can be inspired to write about their celebrated shower stories, making it easier to pass down as an heirloom. In this book; timeline & passage notes are held within these pages by name, date, and event of most importance, keeping them well together. Illustration frame prints are to portray a single evocative photo, with a visual interest for the storyteller, leaving fond memories and reflections of the past.
We recommend writing significant moments that occurred on the event while your mind is still fresh or regret what you forget you can never retell. Document something meaningful, make a legacy more intimate by leaving something behind; like a dainty handkerchief that captured a feeling, a message of an enduring departed loved one. Bible quotes about love for the soon-to-be-newlywed or a mother-to-be. Perhaps a shower invitation to endure for generations and enchant others to do the same or an anecdote for the unborn child. What about re-purposing a favorite ribbon; a memento from celebrated shower gifts that you once had into a bookmark or on a gift. There's a well-known saying; something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue; meaning something to wear on her wedding day.
Be unexpected and make a personalized insert card the way you would've liked to have. This useful ephemera explains and illustrates the history and culture that can be continued to endure through stories collected, that one may wonder. Provides interactive fun on every page, leading up to a surprise of the contents inside, induce smiles, enliven the guests' curiosity for show and tell at the shower before gifts are opened. Held in fascination it creates awareness of traditional values so they'll know who's hands been in and what it meant. This book; Heirloom Keepsake Memoirs™ can be a well-received gift with a much-appreciated accessory, by honoring past traditions, and making the Good Wish Umbrella®, relevant for modern times. It is now available to you and to enlighten a new family tradition on to the next generation. To continue tradition virtues, relive old memories, leaving a reflection behind and teach others something about life that society ought to uphold, as they are through generations to come. Writing this book was a rewarding experience. I hope that you will find it of value, so when the time comes for someone new they can enjoy this heirloom and write about their story, they will have it.
When my daughter announced her engagement, I was filled with excitement and anticipation knowing that she’d soon be a bride. I’ve always dreamed of watching her carry my invention, the Good Wish Umbrella®. Her laughs, as she wears the bow-hat, filled my imagination. I envisioned her holding the ribbon-bowed bouquet, so blessed by loved ones and friends. Once again, I pictured her at the wedding rehearsal, slowly doing her “Walk the Walk” down the aisle, holding the same beribboned bouquet, as tradition dictates.
As the inventor, I wanted to take it a step further with my product. Suddenly transformed, the simple umbrella has become extremely enticing, provocative to the touch, almost reminiscent of the Gatsby-era. I took the umbrella and hand-embellished it with precious rhinestone gems on both the top and beneath, as well as on the handle. When in motion, it becomes so captivating to look at as it shimmers and shines. As the reverie continues, I see my daughter smile and say, “WOW! How beautiful this is.” It mirrors my accomplishment and to me that’s PRICELESS!
Just picture this decorative umbrella in colorful gems, coordinating with the shower color-scheme. I suggest at first to softly sand down the entire umbrella, including the handle and wipe it down. Use a good craft glue for a good grip so that the rhinestones will adhere well and give it sufficient time to dry. Are “YOU” up to the challenge? Adding a little creativity can make a difference to that special someone and shows that you really care.
