Upon reading the pages of this book, by Alicia Paulson, I felt right at home. It was so refreshing to read of someone who shared the same type of ideals for preserving family history and the same appreciation for family heirlooms. Family history is not just what is past, but what we are creating each day. I really appreciated that she presents a way to create family heirlooms that does not involve traditional scrap booking, but combines photos and sewing. I feel nostalgic just looking at the pages and I can’t wait to complete many of the projects in this book.
