AND EAT IT TOO: Preserve Your Memories
Memoirs & More - Clémence Scouten, Founder
You can preserve the memory and meaning of your objects by photographing them, writing a few sentences about the object, and printing your own book.
Step One: photograph your object
Once you decide what you want in your book (art vs. furniture vs. all of it), go around the house and use your phone to take photos of the items in question. Don't forget items that may be in the basement, in closets, or otherwise out of sight (like jewelry).
Step Two: write about the object
Whether you only want to write one sentence or have more to say, writing down the who/what/when of your objects is key to preserving its meaning.
Why did you buy it?
Where did you buy it?
Was it a gift? Who gave it to you?
What is its value?
Is there a story associated with the object?
Why is this object meaningful to you?
Step Three: make a book
Now that you've taken the photos and written down what you have to say, it's time to make a book.
You can open a free account at Forever.com and upload all your photos. Then, pick one of the book templates they offer. The one called "Simple White" is very well suited to this kind of project. Once you pick the book template, it's easy to add your photos and content. If Forever doesn't suit your needs, another printing website to consider is Blurb.com.
