Item Description...
In our fast-paced world filled with more and more materialism, this book celebrates family, friends, and relationships. This unique guide inspires and encourages people to capture stories and memories for current and future generations. Precious photos, stories around the family table, milestones along one's faith journey, awards on a shelf all have meaning. This book shares 500 ways to highlight the meaning of a specific time, place, item, event, or person. These committed Christians share ways to take these raw materials of personal history and preserve the story by creating a gift, connection, window to the past and the future. This guide inspires readers to get beyond the "fear factors" holding them back - overwhelming volume of memorabilia, lack of creativity, expense, time, reluctant family members. They share simple ideas for creating your own Family Originals - truly the most important "stuff" in our life journey.

Publishers Description
In this day of fast food, instant messaging and cell phones Create Your Own Family Originals is a fun, exciting and inspiring book to turn your thoughts to what is real and important in life, family and friends. This unique book will evoke a smile, spark a memory, and encourage celebrating special occasions in your own life and in the lives of those you love. The book itself is a wonderful gift for family and friends. Inside it is filled with meaningful and personal gift ideas for those very same people. In our consumer-crazed world, we sometimes overlook the fact that a gift of memory, a personal message of connection, or a thoughtful gesture might have more value than all the tangible objects and monetary gifts in the world. Family Originals focuses on this concept and promotes easy ways to share personal history, unique moments and family lore with loved ones. Story-telling is a timeless way to communicate, and this book is filled with real stories about real people. Some humorous, some historical, and some poignant, these stories translate into powerful messages. For anyone who can identify with such phrases as "My, how time flies " or "Do you remember when?" or "I wish I had asked my parents about that " Create Your Own Family Originals is a special find

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Family Originals will show you how to create Family Heirlooms!  Jul 12, 2006
Lucie and Lucy have written a book to inspire you to preserve family history in a fun and heartfelt way. This colorful book is filled with hundreds of photos to show you examples of what other families have done. It will help and encourage you to select and collect ideas and keepsakes and then give you creative ways in which you can preserve them. What better way to connect with those you love than to create an heirloom - a personal lasting "Family Original." As a grandma who feels strongly about passing along family lore, history and values to grandchildren, I highly recommend this book.
Move over, Martha Stewart  May 21, 2006
I had the pleasure of meeting co-author Lucy Lewis at this year's Book Expo America, and Family Originals was such an impressive book that my wife and I each went home with a copy - and if you want a book that will truly inspire you to turn family history and memories into a living, shared celebration of life, you will too.

If you are you like most of us, with a drawer full of faded photographs and a yearly struggle to remember every nephew's birthday, this book is full of practical tips that include a step-by-step game plan for organizing your family photos, a treasure trove of places that memories may hide, from recipes to exercise journals, and nearly 100 pages of themes ranging from holidays to old vehicles to your religious faith. But much more than that, it gives you a recipe for building the stories, the memories, and the shared values that form your family's "culture" - and as an author on organizational culture and communications skills, the authors' focus on developing this sense of "who we are" and passing it along really resonated with me.

The book itself is a stunning visual achievement, thanks to the design efforts of David Hunt - ideas are literally popping off of every page, with hundreds of suggestions and seemingly a cast of thousands - their contributor acknowledgements alone represent two full pages of small-point type. This is nothing less than a tool to bring your family closer, and build relationships that stretch beyond our lifetimes into history.

-Rich Gallagher, author of The Soul of an Organization and Great Customer Connections
I'd give it 10 stars if I could!  Jun 22, 2005
This book is such an innovative way to learn different ways to keep my family keepsakes and memeories alive. It has spawned on to even new ideas and then realizing I already had some of my own to share. Tell everyone about this book because preserving our family history is important to those who are young.
Less guilt, more ideas  May 10, 2005
At first glance this book might make you feel guilty about all of your family projects that haven't gotten done, but the exact opposite is true. The authors have made it easy to find and embrace a project that is perfect for the task at hand. They encourage real people with real schedules to start small, and they give us unique and motivating ideas. My personal favorites are the ideas for preserving my mother-in-law's recipes, the dictionary of family expressions, and the self-addressed postcards to document family vacations. But there are hundreds more, all presented with clever and hysterical family photos and graphics to stimulate your own creative juices. I highly recommend this book to any family who has ever been on vacation, had a birthday party, or loved a grandparent -- which is just about all of us.
It Got Me Going!  Apr 12, 2005
Family Originals is a wonderful book that will have you reading it once just for the fun of it, then going back to start your own lists and projects. There are so many good ideas and examples that even I stopped my procrastinating ways and swung into action to record more of our priceless family memories! It is great fun to give a copy to all of your extended family to get them going, too. The ideas really begin to flow, prompted by this well organized and creative book.
