Aging in the Willamette Valley Interview

ON January 1, 2019 I was interviewed by John Hughes, host of Aging in the Willamette Valley.  We talked about the services I offer with My Beautiful Life Story: "Life is busy. If arranging your photos & preserving your stories has been on your to-do list, there is no time like the present to make it happen. Memories, like photos, fade away, and time is fleeting. Photo albums that weren't archived can damage images, and memorabilia, slides, and images stored incorrectly can become a real mess to salvage."

My services preserve photos, memories, and stories for children and grandchildren who may not know the stories behind the pictures.

Retirement Connection Creating a Lasting Legacy

RETIREMENT CONNECTION

October 25, 2018~ Having worked with many folks in the Senior Services industry, I was familiar with Retirement Connection  , THE gold standard resource guide. That’s one of the reasons I was  FLATTERED when owner Amy Schmidt asked me to write an article about photo organizing for the October 2018 issue: “Creating a Lasting Legacy”. 

Retirement Connection is truly an “at your service resource directory” chockablock with invaluable information. If you are looking for a answers at your fingertips, you’ll want to have a copy for your very own. Look for my sponsor ad on Page 75 and my article “Creating a Lasting Legacy” on Page 27 of the October 2018 Mid-Willamette Valley issue!

NixPlay Recounting One Family’s Past Through Pictures

NIXPLAY BLOG

September 25, 2018~ Nixplay blogger Marianne Salazar wrote an article about my work: ” Recounting One Family’s Past Through Pictures”. Nixplay  learned about the adventurous journey I traveled alongside  Dr. Homer Speer, Sr as I worked digitizing the Speer family photo collection. This family’s photo collection is held by Homer Speer, Jr  ““I’ve scanned hundreds of Homer’s collection of vintage photos and postcards, learning the stories behind most of the family treasures he had collected. I’ve learned a lot of local history along the way while preserving important mementos and photos.” NIXPLAY’s WiFi digital frames ARE the next big thing for displaying pictures and sharing them with your family and friends. Read the NIXPLAY Blog here.
