A Mother's Promise

I am sharing this with you today in honor of my Mom’s Birthday (September 23, 1931). This touched my heart when I read it at Within Bookstore. My eyes welled up and I thought about how much I miss my Mom. I decided to buy it for a dear friend who is a young Mother. Thank you Kelly Rae Roberts for creating such a beautiful and soulful piece of art.

National League of American Pen WomenI was recently invited to speak at the National League of American Pen Women which is an organization of professional women artists, composers, and writers, who are dedicated to serve their communities through mentoring, encouraging and promoting emerging professional women in the arts.It was a wonderful group of women and to my surprise and delight 2 of them graduated from my college, Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. We each represented a different decade from the 1950’s to the 1980’s. Thank you Cora Lee for inviting me.

The Dangers Of Glue

Glue On Photos

This is what happens to glue over the years. It turns brown and stains the surface of the photos, permanently damaging them, so please do not use glue on original photos.

The bottom photo was removed from an album. Unfortunately more damage may be caused by trying to remove photographs from older, historic albums than by leaving them intact.

If important or heirloom photographs must be attached in an album, use paper or plastic photo-corners.

I am so happy to hear that “Who Do You Think You Are?” is returning. This a great genealogy documentary series. Each week a celebrity goes on a journey to trace his or her family tree. You only dream that someday you will have the opportunity to do the same. It truly is inspiring.

“Who Do You Think You Are?” is scheduled to premiere on Tuesday, July 23, 2013 on TLC.

Florida State Genealogy Society Conference Photo Restoration

I set up a scanning station during the conference and offered free scanning with the option of having your scans restored. This is one of the photos that I restored during the conference. It was so fragile, crumbling at the edges. The biggest challenge was reconstructing his head. I am really happy with the way it came out.
