I'm working on a borrowed internet connection because the recent storms "killed" my mobile hotspot and I can't get a new one until at least Tuesday! You don't realize just how you depend on modern technology until you don't have it anymore!
Speaking of modern technology, today I want to share with you a great program! You've probably seen it around, but did you know that you can use it along with your quilting? The program is the My Memories Suite . Although it is called a Scrapbook Software program, that doesn't mean it can't also be useful for many other applications.
When people ask me what I do and I start telling them about my quilt pattern business, most of the time I can see their eyes glaze over as they search their memory banks for something to say in response. They usually say something like "Oh......my grandmother made quilts." That's when I pull out one of my scrapbooks and show them that my quilts are probably not anything like their grandmother's quilts. I even try to keep a very small scrapbook in my purse. Remember, "a picture is worth a thousand words!"
I have a giveaway today that will allow you to not only have large scrapbooks of your quilts, which is a great idea so that your descendants will know that these are too valuable to put in the doghouse, but will also allow you to make small ones that can be carried around in your purse.
But that's not the end of the story! You can make greeting cards, videos, blog banners, labels for your quilts, bound books for your children or grandchildren (think about how fun it would be to make a book with pictures of your projects along with your favorite recipes and family photos and have it bound so it can become a tangible gift for your family members!) I also made a few gift cards using photos of my quilts as part of the front design. How fun would it be to give a gift of a quilt and a gift card with a photo of that quilt on the front! Or how about a quilt label (printed on fabric) sweetly designed with photos of the recipient or even the quilt itself!
