This blog will help you turn memories into meaningful stories for your family. We will sample three techniques to show how to take life experiences and create a memoir to record these events. By the end of this session, we will have drafted an introduction and outline to help them produce personal stories cherished by your family for generations to come.

Happy Thanksgiving! How time flies; it seems like just yesterday it was July, and we were excited over Love, Shirley Temple. This weekend, another auction takes place by Theriault's that features Shirley memorabilia of all kinds of things. I particularly love her charm bracelets; look for posts on them and the vinyl Shirleys being auctioned. I hope you take out your pilgrim statues, wax candle dolls, dried apple heads and corn husk dolls to celebrate this uniquely American holiday. On my Doll Museum blog, I featured photos of French dolls, in honor of those who died and were hurt last Friday in Paris. More French doll posts to follow on About, with one vintage post below. Happy Collecting!
Collecting dolls teaches management and other marketable skills. Just think of the creativity, passion, social media skills, historical knowledge, organization and multitasking involved in caring for a doll collection!
Thanksgiving is almost here, and I always like to review and study the Native American Dolls in my collection. Just last Tuesday, we talked about it in my diversity class for law enforcement. Storyteller's are special dolls, true art figures, memorialized in this wonderful book.
