AutoBooks are here

Forever released AutoBooks on Friday.  This is an easy and quick way to do a Photo Book.  You upload your photos, preferably to an album and then use the AutoBook feature.  The system will automatically place your photos into the book.  You can preview it and change layouts, as you like.  Add text to the bottom of pages or insert a full page of text where you like.  Truthfully, it’s meant to be super simple.  No embellishments, simple captions and it’s done.  I love this option for vacations, weekends away or events!  Take a look at this walkthrough video and let me know what you think.

Click here to see the video.

If you are new to Forever and create your free account here, you’ll receive a $15 coupon after you confirm your email.  This could be enough to make your first photo book free! (Depending on the size and cover you select).

If you are already a Forever customer, you can earn $15 coupons by referring your friends.

 

Staying Crafty While At Home This Month

I know that many have some extra time to fill while at home over the next few weeks.  Here’s some no (or low) cost crafty ideas that have come across my desk.  I’ll add to this list as I learn about more.  Feel free to add your ideas to the comments!

Creative Memories has started their own TV Channel – CMTV. 
By the way, if you wish to buy some CM stuff, please use my link here.  Thanks, in advance!

Every March there’s a free scrapbooking challenge called Calvinball based off the same named cartoon/book.  Although points are accrued, it’s still fun to join at any time of the month!  Click here for more info.

I’ve only recently discovered Brit+Co and their classes are free through the end of the month.  Here’s their info about that.  The catch is that you have to enjoy/view them by the end of the month as well.

I love my traveler’s notebook and I think Layle Koncar is one of the best.  She’s doing free classes the next two Saturdays and I hope to join in on these!  Click here for more info.

Digital Art to use on your layouts to document this unprecedented time.  Click the image for more information.

Streaming Video from your Forever Account

Did you know that you can store and stream videos from your Forever Account?  Today we’re taking more and more videos so it makes sense to ensure they last a lifetime in your Forever account.  Here are some more information about videos in your Forever account.  And keep reading to see a special holiday offer for today (12/24/19) only!

  • If you are a Forever Storage owner you can store videos in your account, just like pictures, audio files and important documents in pdf format.  There’s NO extra cost to do this.  To view your video(s) you will have to download them OR upgrade your Forever account to a streaming video account.
  • Why would I upgrade to a streaming video account?   This allows you to view (stream) the video in HD quality directly from your Forever account.  Additionally, when you share videos, recipients will be able to view (stream) them.  Whether or not they are Forever account holders.
  • How is this different from uploading my videos to other providers?  The #1 reason is to protect your Digital Rights.  Forever is committed to keeping your memories secure and allowing you to control what you do with them.   There’s many other technical reasons but I’ll let you see that on Forever’s Website here:  www.forever.com/video.

Without Video Plan

With Video Plan

We recommend the Premium (Streaming) Video Plan to everyone who wants to get the most out of their video memories by saving, sharing, and viewing them online. However, if your goal is simply to archive the original videos at FOREVER and watch them occasionally, you can do that without the Premium (Streaming) Video Plan. It’s your choice.

And TODAY ONLY (12/24/19) the lifetime Video Plan is 55% off – but for the first three people who purchase, I will also gift you a $100 Gift Certificate.

Click here to create your free Forever account and get an extra $10 off when you confirm your email.

Giving the Gift of Forever

Who do you know who would love to have the peace of mind of their memories saved safely and permanently?  Own your memory storage rather than renting from the other popular online vendors.  Check out this short video showing how to Give the Gift of Forever.

Capture Important Family Information This Holiday Season

“How do we remember a significant person in our lives when they are no longer with us? Who they were, what they held dear, what they thought, what they sounded like are all things we can capture while they are living and reflect back in appreciation that they live on with us …” says Lynn Lambrecht creator of The Living Planner.

It’s at this time of year, during the holidays of Thanksgiving and through the end of the year, when many spend time with family.  It’s time when we catch up with one another and have conversations – share stories.  For some of us (like me), it’s easy to keep track and record these memories through scrapbooking and uploading to my Forever account.  For most, the photos and videos are being taken and shared but then what?  And what about the important stuff?  You know, those harder ‘life’ questions?

Let’s consider some questions you can enjoy during Thanksgiving.  Feel free to use your phone to audio or video record answers.

  1. What is your favorite song  Tell us about it. *
  2. If you had one thing to “do over”, what would it be and why.  Tell us about it. *
  3. How do you wish to be remembered/eulogized?  Tell us about it. *
  4. What type of music do you enjoy?  Tell us about it. *
  5. What are some stories about your childhood/school/adolescence years you would like to share?  *

These are some examples that may be meaningful for family holiday and celebration, however remember, there are so many more questions to ask, including some that could be slightly difficult or challenging to answer.  I think that this is a super time of year to begin the process of documenting this information.  Capture these stories for all family members, of all ages.  Because now is when you’re with your family and these discussions never seem to happen. Planning for the unexpected can be awkward, I know. What if you had someone to help you prepare for disruption or loss? Planning to keep our photos and videos long-term is one thing, but everything else is another, right? Well, no, but it’s a start.

* Proprietary information The Living Planner © https://thelivingplanner.com

The Living Planner helps you understand what means what in plain language and create a plan for you moving forward.  It is easy to go about daily life without giving these difficult decisions/discussions a second thought. When it’s time to establish plans to protect what you’ve worked hard to build, where do you begin?

Those who know me, know that I take the chaos of photo mess and help calm it in EASY bite sized chunks. That’s exactly what Lynn does with The Living Planner.

SPECIAL OFFER:  Purchase (or upgrade) any single payment Forever Storage Account before December 1, 2019 and I will send you a copy of The Living Planner as my gift.  By the way, all single payment Forever Storage is 40% through 11/30/19!
