When my grandfather died back in 2003, I remember going through some of his things and finding trinket after trinket. I knew that he had kept these things for a reason, and that there was probably great significance behind each piece……but I’d never know. This weekend, start documenting some of your keepsakes in your journal, and why they are special to you.
And while you’re at it….write your name and phone number in the front cover of your journal….in case you ever lose it.
Below is a page that I made with some jewelry that my aunt gave me. It was my grandmother Marge’s. One of the pieces on the charm bracelet is an antique typewriter eraser…..an object of the past, right? My grandmother was in secretarial school so that charm must have been to signify that. One of the charms is also a cigarette lighter……smoking was once cool you know…..
I sketched them with my left hand so that I wouldn’t spend too much time trying to make them perfect. If you don’t want to draw or sketch these items, just photocopy them and use that image.
