My grandma, aka: “Charlotte the Great“, is one of my favorite people. She watched me as a baby. I lived with her during high school and through the years she has become my best girlfriend. She is 84 and amazes me.
This week I shared with her My Love Book, a new and creative way to show how much someone means to you. It was a fun process! The entire book is created by you–select the cover, the questions you want to answer and fill in with your own memories and messages. Once you’re done, MyLoveBook.com turns your thoughts and message into a beautiful hardbound book.
This is more intimate than a card and it’s not just for romance. I gave my grandma one and filled it with my favorite memories we’ve shared together. It would be a wonderful gift for a friend, a co-worker, a sister, mother–anyone who you have shared a life moment with and want to remember.
I selected a coral colored cover stamped with gold flowers. It was perfect for the joy I captured in the book for Charlotte the Great. There are two other covers to choose from depending on the person and occasion.
I really loved creating this book. It was tremendous to be prompted with questions and then be able to convey in my own words the meaning of that thought to time spent with my grandmother.
The book starts with a dedication page:
Then guides you through questions. Some are multiple choice, some have short answers and some have longer answers.
