I understand how important it is to make sure that life's journey has meaning and purpose. My goal is to support you throughout that journey and suggest projects that help you and your loved ones see a product of their legacy... your heART expressions.

Whether it is a special cookbook of your loved one's favorite dishes, a stepping stone to preserve that special hand print, organizing photos into a scrapbook, or creating an heirloom pillow or quillow, the support provided is designed to meet your goals and dreams. I can create this memory for you or I can arrange to meet with you so that you can take an active part in creating this special gift for your loved one.

heART Expressions...

a work of heART that provides a lasting legacy of love.

The following heART expression ideas are just that… ideas. I help you create highly personalized heirlooms and keepsakes that meet your needs. If you are looking for an heirloom not listed, please let me know and I’ll help make your vision a reality!

Photo Montage Video
Photo Montage Videos can add a special moment to any event. I have created videos for funerals, weddings, anniversaries, family reunions, graduations, retirement parties, and end-of-year performances. I use as many photos and video clips as you'd like and incorporate the recorded music of your choice to create a truly unique product for you and your family.

I pride myself on working with you every step of the way to create the video that you want.
HeART Songs
HeART songs are the beautiful combination of your heartbeat (or the heartbeat of your loved one) and a personalized song. The song will be recorded to the rhythm of the heartbeat, resulting in a one-of-a-kind product you can treasure forever.

Songs can be recorded by you, your loved one, or someone else in your family, or by myself.

I am highly trained in working with you throughout this process, discussing any emotions that may arise at any point.
Hand Casting
Allow our highly trained and caring team to make a casting of your loved one's hand as a memento that will last for years. Hand castings can be of one person or multiple people and can be mounted to a variety of pedestals.
Quilts, Quillows, & Pillows
I can use fabrics from your favorite clothes, old t-shirts, ties, or just about any other type of fabric to create heirloom quilts, quillows, and pillows. I can even take your favorite photos and print them onto fabric to make an extra-special quilt with your loved one's photo on it.

What is a quillow? It is a wonderful combination of a quilt and a pillow! Starting from a quilt, you are able to fold it in on itself and make it into a pillow. Then you reverse the process to get your quilt back.
Photo Display
A professional photo display can add a beautiful centerpiece to your event. I can help you select the best photos and mementos for your event and arrange them in a tasteful display. I can arrange for printing, mounting, and framing as well.
Paving Stones
Memory Paving Stones can be as intricate or as simple as you want. That is the beauty of them - each one is truly unique and displays the creativity and individuality of the person creating it. Paving Stones can be a fun project for children to be actively involved in as well. 

We can use store-bought pieces of cut glass to create stained glass-type pavers or incorporate special stones, marbles, dishes, or handprints to make a truly memorable paving stone.
Scrapbooks are a wonderful way to commemorate anything from small moments to once-in-a-lifetime events. I can help you get those photos out of your phone and computer and into a scrapbook along with descriptions of those memories, all arranged in a unique and beautiful pattern. 

Stop searching for your memories on your phone and let us help you make them concrete!
Silver flatware can have many memories attached to it - the good times spent around the table at Grandma's house, the deep conversations had while polishing it, the pride you felt when you finally got to sit at the "adult" table for Thanksgiving. I can take that flatware and transform it into a truly unique piece of jewelry for you to wear and be able to hold those memories with you for years to come.
Meals are one of the most memorable times for a family - after all, don't most parties end up with everyone in the kitchen? Most families have at least one "family favorite" recipe that shows up at every family gathering. Family Cookbooks can be a wonderful way to compile not only the recipes but the stories and photos that accompany the memories of family gatherings. Allow me to help you compile, organize, and format everything into a beautiful heirloom cookbook.
Time Capsules
Time Capsules are a unique way of sharing memories with future generations of your family and engaging in a different style of life review and reminiscence. I will work with you to create a highly personalized time capsule, including items that truly communicate who you are, and allow your family to have a beautiful keepsake for years to come.
