DearMYRTLE's personal project for 2021 is 52 THINGS

From a list of over 100 ancestral artifacts I've inherited, I'll craft a mini-journal to tell the story of the item and the ancestor I've inherited it from. One each week this year. Then, while Mr. Myrt is watching his wood crafting shows on Saturday mornings, I'll create a video.
My daughter Stacey has been begging me for years to make videos to identify who these cool things belong to.

The video is an important element, as my children and grandchildren cannot come to explore the old steamer stunk because of the Covid-19 guidelines for isolation. So the video each will will show the heirloom and explore the story by opening the journal as if they were here in person.

The LRHG said she “loves this!” And that she’s glad I don’t check out her ears! THAT’S what I want — reactions from the grandchildren to these precious ancestral anecdotes and artifacts. 🤗
  • After viewing this video, my 16 year old grandson Tannon texted saying "I can hardly wait till Covid is over so I can come and explore the old steamer trunk!"

What People Are Saying
