What we're about

2020 April update: These days most of my gatherings are on ZOOM. Please contact me directly to receive information about events. My schedule of meeting is generally T&Th 9-4 general consulting & tech support, Sun 1-5 Personal & Family History, Fifth Friday Photo Frenzy 9a-9p a day dedicated to rescuing, converting, sorting, organizing, and sharing memories,...and others by appointment and request. I still hold the Tues eve PHOTO AFFAIR, for now on zoom but hoping to resume in-person in June. Many of the workshops have been without charge, but I am not sure how much longer I can offer that. Text me at 801-885-3121 to request a current schedule or to reserve your seat.

Let's get together and make memorabilia.
Join us if you are interested in documenting a story and preserving it for the future.

If you want to convert outdated media, reproduce rare heirloom photos, caption digital images, share securely, preserve for generations, personalize greeting cards, invitations, announcements, photo gifts, wall art, organize photos, print photo books, create a journal, stamp, create greeting cards, create video stories, write your family's story, create a family yearbook, record a family reunion,…

Media includes photos and videos, traditional scrapbooking, digital photobook publishing, video, wall art canvases, digital wall art, or just about anything else you want to use to express yourself.

Book a MEMORANDA meetup for your family, commemorative event, organization or other gathering. Andi is available as a trainer and coach and will travel.

Whether you prefer to trim printed photos or create digitally this is the workshop for you. Create a book such as a Creative Memories scrapbook or a printed photobook or go beyond to gallery-worthy wall art. Make handmade greeting cards using various cutters and punches, stamps and glitter. Learn calligraphy or how to color-wash your album pages. Use studio tools and supplies to avoid the cost of purchasing materials you will only use once. Discover new tools or share your experience with the group. These workshops are better than therapy and much more affordable. Over the past 30 years I have seen the beginning of many life-long friendships. Friendships forged while sharing your most cherished memories are bound to become special. Book a reoccurring date for your group and keep your event private or open it to newcomers. Some groups who have held long-running gatherings in the past include Military Spouses, DAR, Mothers of Multiples, graduating classmates who vow to stay close, sorority & fraternity alumni, family groups, bereavement groups, business associates, service organizations, church groups, recovering addicts, neighborhood associations, a dance company,...and an endless array of various individuals who are bonding and healing through preserving their stories. Depending on the venue, the number of participants, duration, and the amenities offered, workshop prices can range from $5 - $100. Workshops may be canceled for lack of participation. Register at least two days ahead to ensure the session stays active. Register one week to one month ahead to be sure to have a space on some of the more popular days. i.e. If you want to commit to every second Thursday, be sure to book a couple months in advance. Payment is not charged until 24-48 hours before each session when scheduling in advance for a regular slot.

PHOTO AFFAIR

Online event

$40.00

Fall in love with your photos again. Create a photo work of art while learning about the care and keeping of your digital images. Your creation will be shipped directly to your home in 5-10 days (usually 2-3 days). You will need to bring your smart phone, tablet, or laptop and enough digital photos for the chosen project. Each event features a different project--choose from a wide selection of quality media--gallery wrap canvas, acrylic prints, metal prints, photo books, greeting cards, mug, ornaments... (details upon RSVP) A PHOTO AFFAIR is similar to those nights where you paint a picture you don't really want...and since you are not an artist you are not particularly anxious to hang the finished piece in your home let alone set it out at the next yard sale...except much more satisfying. At a PHOTO AFFAIR, you gather (virtually) with friends and enjoy a night out (night IN, on zoom) while you create something that has been the desire of your heart...using professional tools that ensure professional-quality results. Come back again and again to create more heirloom treasures for yourself or create gifts for friends and family that you know they will cherish. Schedule a private event for your next milestone. Private gatherings for a family reunion, graduation, bridal shower, retirement party, or birthday for any age are naturally enhanced by the sharing of memories and collaboration to create keepsakes. Share photos and create a project to turn moments into memories, honoring the past to enhance the future. Registration fee is determined by the project presented at each particular event. The cost of a Canvas print or a Photo Book may vary depending on the size chosen in which case the participant will pay an additional upgrade fee when the project is submitted. Multiple printings are also available to purchase.
