Recently we heard from longtime listener and Premium eLearning member Linda in Sweden. She shared this creative conversation-starting centerpiece with us (see a link to her blog below for more pictures).
“My local genealogical society celebrated its 30-year old birthday last weekend with a nice dinner. On my to-do list was to make table placement cards for the board members. I wanted to do something more fun than an ordinary placement card.
I went to my local crafts shop and bought letters made of cardboard. I picked out letters which were the first letter in all board members’ names. Then I printed out scanned old photos of relatives I already had in my computer and glued them onto the letters. I also used some glitter glue to decorate and paper with nice patterns.
On the bottom, I wrote the date and the occasion and who the person in the picture was. I glued a tag with the board member’s name on it. It took a few hours to make nine of them. At the dinner, at my table, we had a conversation about my L- letter and my grandmothers’ uncle Voldemar Verno from Estonia who was on it. I have also posted those pictures on my blog, cousinlinda.blogspot.com.”
