How To Get Organized – Collectibles, Old Photos, Family History – A Short Video To Make You Smile

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Organizing collectibles, old photos, boxes of old letters and documents, old books from loved ones past on can be a daunting and mind spinning experience. Where do you start? What is your goal? Well, those aren’t reallythe right questions to ask.

One of my great pleasures since 1978 has been to work on the enormously popular and historical items within the collection of the Historical Department of the LDS Church. One of the oral history researchers from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (The Mormons) was in my lab this week interviewing me about the art conservation and restoration work I’ve done for the history department of the Church History Museum over the decades. We discussed my book, How To Save Your Stuff (see product section of this website in scroll on left) and Ann Marie thought you would be interested, as she was, in this quick tip about how to avoid confusion when getting organized…and how to eat more ice cream!  The video is less than 2 minutes.

Scrapbook, photo album, memories, family history

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010


What do you have that really has meaning and shows the quality of your business or great moments in personal or family life? Last weekend, my nephew got married to a really great girl. We are thrilled to have her in our family. Their story of how they met, how they romanced each other and how the proposal went was sooo cute and it was all illustrated in a scrapbook next to the sign in book at the reception. Everyone got a kick out of looking through it. What a priceless piece of family history that was JUST created! I would be heart sick to know that because of moving 13 times like newlyweds do or because of some other casual forgetfulness that this scrapbook of memories was to be lost… and these aren’t even MY kids. My sister gets the message though. I wrote her with this suggestion.


What about 1st Edition Revisions of your book?

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

Thanks Scott. I’ve had a little time to go through your e-book. What are your plans for updating Chapter 3 to include items such as USB drives, external hard drives, etc. – items that most people work with today? Do you have an upcoming revised edition in the works? If so, when would the revised e-book be available? I’d like to sell your e-book via our website, but don’t want to sell it if a revised edition is to be released soon. Please let me know when it will be available, and we’ll go from there.
