    • Sole trader or Small business – Show and Tell – A book to document the growth of your business. You might be a sole trader, or a small business with one or 75 employees. This can be useful to plot the business growth and recognise its beginnings. How many of your staff know how your business was founded? Get their contributions too. Sole traders are often ‘head cook and bottle washer’ – why not document your achievements and how you got where you are. A Business Photo Book is much more personal for your customers or clients than a brochure. Use it as a visual resume.
    • Managing family businessA Family affair – For a family-run business it can be a great opportunity to have all ‘records’ in one place. Get all family members to contribute their stories and ideas as often we forget day-to-day decisions and events. Pool memories, photographs and other memorabilia relevant to your business.

Acknowledgement Album

Write_from_the_Heart Grief, Redundancy and Divorce – they all share a sense of loss.Whether it’s a loss through the passing of a loved one or a treasured pet who was part of the family, we often need to acknowledge their life and their meaning to us. Being made redundant can leave feelings of anger, resentment and confusion, masking the positive contribution that was made. And divorce leaves such a mine-field of emotions it can be hard to know where to separate them out.Loss often needs to be acknowledged some how – let me show you how you can find some order in the chaos, words that need to be expressed, and love that can be retained – if not for others then it must be there for ourselves. This is a powerful album that can help reclaim the ‘good’ without negating the ‘bad’.Albums come in all shapes and sizes, so you can pick the one that suits you most – from one that’s small and simple, to a medium easy-to-handle size, or a larger volume for many photos and stories. The choice is yours.

As a qualified horticulturist with a garden that I love seeing change through the years and seasons,  I’d be delighted to help you. A Gardening Album is a valuable testimony for  home gardeners, amateur and professional designers, landscapers and landscape designers alike.

The Book Of Me

Learn how to write with kindness and love, even about difficult times. And you get to add what you want – be selective, be all encompassing – the choice is yours.

“Julie Ross, Sydney, NSW – “I was overwhelmed with my photos after getting married and having 2 children, but Keran was able to help make sense of them all and she helped me find a starting and ending point for each album.  After learning how to ‘power sort’ I was able to get my many photos into order and then into albums.  Keran was also able to give me pointers on how to write my thoughts down about the photos.  I now have some wonderful albums that my kids just love to look at.”.
Jennifer Bennett, Cromer NSW – I found Keran such a great help with my album layouts and colours, and how to journal. I think she’s a natural because of her background in working in magazines. She helps and encourages me so I can’t wait to complete my albums.
