Welcome to week two of our Designer’s Challenge . . . Heritage style! If this is your first stop here, you can scroll down to last weeks post for all the juicy details. If you were asleep last week and missed the beginning of the fun, we’ll give you a one-week pass to jump on board and catch up!
This week we are focusing on the “growing up” years—either yours or a loved ones’. I grew up in the 1980’s, the decade of side-ponytails, leg warmers, boom boxes and cassette tapes. Back then everyone walked or rode the bus to school, ate Velveeta cheese without guilt and played Rubik’s Cube for fun. Do you ever wonder what is was like growing up before electricity was invented, before it was socially acceptable for women to wear jeans or when you had to actually milk a cow to get your milk?
Stop by the store to pick up your item that you will be challenged to use along with a list of questions to get you started. Remember to bring in your heirloom layout from last week to receive your point—and because really, we just want to see it!
I am participating in this challenge with you and I documented by grandmother’s growing up years (she had a twin) by interviewing her before she died.
I’ve included a list of questions with your kit to get you started, but if you want 50 more interview questions for the person you are interviewing, check out this great website:
Have fun and we can’t wait to see your pages! Call us if you have any questions.
