Greetings From The Heart - Newsletter, November 2020
You are the tie that binds.
By opening your Heirloom Vault, you have taken a huge step in carrying the torch for future generations. Your history and stories are important. By sharing them, you have become the tie that binds. Congratulations on being that important person in your family and for carrying on (or creating) a legacy!
If you have been organizing and purging during the recent quarantine because of the pandemic, you are not alone. Many people took advantage of the time on lockdown to clean out closets, attics and basements. Many found treasures that had been tucked away for years. What hidden gems did you uncover?
TIPS AND TRICKS
You can share your vault with family members (or trusted friends). They will be able to view, comment and favorite items in your vault. Simply click the “share” link located within your vault panel then enter the email address of the person you wish to share with. Once they have created their own Heirloom Vault account, your vault will appear in their grid under “Vaults Shared with Me.” Remember, you can always elect to hide certain items from shared vaults. This can be done by editing your item and checking the box “Keep item hidden from shared vaults.”
Photos, jewelry and rocks, oh my! Wait, rocks?

Start A New Holiday Tradition!
This holiday season, add a new fun activity to bring family members closer. Invite each guest to bring a family heirloom to share. Enjoy hearing and telling stories and reminiscing. It’s also a great way to learn new facts about your family’s history! I recently learned that my grandmother didn’t get her drivers license until the age of 60!
