So, just how did I come to open Esther's Place on Etsy?
Fast forward to the present.
Two things happened in recent years:
- I fell in love with genealogy.
- I became the recipient of many family photos, letters, postcards from the generations past.
Making coasters with my ancestors' images just seemed logical (and fun!). Oh the conversations that were sparked when family saw what I was working on. From there the ideas just kept coming: necklaces, scrabble tile ornaments on mini Christmas trees, wine glass charms....
I wanted to help others discover and share their ancestors, too. That's how Esther's Place came to be on Etsy. [My shop is named for my paternal great grandmother Esther Richardson Talbott.]
Are you ready to get your ancestors out of that shoebox? Need a few ideas to get your started? Leave a comment. I'd love to chat.
