Line from Lisa
Happy New Year! I am so excited for 2023 and have so many things to share with you – so bear with me and please keep reading. And by the way, if you don’t want to hear from me, it’s ok – just unsubscribe. I really don’t want to fill your inbox. I want to help and serve those that need and want my services and products and provide information that you find valuable.
So let’s start with my new website that’s been updated to provide you with more resources and I’ve also added a blog – I hope you’ll subscribe as I’ll be bringing you tips and tricks for organizing your photos along with other valuable information I think you’ll enjoy. You can also check my website out at www.photosolutionsforever.com and you will find my events, videos, the blog, and more! Another resource where you can find what might be an overwhelming amount of resources is here – just explore by clicking on the albums and you will find some treasures I’m sure!
Second opportunity I’m offering my clients in 2023 is to share me with your friends. I have a quick presentation to help them get started with their photo organization project and you earn $20 towards the product for each new person you introduce along with some other gifts and rewards. Each of your friends will also receive a $20 gift certificate and a 2GB account and more from me! I can do this either in person or virtually. I promise you they will thank you for sharing with them, especially before they have to deal with a photo disaster. They won’t be saying, “Why didn’t you tell me about this sooner?” Click here to schedule a time that works for you and your friends. My last client received over $180 for simply sharing me with her friends. Want to give it a try?
Third, I now have a scanning station set up in my studio where I can do your photo and flatbed scanning up to 8×10’s. If you have items you would like scanned, reach out to me and I’ll be glad to get you a quote.
Lastly, my complete schedule is out for events in 2023. You can attend these events virtually or in person, just register and I’ll get you all the information. The Studio and Workshop days are for those working on organizing in their storage accounts or working on projects. I’m here to give you guidance and support and more importantly it’s a great community to enjoy while having that time set aside each month to see the progress on your project. I even have a few spaces left on my 2023 Crop and Cruise on February 16 – 20th on Celebrity Summit. I’d love for you to join in the fun and ports are Nassau and Key West with a full day of digital scrapbooking during our day at sea.
I look forward to connecting with each of you in 2023!
Congratulations to Jeanette Bagrosky, client of the month! She has won a $25 FOREVER gift certificate. Jeanette is a Tulsa area realtor with Coldwell Banker and not only digitized her family’s video collection but also uses our cards and new Address Book feature to easily communicate with her clients. This is what Jeanette had to share on her Google Review:
Lisa has been amazing to work with! I am a realtor in the Tulsa Metro area and usually have a full schedule and am short on time. Lisa, very efficiently, has helped me get mass mailings out, create holiday cards, and recently, she helped me convert 150+ old home movie reels, vhs tapes, camcorder tapes, etc for a Christmas gift for my elderly parents. They were elated! It never would have happened without Lisa! Her customer service is unbeatable and she made all of the above tasks fun! Once you work with Lisa once, she will be your one and only go-to in the future…guaranteed!
I appreciate any and all Google Reviews and I’d appreciate it if you would add yours at Google Review
Make note and check out all events here. Most all events are virtual and many are both in person if you live close to me or virtually if not. I can help you easily with my Virtual Venue screen share on my website if you’re not comfortable with Zoom. It’s a simple click and you can join in the fun!

FAMILY HISTORY – Tell Your Family Story
I have been going through piles of paperwork and old photos that have been passed on to me as our family historian and it can be overwhelming at times to be honest. I want to get my own family photos all organized and albums completed. But I know if I don’t take a few minutes each month and tell the stories I have been told and record with the scanned photos these may be lost forever. As I began working on my family history I came to some roadblocks and so I reached out to the Family Research Services and hired them to help. It was amazing the work they did and helped me to find the people I knew nothing about. I was encouraged to do my DNA and I did that and it opened up a whole new world! A word of caution here, be prepared for what you may find out. Yes, I was surprised, but I am loving the sleuthing and surprises that lie around the corner.
If you’re not sure where to start, you can start with a one hour consultation and they can let you know how they can help you. I have been working with them for over 6 months and they have verified many records and found many people that I would have never known about. I was actually working on the wrong tree and so they helped me turn around and not waste my time. Who knew? So check it out HERE.
Another thing I think all family historians, genealogists, and family storytellers should check out is the free virtual Family History Event on February 25th at 12 – 3 pm ET. The event is free and will be recorded if you’re not able to attend live you will receive the recording. You will need to register HERE to receive the virtual information and/or recording. It will be our 3rd annual event and I always love what I learn to help me in preserving my stories. Won’t you join me?
