Workshop for Families-Creating Love Memorials™ in Greensboro, N.C.

Are pictures sitting in a box with journals, recipes, or other handwritten memorabilia of loved ones passed? Bring your keepsakes to create beautiful works of art with your own hands, where no experience is necessary and all supplies are complementary.

 Just a Cloud Away, Inc. ™ Journal and other local organizations are sponsoring the first Creating Love Memorials™ Workshop for families. Feel free to bring any 2 dimensional papers, fabric or tags to incorporate, whether from a loved one or beloved pet. Professionals will be on site in the craft area to assist children in creating paper keepsakes.

Adults will have the opportunity to design an awareness ribbon for the cause of their choice. Below is a ribbon for a Grandmother with Alzheimer’s Disease.

A Love Memorial™ is a keepsake or sympathy gift, going beyond the typical cards, flowers or food. It is a thoughtful creation showing compassion for each specific situation. Many samples will be provided, including; pressed flowers, metal, jewelry, scrapbooking, woodwork, decoupage, gardens, stone, glass, photography and photo montages. Community resources will provide literature on babysitting classes, support forums, alternative funeral options and more. Also joining us are local animal rescue groups with adoptable pets. Our fire and police departments will share safety tips.  After school food and beverages will be served. Energy work sessions will be offered, and music performed by Jennifer Cockman during the workshop.

Child abductions, burglary, arson and other horrific events sometimes revolve around the one place families should feel the safest, your home.

If these life altering events could be prevented, would you seek the necessary means to do so? Some thoughts come to mind:

I recently met with Todd Anderson, a consultant for Power Home Technologies Security Systems living in the Piedmont Triad Area. He explained the different products offered by his company, ensuring family safety. He also noted the systems are VERY user friendly and simple to operate.

A few appealing features that caught my attention  was the fact of being a  local business and they do not subcontract installation. Another great point was the $10,000 donation to the United Way of Greater Greensboro in 2009.

Todd proudly wears the Power home Technology emblem and strives to help people any way possible. He knows from recently loosing his Father  from a stroke that dialing 911 may not be enough. Todd stated there is an automatic 45 second delay when dialing 911, where as his company is disbatched right away.

Todd Anderson is a loving husband, father, and son, also owning 2 rescue dogs. He loves the country but a city boy at heart. Some organizations Todd is affiliated with are:

Todd is passionate about:

  • Helping a Veteran (Todd is a Gulf War Veteran)
  • Giving Blood to the Red Cross
  • Basketball and Football
  • Reading Motivational Books
  • Playing Golf

“We Keep Bad Things Happening To Good People” is the motto.

Thank you for your time Todd and I will need more Free DNA Identification Kits for additional schools.

 Peace Love and Hugs
