From Me To You

Take a moment and keep in touch through generations with this keepsake letter book. Brimming with personal prompts, this nostalgic set of 40 cards is meant to be sent and shared between grandparents and their grandchildren to create meaningful and lasting memories. Once completed, stow the letters in the secret pockets of the book so you can look back, remember your bond, and pass it down from generation to generation.

Artist Whitney Scott Biggs's life was turned upside-down when her mother died suddenly from cancer while Biggs was pregnant with her first child. Going through her mother's desk, she discovered scribbled lists, notes, and handwritten tidbits that became her treasured keepsakes. With her friends Sabra Miller and Janice Maples, she created these letter journals as a way for generations to connect and remember each other in a profound way.

Whitney Biggs

When faced with the untimely death of her mother to cancer, and then a bout with the disease herself, Whitney Biggs realized that her small children would grow up not knowing their grandmother or, possibly, even herself. Gathering the little notes and lists she found in her mother's desk, Biggs decided to make sure her young ones would have something to remember her by in the event of a tragedy, and that others everywhere could do the same.

Treasured Passages is a collection of letter books for people of all walks of life: mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and couples. They were created to fill a void when instant communication isn't possible, and to serve as treasured keepsakes to pass down through the generations. Biggs and her partners, Sabra Miller and Janice Maples, believe chronicled memories are the best gifts you can give your loved ones, and that saying "yes to life" and taking pleasure in the little things is the way to be. collection

              Comments about GRANDPARENT & GRANDCHILD LETTER BOOK SET:

              It includes plenty to complete the task, but is a bit cluttery for someone who is extraordinarily organized. My daughter is only five months old, so it will take awhile, as some things require responses from grandchildren.

                    The quality was very poor. I had to pay shipping both ways. It was especially not what I wanted to give a special friend as a gift.

                        This was a gift for my grandparents on Grandparent's Day! They are excited to create this book of memories that will eventually be left for me and my brother.

                          I received the book as a gift from my granddaughter for my birthday. She is 13 and in the book is a birthday page that she filled out and mailed to me along with the book. It has the most amazing questions like 3 qualities I love in you...you inspire me because...what I have learned from you. It was the best birthday card I have ever gotten and it came from this precious book! As a grandparent I am always looking for ways to stay involved in my grandchildren's life and this is such a unique way. Thank you UnCommon Goods for always finding the perfect gifts to give and receive!
