The Illustory - Best Gift for Children (from Creations by You)
Great Gift for Future Artist, Author and Illustrator
Are you looking for a gift that will last forever? That will create memories for your child? How about giving your little writer something that he/she can keep and cherish the rest of his/her life? A gift that will create memories and will build your child's confidence. What if that gift is something that could be published? Illustory from "Creations by You" is the answer. When our child was very little, she loved having a notebook and a pen. She enjoys scribbling, writing and drawing things. My daughter always wanted to draw tiny people, things and places . She wrote stories of princess, super heroes, imaginary friend, and many others. Few years ago, when she was around 7 years old; our family decided to have Christmas at our home for the first time. It has always been at my sister-in-law's home. My daughter was so excited of the idea and very much anticipated the joy of being around family; she decided on writing a story about the occasion. Indeed, we had the best Christmas ever in our home. That joyous gathering was on her young mind and she could not stop thinking about it - she composed a story about our first Christmas at home.
We were looking for a writing pad and a nice notebook that she can transfer her story. We came across this very creative tool, the Illustory by "Creations by You." This is very good for children who love to draw and make stories at the same time. My child was so thrilled thinking that her work will be published. She always talked about having her own book published and being read by kids in the library. To her, this is a dream come true. (We still have the book, did not reach the library yet. LOL!)

The Finished Product
My child was so proud having her book published - she's been showing them to her grandma, aunts, uncles, and cousins. She dedicated the book to: Mom and Dad and to the rest of the family. It has been few years since her book was "published," and has been a part of our Christmas gatherings; thanks to "Creations by You." Her book made us remember that first Christmas party at our home. It would be a bitter sweet reminishing this year though - one of our special guests that year, our dear grandma Chick left us on Memorial day, she was 93 years old. Our daughter misses her very much. My family lives in the Philippines and grandma Chick was the only grandma she had here. It was a blessing that my daughter made this book before grandma passed away. We will always remember her every time we open my daughter's book.
Illustory was one of the greatest gifts our child had. I am sure that every family have their own little artists and story tellers, Illustory is a great tool for them. Remember that their work will be" published" too! Have a great day!
