Introducing Artifcts

Got ‘stuff?’ We all do. Some of it is really important or valuable. We know it by looking at it. Other stuff is important, but no one would know unless we told them. At some point, as you move, redecorate, or update your insurance policy or estate plan, you have to ask yourself, “Why do I have this thing?” If you don’t ask yourself, and you don’t tell anyone, all the seemingly insignificant details, all that history that represents you could be lost or forgotten.

Organize the stories you’ve uncovered and let the ‘stuff’ around your own home support you along the way.
