I spent Mother's Day afternoon again trying my hand at building a video. Here is another attempt. I have so much to learn, but I promised myself this would be the year I mastered some of the programs I am so fortunate to own.

Here for your enjoyment are a few Mother's from another time. Caution to those who are at work. A music box plays in the video.

Photographs of Mother's of Old.

Absolutely Fabulous! I loved the photo's! Nice job. May I ask what software you used?
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Karen - I used Keynote for the original set-up, exported as individual jpegs to iMovie and then to Quicktime with an upload to Vimeo.

I just love Keynote for design. I don't like prepared templates. This sort of worked, but I'm determined to make iMovie work for me. I just haven't seen the design potential there, but I may be wrong. I let you know as I master the darn thing.

And thanks for the encouragement!

What a sweet video! And the music box is perfect accompaniment.

Kimberly -

For me the most difficult part is getting the right music, so thank you for saying it was perfect.

I auditioned three different songs and this reminded me of a music box on the night stand playing as Mother tucked you in. Glad it worked!
