Ruth Sturdy, Founder of Colour Chronicles
I have two small children and I simply loved filling out their baby books, recording the first milestones and noting down adorable traits from the first year of their little lives. I actually felt sad when they came to an end wanting to carry on capturing their personalities and things they like and do. I found some delightful childhood record books which I loved filling out each year around their birthdays but when my daughter turned three, I thought it was a shame there was nowhere for her to have an input so I asked her a series of questions and jotted down the answers which were both adorable and hilarious. I looked for a book that had prompts for both the child and their grown up but couldn’t find one so decided to launch Colour Chronicles and make one of my own.
I teamed up with a fantastic designer and together we created The Book of You. It’s a beautiful book, designed to prompt positivity and affection which builds in to a lasting treasury to be looked back on and jog happy memories of childhood.
