Creating Happy Memories

Our lives are complicated enough with day to day chores, absence of free time, and endless to do list. That is why we just have to make efforts on creating happy memories. Yes, happy memories require work! Have you noticed stumbling over pictures of people on Facebook you haven’t seen in years how happy they are? The hair looks shiny, kids are happy and smiles are adoring. For some “weird” reason, people only post their best pictures for public viewing. Have you ever seen anyone say, “let’s snap a picture of us arguing in the kitchen and post it on the Facebook?” or “Your eyes are closed on this photo and you have no makeup on, but I am posting it anyway” Hmm, I wonder why people don’t do it? :)

That brings me to the topic of this post. Once Upon a Family is a great store that helps you create the best memories – any occasion, any recipient,  any taste.

So many of my friends are expecting babies, and Once Upon a Family has the most precious gifts – handprints books, journals, keepsake boxes, and even a prettiest tooth fairy pillow.

I love the details of these products and the quality is amazing. There is a Tiny Treasure box for smallest happenings and a very generous size Keepsake box for just about anything else. What will you put in yours? I want to save every precious moment – hospital tag, pictures, outfits, tiny toys, baby shower cards, and more and more and more…. And now I have two amazing boxes that will accommodate all things – big and small.

For Mother’s Day or any other event in your life this website has perfect memorable gifts  – Family Recipe Album, Family Menu Planner or Family Fun Box and so much more. The album I received  has incredible vintage look. I really love the variety –  birthday gifts, graduation gifts, and the most unbelievable selection of genealogy products. I even found the most adorable “I Love You” pillow and there is just so much more to look at it…

I know we are busy today and you probably don’t have much time on scrapbooking, but just think about this – the memories you won’t save today, won’t be there tomorrow. The love we put into it – will stay there forever.

    I really need to get a box like that for my kids or all those precious treasures will be lost.

  3. A memory box is a great idea for keeping all those mementos organized. It seems like my friends and coworkers are having babies left and right, so I’ll keep this in mind for a baby shower gift.
