Penn State Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

Creating your Memory Blanket

You have saved t-shirts, sweatshirts, jerseys, pjs, golf shirts and more for years.  Now you are ready to create your special gift. What next?

If you live in the Philly area, you bring your clothes to our studio and we go through all your things together to choose the gift that best fits your needs.  If you are mailing your clothes, we chat on the phone before beginning your project.  Click here for our contact information.

Then, the creative process begins…

We custom cut your memory blanket squares to maximize the size of your blanket and ensure your logos are nicely displayed.  Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

Have a shirt that is smaller than the rest?  Want to add a patch or small piece of clothing?  We appliqué your smaller items on to your blanket.Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

We can combine two, three, or even four pieces of clothing to create one fun square.  Some examples of items to combine:  a home and away jersey, the pants and shirt from an outfit or pjs, two shirts from the same place in different colors, or four chest logos.Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

We appliqué names and /or numbers from the back of your jersey onto the front to fully represent your team experience.Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

We back your blanket in a cozy, soft, high quality, pre-washed flannel in your choice of a variety of colors.  Your blanket will showcase a three inch border of your backing color.  This border creates a beautiful “frame” for your work of art.Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

You can choose the direction of your blanket.  Your logos can either face one direction (great for the twin and queen sizes), or face in different directions (the preferred display for the large throw blanket size).

Once Upon a Time Creation St. Paddy's Day

Slainte

Not sure about you, but celebrating St. Patrick’s Day has changed for us over the years from crazy all-day bar tours to enjoying “one” Guinness, a dinner of ham and cabbage, and listening to some good music.   This year, we were lucky to celebrate with family and friends.

On Saturday, my daughter had her first concert with her band and many of our family and friends came to support their efforts.  Afterward, they came back to our house for a little St. Paddy’s Day food and fun.

The whole day reminded me of what an amazing group of family and friends we are blessed with.   Most drove close to an hour to come see the concert, brought snacks to share afterward, and of course, provided lots of laughs!

St. Patrick's School

It takes a special group of people to support each other in times of hurt and disappointment, celebrate and take pride in each other’s victories, and call us out on the things we will probably regret:)

All relationships need time together, just for fun.  As our lives get busier, this is sometimes hard to remember.  This weekend was my reminder to nurture and treasure the people around us, make an effort to see people we miss, and just enjoy each other’s company.

Once Upon a Time Creation St. Paddy's Day

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day:

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life’s passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
