Cheer Memory T-shirt Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

Cheer Memory Blankets

Cheer Memories

Have you ever watched a cheer competition? Anyone who questions whether cheer is a sport is just crazy. The strength, tumbling ability, and coordination these teams display is unreal.

The girls and guys who cheer combine stage presence, athleticism, and timing to create routines that are truly extraordinary. There are flyers (the ones who get thrown in the air) and bases/backs (the ones who do the throwing). There are extensions, cradles, and basket tosses. (Here is a link to a glossary to help you with the translate: Cheer Lingo)

Cheerleaders are fierce competitors who work hard to perfect all the nuances of a routine. Dance classes, tumbling and gymnastics training, and hours of synchronized practice all help the team bring it to the next level.

Cheerleaders support the other sports at their school or in their community league and then compete in their own competitions against other squads. They do it all with a smile on their face and a bounce in their step because they LOVE it!

If you have never watched a cheer routine, next time you are on YouTube, give it a search. You will be amazed. (And probably happy you are not the mom of the flyer, that can be tough on the nerves!)

To all the cheerleaders out there working your butts off…keep up the hustle, you are killin’ it!!!

In the words of our favorite cheer coach, Coach Kirsten, “Dream It, Believe It, Achieve It!”

Remembrance Keepsake Loveys for Organize 365

Did you ever want to do a project but got stuck because you didn’t know who could help you bring your vision into reality? Lisa Woodruff from Organize 365 has encouraged her clients for years to transform their sentimental clothing into a memory blanket, pillow, stuffed animal, or remembrance keepsake but she didn’t know where to send them to have that done. Now she does!

We are so grateful for our partnership with Lisa and especially thankful for her podcast featuring all the keepsakes created by Once Upon a Time Creation. She beautifully captures the essence of our service. If you would like to listen, here is the link:


Lisa also commissioned us to create keepsakes to honor her grandmother. Her grandmother had impeccable taste in clothes and Lisa saved a few pieces that are special to her and her family. These sunny yellow sweaters and pants make you smile just to look at them!

Her goal was to create meaningful keepsakes for her Mom and Aunt to celebrate the memory of their Mom. These Doll Loveys are so sweet in their cheery yellow with beautiful flowers and adorable bees. We hope that when they are held and looked upon, they bring back happy memories and carry a feeling of peace and love.
