Creative Ways to Document Memories

Do you ever wish you could just close your eyes and take a mental picture that would last forever? Looking at my little toddler and newborn, I can’t tell you how many times a day I wish that I could just hit the “pause” button and savor every smile and laugh. From special occasions to precious everyday moments, make them last with these creative ways to document memories.

Creative Ways to Document Memories

Collect Keys: Save keys from monumental life events – first car, first home, key to honeymoon suite, etc. Keep them together on a special key ring.

Make a T-shirt Quilt: Gather t-shirts that depict special life events: vacations, high school graduations, college teams, etc. Sew them into a quilt.

Compile a Book: One of my very favorite gifts that I gave to my husband was a book of “Our Story”. I complied journal entries and pictures into a book that told the story of how we met and fell in love. You could also create a book for the birth of a child, vacations, your career journey, etc.

Make a Memory Jar: Keep a jar with blank pieces of paper in a central location at your house. Encourage family members to write daily memories on the paper and put it in the jar. This could include funny things your kids say, fun family activities, daily blessings, etc. This jar will become a family treasure for years to come.

Take Daily Pictures: Keep your cell phone or camera handy and be sure to snap pictures of precious every day moments. Be sure to print and share these photos with family and friends.

Here to help share your precious life moments, XFINITY allows you view these memories on a bigger screen through their X1 Entertainment Operating System. Simply download the XFINITY app, and use your cell phone to share live streams and photos on the television with your family and loved ones.

Living away from family, XFINITY is the perfect app to be able to share our daily lives, through photos and film, with grandparents, aunt, and uncles.

After-all, I don’t want grandma and grandpa to miss out on my son’s daily outfit choices.

I love imperfect picture - those are the ones with the story behind it. As long as it doesn't come back to hunt me

I love these ideas. I will have to make a t shirt quilt. I love to put up pictures all over the house of memorable events.
