Once Upon a Time Creation: COVID-19 Update

Once Upon a Time Creation: COVID-19 Update

Hello friends,  Since Pennsylvania has shut down all non-essential businesses during the current health crises, our main studio remains closed. To keep things going, I am operating a scaled down studio from home until we are given the green light to open again. During this time, we are still taking orders. Memory Blanket will continue to be created during the shutdown, but other keepsake orders will be made after we open back up. These orders will be filled in the order they are received.  My focus right now is on senior Memory Blankets. My heart breaks for these young adults and all they...

Once Upon a Time Creation is Moving!

Once Upon a Time Creation is Moving!

Thank you all so much for your continued support of our custom keepsake creations! Because of our growing business, we need a bit more production space.  Although we have absolutely loved being in the carriage house for the past two years, it is time to move on. In an effort to stay close to our current location and gain more studio space, we are moving to Suite 219 of the Great Valley Center at the corner of Lancaster Avenue (Route 30) and Conestoga Road (Route 401).

When Kim and I met for the first time, she was so excited to learn something could be made from them to honor her Dad and enjoy these memories in her daily life. We started with pillows to proudly display his...

Theater T-shirt Memory Blankets

Theater T-shirt Memory Blankets

As our school's fall drama production approaches, I thought it would be fun to share some Memory Blankets created for those that love the theater.  These amazing blankets include t-shirts from summer stock, community theater, and school productions.  As summer stock usually produces shows according to age, performers are able to start their theater journey at a young age and grow with their summer family. School productions really kick off in middle school and continue through high school. For so many, Drama Guild is their favorite place to be. They have a great time and make friendships that will last a...
