On my last post I wrote about a Sunday afternoon framing family photos.

When looking at many of the photos, I wished I knew more about each one.

How old, what year, where, was it a special occasion?  Just so much I will never know or remember, including photos of my own son.

I thought of an idea for a new product, “Photo Memory Notes”.

A pack of sticky notes that can be filled out and placed on the back of our favorite photo prints.  The size would fit the normal current day photo prints, 4″ x 6″.

What a really thoughtful, lovely gift, to leave our loved ones, small stories about old photos.

When going through my box of old photos, there were only three with written information on the back, those were ones my Mom had left.

I love the fact that I know our ages on this favorite old photo of me and my sister.

I was two and my sister three, so cute!

On this photo Mom wrote that this was the last photo of her and Dad before he went overseas.  Dad is in his uniform.  How special!

The planner, journal, lettering industry is huge right now, millions of dollars.

Many folks love keeping notes, writing, drawing, even coloring right now, including me!

You could make the argument that you could just use plain sticky notes, but no, not to many of us, special is what we look for!

There is a stack of memory notes on my desk right now!

When I have quiet time I am enjoying writing memories.  A gift to my son and family years down the road.

The notes can remain on the back when framing too!

I have sent my idea to several companies including Scotch, Michael’s, and Hobby Lobby.

Let’s see what happens!

Failing doesn’t upset me, how can you expect success if you don’t try.

Several years ago, I applied for a provisional patent on a product I thought would be profitable.  Sent my idea to a few companies, only to see my idea on the website of one of the companies later.

There was a note on the product with a patent #, I checked it out, it was basically the same idea as mine only several years earlier.

At least I knew my idea wasn’t silly!

I will keep you all posted if I receive any response to my sweet idea.

Keep trying, never give up!  That’s me!

Love and blessings to all!

  1. What a good idea sister You are so right about not knowing even in some instances who is in the picture and how old they were when taken . Almost always Mom and Aunt Wanda were so good about writing on the back of photos even dates. Guess we didn’t inherit that trait. Love ya and good luck with your latest idea hope some of those companies see what a great idea it would be.
