Painting Our Lives With Memories
April 24, 2014 | By Stephanie Lashley |
Why are Memories Important?
Life’s memories are important. They carve our souls; they mold our lives. They serve as a reminder of our past, a snap shot in time long after the original moment has passed. These reminders, whether captured in photographs, video or quotes, help to bring us back to the original moment in time, evoking emotions associated with that memory. A memory is a way of holding onto things we love, the things we are, the things we never want to lose and shape us into the people we are intended to be. Things end but memories last forever.
Momentos of the Past
Photos, videos and quotes help us recall moments from the past. Whether you’re capturing memories using old school techniques and storing them in shoeboxes or using modern day apps like Instagram and Facebook, memory capture is an important part of life. But paper photographs fade or are easily damaged. Social networking apps like Instagram and Facebook are great but memories shared on these platforms get lost in the noise.
Capturing Memories Forever
We know memories are important and we want to help our users capture and keep these memories forever. This is the reason we created the LittleHoots mobile application. The mobile application, which launches on May 6th, will help users capture memories in a beautiful and meaningful way. It also allows memories to be stored forever. From the focus groups we’ve conducted, we know that storage tops the list of importance for users of a memory keeping application. And our application will include unlimited storage upon launch. In addition to storage, we’ve created the ability for users to easily drop their memories into designer “Memory Tiles.” Memory Tiles will allow users to capture those important moments and turn them into HallmarkTM quality works of art that can be framed. And we know they are Hallmark quality because Eric Disney, HallmarkTM illustrator with 36 years of experience, is a member of the LittleHoots team.
“..in the end, all that really matters isn’t the things you did, but what its effects are today, not the knowledge you have learned, but how you applied it, not the words that were said, but how they made you feel, and most of all, not the moment of occurrence, but how its now just a part of our memory.. Everyday, we make memories.. Let’s paint our lives with happy ones…” — Anonymous
