FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Conway, SC) Psychology Today reports memories make the individual. Past events remain in long-term memory, also referred to as semantic or episodic memory. Unfortunately, these memories are malleable and have a tendency to decay as a person gets older. With the help of photo keepsakes, a person can help to keep these memories alive not only for their own personal pleasure, but for generations to come. Regardless of which photo a person wishes to save, The Memories Place ( can transform it into a blanket, pillow, bag or tote to be treasured.
“Pictures allow us to remember the past while celebrating the present. Future generations use photos to learn about the past and the journey their ancestors took, and phones with cameras now make it easier than ever to capture special times. With our help, an important moment in a person’s life can be transformed from a picture into a magnificent piece of art,” John Lercari, spokesperson for The Memories Place (www.thememoriesplace.com), announces.
Attentional saturation is one reason people may forget details when they see the same thing repeatedly. This constant exposure leads the brain to believe the details aren’t of importance. Individuals see a penny regularly, yet can’t provide a great deal of information regarding what is found on the penny. The same thing may be true of memories. The large details are remembered, yet the person can’t recall the smaller ones.
“With a photo, every detail is captured on film, and we turn these details into a photo keepsake. A person can look at the blanket or throw and see exactly what flowers a bride was holding or what bow a child was wearing in their hair on their first birthday. This may help them to recall other details of the event, even those that aren’t included in the picture,” Lercari continues.
With the help of a photo keepsake, people can create an item they love and want to share with others. A person chooses the size of the blanket or other item, adds any desired text and uploads the photo. Master weavers then begin the work of turning this photo into a keepsake, one that will be cherished for years to come.
“Don’t let a cherished photo hide away in a book or shoe box. Turn it into a bag, blanket or pillow that can be proudly displayed in the home. These items are so amazing you may find you want to create a number of keepsakes. We will be happy to help, whether you have one photo or 50 you wish to use in this manner,” Lercari states.
