10 Holiday Cards Guaranteed to Make You Smile

By on December 25, 2015 in Memories

In days of instant communication and 24/7 social media updates, there’s something extra special about receiving letters and cards via snail mail. The holiday card is a tradition over 150 years strong, and sending one out is a great excuse to get your family together for a special photo each year.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite cards from around the Internet- from the incredibly creative to the insanely adorable, check out how other families spread holiday cheer:

Who knew Game of Thrones could be made family-friendly? Kelly Clarkson’s husband, Brandon Blackstock, has Scottish heritage, so the family got to dress up and celebrate their background and their love for the popular HBO drama.

It turns out Halloween isn’t the only time of year people get an excuse to put their kids in adorable costume. We’re glad, because this little snowman is melting our hearts.

Creating this photo for their 2007 holiday card took Tracy Sigler and Mary Earle-Sigler, “two days, three separate shooting sessions, and more wardrobe changes than a Cher concert.”

 

7. The “My dogs are my kids” card

Even the biggest Scrooge wouldn’t be able to hold back a smile for these festive golden retrievers. Even better, it’s easy to recreate yourself (if your dogs are feeling cooperative!)
6. The “Keeping it Real” Card- Toddler Edition

Australian politician Andrew Leigh’s Christmas card drew international attention (and laughs). He explained that, “Our three year old enjoyed [the photo shoot] initially, but found it rather frustrating that we were standing still and looking at the cameraman. From his perspective, you can understand it: why stand still when you can play?”

Capture Your Thanksgiving Memories Using the everyStory App

By on November 24, 2015 in Memories, Photography, Tips

Welcome back to the everyStory blog!

The week of turkey, pumpkin pie and all the fixings has finally arrived. Thanksgiving is such a meaningful holiday for us—it’s the perfect time to create unique and everlasting digital stories that document moments with your near and dear, and all of the bounties that 2015 has given you. If you are tackling the project of capturing the holidays for the first time, or if you need some creative inspiration, the everyStory app has got you covered. Here are the ins and outs of using our app—and the must-have snapshots and frames—to craft your interactive Thanksgiving album like a pro:

  • The Holiday Huddle. A given, but nonetheless, be sure to get a photo of the whole family together! For some families this can be a rare occasion if relatives are spread out across cities, countries, or even continents. If not all members are present, an everyStory album is a great way to share the holiday with all of your loved ones that are near or far. Our privacy feature gives you control over exactly who can access your album and add photos with unlimited voiceovers, so you can share your precious moments with as little or as many people as you’d like!
    holidayhuddle

    Michael Phelps knows how to do the “Holiday Huddle.”

  • The Thanksgiving Spread. Give the chef some credit! Make sure to snap every crimson cranberry, succulent piece of turkey, and perfectly cut slice of pumpkin pie (ok, maybe Grandma’s marshmallow mystery dish, too). With everyStory, you can preserve the mouth-watering memory of your delicious feast to keep your foodie dreams alive until next year.
  • Details Galore. It’s in the details, right? Give your album some context and ambiance to take it to the next level! Including some shots of your home and the festive fall décor – a rustic cornucopia, the kids’ crafts from school, the changing of the leaves or the snow falling on the new set of twinkle lights– can make a world of difference years later when you want to remember the specifics of the day. Remember, details are the secret ingredient to preserving a specific memory in the most powerful and emotional way.

Now, let’s not forget the everyStory app’s voiceover feature as a versatile tool that can be used to capture the joy, gratitude, and laughter of your loved ones this Thanksgiving:

  • Give Thanks. Go around the table and have each person make a statement of what or whom they are thankful for—layer these recordings as a caption to your all-family photo for a perfect Thanksgiving memory!
  • Honor the Chef. Have the chef (or chefs!) in the house record accompanying audio to their most famous Thanksgiving dish, and be sure to include the end result or their hand-written original recipe for a more personal touch.
  • Include the kid’s table. Ask the younger family members what they think Thanksgiving is and record the responses. This should produce plenty of smiles for the grown-ups present, and also serves as a nice memory for the little ones once they’ve grown up.
  • Caption the turkey. A fun and comical game to lighten up a solemn or awkward dinner table: select the best shot of the Thanksgiving spread’s main installation and have each attendee record what the turkey is saying or thinking—this could be warbling and gobbling noises or a sarcastic comment, it all depends on the person!

Personalize Your Presents with everyStory’s Holiday Gifting Guide

By on November 19, 2015 in Memories, Photography

Welcome back to the everyStory blog!

With the beginning of the holiday shopping season swiftly approaching, consider incorporating the everyStory app into your holiday celebration or even as a digital gift! Some of best gifts on this planet are memories – specifically because they fuel bonds and connectivity between people and capture those precious moments in life that are simply priceless. If you already have a gift in mind, but feel it is lacking that certain personal touch, opt-in for an everyStory album instead of a holiday card, or incorporate your album into the gift itself! (Pssst…for all you party planners out there, you can also use the app as a digital party invite—try using the voiceover feature to add in party details onto some festive photos, and then ask everyone you invite to view the album to RSVP using their own voiceover.)

Here are the everyStory team’s recommendations on some versatile gift ideas that can be tailored to suit each of the important relationships in your life:

  • Sentimental – A great option for parents and grandparents since they can be tricky to buy for. This year, go the sentimental route and make an interactive photo album with the everyStory app! Compile all of your favorite memories and moments together, and narrate a voiceover to each image saying why they are important to you and why you are thankful for having them in your life. This gift idea is touching, heartfelt, and sincere – get ready for some tears (the good kind, we promise).
  • Romantic – Buying the right gift for your love can be an intimidating process. While tangible things (a nice bottle of cologne or a piece of jewelry) are lovely, the memories made from shared experiences are the most special. Incorporate an experiential element into your gift this year by creating a digital coupon book using the everyStory app. Some ideas might be a home-cooked dinner for two, a weekend getaway to a romantic destination, or an impromptu mid-week coffee date. Make sure to feature images of the two of you together and voice narrations of why you adore that person! holidaygifting
  • Funny – Great for relationships that are built on a more humoristic rapport; brotherly and sisterly love and close friendships often come with a very playful dynamic. Add some laughs to your gift by creating an interactive album of mildly embarrassing or funny photos (think old family photos, high-school and college years, or even memorable fashion faux-pas), including audio recordings of your best inside jokes.
  • Interactive – Design a scavenger hunt for someone special using the everyStory app. This can be done on any scale; keep it around the house or lead them around the entire town! Create clues for each destination with photos and the voiceover feature (don’t forget to leave a small gift at each pit-stop). A nice touch is to surprise them at the end with a larger gift or, even better, a hug or kiss!

Take your gifting to the next level this holiday season with the everyStory app. You can spice up your personalized presents by creating an interactive photo album highlighting your favorite memories with your loved one and customizing it for each person – grandparents, parents, siblings, that special someone, or a best friend. What’s on your holiday wish list?

Keeping the Holidays Merry

By on November 12, 2015 in Memories, Tips

Welcome back to the everyStory blog!

As much as we look forward to seeing our loved ones over the holidays, it is no secret that this time of year is also notorious for bringing out little kerfuffles in even the most functional of families. To make this holiday season as enjoyable and merry as possible, we’ve compiled a list of strategies that will ensure your visit with family is as easy as pie – maybe even pumpkin pie!

  • Family Bonding – Pencil in some evenings dedicated solely to family time. Oftentimes the moments when we are least occupied with sightseeing and holiday busy-ness are the ones when the best memories are made. So make memory-making a priority! Squeeze in some precious time with your loved ones by looking over an everyStory album together. Not only are everyStory albums great for reminiscing and having some laughs, they are a sure way to create new memories for the years to come. Challenge: Do a photo voiceover where everyone is singing Jingle Bells, even the ones that “can’t sing.”
  • Money Matters – If you are taking a trip as a family, have conversations about the upfront costs involved to avoid any misunderstandings or confusion. Remember to be considerate of others’ financial restrictions; maybe it isn’t necessary to book the most expensive hotel or eat out for every meal. If your family has invited you as a guest, preparing a family dinner or planning a group activity – such as a movie night or theatre performance — is a nice gesture to express your gratitude. Remember, majority of life’s precious moments don’t have a price tag associated with them.
  • Self-Care – As much as we love our families, being around them 24/7 can be draining. Dedicate some of your holiday vacation to unwinding, de-stressing, and relaxing, so that you can truly enjoy it. A great way to do this is to find an active outlet that you can do alone; whether it’s walking with the family dog, dropping in at a local yoga studio, or adding to your everyStory album – some like to think of it as a digital journal entry. Feel free to take some evenings to yourself if you need to.
  • Turn Down the Tension – Be the peacekeeper at family gatherings by avoiding sore subjects with your family members that you know will cause tempers to rise. A strong tactic to keep things civil is to acknowledge the other person’s opinion and open up the discussion to a peaceful compromise. Though the result may not be exactly what you had hoped for, it still beats ruining the moment and the joyful memories that come with it. Remember, the holidays are meant to bring people closer together, not pull them apart.homealone

Whether you are visiting, hosting, or traveling with family, make this holiday count by keeping things low-stress and focused on what’s most important – the people you love. Share your best techniques for having a happy holiday with us!

A New Way for Military Families to Stay Connected

By on November 5, 2015 in Health, Memories

Welcome back to the everyStory blog!

Happy November! The holidays are right around the corner, and we are already filling up with the spirit of giving and the urge to help loved ones stay connected throughout this season. Veterans Day, November 11, is quickly approaching and everyStory would like to express gratitude to those who have already given so much for their country. The official day for honoring our nation’s veterans is extremely important to us, yet we stand behind the belief that expressing our deep appreciation towards those who put their lives at risk on behalf of their nation should not be limited to one day a year. Military service often entails great individual sacrifice: long periods of time spent away from family, and the potential for personal injury (among other things), which is why we are taking this opportunity to highlight our hopes of how everyStory will help military families cope with deployment or injury recovery.

Imagine being able to witness your loved ones’ important life events from overseas, or having a tool to assist with the recollection of memories? While the everyStory team realizes that it is not physically possible to go back in time, we do know that there are ways to make special memories more accessible for generations to come. A recent article from the team at Mashable states, “everyStory…lets anyone record personal color commentary to a photo, whether it’s an old family portrait or a birthday party shot from thirty years ago.” With our app, you can store, curate and organize unlimited images with voiceovers from family and friends to create an interactive story album that helps people relive special moments. veteransday

Our technology can ensure that those currently deployed don’t miss a single first step, birthday, graduation or anniversary while they are serving their country. everyStory’s features also create a new way for wounded warriors who are battling with memory loss to relive moments and recollect lost memories. It’s as simple as uploading your photos, narrating your story and utilizing our playback feature to reminisce whenever you’d like.

If you or a loved one has served or is currently deployed, we encourage you to download the everyStory app to alleviate the challenges of homesickness and memory-related dilemmas that often come with military service. Thank you to everyone that has served and protected our country!

Safe Guarding Your Child’s Memories and Trick-or-Treating Safety Tips

By on October 29, 2015 in Memories, Tips

Welcome back to the everyStory blog!

Halloween is a few days away and families in America are gearing up for this weekend’s festivities – prepping costumes, stocking up on sweet treats and more. Historically, Halloween has been devoted to ghoulish frights and horrifying things that go “bump” in the night, but nowadays it has evolved into a festive spectacle that allows kids to do what they do best: dress up, indulge in sweet treats, and have fun! Let’s not forget the kids-at-heart out there who enjoy venturing to the pumpkin patch, decorating to the nines, and attending Halloween parties at any age (the everyStory team included). While this day is all about having fun, it’s important to keep safety in mind while partaking in the revelry – especially for the children! Here is a list of some simple precautions you can take with the little ones in your life to ensure their safety this Halloween:

  • Tag along, parents or guardians! While your child may not be too keen on the idea, it’s better to be safe than sorry. You can make it more fun for both of you by getting spirited and dressing up, too. (Tip: If they are embarrassed that dad or mom is tagging along, convince them that no one will know who you are when you’re in a mask or full gorilla suit!) Depending on the age group, it may be appropriate for young adults to venture out on their own, but make sure they do so with a small group of friends and in an area they know well. Establish a clear curfew and contact protocol in case an emergency should happen. An additional bonus to being present for the festivities is that you can easily document the trick-or-treating fun live and in living color using the everyStory app, while still keeping an eye on things.halloweencandy
  • Keep it local. Regardless of whether or not you accompany your child, it’s better to stick to your neighborhood or another area that you are familiar with. The last thing you want to do on Halloween is get lost and lose out on precious candy collecting time. Plus, when you stay in a place that is a little closer to home you have more accessibility to a safety net of people you know and trust that can help out if need be.
  • Choose hazard-free costumes. It may seem like a no-brainer, but try and dissuade your child from picking costumes that limit movement or vision and sharp, pointed accessories. For infants, check their costume to make sure it is loose fitting and comfortable for a long evening of fun. A tip for trick-or-treaters of all ages is to avoid dark colors as they are harder to see at night – especially for drivers.
  • Obey the rules of the road. Whether you are a driver or a pedestrian, on Halloween the streets become more chaotic and therefore more dangerous. If you are on foot, stick to the sidewalks and obey traffic lights. For drivers it’s especially important on this day to be even more aware of pedestrians and of course, not use mobile devices while driving..
  • Minimize exposure to strangers – offline and online. This is a big one! Naturally you will want to document your child’s getup (and possibly your own) on Halloween and now with everyStory’s privacy feature, you can compile all of your interactive festive photos in one place and choose exactly who has access to your albums. This is also a great, and safe, place for teens to exchange and comment about their photos amongst friends. Our app stores users’ photos in a secured cloud, so you can take and upload as many photos as you want while knowing it is private and exclusive to your community.

Storytelling as Therapy in Honor of National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month

By on October 22, 2015 in Health, Memories, Tips

Welcome back to the everyStory blog!

This November, along with celebrating Thanksgiving and commemorating our nation’s veterans, everyStory would like to spread the word about National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, the fatal disease is the only one among the top 10 in America, which at present has no known cure, no means of counteraction, and no way to prolong its onset (Source: www.alz.org).

For those suffering from Alzheimer’s, memory loss often manifests as difficulty recalling special moments from the past, and many in advanced stages of the disease are not able to recognize their loved ones. Alzheimer’s patients also typically experience a loss of independence in their daily lives, as they discover they are no longer able to perform simple day-to-day tasks that were once second nature to them, such as bathing, getting dressed, or navigating one’s way around the kitchen. This trying process is not only frustrating, but also emotionally painful for both patients and their loved ones or caretakers.

Often times the holidays can amplify the stressors of memory loss, as they are filled with family get-togethers and nostalgia. Instead, everyStory encourages you to view the holidays as an opportunity to fortify your connection with your loved ones through interactive storytelling; integrate the everyStory app into your holiday traditions by using it as an inclusive and therapeutic method of assisting with the Alzheimer’s coping process. According to health care professionals, not only does storytelling encourage verbal communication, it also builds self-esteem (Source: http://www.alzfdn.org/EducationandCare/storytelling.html).

Here are some helpful ways you can incorporate interactive storytelling into your family holiday traditions, making it more enjoyable for everyone:

  1. Shift the focus from recalling old memories to making new ones – this will create a participatory environment that allows the whole family to take part in the fun.
  2. Use holiday-themed images and sensory triggers (taste, smell, etc.) to inspire creative narratives fitting of the season.thanksgivingtable
  3. For Alzheimer’s patients, ask open-ended questions that encourage description – this takes the pressure off of a wrong or right “Yes” or “No” answer.
  4. Play your loved one’s favorite holiday music and see what kind of reaction it evokes. Sounds are an especially conducive tool for recalling feelings and emotions, rather than words—ideal for helping those struggling with verbal articulation
  5. Use our app’s voice-over feature to record anecdotes and capture candid moments, while creating new memories as a family!
  6. Revisit your stories on our cloud-based app whenever you want—playback those special moments for your loved ones who need a little assistance remembering the details.

Give your loved ones the gift of warm, heartfelt memories with everyStory this holiday season! Yes, our app is an excellent and therapeutic tool for coping with memory loss, but it’s also a wonderful way to reconnect with those suffering and to celebrate family in a fun and interactive way.

Wag Often, Bark Less

By on October 16, 2015 in Health, Memories, Tips

Welcome back to the everyStory blog!

For all of you animal lovers out there, October is national Adopt-A-Dog month. The everyStory team is in full support of the must-love-dogs stance, and we know firsthand the significant meaning and benefits of having a pet as part of the family. If you already have a four-legged friend, creating an everyStory album about the powerful bond you share with your pet is an excellent way to preserve the joy they bring to your life—from epic hikes with the hound, to the first day at doggy daycare.

If you are not a current pet owner, but are considering becoming one, adoption is an excellent way to save an animal’s life while also improving your own. According to the American Humane Association, approximately 3-4 million animals in shelters are euthanized each year due to a lack of available homes. That statistic pulls at our heartstrings. Recently, an animal adoption center in Utah came up with an ingenious way to help solve this problem; it’s solution that employs the everyStory philosophy on storytelling as a powerful and transformational tool. The Humane Society of Utah used a photo booth to candidly capture the personalities of the dogs at the shelter in comical snapshots. The results were phenomenal, seeing as every single one of the dogs that participated in the photoshoot were adopted. (We can’t help but imagine if they used everyStory’s unlimited voiceover feature to capture all of the happy “yips” and “woofs” on adoption day.)

Not only do pets offer companionship and unconditional love, they also provide owners with proven mental and physical health benefits. Here are some interesting facts that demonstrate how pet ownership can lead to a happier and healthier life:

  1. Heart health. Pets fill your heart with love while also making it stronger; many studies have shown that owning a pet reduces the likelihood of a heart attack by lowering blood pressure, cholesterol, triglyceride levels, and stress! (Source: cdc.gov)
  2. Cold-combaters. If you have young children in the house, having a pet around is a great way to make sure they develop a robust immune system. Pets are proven allergy-fighting boosters, helping to fortify resistance to allergies by up to 33%. (Source: http://jacionline.org)
  3. Breaking the ice. Pets are an easy and fun conversation starter especially when meeting fellow animal lovers. Dog parks, training classes, and outdoor cafes are all spots frequented by pet owners and are great places to introduce a new social element into your life while your furry friend gets a workout.
  4. Personal trainer. Dogs, in particular, can help those struggling with weight-loss to maintain a consistent fitness regimen. Take your pup out for a walk, run, or bike ride, and add some cheer and “woofs” to your workout!
    hiking dog
  5. Perhaps the most important benefit of owning a pet is a sweeping improvement in overall mood and wellbeing. Pets often instill a sense of purpose and responsibility in their owners, bringing fulfillment and joy to even the dullest of days.

Regardless of whether or not you have already found your furry forever friend, the everyStory team encourages you to consider the many positive ways that owning a pet can have on changing your life for the better – and the difference you can make in theirs.

Tell a Stylish Story this Halloween
