About Us

What's your story? What do you know of your parent’s story? Your grandparents? As time goes by, memories fade until they are lost forever.

Your children want to know what you were like as you were growing up. Tell them about your dreams. What are you proud of as an adult? There is only one way to tell your story so it lasts forever. Write it down! Put it down in a journal. That's what inspired the Once Upon a Life™ collection.

You could store your memories on a disk or a DVD or even a thumb drive, but media is changing rapidly, and when it comes time for your children or grandchildren to listen to it, the technology might be obsolete. However, you can still read writings from the people who settled this nation or even times before that.

Once Upon a Life™ by Forever Memories, LLC, is a collection of high-quality, handcrafted memory books and journal products to help you tell your story in a way that lasts. We opened up shop in 2017, proudly making and selling our products from Portland, Oregon.
