Your votes helped select Life's Memories & More as the recipient of the 2016 Independent We Stand, Independent Small Business of the Year Award - Sponsored by STIHL Inc. and FCA US LLC. Life's Memories & More is a scrap bookstore, located in Palmer, MA, that not only provides a haven for crafters to foster creativity with hands-on classes and crafting events but takes pride in supporting many causes.

“We’ve created this community of crafters that also want to participate when we are making pink scarves for breast cancer survivors, crafting cards for our service members, collecting for a Boy Scout food drive or stuffing boxes for our military deployed overseas,” explained Tanya Bullock, owner of Life’s Memories & More. “It’s just amazing to me this community of people that have come together under the umbrella of Life’s Memories and More.”

Little did Bullock know when she opened her store a decade ago, her passion for scrapbooking would spill over into a full-time career supporting so many successful charitable initiatives. With the help of her customers, Bullock has sent more than 35,000 mostly handcrafted greeting cards to our troops since 2009. Since 2007, her customers helped raise more than $11,500 for the Rays of Hope Foundation and donated more than 200 handmade pink scarves to the Pink Scarf Project.

Congratulations to Life’s Memories & More!
