Keeping Memories With Keepy


Disclosure: I was given a Keepy account in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Perhaps I'm just a sentimental softie...but one of my favorite parts of parenting is the crafts and creations that my kids make just for me. At our homeschool co-op the kids attend classes and every week they bring me handprint keepsakes, glitter encrusted artwork, paintings, worksheets they’ve completed, and other crafts. And at home they love making things too - cards, drawings, comics, doodles...you get the idea. I'd love to display each one of these creations but that's just not possible. However, there is a way for me to keep them all and show them off.

Keepy is a really fantastic app that helps you keep your favorite memories organized - it's helping me to not only hold on to all those wonderful mementos my children have created but to also minimize the amount of “things” I have to actually physically hold on to! And in addition to that, I can easily share their lovely projects and art with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends!


With the Keepy app, I simply snap a picture of the creation - say a painting - and then select which kiddo did it. (Each one has their own little profile with picture.) I can then have the child record a message or video about the project, add a date and title, and more details. I can also tag it with specific hashtags - holiday, homework, milestone, craft, etc. The gallery is private and only available to those I add via email address. Family members and friends that I add can comment or add video/voice comments on the children's artwork to let them know they like it. And another plus - Keepy has a very simple interface that's easy to use...especially good for family/friends that may not be very into technology.


Keepy is a free app downloadable within the App Store, Google Play, or on the Kindle. They offer 3 different levels of membership with different features. Everything you save on Keepy is backed up to their protected cloud-based system but they also give you the option of linking to DropBox as well. The Keepy Store offers a handy place to print photo books and other unique photo products that are perfect for Mother's Day, Father's Day, birthday gifts for the grandparents, and more.
