Mom Leaves Corporate America for Small Business Venture- Can You Picture It?

Your family singing "Happy Birthday" at your daughter's first birthday, an imaginative wish list for Santa from your 4-year-old, your baby's ultrasound heartbeat. Have you ever looked back at your photo albums and tried to remember those sounds?

PictureThatSound was founded to meet an unmet need in the memory-keeping market. The product pairs a creative photo matte with a recordable device for sound. Some of the product features include:
  • Archival paper
  • Replaceable batteries
  • High-quality memory chip to ensure your recording lasts generations
  • Attractive themed designs to inspire your photo album/scrapbook- or to use as a stand-alone project
Another reason I love this product is that it was developed by a fellow mom-preneur, Jennifer Furr. Like many busy moms in America-- a wife, mother of two, corporate employee, community volunteer, she decided to leave her corporate job to bring a product to market that she could not find on retail shelves.  She pledges to grow a "customer first" life-experience company that creates, markets and delivers products that help preserve memories pairing picture with sound.

Check out some of my personal samples pictured below.  My family and I had a ball this weekend creating two birthday gifts where Natalie (my 4 year old) sang "Happy Birthday" to her 2 year old cousin and her PopPop.  We affixed a magnet to the back of one and created a shadow box display for the grandparents to display in their home.  The hinged door on the shadow box easily opens to allow you to push "play" on the PictureThatSound card.
