it’s our 6th birthday!
Well, hello there! And happy October 1st!
Six years ago, my husband David and I launched Becky Higgins® LLC … and our lives have been forever enhanced because of that risky decision. We really didn’t know much about running a business or manufacturing or selling products. Everything was ours to figure out. And there was a lot to learn. Through mistakes, sleep deprivation, sweat, and tears (no blood that I can recall) we did figure a few things out. Project Life® ended up in the hands of customers across the world and word spread like wildfire that this new approach to scrapbooking was something special… something that was truly a solution for so many.
I’m all about celebrating the company’s birthday each year. I so love this work we do. I love what it means and how it’s helping people and bringing families closer together and helping complete strangers to connect through this special hobby. I love my team! I love this system in all its formats (physical, digital, app)! I love you — our customers, readers, followers, fans, friends! Now 6 years into this, we have yet another month-long party planned. And you’re invited! Here’s what you can expect throughout the month of October:
Just for fun, and completely unrelated to Project Life or the work we do… each of us on the team will be sharing some of our very favorite things — random items, problem-solvers, tasty, or just pretty. We’re sharing a lot! It’s all going to be right here on the blog, each of us with our own blog post. I’ll be up first (later today) and this will go on throughout the month of October.
CONTESTS & PRIZES & GIVEAWAYS
Also throughout the month, we’ll be kicking off some fun & easy ways that you can WIN stuff. Stay tuned for details. We kinda love giving stuff away. Including something crazy extra-special that we’ve never done before. If you’re following my social media you know that my mom makes the most amazing afghans and would you believe it if I told you she has made one especially for one of YOU?? #AfghanAdventuresWithVicki
We have a very special piece of art to share with you in a variety of sizes. It’ll be coming to our site this month and it will be free for anyone and everyone.
NEW PRODUCTS & WEBSITE FEATURES
We’ll be announcing new products — physical, digital, and in the app — and also bringing the latest & greatest to our shop! Also, we’ve been working hard to bring you some cool new features to BeckyHiggins.com that we think you’ll absolutely love.
There’s something cool to announce pretty regularly around here. Fewer and farther between, we have a giant announcement that we just want to shout from the rooftops and this month, we have one of those bits of news to share. No, Android version of our app isn’t ready yet. I have to say that because I know so many of you are wondering and chomping at the bit. If you follow my social media, we share updates there. We’re working on the Android version and still aiming for right around the new year, but that’s not the big announcement for this month. You’ll have to stay tuned.
INSPIRATION FOR A GOOD LIFE
If you’re not already familiar with our Good Life series, it happens right here on the blog every Sunday. Each week we have a different guest contribute his or her thoughts on what it means to cultivate a good life. Through sharing their own personal real-life experiences, we are inspired and uplifted each week with these blog posts.
WE WANT TO SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS!
Pssssst. We want to hear from you! There are a few different ways you can have a chance to be featured on my social media. 1) We want to hear a specific part of how YOU cultivate a good life! I’m going to start sharing these on Instagram and Facebook, so shoot an email to GoodLife@BeckyHiggins.com and include a picture of you and a short blurb of text that begins with “Part of cultivating a good life is….” 2) If you want us to see how you’re using Project Life, tag me @BeckyHigginsLLC on Instagram or email us at CustomerService@BeckyHiggins.com. I am regularly sharing pages and ideas from our customers. 3) If you have some praises to sing about our products, customer service, or anything you like about what you’re “getting” from us, we’d be delighted to consider sharing your testimonial on my social media. Be sure to include a couple photo options.
As with every month throughout the year, we have Project Life inspiration to share — whether you use the physical or digital product or the app. This happens regularly on my social media and we also have a couple big blog posts in any given month. What’s extra special about the month of October, is this is when we begin our search for an all-new, completely fresh Creative Team! Yep, YOU have a chance to be a part of our 2016 Creative Team. Details forthcoming.
You know we have a YouTube channel, right? Be sure to check that out, and keep an eye on our blog, too, because we’ll be launching a full office tour video this month! Check out this post from a year ago. Hard to believe how time has flown because we are very settled into our space now. We’ve been in our new space nearly a year, so it’s time to share all the details! Also, if you’re a fan of videos, be sure you’re subscribing to our weekly emails because most of those have a brand-new and exclusive video. It takes 7 seconds to subscribe.
Okay, I’ll stop there. This is plenty to whet your appetite! Speaking of appetite, I baked some fresh chocolate chip banana bread for everyone in the office today and I’m thinking that a piece of that sounds really good right now.
Thanks for celebrating with us!
