I have known the darling Miss Becky Higgins for…gosh…how many years has it been Becky? Let’s see….I think I first met her around the year 2000. I can’t remember for sure. It’s been quite a few years regardless. But I have a funny story about our early years. It was during one of the first CKUs in Provo and Becky and I already knew each other. I was meeting some other friends that had come into town for dinner at the ever-so tasty Los Hermanos down in Provo. I had some product to give to the girls and was carrying some scrapbook supplies out of my car, to give to one of them, when this young man comes up to me and says, “Are you a scrapbooker? There’s Becky Higgins!!!”
All I have to say is, poor Becky. What brother would do that to his sister???! lol
(I do believe it was Andrew that did this in case you ever want to retaliate Becky. )
What he didn’t know is that I already knew Becky. So, the joke was really on him because he didn’t get the screaming crazed fan reaction that he thought he would. (hee hee snicker snicker snort)
Since then we’ve chatted many-a times on email, run into each other at weddings and missionary talks, seen each other at CK and tradshows, sat by each other and supported Lisa Bearnson on Oprah–riding in a limo and everything, worked together during the Kit of the Month days, and most of all—worked on an amazing concept of Becky’s called: Project Life.
Not only was I there during the first concepting of her amazing idea, but I also worked with her to do the Turquoise Edition of Project Life.
This girl has a wonderful talent for trying to keep things simple and organized. You remember her sketches, don’t you?
She truly has a gift.
She has a gift to create solutions for making memory keeping simple. To capture the every day, the big day, and every day in between.
Anybody can do Project Life and do it in their own way. It doesn’t have to be done daily. It can be done weekly or monthly or just because. I like to refer to it as modern-day journaling. Only instead of all the writing, you get to have it in storybook form–with pictures . . . and ephemera . . . and notes . . . and on and on and on.
What an amazing idea.
And now, Becky has created a brand new class on Big Picture Classes called Project Real Life.
‘What is this Project Real Life class’ you say?
Here is a quote from her class page:
“Whether you’re a long-time Project Lifer or you’re just now hearing about Project Life, you will love learning about the guilt-free philosophy behind this system of memory-keeping. While Becky will give you plenty to think about and do during the 12 weeks of this workshop, she has no intentions of overwhelming you. This is based on her belief that that there isn’t a person that exists who really “does it all” — and this should be the last thing that we expect from ourselves.”
Guilt free. I love it.
I am attending this class.
I am excited.
