Documenting life runs through my veins, I love to share, and I have an entrepreneurial spirit. These 3 elements lead up to why I do what I do, and ultimately how Project Life is now in thousands of homes all over the world. I work hard, but my work is not my life. I am a wife and a mother, a daughter, sister, friend, and volunteer. Christ is the center of everything I do and everything I am. I do my best to cultivate a good life and record little slices of life, and have a passion for helping others with a similar interest.
Born and raised in an awesome family with five brothers and fabulous parents, I am from a small railroad town in Maryland. At the age of 17, I moved to Utah to attend Brigham Young University, where I earned my BS degree in Family Science. During those college years two really significant things happened – I married an incredible guy, David Higgins, and an opportunity to have a career in scrapbooking fell out of the sky and landed right in my lap.
I joined Creating Keepsakes magazine in 1997 and spent 12 years contributing to the premier scrapbooking magazine. My work included authoring monthly feature articles and columns, 9 published books (see timeline below), TV spots, product design, and traveling to teach. Aside from teaching live classes, my work was based out of our home office wherever we lived. David and I moved to Arizona and then Ohio for his medical school and residency training.
In September 2009, I resigned from Creating Keepsakes. We launched Becky Higgins LLC so that I could carry out my passion for sharing ideas and solution-based scrapbooking products. Project Life was born shortly thereafter. Our products and our reach continue to expand. Arizona is where David and I are raising our 3 young children – Porter , Claire, and Crew. I continue to enjoy the constant challenge in balancing all of my roles and responsibilities in life and find no greater joy than being at home with my family.
