I am SO excited & SO pleased to let you know that the new “Best of Becky Higgins Sketches” books are NOW SHIPPING.
Some of you pre-ordered the book, some of you will be heading to your local scrapbook or craft store and some of you might need a little nudge with this one. Do you really need another book? Here’s my shameless plug: It’s one thing to have 200 sketches in one cute little book (that doesn’t take up a lot of space on your table). But this is another thing …
Do you know what that is? Two HUNDRED layouts. I did 200 brand-new layouts for this book, so you’re getting oodles of inspiration for photo ideas, themes to write about, color schemes, design ideas, you name it. This is the most amount of layouts that I’ve ever done for any of my books. The sketches helped me pull those off even faster.
Okay, enough about that.

Kudos to Heidi Swapp and the whole team that pulled off a great Creative Escape for 600 attendees. It was truly a pleasure to be there, and to come in contact with inspiring women who have so much to share. So privileged to soak in all that Allison Tyler Jones had to say in her keynote address, spend a little time catching up with my good friend Stacy Julian, and hang out with Margi Romney-Aslett (who constantly makes me laugh!).
Speaking of Marji … happy birthday to HER today! Marji recently learned that it was “my thing” to always, always wear rubber gloves with kitchen chores. So she brought me a super adorable pair of new gloves that makes me feel like a diva while I’m scrubbing my dishes. Incidentally, I gave her a gift too, but she wasn’t nearly excited about the pair of disposable gloves I gave her. I’m not sure why. I use these in the kitchen, too, for handling meat and onions and such.
Yes, I’m totally serious. You can buy them in bulk at Costco and I love Costco for that.

Just thinking about today and what it memorializes. My thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost loved ones six years ago today. I know some are still deeply affected by those tragic events every day of their life and it is my prayer that they can find peace and feel joy in their life.
