our community & events

Follow Photo & Story Treasures on social media here:

Welcome!  We've got a lot going on, so just scroll down to find the event you're looking for.

When you begin using Forever with Jennifer as your Photo & Story Treasures consultant, you become part of a community of like-minded memory-keepers, people who know that the value of photos and memories is much more than a dollar amount.  

Photos, memories, and stories are priceless when they're recorded!  (But, sadly, not worth anything when they're not!)

Connect with our community on social media:  Facebook Group  -  Instagram 

How can our community help you? 

You always get free support from Jennifer as you create photo-storybooks and individual digital scrap pages (or whatever other product you choose) at your Forever account  (Click here to get started, if you haven't yet.) 

Plus, here are five great ways to be supported and have fun with our community while doing something so meaningful.  

1.  Fast, Fun Friday!
  • We create a specific photo project each Fast, Fun Friday! in 30 minutes or less.  Although there will be one specific project type to choose from, there will be a handful of styles to choose from. 
  • You'll need to have a Forever account (it's free, just like Fast, Fun Fridays!) first, so open yours here if you haven't yet. 
  • It's never too late!  See previous Fast, Fun Fridays! at this link.  Here's the next Fast, Fun Friday! (details and link):
Fast, Fun Friday!:  The Umpteenth Annual "Enjoy December" Card Party
Friday, November 3 any time 8-9am, 1-2pm, or 5-6pm Mountain Time
Every November, Fast, Fun Friday! doubles as our Umpteenth Annual "Enjoy December" Card Party where we digitally create and order our Christmas greetings so we can just enjoy December!  Learn more at this link, then scroll down to "Classes and Events by Photo and Story Treasures" for the join link and passcode.  

2.  Photo Rodeo: Rein in Your Photos
  • Photo Rodeo is just dedicated time you can calendar so you make sure your good intentions turn into something you can hold!  Work on photo organizing, creating digital photo-storybooks, or whatever your photos need right now.  (Jennifer will be there to answer questions if you have any, too.)  It's a free service for clients of Jennifer Wise who create their projects at  https://www.forever.com/ambassador/jennifer-wise  (You can open your free account at the link if you don't already have one.)
  • Photo Rodeo: Rein in Your Photos is held once a quarter for 2 hours.  Stay the whole time, or come and go as you like.  We will be working together on our individual computers but connected via Zoom.  Turn off and on your video and microphone as you wish.  (Some Photo Rodeos will be held in the daytime, and others in the evening, to better accommodate a variety of schedules.)
  • Here's the next Photo Rodeo (details and link):
Fall Photo Rodeo
Tuesday October 17, 2023 - 11:00am-1:00pm (Mountain Time)
Drop in/out at your convenience!
 Join the Fall Photo Rodeo at this link with passcode: PhotoRodeo

3.  Classes and Events from Photo and Story Treasures
  • Most classes are free, and all of them are fabulous.  Past classes have included photo organization & preservation, how to transition from paper to digital scrapbooking, photo storage solutions, Yearbook Boot Camp, Connect to Your Heart, and more.  
  • You may request a class on the topic of your choosing, too--whatever you'd like to learn more about!  Just contact me!  Classes and other events are usually recorded for anyone who can't attend live.  
  • Here are the upcoming events: 
Basic Photo Organizing with Permanent Storage (online; $19)
Wednesday, October 4 OR Tuesday October 24, 7-8pm Mountain Time
In this one-hour online class, you'll learn 6 steps to successful photo organization, following 
advice from photo experts, plus a method for permanently storing your photos: 
a structure, a system, and a solution.

The Umpteenth Annual "Enjoy December" Card Party (online; free)
Friday, November 3 any time 8-9am, 1-2pm, or 5-6pm Mountain Time
This casual party is a great way to make creating and sending Christmas cards more fun!  Come to any of the 3 sessions and create your cards digitally with friends.  Find more details here.

4.  Classes and Events from Forever
  • The Forever professionals at the home office offer fantastic events and classes, too!  They're all online--some are free and some have a cost.  Here's what's coming up next:
Forever Virtual (online, $19)
September 16, 2023 from 12-1pm Eastern Time
Join the Forever team to learn about preserving your photos, videos, memories, and stories--both in print and digitally (with access to an awesome app, too)!  All sessions will be recorded in case you miss any live (and will be emailed to you).  Register here.

Pixels 2 Pages events (online, cost varies, some free)
If you are an Artisan (digital scrapbooking software) user, the pros at Pixels2Pages will give you in-depth training on techniques, access to their video tutorials, virtual crops (events; some paid, some free), free blueprint designs to use in Artisan, and much more!  
Learn more about a P2P membership here.

5.  Bring Friends Along! 

Here are three additional ways to make the most of our online memory-keeping and photo-preserving community.

  1. Host an event online with friends to get two great benefits:  First, you can choose the topic of the event (how to make easy photo-storybooks that are heirloom quality, best photo storage options, how to stop being overwhelmed with your photos by using yearbooks, etc.) so that you get tools and information you need!  Second, inviting friends to your event gives you a tribe--a group of people you can work with after the event (think "Girls Night") on your own photo organization, creating photobooks, etc.  Many people find they accomplish their goals when they work with someone else.  

  2. Don't forget that your Forever account comes with your own personal referral link.  Think of someone you know who would love Forever, too, and you'll get a $20 coupon when they open their own Forever accounts using your referral link.  (And they get a $20 coupon, too!)  Coupons are stackable, which means you can use them together.  If you have 4 friends who open Forever accounts using your link, that's $80 you can use towards publishing books, Forever Storage (for photos, videos, and audio files), Forever Box digitizing services (scanning, slides, VHS to digital, etc.), and more.
  3.  Forever makes a meaningful side gig, too.  Consider the business side if you know others who want to prioritize their photos and memories and stories, too.  This is also perfect for you if want to create your own community of memory-keepers (in-person Girls Nights and online groups are both fun), and if you'd like to cover your own memory-keeping expenses.  Learn more about it here: 

Contact me with questions and information on how to enroll as an ambassador with Forever .  You'll become a part of my own memory-keeping team, Team Wise - The Rising Phoenix, and you'll be able to welcome your friends to your group while accessing lots of my resources to help them become memory-keepers!
