our community & events

When you begin using either Forever or Heritage Makers-YPhoto (or both) 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 you always get from Jennifer as you create photo-storybooks and individual digital scrap pages (or whatever other product you choose) at your Forever and/or a Heritage Makers 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.  All of these will help you with your UFOs (Un-Finished Objects)!

1.  FAST, FUN FRIDAY!

What it is:  You'll create a specific photo project each Fast, Fun Friday!  Most of these quick projects will make great gifts or home decor and can be made in about 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.  Read more in the Details section below.

This is for you if:  you want to set aside fun time with friends to make quick photo projects, or you want to learn how to make a specific type of project.

How to participate:  First, be sure you have the Zoom program downloaded onto your computer.  Here's the link to the Zoom download if you need it.  Then you'll click the link below to join the video call.

Details:  Check the schedule below for upcoming Fast, Fun Fridays!  They will always be held on a Friday, but the dates and times are not on a set schedule.  To attend, all you need to do is click the Zoom link below!  Note:  You will need to have a Forever account or a Heritage Makers account before attending the event since you'll use one or the other to create your photo project (each is noted in the event ahead of time), so open your account at the links hereAccounts are free, and so are Fast, Fun Fridays!

FAST, FUN FRIDAY! #3: Notebooks & Journals


Episode 3 of Fast, Fun Friday! is on July 15, 2022, at 12:30pm MDT where we'll be creating notebooks/journals by Forever--in no time! Join Fast, Fun Friday! at this link.  The passcode is:  notebooks
  
Price:  Fast, Fun Friday! is a free event for clients of Jennifer Wise who create their projects at www.heritagemakers.com/jenniferwise or https://www.forever.com/ambassador/jennifer-wise  but you will pay for whatever item(s) you create and order.

2.  PHOTO RODEO: REIN IN YOUR PHOTOS

What it is An online community focused on preserving photos and memories, with dedicated time you can calendar so you make sure your good intentions turn into something you can hold!  

This is for you if:  You like working with others while you preserve your photos, memories, and stories.  Jennifer will be there to answer questions if you have any, too.  

How to participate:  First, be sure you have the Zoom program downloaded onto your computer.  Here's the link to the Zoom download if you need it.  Then you'll click the link below to join the video call.

Details:  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.)

Price:  This is a free service for clients of Jennifer Wise who create their projects at www.heritagemakers.com/jenniferwise or https://www.forever.com/ambassador/jennifer-wise  (You can open your free account at those links if you don't already have one.)

3.  CLASSES AND EVENTS (ALWAYS ONLINE)
What it is 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!  Just contact me!  Classes and other events are often recorded for anyone who can't attend live.  

This is for you if:  You want to learn a skill, deepen your knowledge, or try something new.  

How to participate:  Registration requirements vary, so see the details below.  Some classes have a small fee, and others are free.  Classes and events are held via Zoom, so download Zoom here if you need to, so you can attend.  You will be emailed links to join paid classes/events, and free ones will have links below for you to join.

4.  PHOTO FRIEND FINDER

What it is:  An opportunity to schedule time to work on projects with another person who is working on them, too.

This is for you if:  you have projects you want to complete and you just need someone to be accountable to in order to make it happen.

How to participate:  First, be sure you have the Zoom program downloaded onto your computer.  Here's the link to the Zoom download if you need it.  Then you'll click the link below to join the video call.

Details:  When Jennifer finds you a Photo Friend, she'll introduce you both via email, and then the two of you can discuss specifics on your own, including how to work together.  (Marcie and Patti have decided to complete one page on their own each week, then report to each other.  Haley and Wisteria use a Zoom call to connect with each other and work on their projects "together" that way.)

Price:  This is a free service for clients of Jennifer Wise who create their projects at www.heritagemakers.com/jenniferwise or https://www.forever.com/ambassador/jennifer-wise  (You can open your free account at those links if you don't already have one.)

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.  Both Heritage Makers-YPhoto and Forever make meaningful side gigs, too.  Consider the business side of either or both 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. 

Contact me with questions and information on how to enroll as an ambassador with Forever or a distributor with Heritage Makers-YPhoto.  You'll become a part of my own memory-keeping team, Team Wise, and you'll be able to welcome your friends to your group while accessing lots of my resources to help them become memory-keepers!  (You can see a side-by-side comparison of the two companies here, with compensation information on the last page.  Or ask me for more details.)
