Our Story

Meet Terri and Stephanie, the mother-daughter duo who turned one BIG idea into an internationally recognized creative brand.

Our Story Began...

Our story began at a baseball game in 1998 when my mom and I sat and talked about an idea we had for a product. It was our BIG idea. We had a vision to create stickers designed specifically for scrapbooking and believed we had something unique to offer. So, we took a leap of faith, started our company and agreed on the perfect name, me & my BIG ideas... because dreaming up BIG ideas is our specialty!


After dreaming up a lot of BIG ideas, putting in a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck, our tiny, garage-based business quickly turned into an industry-leading brand with a corporate headquarters in a 41,000 square foot building in Southern California, offering a wide variety of products that inspires our customers to Live Creatively™!


Together, with our amazing team, we continue to use our strengths in design and creative innovation to bring new products to the market. One of those new products was The Happy Planner®! Since its launch in the spring of 2015, The Happy Planner® has quickly become the most popular and best-selling product line in our company’s 20-year history.


It is our mission to spread happy wherever we go and to empower people everywhere to embrace the positive and Plan a Happy Life™!
