The 'New Blanks Bug'

Here at Beaducation, we have really caught the 'New Blanks Bug.' It seems like it started with our Puzzle Piece and Guitar Pick. Before you knew it we were adding Banners, Wings, Boots, Triangle Flags and more! Lisa  came up to me a couple months ago and said, "I think I have a great blank idea. What do you think about a Thought Bubble?"

I didn't know what she meant. She drew it out and showed the crew here. We thought it was brilliant! In the excitement of our new Thought Bubble, I recalled that we get requests all the time from customers wishing we had a Broken Heart.

I looked online at a bunch of broken hearts, but nothing looked quite right. In fact, if you 'google' BFF hearts or broken hearts you really will find a bunch of them that look good as long as they remain together, but not great apart. And let's think about it - when would you wear the heart together?

So after drawing dozens of broken hearts, we settled on the one we have right now. We think it is mighty cute and it just happens to come in Sterling Silver, Silver Filled, Copper, Brass and Gold Filled!

So there you have it. We all have the 'New Blanks Bug.' Jennifer Parzych of our Shipping Team just told me how we need a 'bib' blank and now a cute lil' half moon scalloped one is on the list. I also hear rumors that a horseshoe may be trotting in very soon! So keep checking back with us because Beaducation is never stale! As long as we have a CEO like Lisa Niven Kelly who comes up with innovate ideas every time she eats a piece of dried seaweed and loves to hear her staff's ideas too, how can we not keep growing!
