I cant believe there is no CHA Social this year. Ive been looking forward to it for weeks. The special board, sneak videos, challenges. What a let down.

I'm disappointed too. I was so looking forward to it. There were at least two threads asking about this, one of which was mine. I wish they would have at least answered one of them

It is very disappointing, more so is the lack of communication.

I'm shocked too! Seems like ever since Jamie left things have been a lot different around here. Even the weekly videos there's no product videos anymore? I love CHA social at twopeas! What a bummer!

We love our 2Peas socials. It's so much fun to chat with and hang out and get excited about new releases.

They require lots and lots of preparation behind the scenes and this year with Jamie being gone and the start of a new Garden vision, there just wasn't time to pull one together. That doesn't mean we can't chat about what we love and share what we see online.

I think we should start threads about things we love, see, want, etc. I know I'd love to hear what you are all seeing that you're in love with.

I'm at the show, so if you have requests I'll try to Instagram some photos for you. Just let me know.

I've been out of the scrapbooking loop for about two years, just got the itch to dive back in and realized it was CHA time, so I come here to my favorite 2peas to see what's new and get more excited. What I found is not what I expected


more so is the lack of communication

Thanks Jen. That's so nice of you. I think most of us Peas will understand...things happen. Any news you can share or letting us know what Two Peas will soon be getting would be awesome

Thanks Jen, that's sweet of you. I'm sure anything you share would be appreciated.


However, I agree with the OP. I think it's very disappointing that none of the threads were answered by TPTB.

I'm kind of lost without out it, I'm embarrassed to admit!

Thanks Jen, I need to first follow you on IG, haha, and then I will request. How about another wall of thickers in the meantime.

And quadruple thanks to Jamie for all she did for us these past few years!! We miss you.

Jen,
thanks so much for responding!!! I agree, anything you post here about CHA would be appreciated! I am disappointed about the lack of communication regarding the decision to not have a CHA chat, share and challenge. Obviously, I am disappointed that we are not have a "dedicated" CHA "scrap/chat along". Did 2peas run the numbers in regards to purchases?

Jen...we would love anything you bring us from the show. I am also disappointed about not having anything here, Maybe some of the GG would take some time to "talk" with us. There should have been something written to us to tell us there would not be CHA social. But I do understand.

Jen,
I so appreciate you jumping in to let us know for sure that there is nothing planned for this week.

I would not have been nearly so disappointed if someone (not a GG because that is not your responsibility!) had just let us know and set some expectations. I do realize that it takes a lot of work to pull something like this off, but just tell us. We have been asking for over a week.

Also, am I right in remembering that CHA has gone to one event a year? Does that mean there will be nothing in the summer?

I don't Instagram so I guess I won't be playing on here this weekend. Enjoy!

I am completely bummed too! I understand that Jamie is gone and lots of changes with the Garden Girls, but come on.....CHA comes at the same time every year, it's not like it was a surprise. Why would you miss the chance,as a store, to build all of that excitement over all the new products, the very products you will be selling for the next few months?

Thanks for letting us know that there won't be anything here and for offering to show us things from the show, that's very nice of you and so not your job to! But I don't do Instagram

This makes me sad especially as there will only be one CHA this year. I love the CHA social but my favourite part is the challenges and scrapping along with other Peas

Yes, I know they are work, but I still couldn't believe that 2Peas did not have a social.

I, too, had been looking forward to it.

But people are stepping up to fill the void.... Yeah Peas.

Along with everyone else, I too am disappointed that we aren't having a social, and but I a extra disappointed that no one from Two Peas stepped up to let us know even though there were lots of threads asking about it. Major bummer!

I think this is a poor choice to decide not to do a thing in regards to CHA especially with the way things were trending toward the end of the year. Poor twopeas. Hope they get their act together.

I was wondering what was going on. I've been scrapping lately and thought I might actually do some challenges. It seems there should be SOMETHING rather than absolutely nothing. Not even product sneek peeks - I would think that someone is there. Hmm.

Also I was disappointed that there don't seem to be any January printables. I will admit it isn't something I would usually purchase but was quite keen this month to get some for the start of my 2013 PL album.

I understand the disappointment, but I think the timing of the new Garden plans, combined with lots of staffing changes has kept Kristina extremely busy. But her vision for the site this upcoming year is exciting and inspiring and I promise it will be worth these temporary "growing pains!"

I'm also at the show and am posting regularly on Instagram at http://instagram.com/bluestardesign

Let me know if there's anything in particular you'd like to see or chat about!

Looks like one of the new things is becoming one of the few online-only sellers of Project Life. I imagine the prep for that takes a LOT of time.

I missed having challenges and I really missed the product videos. I always use those to see what collections to plan on for a season. I've scoured YouTube and haven't found much. Ranger seems to be the only company really putting much video up.
