Hello Peas!

I'm here for an hour to chat about whatever you fancy. How are you?

One person who posts in this chat will win my Two Peas workshop The Hitchhiker's Guide to Scrapbooking, but to declare yourself a candidate for that, you need to include 'I won't forget my towel!' somewhere in your post. (Please don't post just that. But add it on if you haven't done the workshop and would like to, yes? That's it!)

Also... my big news today is about reserving a Christmas in a Box kit for 2013. That will go live on my blog after Lisa finishes her chat, so two hours from now.

Right, let's talk!


love & glitter,
shimelle.~*

Hi Shimelle! I am new to 2Peas and I have staying up WAY past bedtime watching your videos on my ipad. You are awesome!!! Just how do you scrap upside down? Did it take you awhile to start doing that? I just love that you take us through your thought process in each video.

Thanks so much for hosting Shimelle! Christmas Kit in a Box sounds so exciting!!! What are you loving from CHA summer? Any item or line in particular? I've never participated in a workshop before, so I won't forget my towel!

My favourite is the one colour challenge - I like the monochromatic look and I'm working on a LO for this challenge at the moment (well, I stopped when I saw that the chat began )

I'm also liking the "use 9 old products" - might get me to use up some of my stash

Last year was my first CHA as I'm a newbie and I didn't do any challenges. So, this year I'm hoping to do at least a few.

Oh, and I won't forget my towel!

I had to go check my linen closet to see if I needed a towel, and guess what... I do, so don't let me forget it, please!

Actually I ended up using my hubby's towel recently. I gave him a new one after I dried off. Silly me. So I guess, 'I won't forget my towel!' next time. lol!

I have participated in Journal your Christmas for many years, but have not purchased the kit I am very excited!

Thank you so much for joining JYC! So glad you like it and it still makes you excited!


What are you liking so far from the show?

I like a lot of usual favourites for me - Amy T, Crate (including the Maggie line), Dear Lizzy. I've been working with the Echo Park Christmas line this week and it's really lovely too.


You are my scrapbooking hero!! I was so thrilled to see that you were doing a chat today.

You are FAR too kind! Bless your cotton socks!


What is this Christmas in a box you mention?

Christmas in a Box is a kit I put together every year. I ship directly to UK addresses from here, and anywhere else in the world you can order from Two Peas. At summer CHA, I take deposits for those who want to reserve a kit when the holidays arrive.

I am noticing certain trends came around again, cameras, chevrons, feathers, and a lot of arrows. The blackboard thing may be fun for Halloween I think.
