Two Peas Moment: Wishing you a HapPEA Halloween!

That Kitty.  Among her many lovable attributes is her festiveness.  

She wore these adorable stripe-ty witch socks today. And purple witch earrings.

And a button that says "I steal candy from my kid on Halloween." heehee! (She loves sweets!)

Before I sign off on this Friday...I want to remind you of the treats we at Two Peas get to hand out as part of our Halloween event.  See my list of challenges and prize opportunities here, and don't forget our digital designers have whipped up these awesome freebies for you....

Have a happy and safe Halloween, friends!

Edited to add: Here are some of the other KI items in the store:

These sticker sheets are an awesome supplement to the calendar pages.  Love the scripty fonts!

Hot Products at Two Peas 10.26.2010

Stepping in for Kitty this week...it was fun for me to see what everyone is buying and show it off!  There are some cool things in the "What's Hot" section - you Peas have good taste!  I've attached some member projects that I've seen pop up in the gallery using these products in case that's helpful.  A couple of them I referenced in the video:

Shimelle's Trinket Box - click here to see more and to watch her video!

Here is the book I mentioned by 4ft9inchcreator.  It was created by binding two trinket boxes together - clever, huh?!  Creating a shabby chic look would be a piece of cake with crackle paint by Ranger.

  

And here is an example of how the 7Gypsies tray could be used:

Love that Kerry has not limited her scrapbook to an actual book.  How cool would this be on a coffee table for family members to thumb through?

A layout using the Sunshine color mist from Studio Calico:

Lalala Love You by Kimberly Neddo.

And in case you missed it...this was a guest project from Kelly Goree for our Halloween event:

She used the Whoo-ligans line from Bo Bunny I mentioned in today's video.  Such a great spin on a banner with the use of houses, and I love that she placed the creatures and trick-or-treaters at the door of each house.

What do you think?  Is it helpful to have example projects listed?

Weekly Warehouse Walk 10.22.2010

Have you ever combined two words in your mind without thinking and then vocalized it - having it come out all wrong and funny-sounding?  Laughing at myself as I totally did this in today's video.  I'm just glad I didn't catch it or you might have seen how red my fair-skin face is capable of getting.  Heeehee!

"Twinsel"

It's kind of a cool word.

Martha Stewart Halloween Sale at Two Peas!

I've posted this on the Event blog for our SpookCraftular Halloween event, but in case you haven't seen it yet I'm putting it on my blog too (wouldn't want you to miss out on these savings! ).  We have Martha Stewart Halloween products on sale now!  Like I mention in the video, these products make party-planning and crafting a snap as many of them are kits.  

You'll want to hurry though, this sale ends Friday Oct. 22nd at 11:59 PM CST.  Ready? Set! Shop!

Our next online crop: Friday, November 5th

Mark your calendars and get ready for a fun night of chatting and scrapping!  The Garden Girls will kick off your weekend with hourly chats Friday evening on the Garden Girl message board, as well as challenges on their blog.  Challenges will be open through the weekend.  A perfect time to get ready for the holidays or just catch up on your scrapping!

Schedule:

6-7 pm: Challenges posted on the Garden Girl blog

7-8: Chat with Garden Girl Kandis Smith

8-9: Chat with Garden Girl Kelli Crowe

9-10: Chat with Garden Girl Shannon Tidwell

*Note: all times are in Central Standard Time

We hope you'll join us - see you then!

Question about how an online crop works?  Edited to add: Participating in an online crop is simple and fun!  Basically, there are two parts - chatting and scrapping.  You can take part in both or either!

A few of our designers, the Garden Girls, will be hosting hour-long "chats" tonight on the Garden Girl message board.  These chats will be about anything and everything.  When viewing a discussion, simply click "post reply" to chime in!

 Each Garden Girl will also be sharing challenges to jumpstart your scrapbooking that you can work on throughout the weekend.  When you create a project for a challenge, you can share it in our member gallery by clicking 'Upload New Project."  By submitting to a challenge you will be entered in a drawing where a winner will be sent a prize pack from Two Peas.  These challenges will be posted this evening and can be found on the Garden Girl blog.  See you then!

Good things on a Monday...

Lots of good stuff happening around here today!

Have you seen we have a handful of We R Scrapbook Pads at 50% off!  I've looked at these close-up on my warehouse walks and they have such cute designs!  Scoop 'em up while they're still here. :)  

The sale ends tonight at 11:59 PM CST.  

A new release of GG projects went up today - just a few of the great projects that went live:

  

I'm liking the way Jamie Waters used the floral Dear Lizzy paper...I'm going to need to put that in my cart!

And Jen Gallacher reminds me that a title does not need to go straight across - look at the way she stacked these letters to make a square within her grid design.

   

Erica Hernandez uses just a bit of patterned paper as a strip at the bottom - but just that tiny strip is so effective in the design of her page!  

And while I admit I could never be brave enough to have a lamb snack on my finger, I do find Chelsea's photo and page pretty precious.  Loving her title and the aged look of her page.

And one last thing I'm sure Peas will be happy about...our Maya Road ribbon is in the process of being cut by the yard and sold individually!

And, of course, there are new things happening every day with our Stamping and Halloween events!

Swing by my blog tomorrow to see what hot products are being sold in the store. smiley

A Two Peas Moment

There are days when we at the Two Peas warehouse/office trickle into work and find that we are dressed similar to each other, a lot of times multiple people at once, and it's usually that some of us are wearing the same color.  

Recently though, I was amazed at how similar in detail we've dressed alike!  For instance, Kristina and I did not just wear black, white, or grey - but a combination of all of them - all on the same day!  

And on another day, Tonya and Shari wore the exact same style sweater, dressed in the same color scheme!  *Enter creepy Twilight Zone music now*
