This girl...

loves hot new products at Two Peas just as much as her latest fashion finds and a fresh stack of photos.  You'll spot her in our ad series in Creating Keepsakes magazine, beginning with their most recent issue - the September issue!  

We can't wait for you to learn her story as more and more of our ads are published.

How many of you spotted her in the latest CK?

Hot Products at Two Peas 9.21.2010


So someone...who shall remain nameless...(okay, I'll admit - it was me!!)...clicked a button and poor Kitty's first video ended abruptly, thus, we have two videos.  This may come as a surprise to you, but we don't rehearse these videos. wink Ah well, it makes for a fun introduction in her second video anyway.   We appreciate you bearing with and going with the flow!

Pea1's birthday challenge!

Today is the birthday of someone very special to Two Peas, and very special to me!

It's the birthday of Co-founder, Creative Director, Buyer, General Manager & Pretty-Much-the-Woman-Who-Makes-It-All-Happen's birthday today, and I want to invite you to celebrate with me.

How can you help me celebrate?  By scraplifting one of Kristina's layouts!  Here is how it will work:

* Go to her gallery and pick a project to scraplift.  Your project can be traditional, digital, or hybrid.

* Leave her a comment on the layout you're scraplifting...telling her what you liked about it, that your scraplifting it in celebration of her birthday, etc.  Anything you'd like to let her know how she's inspired you!

*Upload your project by Thursday, September 23rd.  Be sure to check the "Pea1's birthday challenge" box under "member challenges" so that I receive your entry.

I will post the winning challenge entry here on my blog on the 24th.  I have something special just for the winner...but I'm not telling yet, it's a surprise! smiley

Have fun - I know Kristina will love to see how her projects have inspired you.

Our Owl has a name...

Wow...we had some clever suggestions for our owl.  It was hard to choose and so I asked our warehouse staff to help me pick a name.  Here is Tonya with the winner...

Hootbert it is!  Thank you for the suggestion, Scrappinsher.  A prize pack sponsored by Sassafras will be on its way to you shortly!! Please make sure the address in the "my account > edit my account" section is up to date to ensure it reaches you.

Name the owl!

It's only day 3 of our Back to School event, and already I'm having a blast...the highlight of my morning here at my desk is publishing another new addition to the event!

I'm curious to know...what do you think of the projects so far?  And what do you think of that little owl you've spotted in the graphics and on the badge?  Cute, yes!?  It's from one of the digital kits we sell in the store - part of the Fall Jamboree collection by Jen Allyson!

We wanted to push the school theme and make sure this owl looked especially wise, so our graphics guy Jerome added some Harry Potter glasses to the bird.  Nice addition, don't you think?

There's just one thing missing in my opinion.  This owl needs a name.  Something serious and suitable for a bird filled with knowledge.

I want your help in naming the owl - leave a comment here with a suggestion, I'll pick a name this Friday morning and send a prize to the winning name-giver!  Have fun!

I am very excited as this is not only going to be a very fun class - but it is the first featuring our new homepage - our future events will all have a page similar to this one! The page will grow as more content is added - new lessons, guest projects, etc. AND we've created a blog dedicated to our events where each new blog post is imported into the event homepage.

Have you checked out Jen's altered memo board!?  Very cool.  Be sure to check back as there will be new posts daily!

Two Peas Moment: Baked Goods-ness

 

If you were to step into the Two Peas warehouse, walk past the file cabinets packed with stickers, round the corner past the paper aisles and enter the kitchen, odds are you'll find (in a very special section of counter-space) baked goods and treats.  On this particular day, I was pretty pumped to learn Kristina brought in her scrumptious lemon bars!  Yummm.  

Jamie (the other Jamie!) is an excellent baker as well, although many at Two Peas are super kind and generous to pass around the treats.  I don't bake, so I stick to bringing in chocolate. wink

And people.  Let's be real.  The size of my lemon bar does not reflect whatsoever the tastiness of this treat.  I could have had one three times the size, but I thought that might not be appreciated by the others partaking.

Back to School at Two Peas

Back-to-school talk is one of the main themes of conversation here at the Two Peas warehouse this morning as many of the staff members have kids starting school today.  It's the perfect time to announce our next event!

Each week will feature:

* a NEW lesson from one of our Garden Girls, including a pdf with instructions and a discussion thread led by the instructor on the Education message board (projects by Jen Gallacher, Stacey Sattler & Kelli Crowe - you'll be thrilled when you see what they have up their sleeves!)

* photography tips from the Garden Girls (photos by Caroline Ikeji, Jamie Waters & Margie Scherschligt - these master picture-takers will give you a fresh perspective behind the lens!)

* guest designers and projects (you know those members whose work you often find yourself bookmarking? we've asked a few of them to share their creativity with us by giving their tips and never-before-seen projects!)

* daily inspiration (we've been collecting just the kinds of things we think will get your creative wheels turning!)  

* challenges and prizes (of course!)

I hope you'll join us!  Keep an eye out here on my blog for more news on the event!
