All-weekend Online Crop: March 11th-13th

Mark your calendars and get ready for a fun weekend of chatting and scrapping!  March 11th-13th there will be a chat hosted each day by a Garden Girl on the Garden Girl message board, as well as challenges to get you inspired on their blog.  As always, you'll earn a badge when you participate and there will be drawings with opportunities to win prizes sponsored by Two Peas!  Challenges will be open for  a week from the date they are posted.  

Consider it an invitation to connect with members who love this hobby as much as you do, while making progress on the projects you've been wanting to create!

Here is the chat schedule:

Friday, March 11th - 1-2 PM CST chat with Garden Girl Caroline Ikeji

Saturday, March 12th - 10-11 AM CST chat with Garden Girl Lisa Truesdell

Sunday, March 13th - 1-2 PM CST chat with Garden Girl Margie Scherschligt

 

Question about how an online crop works? 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" on the Garden Girl message board.  These chats are about anything and everything.  You'll see the title of a thread will say something like "6 pm chat w/ Garden Girl ____ here!"  Click on the thread to view the chat, click 'post reply' when you want to chime in, and keep clicking that refresh button to see the latest response as the Peas are a chatty bunch!

 Each Garden Girl will also be sharing challenges to jumpstart your scrapbooking that you can work on throughout the week.  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 that Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and can be found on the Garden Girl blog.

I hope to see you then, Peas!

Two Peas News: New shopping feature

We have a new way to search in the shopping section that I think you're going to love!  Do you have your eye on a particular collection made by a favorite brand?  No more typing it in the search box - we're saving you time with a click of a button! We've added this search filter in the shopping area for you.  

Here is a little video I put together introducing how to how to navigate this area:

This area of the store is constantly evolving as we add product information into our system and as graphics are available to us from the manufacturer.  Our team is working hard to give you all the information you need regarding the products we carry!  Thanks for your patience as we work hard to log that information in.

I hope you're as excited about this new way of searching as I am! 

Edited to add** Our tech guys have just let us know we've put in place yet another feature helpful when shopping!  Now, if we're running low on an item we'll let you know.  Here is an example:

Meet Lainie

Over the past few weeks I've had the privilege of getting to know Lainie, our new customer service rep, as we share an office together.  Lainie is so easy to work with; she's eager to learn and genuinely loves offering her assistance!  Now when you hear her friendly voice over the phone or get a reply to a support ticket. you'll have a face with the name.  Today happens to be her birthday and I would love for you to join me in wishing my office buddy a very, very happy birthday!

 

Happy Birthday, Lainie!  We're so lucky to have you on the Two Peas team!!!

A Two Peas Moment: Helpers

Madison schools are closed and so we have a few silly kiddos hanging around the warehouse today, giggling and "helping."

While orders are being pulled, a very goofy Halle and Maddie are getting the boxes ready for orders to be packed.  

They think it's hilarious that they've blocked themselves in!

Between this and putting random objects like hand sanitizer in recycled boxes and delivering them as "Christmas presents" it's been a very entertaining day.

A Two Peas Moment: Tempting

I share an office with our customer service rep, Lainie (side note: she's wonderful, isn't she!?), and she recently brought in this cute, cute dish for holding the chocolate that sits in the middle of our pushed-together desks.  Chocolate is tempting in and of itself, but when displayed in a shiny, pretty thing - even more tempting for me!

A frequent Two Peas moment is the digging for something sweet around here after lunch.  After the addition of our pretty dish holding yummy chocolate I have a feeling we might have a few more visitors in our office. ;)

Hot Products at Two Peas Video 2.1.2011

 

2 things:

1) Kitty and her cute, wacky hat crack me up.

2) I wish I could blame the blizzard-ly winds on dropping the camera.  

Unfortunately, that was just me being clumsy, lol.  Sorry for the camera shake!
