Ideas are sparking.

It's Monday.  Monday isn't usually the most favored day of the week, but around here, we happen to like this day.

Monday is our day for weekly meetings.

And in those meetings, we chat about ideas.  There is a buzz and energy in the room as everyone is passionate about their jobs.  About this company.  About making things better and bigger and more wonderful - all for you.  All for our Peas.

Today, ideas are sparking.  And we're moving forward with those ideas.

Happy Monday.

Inspired by the Peas: Art Journaling

I've always been drawn to the idea of keeping an art journal.  To me, it's a therapeutic craft that invites one to get messy and play with her supplies without analyzing what it looks like.  Here are the art journal pages from the Peas that have me so very inspired today:

     

The girls and I were just chatting at lunch about this cool kit that came in the store giving you all the tools in one place for creating a journal of your own.  Do you practice art journaling?  I'd love to see your projects in the gallery!

30 Days of Stamping & Cardmaking at Two Peas beginning April 1st

*Edited to add:  We're live!!!  See the event here!

We're springing into stamping and cardmaking this April, bringing you new projects and inspiration each day, all month!  

This is an event you won't want to miss as we've been making plans to bring you content to boost your creativity, partnering with the vendors whose product you love and the artists whose work you admire.  Here is what you'll find the event entails...all just for you and all for free!

- We're thrilled to have joining us special guests Tim Holtz, Ali Edwards, Rhonna Farrer, Jennifer McGuire, Claudine Hellmuth, Wendy Vecchi, Shari Carrol, and more!  Learn their tips and tricks and try them out for yourself.

-  You asked and we listened!  Our Garden Girls and guests have prepared a series of card sets showing you how to use one stamp multiple ways.

- Perhaps you aren't a stamper, but love to share cards with your loved ones - we will have a weekly focus on making cards without the use of stamps.

Stamping in scrapbooking.  Are you ready to use this craft and pair it with your photos and stories?  We're ready to show you our ideas!

-  And as always, there will be challenges + prizes thanks to our many generous sponsors!

I hope you'll join us April 1st in the Events section of Classes & Events(And nope, we're not pulling an April Fool's prank...;)

Two Peas turned 12!

Can you believe Two Peas in a Bucket is 12 years old?!  Last month we celebrated our birthday and since then we've put together a fun little video.  A video celebrating the story, the inspiration, the designers, the members, the products, the everyday life here...and the customers like you!!!  I take pride in coming to work here each day and our members are some of my favorite people.  

Hope you enjoy it! :)

If you are just learning of Two Peas in a Bucket, welcome!!  You can read more about our story here!

*Edited to add: The name of this song is "The Way It Is" by The New Kentucky Quarter.  Have a listen - they're friends!  

And Jeff and Kristina in the all-green-prom attire?  See this blog post from our birthday party in 2009!

Inspired by the Peas: Rainbows

With St. Patrick's Day tomorrow and the sighting of Celeste's cute page in the gallery today, I have rainbows on the brain.  Rainbows themselves, and even rainbows of color...I dug a little further and found all of these inspiring projects in the gallery.  Check them out!

      

        

       

Have you used rainbows or rainbows of color in your projects? Link them below - I would love to see!  And if not, who's with me?  Let's put a rainbow on our next project together!

I've related some products in the Two Peas store below - check them out if you are so inclined. :)

p.s. Did you hear my friend Jack in today's video? Or perhaps see him?  He was on a rolling desk chair "driving" the perimeter of the aisles.  When he saw we were about to begin the video he said he would go "park his car." :)

Inspired by the Peas: Polaroids

Polaroids on projects have me inspired lately (did you see Nichol's Start to Finish layout video today?) - and I've loved seeing the different ways our community has used them!  I've seen you not only scrap actual polaroid photos, but stamp them, scan them, cut them out of cardstock...and the list goes on!  Here are just a few that caught my eye:

   

   

  

    

   

I've also related some products below that can help you give the polaroid look!  Have you used this photo-fun element in your projects?  Leave a link below - I'd love to see! :)
