Some of these you may recognize if you follow me on Instagr.am and/or Twitter, but here are some peeks into my days here at the office. :)

  

coming and going.  event challenge prizes.  jamie's kick-butt raspberry pie.

BFF's.  The boys.  Talking geek stuff.  Evening silhouette.

Peonies and chocolate on our desks.  Matt.  Polka dots and tunes.

      

Doodles on a personal, outgoing box.  Do you think they'd let me doodle on your orders??  So fun!  

Speaking of doodling, Kristina creating a chalkboard masterpiece.

  

Our new sign being hung on our new building.  A thoughtful card from a thoughtful Pea.  Office attire.

     

A bouquet from Kristina after a bad day. :)  A messy desk.  Love it when Kristina shares her art journal with me.

We have news to deliver. :)

Dear friends...

Yep, that's right.  We've added this amazing talent to our Garden Girl design team.  Five more women - Jaime Warren, Jill Sprott, Jen Chesnick, Lynn Ghahary and Wendy Anderson - to bring you their expert design work with each Monday release, as well as special events and classes throughout the year!  

Get to know them this week; each day we'll learn more about them on the Garden Girl blog.  Be sure to give them a warm welcome and leave them some love on their debut work over in the Design Team section.  Yay for Garden Girls and creative goodness! :)

Two Peas in Creating Keepsakes Magazine

Did you by any chance spot our latest ad?  Full of eye candy, isn't it?  It's not surprising with her love for color (and color blocking) that Kristina was the artist behind the composition:

We heard from many of you on Facebook that this ad caught your eye; some of you asked for a list of the products pictured.  Kristina created this list for you naming the items, collections and manufacturers.  I'll also be sure to relate the products for you below in case that makes shopping easier for you. :)

*     Flag pins - Pink Paislee/House of Three

*     Cloud, bike, sun, green border at the bottom - Summer Days collection - Echo Park

*     Buttons - Cosmo Cricket

*     Phone sticker - Peachy Keen - American Crafts

*     Ray of sunshine, map & green label stickers are Countryside - Studio Calico

*     Blue cloud - Sassafras

*     Blue dotted chipboard label & blue "I heart" blank tile - Chipboard Essentials - Bella Blvd

*     Blue swirl die-cut - Beach Babe - Fancy Pants

*     Pins - Webster's Pages

*    Pink rose - Prima

*     Acrylic/plastic roses - Donna Downey/Prima

*     Accordion rosette with button - Delights - American Crafts

*     Pink card at the bottom left - individual cards and envelopes - Doodlebug

*     Sticker with roses & label with bike - 5& Dime - October Afternoon

*     Tree stamp - Memory Box

*     Twine - Divine Twine

*     Green tree - 3D stickers - Pebbles

I think that covers it!  

Have a great weekend, Peas.  For our friends in the US, have a happy 4th of July! :)
