Two Peas...Questions, Questions

If you've emailed me in the last day or so, I'm reading (promise) but I don't think I can answer every single one. Thank you so much for your kind words and stories - I appreciate them! I thought I'd address some of the questions I've seen over and over here:

Two Peas Class:  I realize that many of you bought the Scrapbooking Family Vacations class with the expectation that it would be there forever. So did I! And then scrapbook life made alternate plans. I really want to get the videos out there so that you can replay them for years to come. Thing is, as of right now Two Peas owns the copyright and I don't have a copy of them. I realize that was a big mistake on my part. I'm trying to work on this and I'll keep you updated if/when this changes.  

Future Classes:  I have been fleshing out a design class for some time now. It's something I've always wanted to teach. The outline is done, the text is just about finished and now I just have to find a home to launch it.  The one thing that I discovered over that past three years at  Two Peas is that I love to teach almost as much as I love to make things!

Videos: I am keeping my fingers crossed that the YouTube channel stays up. I will be working on copying all of my videos this weekend and uploading them to my YouTube channel in the near future. Subscribe if you'd like to get a notice when they go up.

Where I'm At:  Right here! I plan to keep this blog updated. I've really slacked off in the past few months trading blogging for a new love - Instagram. You can find my work at Scraptastic and Simple Stories.  Also, I will be uploading all of my 2014 projects to one gallery at Studio Calico here.

Thank you so much for all of your support and messages. Two Peas was an amazing ride and I'm forever grateful for the experience.

Two Peas Farewell

Seems so wrong to see this here. How can it be that Two Peas will soon no longer be? It's truly the end of an era. I've been around since the day they first opened 15 years ago. I had a weird fascination with these stickers of bald little babies (Bryce & Madeline, anyone?) and Two Peas was the only place that carried them.

Years later, it was Two Peas that pulled me out of a creative funk. It was something to look forward to, escape to, aspire to. Becoming a Garden Girl was one of the most out-of-the-blue things that has ever happened to me. It wasn't a design team you could apply or and we jokingly compared it to the mafia - you don't find them, they find you. I've learned so much about design, technology, video and teaching over the years. Two Peas pushed me creatively, fed my story-loving soul. I will always be grateful for the opportunities that came from being a Garden Girl and most of all for allowing me to share my story and ideas with kindred spirits.

Nothing good or bad stays the same. Today it was the good.
