I’m sad to report, but I’m taking the loss of Two Peas In A Bucket VERY personally.
I have long considered it my go to source for all things scrapbooking, be it inspiration, news, supplies, education… I was a loyal pea. I spent 95% of my scrapbooking budget (and 60% of my grocery budget) at Two Peas. I watched EVERY video, some twice, but nearly always on the day they were released. I, in a weird online creeper kinda way, considered most of the garden girls as long distance friends. So many of them I admired greatly and found myself giddy when their new video went live. I’ll admit it, sometimes when the video was over, I would take a deep breath and catch myself exhaling with “I wish I were you”… I know. #intervention
In addition to all that creepiness, Two Peas was, in my eyes, a boutique shop. A well curated collection of the most current and coveted items. And, as it should be, the garden girl videos reflected that. Videos were infused with all the newest products and mind blowing techniques. Call me a paper snob, but I don’t want to be inundated with products and projects from manufacturers and designers that I wouldn’t use and don’t want to emulate. Cutting through the crap (and the granny supplies) and getting to the meat of the industry was of HUGE value to me.
So now, I’m an internet gypsy. A hobo. I’m homeless and feeling so very lost. It’s with a sad heart that I look for new spots to hang out and find inspiration. Studio Calico is a natural spot to gather, but short of writing my congressman, I don’t know how to convey to them the importance of regular videos. From a perspective of loyalty, marketing and sales, I implore them (and other sites) to fill the internet void left by Two Peas in terms of high quality expert videos. Not load, not haul, not warehouse walk, but garden girl-esqu magic. Please. Pretty please…
With that, here’s a layout. Made with only the most cutting edge and high quality products available on the market, duh. Because I’m a snob like that.
Three cheers to anyone who can spot the hidden cat hair. Ay, do I spy a new weekly series?! #spotthecathair
