Farewell, Two Peas…

two peas in a bucket

The scrapbooking industry has seen many doors close over the last 6+ years.  It always breaks my heart to see independent owners close doors to something that changed an industry.  Two Peas in a Bucket is no exception.  This scrapbooking giant was THE place to be in the early days.  It’s where I purchased more paper than I wish to acknowledge!  I have been a Pea since 2000 – the early days.

Back in the day, where I lived, there was only Michaels and AC Moore.  And neither carried anything worthwhile at that time.  As a serious scrapbooker, if I wanted anything of quality I had to shop online.  There just wasn’t any other option for me in New York at the time, or the thousands around me. 

I began my online paper crafting bug in 1999 with The Scrapbooking Network, an online site that developed many friendships I still have to this day!  That led me to 2 Peas, a new online site that came about in ‘99.  It was a cool place to hang out, with an even more impressive array of the trendiest paper crafting supplies.

As will all things, as I grew in a new direction – card making and a stampin’ up demonstrator in 2002, I left a few things behind.  I still frequented the Two Peas garden from time to time, but we all move on.

I’ll never forget this amazing online site.  The amount of inspiration from the products, projects, videos and talented scrapbookers and yes, some stampers too!  It helped nourish my craft, and I’m forever grateful to Kristina and Jeffrey – the husband and wife team that opened and ran this amazing company for 15 years.  They gave me a place to shop, show off my creative juices and find a loving community.

They are closing their doors and taking the inspirational garden site offline July 10th.  There’s a huge sale 30-75% off.  Take a look at the store here, get some great deals while you can and say good bye to a scrapbooking giant.

Thank you Two Peas in a Bucket…you will be greatly missed!
