So Long, Two Peas . . . You Were Like Family To Me :(



As I explained (at great length) in THIS POST, Two Peas in a Bucket online store and message boards are closing. My understanding is that all content, classes, badges, etc. will cease to exist beyond 07-10-14.

So, for posterity’s sake, here is my Two Peas profile:

PeaBoard Title: “Don’t Stop Believin’”

As you can see, I was a member of the Two Peas community for over 6 years. Since I work from home on the computer all day, I’ve had easy, daily access to the board for all of that time – as my 12,538 posts show, LOL! {Don’t hate}.

When you work from home, you miss the daily chit-chat with co-workers and friends at work. And if you love scrapbooking as much as I do, you look for a message board where you can talk about your Scrapbook Obsession with other crazy fanatics from all over the world.

Then you get sucked in to the NSBR (non-scrapbook related) side of things, when you learn all kinds of things from all kinds of women, get into political debates, ask questions you want real-life answers to, get your daily news, and keep up on all things pop culture.

You can also see that I never posted a single solitary thing to the Two Peas gallery. I’m surprised they didn’t kick me out. The gallery is a BIG deal to the Peas.

Here are some of the badges I earned:

When I say Two Peas was like family to me, this is what I mean:

I was attached and had ties there so long and strong that even when I wanted to break up the relationship, I couldn’t.

Two Peas brought me such joy at times that I couldn’t wait to spend time with it, but it also brought me such pain and sadness that I would avoid it for weeks.

Two Peas NSBR – like an older sister – knows how to push my buttons and make me so freakin’ angry I could spit . . . but I loved it at the same time because it made me consider things from other perspectives, strengthening my views on some topics and completely changing my views on others.

Like family, Two Peas was just a constant in my life that I never planned to turn my back on. Our relationship ebbed and flowed over the years.

But now it’s done :(

Two Peas: I love you, I hate you, I like you, I’ll miss you.

Family forever . . .

No hard feelings. I wish you the best.

    I don’t know if you have been told of the new NSBR site or not. It was started up because so many of us really enjoyed the group of people and were not ready to let it go. The new site is located at:

    http://2peasrefugees.boards.net

    In just a short amount of time, and spreading by word of mouth, Facebook, and email there are already almost 1,900 members back together. I hope to see you over there, Journey Fan, and you too, Jennifer Rogers! And let anyone else that you can think of know of the new site. Everybody is welcome!
