Special visitor to SG!

Several times in the past, I've mentioned the mega-thread on the Two Peas in a Bucket message board that has helped transform our Super Sketch Club into an international success. On Wednesday, we had the pleasure of meeting Leslie, the Texas gal who started the thread's conversation and in the process, helped make Scrapbook Generation and its products known far beyond the Springfield area!

Leslie started the thread in March of 2011, and it's still going strong more than a year later, with over 155,000 views and 4,153 comments as of this morning. No other conversation on Two Peas even comes close! Other message boards like Creating Keepsakes, Willow Traders, and Scrap Buddies also mention us frequently, but this single thread on Two Peas has taken on a life of its own. We've met many new friends because of it.

This week, Leslie and her mom and young son vacationed in Branson, and took the time to stop by SG on their way home. Leslie is like all the other Peas we've met in person -- very nice, easy to talk to, pleasant, and fun! It was really a treat for us to get to meet her and tell her in "real life" how much we appreciated what her post has done for our business.

She's very modest about it all, and I know she didn't foresee what has happened because we didn't either, but it HAS happened, and we're so grateful! Thanks, Leslie, for making time on your vacation to stop by and meet us!

The Peas can rest assured that Leslie got to meet The Hoff. We've been taking good care of him since the retreats!

Hi Leslie and Mom! It is nice to 'meet' you!

I am sure this was a nice visit for you and for the SG staff!

Hugs to you all!

It was the two peas super thread that introduced me to SG and Allison all the way over here in Sweden. Thanks for that.
