Since the beginning of the year, I have been busy designing, painting and retouching a lot of new art for another artwork challenge. I love to participate in Minted’s art challenges because they help me keep my creative fuel flowing. Being part of the Minted community is really about personal development and the freedom to design what you want. In this challenge, Minted is partnering with West Elm and both stores will select winning art prints. It seems like 2017 is putting me into a beautiful watercolor mood. So here are a couple of watercolor pieces that I am entering into the competition this weekend. Do you think you can choose a favorite? Vote for us here.
Make sure you visit minted in February and vote for Trendy Peas. And if you are a designer and would like to join the fun, click here to see how. While there is still time to enter, you have to hurry because design submission ends Tuesday the 31st!

What is better than Friday? A Friday giveaway, off course. We just came up with a few new designs for our pillow collection, so I want to give one lucky winner a brand new soft and durable 18×18″ pillow. It is super easy to participate in our pillow giveaway.
Kind of easy, right?
The winner will be able to choose one design from our pillow collection. This giveaway is valid worldwide. So go on and enjoy! Winner will be announced next Friday, April 8th.
Have you seen our new pillows? We’ve been busy these past weeks creating new and fun pillows for the home collection. The funny thing is that whenever we finish designing a new product exclusively for the home collection, we end it up finding many more uses for that particular product. For the new designs below, I was targeting the modern-looking living room with colorful wall art on the walls. But these three pillows could easily be playful in the playroom, or they could be elegant in the unique nursery, or they could also be very chic in a not-so-chic guest room. The new pillows are modern-looking and oh, so fresh. They can easily be paired together on a couch or they could stand out on their own.
We have another photoshoot scheduled for the end of this week. As soon as we have more product shots we will list these items on the shop. Check back soon. And to see what we already have in store for the home collection, visit here.
We have two monochrome wallpaper designs ready for the modern home. Simple lines and lots of contrast make these two beautiful designs easy to adapt to any home because they won’t overshadow colorful artwork, or a patterned rug, or, you get the idea… I am really happy with how these two designs turned out. I think I will be using the Hive design for my half bath when I get ready to remodel that tiny teeny space. What do you think?
Today we have to talk about three little things:
1:: NEW COLLECTION
