if you expressed an interest in the class but have yet to confirm the date, you aren't signed up. If you would like to take the class, please call Paper Crown ( there a couple of you)
 
Class size is limited to 12

* White or light colored (light grey, beige, light tan) shoes/caps work best.  Your shoes/cap should be canvas or a natural material if possible.  If your shoes have laces, decide if you want the laces marbled (if you want the laces marbled then the tongue of the shoe will not be completely marbled).  If not, please leave the laces at home.  Please put your name on the bottom of each shoe or inside the ball cap using a permanent marker (a piece of paper inside the cap headband will make sure the permanent marker doesn't bleed through).  Natural materials tend to shrink a bit so get a loose fitting pair of shoes or an adjustable cap (I will be stuffing the shoes with newspaper once they are wet to help them retain their shape) .  Please email Chris at cmackok@gmail.com if you have any questions.
 
 

 
 Holiday Watercolor Class

Our Happy Place!

This week has gotten away from me. I think we had such a fun weekend with dear friends I really didn't want it to end! Although it's a little overdue, I just want to thank everyone who was at the store this weekend for Jenn's Holiday doll classes. What a great time of creating and connecting we all had. If I could describe a perfect Paper Crown weekend that would have been it, minus the flooding basement : )






We had ladies fly in from WA, CA and lots of drivers from TX. Thank you for taking the time and expense to join us. We loved having each and everyone of you at our " happy place."
 
love those bloomers
 
Where are you Lisa?

Adorable!


We turned Jenn's Holiday girl into the yummiest cookies!

We had a great time rolling and laughing over these little aliens Friday and Saturday night.



Her braided bun was adorable


Love that they were all similar but had everyone's unique touch. It was a talented room this weekend

 
 
Thank you Stephanie for flying in to take class and sharing your new book, " Faith Journaling for the Inspired Artist" and all your new fun Documented Faith products.
 We love you and you are always welcome!

Kool Kicks!


Our expert marbler, Chris Mack, has offered to teach this unique class if there is an interest. This summer Chris learned how to marble "Converse type" canvas tennis shoes. You could also do slip-ons, Tom's or a plain canvas baseball cap. These would make such a special and unique Christmas present. Once we determine how many are interested, we will come up with a date that hopefully works with everyone. Your project will need to be at the store a few days before the class to prepare it for marbling.

If you have never marbled with Chris it is such a fun, fun class! Call Paper Crown at 405 848-2389 if interested.

Glitter Market


A huge thank you to all the talented vendors, who traveled near and far, and our loyal customers who got up very early on a chilly Saturday morning to support our local artists. I think we had the biggest variety of items this year: all so very unique and a little bit of something for everyone.

A few of our early birds who have continually been first in line year after year- we thank you for your support-
 Ya'll are the BEST!


We had 5 new vendors this year and it was exciting to have some fresh new items to our mix of goods. A special thank you to all the vendors that traveled from out of town to attend. Jone is think you get the prize for the furthest.

Adorable snowmen from Bobbie

Beautiful carvings from Kim Barnes

Queen of marbling and one of the nicest people around, Chris Mack

Terri always has the best estate sale treasures ( I love my book! )



I have always loved tiny things and Jone's booth was just mesmerizing. The detail was out of this world. Jone thank you again for making the long drive from Santa Fe. I hope our paths cross again just soon.

Cindy is was a pleasure to FINALLY meet you! Your paintings are whimsical wonderfulness!I look forward to many creative adventures with you. Maggie says sorry!
It was so fun to have Tessa here with her embroidery kits. I can't wait to start mine - I have two to do by March.
Angie you must have pulled some all nighters but it was sure worth it. Love your creative spirit! 
Charlotte it is always a joy and full of laughter to have you in the house. We wish you a speedy recovery so you can get back to what you love!  It may have only been 10 pieces but they were gorgeous!

Oh this green jacket....I'm still thinking! 

This fun mask is going to Katie's classroom for their Winter Party.





All I can say is you must never ever sleep. The amount of art created this year was amazing and it was all so detailed and perfect. Thank you for being a GM vendor every year. You have made GM what it is and we all thank you!



 A special thank you to Jenn. She will be driving up two weekends in a row. If you missed Jenn and her wonderful goodies last weekend, you are in luck. She will be here this weekend to teach two of her doll classes ( info in previous post) and if the week works out, she might bring some more goodies and maybe some of Cindy's ( keep your fingers crossed!)

Not only is Jenn a talented artist but also a great mom, her son Jake who is a senior was recognized as an AP Scholar with Distinction. Congrats to both of you- we all know there was much encouragement and training in that award.  
 
 
I think I missed few booths and I apologize. I always promise to take more pictures the next year but instead running around like a crazy girl on Saturday morning.
 
 I am in awe and inspired but all of your talent and am so very glad you joined us for a weekend of friends & art ( thanks Angie! ) Much love to you all!
