Time for Ghosts & Goblins- Halloween Classes

With the cooler- hopefully- weather comes one of my favorite holidays, Halloween. To get you ready for all those little ghosts & goblins, we have a couple of Halloween classes that are a trick , not a treat.


 
Halloween Bird
Thurs., Oct 4th
6-9
Jenn, $45
 
If you loved Jenn's Animal Lulette class (we still have a few openings for next Sat., Sept. 29th class from 11-4) then you will love this Halloween bird. We hope you can join us for this fun evening!
 
 
 
 
Mixed Media Canvas with
Colorfly Studio
Sat., Oct. 13th
11-3
$45, Jen DeDonato*
 
When I saw Jen's work I knew I wanted her to teach at the store. I fell in love with her " shoe pieces" and she added this Halloween twist to her signature style. If you have wanted to try mixed media here is your chance. Check out Jen's artwork on instagram @ colorflystudio.

Just Like Home



It was just what I needed to help make the Waco store feel like home....a visit, class, goodies & treats from Jackie.


As those of you who have followed the blog know, Jackie has been our teacher extraordinaire for 12 years at Paper Crown. She has taught 100s of classes, made 100s of adorable name tags & baked 100s of Jackie treats. She was my very own guardian angel and I was thrilled to have her teach in Waco last week.






 


Last spring our good friend Becky introduced us to punch needle and Jackie quickly became an expert and made it her own. It was a perfect choice for her first class here in Waco, especially since Paper Crown will be carrying Jackie's original patterns.



We had a great group of ladies from OKC, Dallas/ Ft. Worth, Waco, Houston and even our favorite Georgia peach made her 1st trip to Waco. Thank you ladies for making the drive to Paper Crown. I love that we are beginning to have a few regulars and I look forward to the next few months of classes.



Thank you again Jackie for making the drive to Waco. It was just what I needed and I hope we can twist your arm to make the trek a couple of times a year- PLEASE!!

If you missed Jackie's class, we have all her punch needle patterns at the store and you can order them by calling the store at 254 224-7436.



Store flip is almost complete, so stop by if you haven't seen the new fall lines.

Thanks Jackie for the pictures- what am I going to do!

Good Grief Girdie & Sale



The incredibly talented Jackie Peters aka Good Grief Girdie will be teaching at Paper Crown next Thursday, Sept. 6th from 6-9. Cost is $55 and includes pattern, thread and instruction. Please bring with you your punch needle and embroidery hoop ( Jackie uses the Ultra Punch and 7" Morgan gripping embroidery hoop. Both will be available to purchase at Paper Crown if needed.)  Jackie's talents are endless but her latest passion is punch needle and not only will she be teaching it, but we will be making one of Jackie's original designs. When we first started punch needling it was hard to find cute patterns.  Jackie has taken care of that and designed 6 of her own which will be available at Paper Crown.



For the 12 years Paper Crown was in Oklahoma City, Jackie was my main teacher, dresser of Girdie (our store mannequin), and right hand gal in all things Paper Crown. It does feel strange not to see her every week and that is why I'm over the moon to have her travel to Waco.

 
 
If you are not familiar with Jackie's work, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy looking at her blog, http://goodgriefgirdie.typepad.com/. I guarantee you will be inspired.





There are only a couple of spaces available in Jackie's class. Call Paper Crown at 254 224-7436 to reserve your spot. Jackie's classes are an event and I promise you will leave wanting more.

 
Don't Forget!

 
Only happens twice a year!
 
Friday 10-5:30
Saturday 10-4 
 ( yes, my store hours will vary during football season.
Sic 'em Bears!)

Who Doesn't LOVE a Great Sale



It's a favorite time of year for Paper Crown girls, 40% off Sale this weekend, Fri., Aug. 31st & Sat , Sept. 1. Twice a year I discount almost everything in the store 40 % off to clear out one season and make room for the new. In addition to the 40% off, I will have a table with 10 cent paper. The girls loved this in OKC and I have a feeling TX will not be any different. Store hours are 10-5:30 on Friday and 10-4 on Saturday ( We will close at 4 on game days- I finally get to be a consistent Baylor Bear fan- sic'em! )

Hope to see you this weekend!
 
A very special treat is headed our way next week,
 more on this fun event soon.
 
You won't want to miss it!
