Guess Where I was This Weekend

After a 9.5 hour to drive to Dallas last Friday (Em got a lot of quality bonding time with mom), we grabbed rest of the family and headed to Waco to watch Payne perform in SING with his fraternity, KOT. They came in a contested second and Payne was great, front row- Proud Momma!
Payne and his adorable girlfriend, Sydney.

I so need to stand up straight!

KOT 2015 Sing Performance- Far right is Payne

We had some time to kill on Saturday so I made the boys go with me to my latest obsession...

I went to Chip & Joanna Gaines store, Magnolia in Waco. For those of you who haven't watched there show Fixer Upper on HGTV on Tuesdays you are in for a treat. They take the most run down homes in Waco and turn them into a dream home. The store, Magnolia, is small, really small and there were so many people there on a cold rainy Saturday. It was definitely a destination shop and it was fun to see everyone's excitement.  

Guess what? A couple of the decorating items at the Magnolia store were also items that can be found at Paper Crown . In addition, the Summer Ellis,  jewelry line at Magnolia has been at Paper Crown for a couple of years- I guess we were trendy and didn't even know it ; )

New display pieces from Magnolia

Thank you for indulging me. This post had very little about the store. We will once again try and out last the snow this week. The store is all new and I think some more goodies should be arriving before the snow!

February Sale postponed until 3/6 &7/15

Due to the crazy weather predicted the next few days and the store being closed on Saturday, February 28th, we will just postpone the Tubba Sale until the following weekend, March 6 & 7th. As I've been putting out new items and flipping the store, I've been adding to my sale pile so this sale will be a good one- just a week later.

Might be a good time to go over our inclement weather policy, if the OKCPS are closed, chances are great that we will be also- or at least opening later. I stayed too late on Monday and got stuck going home- not fun at all. If the elderly man who thought it was hilarious that I was stuck at the intersection of Western and 63rd ever comes into the store, he will be covered in glitter ; ) If in doubt please call the store first. Thanks

Easter House Class Tonight- Closed Saturday

The weather has held and the Easter House class will go on tonight as planned- yippee! However this weekend might be a different story. Nevertheless, we will be closed this Saturday, February 28th.
 Mom duty calls for myself- and all of my helpers so if you are needing something to work on this weekend, today and tomorrow are your days. Although we will be closed on Saturday, you can still call and enroll in classes or retreats.

 Don't forget, early bird registration for Spring Glitter Retreat ends on Saturday so don't miss out on a substantial savings and the retreat!

Store is almost all new with lots of new products for your spring creations!

It's that time where the backroom becomes the front room and we are busy trying to make room for all the new lines and products. Not done by any means but some headway was made yesterday. Stop by this weekend to check out all the new. Today we will be checking in a big box of Tim Holtz goodies and a new line to Paper Crown.


A bunco group came in Tuesday night for a quick class. We had a good time playing with the Character Construction stamps. It was a Jackie inspired class- I just changed the seasons.
Don't forget to sign up for the great classes coming up, several are close to being full. Thank you everyone for supporting Krystal at her first class at Paper Crown. We only have 2 spots open for the brush calligraphy class! 
 Thank you also for your huge support for Paper Crown Glitter Retreat, only 4 days into registration and we are at the half way mark. Don't delay!
