Retreat Ladies

It's just a few short days til the Paper Crown Fall Glitter Retreat. Just a couple of quick reminders.
Festivities begin Thursday, Oct 1 evening at 5:30 pm at the store. We will be having  shop, swap and appetizers from 5:30- 7. We have a fun evening of meeting new friends, tasty treats, shopping  ( with a 20% discount) and our first swap, the purse swap.

Classes will begin on Friday and breakfast will be served at 9:00 with class beginning at 9:30. WE will all have lunch together on Friday- dutch treat- and then travel to some of our favorite spots before a second class and dinner at the store on Friday.

Saturday you can sleep in a tad, breakfast will be served at 9:30 and class begins at 10. Lunch will be served at the store and we will then conclude with our last class.

What do I bring- basic kit- scissors large and small, pencil, ruler, adhesive- your favorite for paper and glue gun and extra glue sticks. Three of our projects will use a glue gun so please don't forget. You might also want to bring a paint shirt for Saturday; hate to get paint on a favorite outfit.

We were hoping for a few cool fall weekend but it looks like it will be cooler but still in the low 80s. Two of our meals will be upstairs in the Paper Attic. It is not air conditioned upstairs but we will have it blowing like crazy downstairs and fans going. Probably best to dress in layers. Some of you will want an extra layer in the classroom but want to shed a layer for our meals.

We are all excited for this weekend and can not wait to CREATE SOME MAGIC with you!

Safe travel for those of you coming outside OKC and Thelma and Marlene traveling all the way from Canada- maybe you could bring a cool breeze!

Just In

Didn't want you to miss out on all the new products that have come in the past few days. The markers
will go quickly.

Busy as Bees






We are all busy as bees around the store- lots of cutting, painting, gluing, unpacking and creating. Jackie, Bobbie, Medeah and myself are all busy getting ready for the Paper Crown Fall Glittered Retreat next week. Kits need to be assembled, plans made, rooms decorated and surprises- lots of surprises- assembled. It is going to be a great time and we are ready to create some magic!

A supply list for the participants will go out on Sunday; I promise it is nothing out of the ordinary. In the meantime ladies you can be finishing up - or starting- your swaps if you chose to participate. The purse swap will be Thursday evening. If you filled out a questionnaire,  Thelma has already emailed your swap partner. Thank you Thelma for heading this up you have done a great job- despite all the wrenches I have thrown at you! The Mask swap will be Friday evening. If you haven't picked up a mask to decorate, I have them at the store. we would love for everyone to do this swap if it fits in your schedule. What a fun group picture this will make! Final swap is the ATC " magic" swap on Saturday.

In addition to all of this, Medeah is teaching a technique class tomorrow. You won't want to miss and there is still time to sign up; simply call Paper Crown at 405 848-2389 to reserve your spot. 


Jill and Amy are at the store busy unpacking boxes. Webster's Pages came in along with a large shipment of our favorite markers. They work great and have a great price.

Smell of Fall

It's a perfect day to enjoy fall and what better way to celebrate fall than with a new candle from our FAVORITE company. Mexican pumpkin, Autumn, Bella Dolce, Wild currant, Honey Tobacco, Amber and Black Pepper- yep black pepper and it smells great - and a few old standbys: they sound great don't they.
 
Some other eye candy....
