Giddy up!

Who knew Mona Lisa had a hankerin' for cowboys! Join Franc on Thursday, March 31st for this fun mixed Media canvas with an Italian western flair. Class will begin at 5:30 and go until the cows come home- or 8:30ish. This tall drink of a canvas (4x12) is the perfect background for Mona, her lasso and the cutest pair of boots. Cost is $45.00 and all supplies are included, just bring your knapsack with your basic tools- scissors (small and regular), adhesive and any of your own goodies to embellish.  To register for class call Paper Crown, 848-2389. Please make sure you check your calendars before signing up, you sign up and you are part of this rodeo whether you show or not. Payment is required at the time you sign up. Giddy up girlies and join Franc's posse!

We also have a couple of openings left in Ann-Denise's Easter Bucket class on Saturday, March 19th, 11-4 pm. Sorry Ann- Denise, I couldn't think of any cute bunny phrases to go with your beautiful class but we do not love it any less! As those of you who have taken from Ann-Denise know, the stash of goodies is to die for, each students creation will be unique and they will all be absolutely gorgeous and oh so vintage. Cost is $65.00 and all supplies are included, just bring your basic tools and any of your own goodies to embellish. Don't wait too long or this class will be hip hopping out of your future.

Going, going gone-
 We have one, yes, one spot open in Jackie's spool class on Thursday, April 7th from 5:30- 8:30. You will be making two of Jackie's famous spools, both dressed in their Easter finery. Cost is $45.00.

 Here is your chance
Those presketched painting places are popping up everywhere and although their paintings are cute, we knew Paper Crown could add that crowning touch and make it spectacular. Join Hillari and I on the first of our monthly pre-sketched painting soirees. The vase will be sketched, the flowers textured so you can concentrate on the painting. There are no excuses ladies- think of it as chic paint by numbers.  Honestly, Hillari will walk you through each step so that you will go home with a piece of art you will love. The first painting class will be Saturday, March 26th from 1-4 pm. Cost is $65.00. Come rediscover why you loved painting as a child! 

Third Times the Charm- Literally

Still two more spots in Heather's basic soldering class on Friday, April 22nd from 3-6 pm. Heather is by far the best and most thorough soldering teacher around. Cost is $65.00 and all supplies are included.

Last but certainly not least - spots are still available for Heather's Home Sweet Home soldering class on Saturday, April 23rd from 10:30-5:30. I will hopefully be picking up the sample next week while on our spring break frenzy in the big D- Great Wolf Lodge, Medieval Times,  Six Flags- yipee, but rest assured this soldered house will be stunning. Must have completed Heather's basic and intermediate soldering classes. Cost is $95.00. 

Whew! Believe it or not there is a whole slew of new classes waiting to be announced very soon- sorry ladies do not call on Thursday because you absolutely CAN NOT sign up yet- it will be soon - I promise. They are so very special they deserve their own blog and email announcement.

To sign up for any of these great classes call the store, 848-2389. We will open at 10 am on Thursday and it will be first come first serve. Remember to first check your calendar - no cancellations- really! Have a great evening!

  3. Hey I signed up for a basic soldering class, but when I was in the store on Sat. we couldn't find my name on the sign up sheet. Panic. Well, not really, but I do want to take this class. I don't think I would have signed up for the Fri. class. I will come in tomorrow and see the new stuff and see if we can figure out what the heck I signed up for. Hugs, Medeah

  4. I have been out of town and out of touch! (no computer svc.) I hope there is still room in the Mother's Day Book class. I think you have my CC# on file--I am in the spool Easter class. I will try to call Monday.
