Buck Up

That is my phrase. I don't use it a lot but I do when the time comes to get my nose to the grindstone and get movin'. Or when I dive head first into the pit and need to shimmy my way out. I'll admit I once told a kindergartner on a field trip to " buck up " - the whining and complaining was driving us all crazy. I never lived that one down at school. That same little whining kindergartners told Katie on facebook recently that she remembered her nice mom.  I guess I didn't scar her for life- Whew!

Anyway it's time to buck up at Paper Crown, we have lots of work and projects to tackle this week. 

Thurs., Feb 23rd

Thursday is the first of Jackie's classes using Catherine Moore's new Character Construction stamps, the Bee Keeper's Tea. This class is full but Jackie will be doing another class with these fun stamps on March 6th. If you are attending the class this Thursday please be on time, we have a full house. Also please bring detail scissors, adhesive and colored pencils or markers to color your doll.

The first shipment of Bee Keeper's Tea stamps flew out the door but we should have a complete new shipment by the end of the week!

Up Up and Away
Sat., Feb 25th
11-3, Ann-Denise

One of our favorite Texas gals will be at the store on Saturday to teach this fun paper mache class. You will learn how to take this adorable frozen Charlotte to new heights. This will be a fun class and we can all benefit from learning a new technique. There are a few openings but don't delay.

To sign up for class just call the store at 848-2389

The doorbell should be ringing a lot this week. New CHA shipments are expected from- Prima, Tim Holtz, Making Memories and Glitz. I'm not sure when the items will arrive but all should be out by the beginning of next week.   

New items ready for purchase:

Lots of fun tags, flashcards and journaling calendars from a company new to me, Elle's Studio. These fun tags make journaling and recording life's important moments a snap- and they are so cute!

Consistently one of my favorites and they are so nice to deal with is My Mind's Eye. We have their two new collections, Ms. Caroline and Follow your Heart.  Both have the most unique embellishments and beautiful paper.

Because of all the new merchandise arriving in the next few weeks, our sale room will be packed up tomorrow. If you haven't been by now is the time- all Christmas and Valentine's paper and embellishments are 75% off, all other embellishments are 40% off and paper is a dime! It will be packed up on Wednesday so no dilly dallying.

The doorbell is ringing so I guess it's time for me to " buck up!" see you soon!
