Home Sweet Home

As some of you know or might have guessed, I have been away for a couple of weeks doing some relaxing, crafting, buying- for the store and some honeymooning. I had a wonderful time and can't wait to share my adventures but am feeling the need today to tie up some loose ends.

First thank you to Katie, Caroline and Cheri for allowing me this break. It was wonderful to get away and know the store was in good hands.A special thanks to Cheri who has been the backbone of Paper Crown- and 7 Minutes Later- for 9 years. We will miss your smile, laughter, expertise,singing and stories. Please don't be a stranger! For those of you that have left phone messages or emails I will be getting back with you soon. Thanks to everyone who has shopped around  the store's new addition, Lexie. She is getting there but still has a ways to go- thank you for your patience.

Kit No. - I've lost track
Now that I'm back we are going to continue to clean out my office by offering you left over class kits. These kits will be offered at a discount and although you do not get written instructions, we will provide all the photos needed to complete this project. Kits span several years and all the holidays so if today's doesn't interest you, check back tomorrow. The first one to call the store is the winner.

Finally thanks to everyone who has sent Girdie a postcard over the past two weeks. I will give you more specifics tomorrow but Miss Girdie has been busy dreaming of far off places!

If you are traveling this summer, drop Girdie a postcard and your name will be entered in a drawing for a Paper Crown gift certificate at the end of summer.

Whew! I think that's it for today but stay tuned for new items to be unpacked and far away adventures!
There's No Place Like Home- or the Paper Crown!
