Tree Looking a Little Blah?

If your tree needs a little holiday make over we have the perfect solution.

Join Medeah this coming Tuesday evening, Dec. 4th at 5:30 to create these three ornaments. Like all of Medeah's classes you not only will create something beautiful but learn a new technique you can apply to other projects. This would look lovely on your tree or are substantial enough to make the perfect teacher, friend or hostess gifts. Class cost is $45.00 and includes all supplies.
Tree still needs a little something?
Join us tomorrow, Sat., Dec. 1st,  for this spectacular pair of classes with our dear friend Ann-Denise. In the morning she will be teaching the snow fairy and the afternoon this wonderful tree topper. Cost for both classes is $100 or you can take the snow fairy for $55.00 and the tree topper for $70.00.  It will be a festive day at Paper Crown and I guarantee you won't have to fight the traffic or hunt forever for a parking spot.
If you are interested in either Medeah's ornament class on Tues., Dec. 4th or either or both of Ann-Denise's class tomorrow, Dec. 1st , simply call Paper Crown at 848-2389 to reserve your class spot. Class fee includes all supplies.  Kits are available for either of Ann-Denise's classes.
Thank you to all of our " angels" who participated in the Angel Wing Toy Drive class last night. We collected lots of toys for the kiddos at Children's Hospital and made the most adorable set of wings. Thanks Bobbie for coming up with such a great idea and donating your time. Thanks also to Bobbie's husband and Lexi's best bud, Randy, for cutting out 18 sets of wings- you earned yours buddy!

Angel Wings & Snow Fairies

Just a reminder for all you girls who were quick enough to sign up for Bobbie's Angel Wings class tomorrow. Please bring a pair of scissors, regular sized glue gun (you have lots of gluing to do) and plenty of glue sticks. Oops, most importantly, also please bring an unwrapped toy comparable to class cost to be donated to Children's Hospital.

Not quick enough to make this class,
Take a break from the mall and all that traffic this weekend and join us for some relaxing fun!
One of our favorite chicks from down south, Miss Ann-Denise, will be heading north to teach TWO holiday classes.  If you sign up for both you will get a $25.00 savings and two new favorite Christmas decorations.
We will start the day with...
Snow Fairy
This Sat am, Dec. 1st
And For an Afternoon Encore...

Tree Topper
This Sat. afternoon, Dec. 1st
This beauty is actually much larger than she looks and is ready to be placed at the top of your tree!
Sign up for both classes for $100.00
Kits are available also!
Call Paper Crown at 405 848-2389 to reserve your class seat or order a kit 

Make Your Holiday Sparkle

I love this front display table. It is ALL about the sparkle! Mercury glass is such a fun way to update your holiday decorating and it looks beautiful all year long. I also love this Santos. For a couple of years now they have been a small obsession. We have several different ones in the store but I love this one's facial expression and she has good hair. Most are really just a helmet. This girl has braids.

This gorgeous crown is really a royal memory crown. The ribbons have hooks at the end where you can attach pictures and mementos. It makes for a very elegant and special display.

Another beautiful crown, perfect to incorporate in a centerpiece or possibly as a tree topper.

All of this royal glittery goodness is brought to you by two wonderfully talented friends, Debbie and Shea, the Gilded Life girls. I met them last Spring when I attended an art event in their restored church which served as their most beautiful home in Dallas. They have since moved and I'm working on Austin to buy it for a combo home, store, law office and non- profit headquarters. It's a stretch but a girl can dream.

This spring, I was lucky enough to spend an entire week with them at the French General Chateau Getaway. I just realized I never posted pictures from that trip- I need to. Shea taught one of her famous beading classes and Debbie a beaded flower posy. It was so much fun getting to spend that week with them and hopefully, they might even make it to Paper Crown in 2013! Keep your fingers crossed ladies.

In the meantime I am so thrilled to have some of their products in the store and you need to check out their blog, www. whathappensnext.typepad, if you have not done so. It is addictive, I promise.

Come see the Gilded Life ornaments, crowns and jewelry. They are the perfect gifts for that friend that loves to sparkle!

Two Doors Closed BUT Two WindowsCracked

Today could be your lucky day for two spontaneous artsy girls. Two ladies had to cancel from Bobbie's wildly popular Snow Bird class being held at Paper Crown tomorrow, Saturday, Nov. 17th from 10:30-2:30ish. Bobbie had already prepared all those kits so we decided to offer these spots to two lucky gals.  This class is very full and I have had to turn people away so hopefully it will be someones lucky day! This project is beautiful and the picture does not do it justice. Class cost is $45.00 and you can register simply by calling the store at 405 848-2389. Not only can you create a charming holiday decoration but get a little holiday shopping completed at 15% off for class participants.

Ladies this class is very full so please try to be ready to go at 10:30 so Bobbie can begin on time. We appreciate it!

I will be at my sister's wedding in Tulsa this weekend but the store is in good hands with Bobbie and Ms. Kendall. Please be patient, we are in a training process which will help me greatly and enable us to reach more followers through our on line store opening soon.

I have tweaked the Holiday class schedule over the past two days so you might want to check for some great crafting opportunities. Ann-Denise is offering a $25.00 savings if you sign up for both of her classes on Sat., Dec. 1 and Jackie caved and will be teaching one Holiday Tag class on Dec. 6th.

Have a great weekend and hopefully I just made two lucky ladies very happy!
