Last Day of Paper Crown 40% off Sale

Ladies let's end the year on a fiscal summit- instead of a cliff. Tomorrow Monday, December 31st is the last day of our Paper Crown 40% off sale. This is a great time to stock up on basics and get prepared for those crafting days to come. Who doesn't like crafting on a cold snowy day!

Everything in the store is at least 40% off, Christmas is 60% off and there is a backroom full of .10 a piece paper and 60% off embellishments. I will be putting new paper out in the backroom tomorrow morning.

This is my way of saying " Thank You" to all of my loyal friends and customers and also "thanks" to a few new ones. We had a car from Wichita come in Saturday to shop for the 1st time- Thanks ladies and gentleman for making the drive.

I must also admit the sale also benefits me- less items to count on Wed. & Thurs.

Don't miss out- store will be open on Monday the 31st at 10:00 am.

Christmas MIA

With Katie home for the holidays I have been letting her take over the store and I have been spending some much needed time at home. Things had kinda stacked up and this time of year just seemed to make it worse.

I have actually done some cleaning, decorating and wrapping this week. Typically I wrap all night on Christmas Eve and have been known to even finish decorating the tree- minutes before they head down the stairs.

Don't forget Paper Crown for your last minute gifts ideas, gift certificates, or stocking stuffers. We also have beautiful Rifle Paper wrapping, tags and stickers to make your gifts' presentation a work of art (and we are much more reasonable that some of those big trendy chain stores).

Kid's Camp tomorrow from 9:30-12:30 and 1:30-4:30.

We Have Gone to the Dogs- and an elf!

There are dogs everywhere around here- fabric ones, paper ones and even a real one!

I saw these dog ornaments this summer and just could not resist. Love this little Scottie and sitting pooch. I think I was a little puppy crazy when I ordered, I had just gotten Lexie!

I know I ordered this grey poodle because it reminded me of Lexie's favorite buddy, Lilly who is the shop dog at Casey's.

You can kinda see the Dalmatian in the background and there is also a daschund. For those of you that missed out, we got in a new shipment of the paper birds. These flew out the door lickety split. there are 6 different styles and at the current moment, we have all 6 in stock.

This little guy is as mischievous as Lexie. They are both keeping me on my toes.

Reminder there is Sunday Kid's Camp this Sunday, Dec. 16th from 2-4 and Holiday Kids Camp a week from today, Thursday, Dec. 20th from 9:30-12:30 and 1:30-4:30. We have a couple of spots open in each.

We are open tonight until 7pm

We have a winner -and a long awaited delivery!

Look what our elf got into? As some of you know we have been waiting for months for a new shipment of beaded bracelets from Nepal. Apparently there is a month long holiday in Nepal in October and everything shuts down. I must say if I had been beading these for months I would need a serious break. Anyway,this shipment has been on back order since September but it finally arrived on Saturday. 600 beautiful bracelets. These make perfect hostess gifts, a little something for a friend or the perfect stocking stuffer. Our prices still can't be beat- $10.00 each or 3 for $27.00.

We have a winner for the Paper Crown Christmas giveaway. It is Kim Budash. Kim if you will call Paper Crown at 405-524-1108 to make arrangements for your prize. Congrats!

Who knows we may have to come up with one more giveaway before Christmas! Have a great day and stay warm!

New Tradition

Since I'm asking everyone to leave their favorite holiday tradion for the Paper Crown giveaway, I thought it was only fair that I leave one of my own. This is not an old tradition but a brand new one we started this year- thanks to pinterest.

I kept seeing all these funny elf on a shelf postings and was sad that I missed out on all the fun. I remember the elf from my childhood. Mom had a ton of them and we would put them out at Christmas. I think she told me they were a promotional item on laundry detergent  or something like that in the 60's- yes, I'm old. Anyway now the elf has a resurgence of popularity but this time he moves around the house each day and it's kinda a game to find him and see what he has been doing.

It is probably more for elementary aged kiddos but I have to admit the boys, soon to be in college and high school, are getting a kick out of it. I send Katie a picture every am and she too is enjoying it. We decided it would be a fun thing for her to do once she has her own classroom.  

Here is what our elf has been up to this week, i just hope that mischievous little guy never shows up at the store.

Payne's response was " Really Mom!" He better be careful that elf may get him

He got all of our family pictures in the staircase. That little cutie in the leaves is Em


Oh Did You Miss Out

If you weren't with us last Saturday, boy did you miss out! Ann-Denise had a great class for a couple of lucky people. They first created the these beautiful snow fairy ornaments , the perfect addition to your Christmas decorations.

This fairy was created by Ann-Denise's daughter Kendall. I love the elf theme- more on that later.

Then it was off to this magnificent tree topper. They were all different and the perfect highlight to your tree. It was a full but fun day. Unfortunately, Ann-Denise really took one for the team in the final hour- a massive glue gun burn! Hope it is better Ann-Denise! We so appreciate Ann-Denise and her family making that early morning drive to OKC from Ft. Worth. We are so glad she is willing to share her expertise and talent with us.
If you are regretting this missed class, I have a couple of complete kits for both and a few individual " Charlotte" heads if you want to create your own.
Perfect use for the "Charlotte" molds. What a unique topper for a wine or cider bottle

Thanks to all the ladies that came on Saturday, Sorry Lisa & Kim,  I didn't a picture of your finished projects but they were beautiful!  
A reminder we have openings left in Jackie's Tag class tomorrow

Also a couple of openings in
Bobbie's Top Hat Class this Saturday
Call the store to reserve your spot in either class, 405-848-2389.

Don't forget to leave your comment for the Paper Crown giveaway- at the moment, chances are good you will win!
