Ladies, Could It Be Time for a Road Trip?

I've noticed the past couple of Saturdays that our store has been full of out of towners. Some have come to town for other reasons and stumbled upon Paper Crown thanks to google but others have made a decision to make the drive to see what this little store is all about. First, thank you to everyone who comes to the store. I appreciate your business and friendship. However all our new customers have got me thinking, a road trip to OKC?? (for all you locals this post is not so much for you, Paper Crown is home to you.) Heck yea, we have a great town and lots of fun venues for a girl's getaway.

We are lucky enough to have such a great variety of classes at Paper Crown that you could drive in on a Thursday to take a class, play on Friday (I'm happy to share some of my favorite OKC shops and restaurants, take another class from another talented teacher at Paper Crown on Saturday and drive home having had a little vacation just for you. I'll make you a deal, if you do that,  let me know and I'll have you over for dinner on Friday.

We all need a break at some point and if creating is what refreshes you, then we are the perfect art spa. We have several that make a long drive to classes on weekdays and weekends. We also have several more that have committed to drive in once a month for the altered book swap. I think this just proves that for some of us, we just need to create and to be around others that feel the same.

For all of you that live out of town, think about gathering up some girlfriends and making the drive. We will do our very best to make sure you have a fun time, just let us know you are coming. I promise the drive goes quickly with friends, an adult sleepover is just like we we were kids- a late night of talking and laughter, and the creating will refresh your spirit.

I'll now tempt you with this Saturday's class ...

There are still some openings for Ann-Denise's Sweet Valentine Cotton Spun Doll class this Saturday, Jan. 26th, 11-2:30, cost $50.00 includes all supplies.  A Saturday road trip might be just the way to wet your feet, all it takes is a phone call to register and a tank of gas. For a full list of classes see our website or blog postings.

I know from experience how fun and restoring a good girl's trip can be. About 10 years ago some friends and I discovered Nell Hills in Atchison, KS. Someone was looking through a Victoria magazine and thought it looked like a fun store. The rest is history resulting in some amazing shopping hauls, lots of laughter and a few tears, wonderful memories and a friendship with Mary Carol, owner of Nell Hill's, that resulted in the inspiration for Paper Crown. You never know what might happen on a good road trip ladies!
