Home Is Where the Heart Is

Last night was the second meeting of the Paper Crown Artful Altered Book Swap. This was the first time we had created in another's book. Since most of us were new to this, I think everyone was a tad bit nervous. Rest assured there was absolutely no reason for anyone to be nervous, they were each INCREDIBLE!

Thought I would share a few of them with you. As you can guess, February's theme was "hearts."



Pretty darn good for the first time out of the chute.
I will post more later but I need to get back to ALL those unopened boxes in the back. I feel like I have been unpacking for weeks. New goodies out each day

Oh Just Cooperate!

It appears that the weather might play a roll in this week's activities- UGH! The store policy is if the Oklahoma City Public Schools are closed for the day, all Paper Crown classes/activities will be cancelled and it's possible the store might also be closed or at least operating at alternative hours. If in doubt please call; I would hate for anyone to make a wasted trip especially during icy driving conditions.

All that being said, if the weather men are incorrect, here is a run down of the classes this week. There are openings in all. To sign up simply call Paper Crown at 405 848-2389.

Stay warm and safe!

For all you Bobbie Fans

For all you Bobbie fans, and we have many. Here are a trio of classes coming up that you won't want to miss.

Hippity, Hoppity
Tomorrow, Sat. Febr 23rd
Due to the snow and ice this week, we rescheduled the Spring Trio class to next Tues., Feb. 26th from 11-2. We still have a couple of openings if this new date fits your schedule. Cost for this trio of projects is just $25.00
Rabbit Chandelier
Sat., March 9th
To sign up for classes simply call Paper Crown, 405-848-2389.
I'm so very blessed to have some of the best and most giving teachers at Paper Crown. In between creating classes, Bobbie has been doing some computer stuff for me to help the website and blog look more appealing. As many of you know, Jackie dresses Girdie for me and she was here all day on Wed. until I kicked her out once the sleet began. You are going to love Girdie, she is once again dressed to honor our favorite stamp line, Character Construction. Because of the weather, Girdie has a couple of finishing touches so I'll wait for her photo shoot!
Lots of new goodies out in the store and shipping notices are arriving every day!

Saturday's Hippity Hoppity Class

Here is a much better picture of Bobbie's Hippity Hoppity class this Saturday, Feb. 23rd from 11-2. Class cost is $45.00 and includes all supplies. Call Paper Crown to reserve your class seat.

Boxes are still coming and I had to take a break today from inputting merchandise because there wasn't an empty table top or counter in the back.

Heads Up on this Week

Just in case this week flies by like last week, I thought I would try and get a head's start.  We have three classes this week and a couple of openings in each. First up is our first daytime class

Spring Trio
Wed., Feb. 20th
 $25.00, Bobbie
You will be making all three Easter decorations for a steal at $25.00
Mixed Media Poppies
Tues., Feb 19th
$45.00, Medeah
Not sure these are actually poppies but the bright red reminds me of a favorite flower- that hates the OK heat. This is the only way you will get poppies in OK girls!

Hippity Hop
Sat., Feb. 23rd
$45.00, Bobbie
Much much cuter and larger than the picture portrays-
this is a you will be sorry class
Also don't forget our Character Construction Easter Parade Contest. Grab your favorite Character Construction stamp and deck your doll out in it's Sunday best. All dolls need to be at the store by Fri., March 15th  and the judging will be held March 29th.  $75.00, $50.00 & $25.00 gift certificates will be awarded for the top three dolls and a special gift certificate, that can be used on our website, for the top doll from out of the OKC area. I thought this would be a great way to include all of our Paper Crown followers who live out of town, state or the country.
Just a few more days of discounted Anna Griffin and Valentine papers and embellishments. We still have a large selection of .10 paper and all embellishments and frames on the back table are 60% off.
Last but certainly not least, the CHA new products have begun to arrive - or maybe better put flood the backroom. Ready to go all the new My Mind's Eye collections and washi tape, 2 new Authentique lines, 2 new Glitz lines, 2 Prima lines with lots of flowers and lots of embellishments and chipboard albums from Maya Road . I will begin Monday am unpacking the 5 American Craft and 4 Graphic 45 boxes- sorry Papa K the boxes arrived about 2 hours after you left.  Please be patient I'm working fast but there is just a lot of goodness. I believe Bella Blvd should arrive this week and I'm sure there will be others.
It's going to be a busy week but a fun one!

I think the chances of any of my kiddos looking at this are slim but just in case...

Don't want to be accused of  having a favorite. Happy Heart Day, I hope cupid strikes!

Happy Heart Day!

The cutest little cupid ever! Katie at 9 months.
I hope you all have a wonderful day with those you love. I will be wearing my Valentine's necklaces. Three handmade heart necklaces the kiddos made in preschool.
Happy Heart Day!
