"Rusty" was the theme for August's altered book club....

I apologize it seems I missed a couple of books. With 19 books flying around the room I always seem to miss taking pictures of a couple- my apologizes!
As you can see this has been an amazing book swap and I am always in awe of the creative talents that circle our tables in the back. You are all artists!
Paper Crown will be open today Saturday 10-4 and closed Monday for Labor Day.
We are busy getting ready for Debby's visit next week it will be a great way to kick off fall- although I don't think the forecast is very fallish- and all the new treasures that have and will be coming in the next two weeks. New items arriving daily and those cute vintage notebooks- almost gone. Yes, they are that cute! It isn't too late to sign up for Debby's classes. The Friday classes are getting very close to being full but we can squeeze in a few more lucky students.  You need to come by and check out the samples in person. I have had several people sign up the last few days after seeing for themselves how adorable each class is. Everyone who has seen them has been very pleased. Don't let this opportunity pass you by! It is definitely worth a drive for those of you close but not in the OKC area. Call the store to reserve your spot, 405 848-2389.
Have a wonderful Labor Day

Boxes are Flying

I managed to make a small dent in the boxes in the back. Many more to go and oh what great products. Here is a peek of what I unpacked so far today...

Fun new collage sheets

Brass fortune cookie which opens and you can add your own fortune

Not just any glitter pen but German glass glitter- the Good stuff

Vintage inspired journals from the Where Women Create line.
I adore the paper in these journals; it reminds me of school.
Fun pushpins

Silk ribbon

I love this rich eggplant velvet ribbon

Washi strip bits

For those of you registered for Debby Schuh's Fall Retreat next weekend I received the samples of all 4 classes today. If you are thinking about taking come by and look at the samples. I guarantee you will want to sign up. The pictures just can't capture all the details in these  four projects. You do not want to miss out on this opportunity!

To register for one or all four of Debby's classes, call Paper Crown, 405 848-2389

Let the Unpacking Begin

New shipment from Somerset Studios. The Holiday & Celebration issue always flies out the door; it has decorating ideas for each holiday.

Great new stencils and embellishments from Jenni Bowlin

A fun new line of items inspired by one of our favorite magazines, " Where Women Create."  Line includes ribbon, trim, embellishments, journals and fun storage ideas.

Love these new frames. May have to stick a picture of Katie and Payne in one- mom is missing those two!
There are still so very many boxes in the back so it will be new merchandise every day this week.
Don't forget to sign up for our Fall Retreat with Debby Schuh next weekend, Sept. 6 & 7th
How are those crowns comin' - it could be worth a $100

Birthday Bash

This beautiful cookies were by my friend Kristi Smith. If you are needing some tasty cookies I'll pass on her number.

We had just a couple of birthday cookies left from our Birthday Bash weekend. Thank you to everyone who came out to shop and celebrate Paper Crown's 7th birthday. I can't believe it has been that long, seems like just yesterday I was unlocking the store door thinking to myself " I own a store- what the heck am I doing."

Our crown contest turn out was a little sparse so I decided to extend the deadline to Wednesday, Sept. 4th. I would absolutely love to replace all the original crowns lining the store with new ones so if you have been on the fence- jump on over. Hopefully now that school has started you will have a little more time or there is always the long weekend coming up. Poster board forms are available at the store or you are free to create your own. There is still time to mail in your crown if you are an out of town follower. This is a great way for you to connect with Paper Crown even if you don't live in the area.

We will have a judge from out of town who doesn't now any of us pick the judge's award.  Peggy B. also had a great idea and I have decided to adopt it. In addition to the judge's award, we will have a people's choice award were customers can vote on their favorite crown. Prize for both will be a $100 Paper Crown gift card! It could definitely be worth your time and effort so I hope to see those crowns flying in.

It's a busy couple of weeks so stay connected to our blog...
