Piles on the Table- Again!

This time of year a clean backroom is just an elusive wish. I thought I had everything out so I could begin to put Christmas in the backroom and the doorbell keeps ringing and the boxes are piled high so.... the tables in the back are once again full of new goodies.

Here is a small bit...

More on these beauties later but they are exquisite.

I am unpacking Pink Paislee and Heidi Swapp today, Cavallini is next. Saturday is supposed to be rainy so what better place to hang out then Paper Crown. Check out all the new lines and hopefully get a peek at Christmas.

Don't forget to sign up for our Halloween classes and the final day to vote on your favorite crown is tomorrow.

Aubergine, Violet, Purple

That was the theme for September's Artful Altered Book Club....

Kory loves these old pictures of smoking babies and I think we have all kinda become obsessed with them. Who thought hey let's give our baby a cigarette and take a picture- there are lots out there. Bet we have a few more joining our quirky obsession.
A very talented group and how fun this monthly gathering has been. Next month's theme is "creepy." Should be fun and just in time for Halloween.
Don't forget to vote for your favorite crown; you can either vote at the store or leave a comment on the Sept. 11th blog posting. Voting ends this Saturday, Sept. 28th.
Lots of new lines being unpacked- Pink Paislee and Heidi Swap are on the list for today

Burst of Color

Quick post because there is so much to do- and unpack- but a burst of color is just what I have been unpacking today. Love getting this box of ribbon, not only is the inside beautiful but the outside is always wrapped in a brown paper sack, just like my grandmothers used to do. I love it so much more then those standard boxes with a computer label.

Another box of color. I love these light colorful bracelets. we have a good selection of Fall, OU, OSU and Thunder colors- also some green for McGuiness and Baylor. I know, I know but it's my store so I can indulge my favorites every once in a while. we also got in the cutest earring to match these bracelets, not sure why I didn't take a picture.

Lots more boxes to tackle- by this weekend the back will be full again.

I know you all have been patiently waiting for some more classes and I am so very pleased to let you know they are coming in. We know have 2 Halloween classes, Nicole's Apothecary Shadowbox on Sat., Oct 5th and  Ole Crow by Bobbie on Thurs., Oct 10th. It has been a crazy summer full of " life" but it appears we are hitting our crafting stride. To sign up for either Halloween class call Paper Crown at 405 848-2389.I know these Halloween classes are going to be popular!
Don't forget there are two days left in the 2013 Shop Hop so if you haven't made it to all the stores today is a perfect cool day to do a little shopping. In addition, this weekend is the Casady Square Sidewalk Sale- you can kill two birds with one stone.
We will be closing a little early today, at 3. I have an appointment with two very special people. A very pregnant Jill will be holding down the fort tomorrow for you Saturday shoppers. She  has a soccer game at 9 so she might not be here exactly at 10 but will shortly. Thanks for your understanding.
Lots of new goodies in...


Perfect for a baby album

Every Once in a While It Pays

99.9 % of the time it is of absolutely no benefit, if you are a 14 yr old guy, to have a mom that owns a paper store. Everything is so girly, glitter everywhere, something always needs moved or hung and counting the change is SO boring.

However, when you have your first high school dance coming up and the week's forecast is rain and you were goin to ask by chalking the sidewalk- you are in trouble. Mom to the rescue...

and Kendall's response...

It's all good- and maybe all that paper isn't so bad after all!
