Happy Halloween!

Thought I would share the pages from our October Artful Altered Book Club that met last night. As you can probably guess, our theme was " creepy."




Wishing you all a happy Halloween that is a little bit creepy and a lot sweet- as in candy of course- it's Halloween you can go back to veggies and yogurt tomorrow :)

It Was a Hit

I love it when things just effortlessly fall into place. It wasn't planned but when Bobbie had some extra Pumpkin King kits, we decided to throw together a Halloween Soiree and make the best of it.

Bobbie definitely outdid herself for this event. She decorated the classroom, beautifully assembled the kits ( yes it's true, the students thought they were so lovely they actually hesitated to open them), taught everyone the cutest Halloween decoration, gave away the most amazing prizes and decided it wasn't enough, and taught another mini project!

Love this Bingo cards

Sorry guys these pictures stink but are in no way indicative of the event!
In fact, it was so well received the participates asked for a Holiday Soiree about halfway through the morning and in a state of exhaustion, Bobbie agreed. So mark your calendars for Saturday, Dec. 14th from 10:30-1:30. The project and cost are still in the planning stages but I know it will be wonderful and you will not want to miss. Class space is limited so once we announce the projects and cost, it will be a first come first serve basis.
Thank you once again Bobbie, Becky and Randy for making this such a special event at Paper Crown. As I have said so many times, God has walked the most amazing people - or angels- through the doors of Paper Crown and I count you three in my "host of glittered angels"
Thank you also to everyone who attended and made Saturday so fun. Guess it proves a little spontaneity can have it's advantages. Our customers -and friends- are what make Paper Crown such an amazing store. Thank you!

Paper Crown Closed Monday & Tuesday

First, thank you, thank you to everyone who attended our Halloween Soiree this weekend. The weather was dreary but we had a fun and creative day. It was such a huge hit I think there might be a Holiday event coming soon.  We are working out the details but more to come soon. I'm sure this will be another sell out so check the blog for sign up. Picture to come tomorrow.

Thanks also for all your patience on Saturday. I learned at the end of the day on Friday that my hard drive was gone but we were so busy getting ready for the soiree that the impact didn't hit until Saturday. Hope to get the computer up and running soon but in the meantime- hand written tickets- ugh! Thank you for being patient.

Maybe the timing was fine because Paper Crown will be closed Monday, Oct. 28 & Tuesday, Oct 29th. I'm taking a creative seminar and thinking about adding a new element to Paper Crown which I think will fit nicely with our store and customers. Here is a hint...

A little blurry but not much to see anyway. Can guess what the surprise is?
Paper Crown will be open Wednesday Oct 30 at 10am and continuing with our 31% off sale.

Saturday's Event and a Bootiful Sale

What a great turnout we have for Saturday's Halloween Soiree but we still have a couple of spots left for those of you still on the fence. At the last minute we decided to do a fun Halloween treat and I know you won't want to miss.
The Pumpkin King makes the perfect Halloween decoration for your mantle or table and measures over 24" tall.
The weather looks rainy so what better way to spend the morning than taking this adorable class, enjoying a warm lunch and maybe even winning a prize or two. $45 will cover a couple hours of fun and for those of you in town for Affair of the Heart, you will still have plenty of time to shop and hopefully the early am crowd will be gone. This is the perfect opportunity for those of you from out of town to experience the Paper Crown. To reserve your spot call the store at 405 848-2389.
For those of you attending, don't forget to create a Halloween headpiece for a chance at a $40 Paper Crown gift certificate.
The backroom is absolutely packed with Holiday papers, embellishments and goodies so to make some room, we will be having a "Bootiful" 31% off sale on all craft items in the front room this Saturday, October 26th- Wednesday, October 31st. Help us make room for all the wonderful Holiday items we have this season.
Also a couple of spots left in tomorrow's " Be Thankful" mixed media class taught by Medeah. If you have been wanting to try "mixed media" you won't want to miss Medeah's class. She is the real deal and you can learn from the expert. $45 class fee includes all supplies and it will be an evening of fun and I know you will learn a new technique or two.  
The new October Afternoon holiday paper arrived yesterday and all of you OA fans will love it!
