Happy New Year's

As we quickly bring 2014 to a close I would like to say what a blessing each of our customers, and more importantly friends, have meant to me. You have brought laughter, friendship and an unending source of creativity to our little paper arts store in OKC. I'll spend the next few days planning out 2015 and am so glad I will get to share it with you!

I would love to hear what you would like to see in the store, classes taught and teachers to visit. If you will take a moment and let me know, I will try my best to make it happen.

I hope your 2015 is full of friends, family, love, blessings and plenty of time to create!

End the Year on a High Note

Last week as I was shuffling around the store trying to get things done before I left for a white Christmas in Colorado, I quickly unpacked a box from Somerset Studios. I knew it was magazines and thought great reading material for the long drive to Pagosa Springs. When a new shipment comes in, I always flip through them quickly and pull the ones I want to read for home.

As I was flipping through Somerset Life, my eye caught a picture of a darn good replica of our chandelier. My first thought was, who copied our chandelier and then when I looked at the following page......


Our Spring Glitter Retreat was published in Somerset Life!  
I will admit I screamed- Robn can attest to that. We have a 6 page spread with some beautiful pictures- thanks to Savannah. Thank you Bobbie, Holly, Jackie, Medeah, Savannah and the 24 wonderful attendees to our first Paper Crown Glitter Retreat. Because of YOU we are ending the year on an incredible high.
We have copies of Somerset Life at the store and more on order if you would like to share in our surprise.
Thank you again for supporting the store, our teachers and Glitter Retreat.
p.s. - Yes, Austin you were mentioned in a Somerset publication first but I have a picture : )

Gifts For Everyone

A few more pics of new items that anyone would love to find under their tree...

Sugarboo 100 Gathered Thoughts Pad for loved one, dear friend, beautiful child & good advice.
At the bottom of each page is a saying applicable to the theme that can be torn off and put in a lunch, backpack, sent to a friend . I think it would be neat to incorporate these in your  daily journals.
Canvas tote perfect for your make up, pencils, markers or all those frequent buyer cards.

A fun family gift that is a game that spurs memories of family & traditions

Each page has a different quote for your fine young man. Kind of like mom advice when you can't be there : )

New shipment of our favorite bracelets-great to layer together or with others and so light weight you won't even know you are wearing them.
New shipment of Rifle Paper. A desk pad so pretty it makes chores even seem fun. Also in new Rifle phone cases for 4, 5 & 6 iphones.   

Canine coasters

Neat interactive letters from Santa and the elves for your kids or grandkids. These would be fun to accompany your " Elf on the Shelf" or a new tradition if you are tired of thinking of elf pranks!
Who doesn't love new markers. These are a few of the open stock Spectrum markers that are not included in the sets.

Gifts For Those Crafty- Finally

Hopefully these gorgeous crafty gifts will make up for my delay. Lots going on last week and many boxes of treasures to unpack. I have been waiting for these and they finally arrived last Friday.


Beautiful ribbon from our friend Kari at French General.
 I believe she has a new set of dies coming out this winter can't wait to see what is in store.


Honestly it was much too pretty not to order. I decided I would figure out what to do with it after it came in. This is the softest, lushest hand dyed velvet and ribbon. Perfect for a journal, stocking or just to look at. It is going quickly so don't miss out!  
Just arrived this morning, open stock markers to fill in some colors from the Spectrum sets. These are our very favorite pens and you will love the additional colors - and price! Also in, the large stamp blocks great for the Character Construction stamps, mini brads, small hole punch and stamping pads. After our Character Construction Paper Doll Workshop I have a feeling there will be some beautiful Christmas Doll tags.   
Store is full of new items for both the crafters and non crafters. Paper Crown gift certificates are also a big hit !
