It's Crunch Time

A little less than two weeks until the Paper Crown Glitter Retreat. A paper doll assembly line was buzzing this weekend, Austin was busy making a little something for the Paper Attic & I tested our Friday night meal. Austin wishes we would have these more often since I usually cook during the week but not on the weekends when he is here.

I will have supply lists and a more detailed itinerary to you lucky girls soon. We are so excited to have a sell out crowd and can't wait for the festivities to begin.

Great News!!!! Stephanie is a go!

As many of you know, our friend Stephanie has had a very rough start to the year. Stephanie has been battling health issues since before Christmas; however, I am so very pleased to tell you things are FINALLY looking up and she is on the mend.

Selfishly, I was pretty worried that her trip to Paper Crown was going to have to be cancelled or postponed but hallelujah, I talked to Stephanie Monday and we are a GO!!! Yippee Skippy!

I will have a description of her classes soon but for now I can tell you she will be teaching an evening class Friday, June 17th and two classes on Saturday, June 18th. As soon as I get the class information, we will begin sign up.  Class size is limited so it will be a first come basis and class payment will be required for registration.

Please keep Stephanie in your prayers so she will be able to be at full throttle soon and not get too tired teaching. You might also send the birthday girl a greeting- Today is her special day.

Those that can't wait, her April "Encourage" kit arrived yesterday and you will love it!

Please check the blog/ Facebook regularly the next week or so - I would hate for you to miss out!

Happiest of Birthdays Stephanie!
The Okie girls can't wait to see you!

It's All Good

Of all the many boxes I get to open, when these arrive, I am at my happy place. A box full of gorgeous colors and softness. I adore this velvet. So much so that I kinda hide it a few days just so I can enjoy the full spectrum of colors before they disappear one roll at a time. It's time to share though...

Big Sigh!!!
For some reason anytime I have a big event (retreat) I seem to think it's the perfect time to tackle some cleaning/organizing project rather than working on the task at hand. Once we took the3 very small kids on an overseas vacation at Christmas. However, instead of packing strollers, diapers, a mountain of clothes (this was before bag restrictions) and ski stuff, I decided to clean my entire basement (possibly the last time it has all been clean). Well, true to form I did it again. However yesterday's little whirlwind has resulted in lots of goodies on the .99 and 3.99 tables. I wasn't intending for a sale but it just happened. Soooo come and shop some great deals and help me make room for our Glitter Retreat at the end of the month.

épuisé- French for so very sorry but the Paper Crown Retreat is Sold Out!

We are thrilled to have a full house for the retreat. For those of you attending, supply list and itinerary will be coming shortly. In the meantime, I know many of you are working on your swaps- a Character Construction paper doll, bracelet and shoe full of flea market treasures. Everyone just needs to make one of each and we will swap at the retreat.  You can participate in one, two, three or none of the swaps; the choice is yours. However, I guarantee if you don't do one, you will be wishing you did.

We are honored you will be joining us for a Parisian adventure!

Can't think of two more opposite lines but both are cute. Love this " Super hero" line for all those little Super hero wannabes in our lives. Second is a new beautiful line from Europe. What makes this special is it is primarily lavender. Those of you purple lovers know, for some reason this color is very sparse so come and get it while it lasts. Another bonus the backs have a very small pattern perfect for cards or paper dolls.

New Prima arriving today
