Tools for a Creative Weekend

These new goodies from Prima will help drive away the rainy day blahs this weekend and inspire your creativity. If you haven't tried out the Prima watercolors you will love them!

With a Cherry (or possibly a crown) on Top

Drumroll please.... here is third project for Paper Crown Glitter Retreat. An adorable "Queen of our Hearts" doll by the talented Jenn McGlon. Over two class segments, Jenn will guide you in sculpting, painting and embellishing this cutie. Don't you just love the swan! You girls will be seeing a lot of those retreat weekend.

One suggestion, wait until after Retreat to get a manicure. Clay has a way of messing up a beautiful set of nails and another tip, the shorter the nails the better.
 I know these projects have you all excited for Glitter Retreat and we are so very excited to treat you all like Queens for the weekend. See you in 20 days!

Royal Treasure

That is hopefully what you will think when you see two of the gorgeous projects those lucky 24 ladies will be creating at the 2017 Paper Crown Glitter Retreat.

They are gorgeous aren't they! Jackie and Angie really pulled out all the stops to create this beautiful queen and crown that fit perfectly with our theme. They are even more stunning in person , I promise!

Jenn has had a bad bug and is just getting back into the swing of things but I guarantee her project will also leave you sighing! It is going to be a fun retreat ladies- just a few short weeks away.

If you get excited over a new pen....

Do I have a treat for you! These aren't your ordinary colorful mechanical pencils but the newest and most colorful! The color of the pencil is the color of the lead! These are great for small spaces in planners and now if you make a colorful mistake, you can erase!

I love these watercolor brush pens; perfect for brush calligraphy and the colors are so luscious! I tried these out with just a few colors but after seeing how pretty they were, I think I ordered them all.

Restocked on these brush calligraphy staples- Zebra disposables are the perfect tips for learning and the basics and when you are ready for a little color love the Cocoiro pen bodies and refills.

Love these orange, coral and peach hues with a little turquoise

AND if you shop today....

A little tasty treat left over from last night's class

if you love Liberty of London, you will love what I am unpacking...

Spontaneous Sale

A little spontaneity is a good thing. It's been a quiet week so why not start the backroom sale a day early! Here's a small sampling of what could be yours at a deep discount.

The items in the backroom sale are either .10, .99, 3.99, 8.99 or 40% off. There is something for everyone.


I bet many of you saw these cute globes at Anthropologie a few seasons ago. They were adorable but a little pricey so one of my new favorite companies, one canoe two, has come up with an affordable solution.

These globes are a little smaller and not hand painted but come with the cutest embellishments so you can create your own Wanderlust art.

It's a fun, unique weekend project!

I'm already set up for the sale so what the heck-

Big Backroom sale Friday & Saturday. 
  Paper for a dime, .99 tables and 3.99 tables

March Classes

We are preparing for Glitter Retreat in April but have managed to squeeze in a few fun classes to tide you over until the big event.

I'm also going to do a swap that serves two purposes- you will get to go home with 4 fun tags and we will use them for a bit to dress Miss Gertie until she fitted for her royal gown. This swap is easy, just decorate 4 tags- any size, any way and we will use those to create a dress for Gertie. On Monday, April 17th you can come by and select 4 tags from the pool.

This Saturday, March 4th the backroom will be full of great sale items- 40% off Valentine's, paper for a dime, .99 tables and 3.99 tables. It's a great time to stock up on recently retired lines and embellishments. I promise this is not old products but things you actually will want and use.
