Boxes Are Starting to Stack Up

It has been a busy week and while we have been preparing and creating with Julie Haymaker, the boxes have been stacking up. I have about 7 I haven't even opened yet-eek! So I'm hoping for a fairly quiet day to make some headway on the pile of boxes.

I was able to unpack a little yesterday and if this is any indication of what lies ahead- it looks like a great week!

Restocked and added some new Sandra Evertson stamps- so fun!

We have some of Julie's Shrinket line so you can continue making these amazing shrinks or if you couldn't make the classes, you can learn what all the fun fuss is about. We have molds, kits, some shrink & other fun goodies.

Come check out all the new goodies!

Stephanie Rubiano @ Paper Crown

This year, each month we have had a special guest artist come teach at Paper Crown to shake things up a bit and push us outside our comfort level. We have learned lots of new techniques and surprised ourselves at how much fun doing something new can be.

August is no exception and the talented Stephanie Rubiano will guide us through a new area of Mixed Media. Stephanie has a way of giving those vintage images we all love, a fresh fun twist.

Stephanie will be at Paper Crown for a trio of classes Fri., August 4th-Sun., August 6th. If you have ever wanted to try your hand at encaustic medium, Stephanie is your teacher. The photos are lovely but just do not do justice to her work- swing by the store to get a look.

No Shrinking Violets Here

What a fun weekend we had with the talented Julie Haymaker. She taught three unique jewelry classes with her Shrinket products and we are hooked. We just thought we loved shrink before but Julie helped us take it to a whole other level.

We had a small class Friday night but it was the perfect way to wind down a workweek. These necklaces turned out beautiful!

Not only did Julie teach class but we were able to have a " mini" Glitter Market and shop Julie's art and fabulous Shrinkets and supplies.



It was a tricky one but these ladies mastered it and the results are gorgeous- great job ladies!

No rest for Julie on Sunday it was a very full house creating this gorgeous necklace.

Wish I had gotten a picture of all the necklaces but it gets a little crazy at the end. They were all beautiful and we all had a great time being together creating with Julie. Julie thank you again for coming to OKC and we can not wait until we see you again. We are looking forward to more Shrinkets and ready to tackle a doll! Safe travels home friend! ox
I have some of Julie's supplies including molds, kits, some shrink, and beads for sale at Paper Crown so you can continue creating.

Thank You Friends!

This weekend we are having a FABULOUS time with Julie Haymaker ( so much more on that soon! ) but I felt today was the perfect time to say a very sincere and heart felt THANK YOU!

So very often when we make a donation or help an organization, we have an idea where our contribution is going but very few times, if ever, do we actually see the person that we are helping. I am so happy to show you who so very many of you actually helped.

You might recall I had a blog post titled Meet Hannah,
One of Katie's college roommates passed and her family and friends were working together to raise money to build a lifehome for 12 girls at the Family Legacy Village in Zambia, Africa. A couple of times a portion of the Paper Crown earnings were designated to Hannah's House and you my friends, were very generous. Well this morning at approx. 1am our time, Hannah's House opened and 12 girls  received a new safe lovely home and you were a part. I sent a little bit of Paper Crown to Africa, the girls are well stocked in art supplies and hopefully they will enjoy them as much as we do.

Thank you all for helping to make this possible- you all are angels and there is an angel in heaven ( possibly wearing sock monkey pjs that is smiling at you! )
