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, http://papercrownokc.blogspot.com/search?q=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! )

Wanderlust

Summer is the official wanderlust season. Who doesn't love a relaxing trip to the lake, the beach, mountains or a leisurely road trip. Not exactly sure Disney fits in that category but it sure is a " magical" kind of fun.

This new line " Pastimes" sure captures that feeling. Another plus, the state of Oklahoma is on 4 of the papers. No longer have to search to no avail. The vintage Disney items are charming as well.




 
Also just in a new shipment of Somerset magazines- Home, Artful Blogging, Where Women Create, Bella Grace & Bella Grace Field Guide. Perfect for summer reading.


And continuing on our theme for today-

Weekend with Julie Haymaker is Almost Here




When I saw this winter at the Craft show that Julie had released a line of molds to create her fun shrinkets , I knew she was on my bucket list for the store. Luck us, she has agreed to come to OKC next weekend (during the heat of summer I might add) to teach a weekend of classes.  All the classes I had to choose from were amazing but I decided since this was her first time at Paper Crown, I would start relatively easy with three jewelry classes. I am already looking forward to her next visit where we can create one of her amazing dolls. http://www.juliehaymaker.com/

The three classes are Friday, July 21st; Saturday, July 22nd and Sunday, July 23rd. Each class features her shrinkets and I know will be a fun new experience for us. The Sunday class is almost at capacity and the others have a few seats available. If you sign up for all three of Julie's classes, you will receive a 33% discount at Paper Crown on all your weekend shopping, excluding class costs. Also our friend Teresa Young said she found a Groupon for the Skirvin at a nicely discounted rate so what a great opportunity to make a fun OKC/Paper Crown weekend for those of you out of towners.

To reserve your spot in any or all three classes, call Paper Crown at 405 848-2389.

New Discovery

Love it when I stumble across a new line or company that is fresh and different. These new stamps just arrived at Paper Crown and I think they are perfect to inspire some summer projects.

These are new stamps from Sandra Evertson. They go nicely with her Artifacts collection and who isn't in love with Frida !

Another Artists rendition of Frida- she is everywhere


Quirky at it's best!

 
Love these faces!


 
I have a feeling these will go quickly so come check them out- and don't have to wait for the reorder : )
