First Day is a Wrap

I think the first day of almost anything is the hardest. I woke up very early Friday morning with all kinds of questions and fears- what if no one shows up, what if they just don’t like it, what if the computer goes crazy ( or it’s operator) , what if I run out of receipt tape- I didn’t say any of these were even remotely logical. Those early morning hours were filled with both excitement and dread.

I’m happy to say I did have customers, the computer and I got along pretty well and I was blessed to see dear friends and the sweetest new ones. 

A special thank you to my OKC girls for all your sweet words of encouragement and even a few treats. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of ya’ll and am reminded of our friendship. You may not be in Waco but believe me, you are here and so much a part of this store. 

Thanks to the ladies who drove in from Ft Worth, Austin and Athens to welcome me in our new home. It was such a kind gesture. The Waco locals were so welcoming and reassuring that my decision was the right one. I met the sweetest young lady at First Friday and I hope to see you again- we need to paint together Mariam. 

Here’s some pics of the store, still work to do but we are off to a good start.











We are off to a great start. Hope you have a great week and I look forward to meeting you and sharing our " Happy Place"

Opening this Friday, June 1st


I am beyond thrilled to announce that Paper Crown will be open for business this Friday, June 1st at 10 am. After a month of unpacking, sorting, arranging, painting and inputting ( oh the hours of inputting every little thing in the store), we are ready and excited to get this new chapter started.

I can't wait to meet you and share our " happy hub" with you. So if you are in Waco or passing through, we hope you will stop by and be inspired. We are at the corner of Franklin and 5th in the gorgeous Praetorian Building, 601 N. Franklin.

Thank you to those who call this place home. You have been a blessing and are loved. We will meet again and are bound by our deep friendship. ox

Our Last Week In OKC



It is with a heavy heart I announce this will be our last week in Oklahoma City. We have had an absolutely amazing run and even more than keeping the store running for 12 years, I am most proud of the community that has been created through the store and classes. We are a group that has lived life together and lived it well and creatively. Thank you! I have been blessed beyond measure and I am leaving a part of my heart here.

We will be open this week, Mon. April 23-Thurs., April 26 10-6. We are staying open later this week to help those that work.

Tuesday will be our last class at Paper Crown. It will be a great time and is a large sold out class. Due to Tuesday's class, the back room sale items will be removed Tuesday at 3. Class supply list is on Jackie's blog, http://goodgriefgirdie.typepad.com/blog/2018/04/class-supply-list.html

Thursday will be our last day open to customers. To say thank you, we will be having a store wide sale Thursday only- 25% off storewide.

All week we will have discounted items in the back room. Back room papers (excluding cardstock)  will be a dime and as items are purchased, I will restock throughout the week. I also have tables of items that are 3.99 and .99.

Once again thank you for supporting Paper Crown and I hope to be able to give you a hug and say good bye. Love, Cindy

It is Still Coming In

I think I am in a bit of denial- very few things packed and I'm still getting in new product, and this isn't the last shipment. Mary and Elaine the last shipment is strictly for you two, two lines will be coming in next week for you to shop and then boxed up.

Here's a peek of what is new...


Two new lines from Webster's Pages

Fun new Traveler's Notebooks from Webster's Pages

Love this mustard suede traveler's notebook

Beautiful spiral notebook


Love  this die and we also have the matching stamp


We got in a couple of favorites from Angie's Paper Crown Collage class. we used the stamp on the right in class and the one on the left is new (at least new to PC). Everyone loved the gold glitter paste. I can't hold but you can call with your credit card.
 
Restocked our favorite watercolors. Same watercolors just new packaging.
