Just Like Home

It was just what I needed to help make the Waco store feel like home....a visit, class, goodies & treats from Jackie.

As those of you who have followed the blog know, Jackie has been our teacher extraordinaire for 12 years at Paper Crown. She has taught 100s of classes, made 100s of adorable name tags & baked 100s of Jackie treats. She was my very own guardian angel and I was thrilled to have her teach in Waco last week.


Last spring our good friend Becky introduced us to punch needle and Jackie quickly became an expert and made it her own. It was a perfect choice for her first class here in Waco, especially since Paper Crown will be carrying Jackie's original patterns.

We had a great group of ladies from OKC, Dallas/ Ft. Worth, Waco, Houston and even our favorite Georgia peach made her 1st trip to Waco. Thank you ladies for making the drive to Paper Crown. I love that we are beginning to have a few regulars and I look forward to the next few months of classes.

Thank you again Jackie for making the drive to Waco. It was just what I needed and I hope we can twist your arm to make the trek a couple of times a year- PLEASE!!

If you missed Jackie's class, we have all her punch needle patterns at the store and you can order them by calling the store at 254 224-7436.

Store flip is almost complete, so stop by if you haven't seen the new fall lines.

Thanks Jackie for the pictures- what am I going to do!

If you aren't familiar with Jackie's work, check out her amazing creations on

Good Grief Girdie & Sale

The incredibly talented Jackie Peters aka Good Grief Girdie will be teaching at Paper Crown next Thursday, Sept. 6th from 6-9. Cost is $55 and includes pattern, thread and instruction. Please bring with you your punch needle and embroidery hoop ( Jackie uses the Ultra Punch and 7" Morgan gripping embroidery hoop. Both will be available to purchase at Paper Crown if needed.)  Jackie's talents are endless but her latest passion is punch needle and not only will she be teaching it, but we will be making one of Jackie's original designs. When we first started punch needling it was hard to find cute patterns.  Jackie has taken care of that and designed 6 of her own which will be available at Paper Crown.

For the 12 years Paper Crown was in Oklahoma City, Jackie was my main teacher, dresser of Girdie (our store mannequin), and right hand gal in all things Paper Crown. It does feel strange not to see her every week and that is why I'm over the moon to have her travel to Waco.

If you are not familiar with Jackie's work, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy looking at her blog, I guarantee you will be inspired.

There are only a couple of spaces available in Jackie's class. Call Paper Crown at 254 224-7436 to reserve your spot. Jackie's classes are an event and I promise you will leave wanting more.

Don't Forget!

Only happens twice a year!
Friday 10-5:30
Saturday 10-4 
 ( yes, my store hours will vary during football season.
Sic 'em Bears!)

Who Doesn't LOVE a Great Sale

It's a favorite time of year for Paper Crown girls, 40% off Sale this weekend, Fri., Aug. 31st & Sat , Sept. 1. Twice a year I discount almost everything in the store 40 % off to clear out one season and make room for the new. In addition to the 40% off, I will have a table with 10 cent paper. The girls loved this in OKC and I have a feeling TX will not be any different. Store hours are 10-5:30 on Friday and 10-4 on Saturday ( We will close at 4 on game days- I finally get to be a consistent Baylor Bear fan- sic'em! )

Hope to see you this weekend!
A very special treat is headed our way next week,
 more on this fun event soon.
You won't want to miss it!

It Was a Zoo!


iT WAS A zoo! What a great time we had this Saturday at Jenn's Animal Lulette class. All 13 of us received the same materials but what a fun menagerie was created. Thanks Jenn for guiding and inspiring us. Thank you ladies! You all drove at least an hour to attend class and we had a great day getting to know you and creating with you! You are all appreciated!

Yep you are right! A special treat for me, Amy, my right hand gal from OKC, was here.
It was quite a production to get them all lined up perfectly but such a cute pic.


Those of you at our June Waco weekend recognize our favorite driver? He can't wait for ya'll to come back!

Fall Classes & Events- October

My youngest moved into his college house yesterday, so mom duties called and my posting got a little sidetracked. I apologize for the delay!

However, I think you will think it’s worth the wait. We have a very full and fun October planned for you.

First Friday
October 5th

Sample and additional info. coming soon!

Mixed Media Canvas with Colorfly Studio
Sat., October 13th
Jen DeDonato of Colorfly Studio *

One fun perk of the move is discovering new local artists and then bugging them to death until they agree to teach. Lucky for me, Jen was already following the store and agreed to teach without much begging! I am crazy for all her bright colors and simplicity. I don’t know which I love more- the shoes, dogs or funky florals. You can check out Jen’s work on her Instagram account, colorflystudio. Sample will be here in the next couple of weeks so stay tuned- I know you are going to love it!
As some of you probably know, my neighbor puts on a pretty spectacular event every spring and fall called Silobration. I’ve heard lots of people flood our area of town to check out the outdoor street vendors, eat some pretty amazing food and take in an outdoor concert. Since many of you will be here anyway, we decided to add to the festivities and offer some pretty special classes and a petite Glitter Market. Maybe we will call the weekend of Thurs., Oct 18- Mon., Oct 22 a Glitterbration! 
gorgeous eyeglass cases from Nan Stitcher Extraordinaire
Petite Glitter Market
Thurs., Oct 18- Mon., Oct. 22
Glitter Market is our take on an artist’s fair. It will not be as large as our prior Glitter Markets but a great way to ease into our new home. I have asked a few of my very, very favorite Paper Crown artists, who all have taught at Paper Crown, to join me. All the items will be handmade and are some of my favorite treasures. 

It just wouldn’t be a Paper Crown event without a few classes and you are in for a treat. Noodle (Jenn McGlon of Noodle and Lou) and Doodle (Stephanie Ackerman) are teaming up that weekend for a couple of collaborative classes. You won't want to miss my favorite dynamic duo.
