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!

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.
