Good Grief Girdie!!!!!!

Good Grief Girdie, where are YOU?
If you all are missing Girdie / Jackie rest assured she is missing you as well. Jackie is having some technical problems.  It has been over three weeks since we have heard from her. 

 During that time she has taken a much deserved vacation with her husband Tom and is spending some time outdoors planting flowers
She is busy in her studio and I have been clued in on some of the fun creative ideas that she is working on.  You all are going to love what she has in mind for upcoming classes.  
Hopefully Girdie will be up and running again soon!!

Saturday Class

I spend hours creating a project and putting together kits for our classes at Paper Crown.

  I really love the process.   

But  that time doesn't compare to the time I get to spend with these creative ladies at the Paper Crown.
Getting to know them and their families is a real blessing.  And I am so thankful for the hours of fun I have with them during our classes.

Thank you girls again for a fun and entertaining morning.   Stories, laughing and creativity...
it always so much fun! 

And as always
thank you Cindy for giving us such a great place to create and to Austin for coffee runs,  unloading of cars and so so much more!!

Once upon a time

.....there was a wonderful scrapbook and paper artistry store in Oklahoma City called 
 Paper Crown.   This creative place to gather was owned by the beautiful and talented Cindy England.

One day she gathered 4 Paper Crown instructors 
to tell them she had decided to have her
 first weekend retreat at 

She told us the inaugural Paper Crown retreat will be held the first weekend in April on Friday, April 4th and Saturday, April 5th.The weekend retreat will be a celebration of all the jewels we have right here in our hometown, Oklahoma City. The classes will be held at Paper Crown, the instructors are all our "peeps", and the excursions all in our backyard.  But don't worry, She promised that we are pulling out all the stops and sprinkling it all with glitter making it an amazing weekend. Dorothy said it best " there is no place like home."


For all the complete details please follow this link to

It's going to be a great weekend!! 
Would love to see you there!
