I have for the past 10 years given myself about 4-5 hours to decorate for Christmas............I use to spend days and days and maybe a week to decorate but I got to thinking ( when I got older and hopefully wiser) that not every nook and crannie needed to be decorated......... and let me just say it has simplified my Christmas decorating. I don't stress about it and it makes going into the holiday season a little more relaxing. So here is my home simply decorated ........... You know just adding a little bit of greenery and a few ornaments... Continue reading

Do you ever regret doing something and wish you hadn't..........well I did a couple years ago and now I regret getting rid of this old Christmas tree I had for 36 years.........but it was time! I really loved this tree and it was so easy for me to get out of the attic every year and assemble myself without help. But truth be known it was falling apart and I knew it was not going to last another winter and summer in the hot and cold attic so I gave it to my niece and she ended up not using... Continue reading

Probably one of the most difficult things an artist does is to put a price on your artwork to sell.........( at least for me it is) I wait til the very last minute! I have said many many times I would rather just make stuff and never have to price anything! No easy solution!..... I hope this coming Saturday Nov. 4 at the Annual Paper Crown Glitter Market you will stop by to see some of the most talented vendors who are local and some who are from other states (Texas)! The times are from 10-3:00..........even if you are going... Continue reading

Welcome to the Fall Paper Crown Glitter Corral Retreat 2017................ Thursday afternoon we all met in front of the Paper Crown to board the bus and headed north on our Pioneer Woman adventure..........The girls were all greeted with a bandana(each monogrammed with their name) lined bucket filled with these delicious western theme cookies, trail mix and of course a coloring postcard to color on the way up (designed by our own Angie) to keep the girls busy for the 2 hour and 15 minute ride. I think our bus driver Mike is having second thoughts about 30 women in a... Continue reading
