Surprise class just added!

Just in time to squeeze this in before Valentines Day. Suzette has created another layered quote book that is perfect for giving to your loved one!

Suzette is becoming quite well known for her "quote" books. She just loves quotes and uses them alot. This layered book is no exception and it is so pretty that Suzette's daughter declared it "the best book she has ever made"! That means alot coming from your own child.
Since we are so close to Valentines Day this class will be taught only once on Thursday, February 7th 6:00 P.M. to 8:30 P.M. The cost is $28. Call us right away, this class is sure to fill up fast!

You all know how we HEART our UPS guy Jeff (mostly because he brings us most of our really cool product). Well- since he is sporting his long UPS uniform lately, we're wondering when he will be bringing out the shorts again!

Give a guess! The person with the closest date of when Jeff shows up in shorts again will win a Mystic Paper gift certificate. We will post the winner to let everyone know who the lucky winner is! So, what are you waiting for? Get to guessing!

And for those of you who are out of towners, we do ship, so you can guess too!

Wow! Where have we been?

We have been MIA from blogland for a few days now. For starters Jennifer has been gone for a whole week now with a bad back. A really bad back. So bad she can't walk "back". She is getting better but still can't be at the store for very long at all. Mystic Paper has been very busy. It seems Downtown Mesa "is the place to be. Who knew! With Jennifer MIA there are some classes that aren't on the web site. Here is a list of upcoming classes in no particular order. Call the store for dates and times.
Memory Clipboard with Suzette

Valentine Candy Dish with Heather

Victorian Heart with Heather
Good Things Book with Emily

This class will be at the Creative Cafe and is only $25.00

Thinking Of You Card Tin + four cards with Suzette

These next two pictures I took from Jennifer's fancy picture files!

So there you have it! Our classes keep getting better and better and February is going to bring some "surprise" classes. We'll get more details out to you soon!

A Mystic paper Shout Out!

We've been noticing lately just how many of our customers, friends, and teachers are being published in these wonderful magazines. Congratulations to all of you!

On page 130 of Somerset Life sweetie pie Carlene Federer added Creative Living Idea #23 to the publication. Two full pages devoted to Carlene's colorful idea!

And look who's in Somerset Memories...

Page 16...Carlene again! She submitted a collage to their Faux Family Album call for creations. Her collage is all about love and was deservedly chosen.

Page 62 - Shannon Sawyer. Shannon created a mixed media collage in honor of her mother. Truly an amazing work of art.

Page 78 - Carol Wingert. Carol created an 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 layout entitled "The Writing on the Wall. Carol is an incredible artist and we love it when she comes to visit!!

Page 81 - Our very own Judy Bidwells creation for Sew Somerset was not only published in Sew Somerset but they chose it to advertise the magazine. How's that for a compliment!

Somerset Studio published Carolyn Addie. She created a canvas project that is simply beautiful. You can find it on page 109!

There you have it! All of the wonderful customers, friends, and teachers that have been recognized by all of the Somerset publications. Congratulations to all of you! And of course, you can pick up all of these magazines at Mystic Paper!

More Vintage Valentine Loveliness...

Jennifer put these vintage Valentine collection packs together from our own personal stash of vintage heaven. Inside each pack you will get 4 sheets of 12 x 12 paper, 1 piece of vintage fabric approximately 8 x 12, 1 large piece of vintage wallpaper, 2 different colors of vintage crepe paper, 2 vintage valentines, 3 yards of vintage ribbon, some vintage buttons, and a sheet of vintage heart stickers! There's some serious fun in these collection packs! There are just a few since our vintage stash is limited so if you want one don't wait too long.

Here's a peek at Josies upcoming "Found Objects" soldering class. These will work great on a bracelet and if you have any found objects of your own that you want to use bring them along.

Need a cute little teacher gift? We've got an upcoming class that is just the thing. Join Heather to make this vintage flavored candy box from a ribbon spool.

Fill it with some candy and there you have it, instant gift and best of all, handmade! It means so much more.
