Life is like a box of chocolates!

Or better yet...
a box of crazy fun embellishments for your shadow box!
This is some of the many fun little items up for grabs in Jack & Cat's Lost Dreams Configurations Print Tray class. The fun part was that you could pick and choose any one of these items, and then decide if you wanted to rust them up! Everything looks great all rusty and old.


We had such a fun week last week with all of the out of town Creative Escapers! We are recovering from all the crazy fun and putting NEW product out on the shelves and reordering all of our staples. This also means...you guessed it~ moving things around. Nothing stays in one place long at Mystic Paper. It's time to reorganize and re-merchandise all kinds of things.
This week look forward to a NEW magazine we will carry in the shop, NEW colors of Divine Twine for Halloween and Christmas, NEW 7 Gypsies, and NEW colors of our beloved Vintage Seam Binding.
Keep watching for more!

Snap Shots from the Weekend...

Saturday's Classes...
Were amazing!
Here are a few pictures of the "Sweet Tweet" Perpetual Calendar class. Tons of busy work and tons of trinkets. If you haven't made one of these yet, you'll have you're chance. Shirley keeps making more calendars and she's teaching another calendar class in August!

Here are a couple of the roses that were made in the Ribbon Roses 101 Class. Everyone had fun learning the how to's and the how not to's of ribbon roses!

Perfect roses made easy, that's the way...uh huh, uh huh...we like it!
