Paper Anthology has weathered Winter Storm Diaz and will re-open tonight with normal Friday evening hours from 5-9pm. Shari’s Mistletoe Magic Class is proceeding as scheduled from 6-9; students who happen to own a Wendy Vecchi STAY-tion are requested to bring it along with them to class.
Paper Anthology will be closed this evening, Thursday, December 15th due to winter weather conditions. We HOPE to be open tomorrow evening (Friday 12/16) but it all depends what Winter Storm Diaz throws down tonight and tomorrow. Stay tuned to this blog (and our social media pages) for updates. Members of Shari’s “Mistletoe Magic” class, which is scheduled to take place Friday evening from 6-9pm, will receive an email if we need to cancel. Please email any questions or concerns to email@example.com. Meanwhile we plan to KEEP WARM AND CRAFT ON and hope you’ll do the same! ♥
Not only did we have the most participants ever in this year’s Paper Anthology Holiday Card Swap, the cards themselves are also record-settingly beautiful, clever and inspiring. Many thanks to everyone who participated, your Swap Cards are waiting, you can pick them up any time the store is open: Saturday 10-5; Monday 10-2; Tuesday 10-15 and Thursday and Friday evening, 5-9pm.
If you didn’t participate, don’t worry, we’ll have a Holiday Swap again next year AND… maybe even another swap before then, on a different theme? As usual, any new events will be announced here on the PA Blog, so stay tuned for updates.

Just a reminder to our 2022 Holiday Card Swap participants, please drop off your five cards before 5pm this coming Saturday, December 3rd. We’ve got a record number of twenty-one swappers this year, and based on the three or four early-bird drop-offs we’ve seen so far, the cards are more clever and beautiful than ever. By the way, if you make an optional 6th card, we’ll be proud to display it in the store for everyone to see and admire!
PS: The cards in the photo above feature Prima Marketing’s Candy Cane Lane collection, now available in-store.
Wishing you the very happiest and healthiest of Thanksgiving Holidays! Paper Anthology will observe regular hours this Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and we’ll be closed Thursday and Friday evening for the holiday. Stay tuned for a sneak peek at what we’re cooking up for Small Business Saturday… we hope you’ll join us then!
Join Shari For this lovely holiday class where you will create a 4 card set and matching box. The box is sized to hold A2 cards, but would also be perfect for that special present… or give the box and cards as a gift set! The class features the ever popular create-in-quads stencils from Taylored Expressions. The lovely sentiment set is from Taylored Expressions as well. Please bring your basic class kit as well as a Wendy Vecchi Staytion, if you have one. (We all highly endorse this wonderful tool when working with stencils!)
Would you like to receive five beautiful, unique, handmade holiday cards, created by your fellow Paper Anthologists? Then join us for the 2022 Paper Anthology Holiday Card Swap!
