Holiday Hours & A Recipe!

We thought we better share our store hours over the next couple of weeks.  Stop in and say hi if you are in the area.  There is still a great selection of pretty paper crafting items or grab one of our new gift cards!  I love the new design.  What do you think??

Cranberry Basil Spritzer Recipe (from CountryLiving)
You know we are all about helping you look like a superstar!  Well this is not paper related but certainly appropriate for the holidays.  I made this recipe for our Christmas Open House and Birthday Bash and many of you raved about it so I thought I would share.  It is so festive looking for the holidays PLUS the flavour is fabulous.  Enjoy!

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar to a boil.  Stir to dissolve sugar.  Add 1/2 cup basil leaves, remove pan from heat and let steep for 20 minutes.  Strain syrup and let cool for at least 1 hour.  In a large pitcher, combine syrup, 2 cups unsweetened cranberry juice and 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes).  Fill pitcher with 1 litre chilled club soda, then add 4 lime slices, 1 cup fresh cranberries and 1/2 cup basil leaves.  To serve, pour spritzers over ice and top with a splash more of club soda and garnish with basil.  

Wishing you and your loved ones a safe and happy holiday and only the best in 2018.  Let's make it the best year yet!

Oh my goodness...the last make and take of 2017 is here.  We have had a year of smiles, a year of learning and a year of fun!  Take 10-15 minutes out of your hectic weekend to spend a little time on YOU.  We have a Christmas tag planned.  Join us!  From 10am-3pm at The Paper Pickle!  The coolest thing is that December 16 is The Paper Pickle's 14th Birthday!

We had another incredible offering of tags this year.  For those creative 24 people who joined our exchange, stop in during store hours to grab your bag o' goodies!  You will be wowed....I was!  I want to give everyone time to pick up their tags before posting on the blog.  Look for this post on New Year's Day!

Open House LOVE

The Paper Pickle is like a child to me.  I guess I could say that The Paper Pickle is my first "baby".  Born in 2003, she has had quite the journey.  We have watched her grow and blossom.  We have watched her change with the times, growing and expanding as the hobby exploded.  She has also downsized (she was small but mighty!).  She has had roommates (Dekoko's & Homebaked) over the years.  She has believed that family is number one (Debbie and Homebaked Kitchen).  She has made friends.....many, many friends over the years.  You have been apart of her life and she in yours.

Like any proud mother, I enjoy watching her at her best.  The one day each year that she shines brightest is at the Christmas Open House.  Oh does she shine!  Full of hustle and bustle.  Full of creativity.  Full of love.  This year brought a smile to my face as we were jam packed with people for hours on end.  You were strolling and looking and thinking and making and taking and chatting and catching up and....oh it was wonderful.  

Thank you to those who came out to celebrate the season with us.  I know this is a very busy time and for you to make time to join us meant so much.  I know many of you were here in spirit and this is appreciated too.  You have heard this before but I will never tire of saying "your support means so much".  

There is still lots of time to stop in and grab a few supplies to make a special gift for a loved one.  Grab a few goodies and wrap your gifts like no ones business!  We've got lots of great examples and supplies in stock now.  Beautiful kraft boxes are just begging to be dressed with your own personal style.  Show 'em what you got!  Enjoy the holiday.  Celebrate the process.  And most of all have FUN!  

♥ Kim
