TAH DAH!!! The Grand Reveal!

Here it is! Our Grand Reveal of our beautiful Thanksgiving Table!
We want to thank all of you who came by Saturday to feast your eyes on our cornucopia of embellishment. All of the items were handmade by our wonderful staff of instructors, and our owner, Amy Fleming, whose idea of the table set us off on an adventure we will never forget.

Each instructor also furnished a project sheet, which is available along with most of the supplies you will need to duplicate these items for Your holiday table. Classes in making several of the projects will also be available during the month of November, so check the class calendar, or come by the store for more information, and to get a closer look at all of the all the little goodies! We have a candle trio centerpiece, accordian fold table runner, personal repose' invitations, place card holders, wine glass charms, chair cone decorations, printed menu and napkin rings, and treat bags for each place setting.

Make your holiday table one you will be proud to share with family and friends, and it all starts at Stamp Antonio Arts.
We hope to see you soon.

Hi, Everyone!

Last Saturday was World Card Making Day, and all of us at Stamp Antonio want to take this opportunity to Thank You! for making it a successful one. Although this is only the second year it was celebrated, and our First Year, It was a great success on the whole. It was a busy day for many of us; I had an Accordian Card Class in the morning, and helped with the Christmas Make-N-Takes in the afternoon.

Several of our "regulars" came in and dropped off multiple cards For the Troops! You can come by the store this week and see some of the ones we made, or drop off more if you have some extra's at home that you might want to donate! We will be packing them up, and sending them off next week.

Preparing for World Card Making Day, postponed many of my regular tasks, such as writing my Blog! I got way behind in informing everyone about our "You Be the Stamp Buyer" program. We are now on week #5, and the vendor for this week is : Stampington & Co.

Stampington carries many collections by stamp artists such as, Maureen Blackman, Christine Adolph, Lynne Perrella, and Sandra Evertson. If one of these is YOUR favorite, be sure to come by the store and place a Special Order this week, through October 14, 2007. We just require that you pay in advance for any you order, and we will place the order next Monday.

Before you know it, we will be telephoning you to let you know they have arrived! It's just as simple as that!

I hope you are all preparing for our Halloween Challenge! We have started accepting submissions as of this past Monday, so get your thinking caps on, and start CREATING! The deadline is right around the corner, and will be here in no time. For more information on the Halloween Challenge, check this blog, or stop by the store for a printed version. We have a good supply of Stickles, and glitter, along with color washes and embossing powders! Even more of the NEW Stampendous Fun Flock is ordered and On the Way!

Well, that is about all I can think of for now. I also wanted to thank those of you who voted on my "POLL" located on this blog. I hope you will continue to give me feedback, of anything you might want to see, or have me discuss on this blog in the future. I always appreciate hearing from each and everyone of you. So, until next time, Take care and KEEP STAMPING!
