Wonderful A Muse Weekend!

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Geeta Suggs for her wonderful classes held Saturday, June 21, 2008 at Stamp Antonio Arts. We had such an amazing turnout, and all left with bags and pockets full of beautiful cards, thanks to Geeta and A Muse! These were our first classes in our newly remodelled classroom, and we were glad that the remodel allowed our students plenty of room to work on their cards. (I have photos of this past weekend's classes to post, and will do so as soon as possible.)

Geeta will be returning to Stamp Antonio Arts on Wednesday, July 9, 2008 to help us celebrate AMuseapalooza! with a Make-N-Take from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm, and then a class using the never-seen-before A Muse Holiday Stamps from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. AMuseapalooza is a fun-filled event, and if you like rubber stamping, you need to make plans to come by and join us! There will be many exciting things going on during AMuseapalooza, so be sure and watch this blog, and our web site for announcements of the upcoming events and classes.

Until next time,
Keep on Stamping!

The Classroom Make Over is Complete!

The Make Over is complete, and our classroom looks beautiful. There is so much more room once we got everything up off of the floor. If you haven't had a chance to come by the store and see it, please do! We can't wait to show it off, and have more classes in it.

This coming weekend, Geeta Suggs, the A Muse stamp demonstrator for our area, will be here with three card classes scheduled on Saturday, June 21, 2008. There are still openings in the classes, so please call us to sign up as soon as possible at 210-342-6217 if you are interested.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Erin, Carol, and Amy for all their hard work remodelling the classroom. They spent many long hard hours painting and re-organizing, and making our classroom area a more inspiring and creative place to work.

The Classroom Makeover is Underway!

The merchandise has been packed in boxes, the empty displays have been taken down, the walls have been primed and basecoated. "The Classroom Makeover is Underway!

We have been talking about remodelling our classroom area for sometime now, and it is finally underway. The store is still open for business, and we haven't destroyed anything out front, yet! The store is still pleasantly shopable, but all workshops, Artist's Night Out, and classes for the week have been cancelled while we work on renovating the classroom and stockroom area.

Hopefully we will have it all put back together by this coming weekend, but it is taking a little longer than expected.

We are trying to lighten the ambience of the room and make it a pleasant place where creativity will flow freely. By rearranging and reorganizing the materials back there, we should be able to accomodate more classroom students, especially since we are scheduling more nationally known Artists to teach classes and workshops in the coming months.

Stay tuned to the blog for more updated photos on the classroom makeover, we will let you know when it is done, and ready for your inspection.
