I'm Back, fellow Blog Readers and Stampers!

Hello Everyone,
I am so happy to be back blogging with you about Stamp Antonio Arts, and all of the FUN things we have going on this year at the store!
I was having so many computer issues at the end of 2009 I wasn't able to keep up with all of the posts. Hopefully 2010 will be a better year!

Well, let's see, where to start? How about with our Hero Arts Club. We started this club January 2010 as a gathering of Hero Art Stamp enthusiasts who LOVE Hero Art stamps, and love getting together to stamp and share them with others. The popularity has been overwhelming! We have two meetings each month, either one that meets on a Thursday afternoon from 2:00 pm-4:00 pm, OR an evening meeting that meets on the following day, Friday from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm. You may check our class calendar for the exact date and times each month, but please be sure to register early. Our classroom only accomodates 25 persons at a time, so our numbers are limited. Last month we had a waiting list, so try to sign up early. The meeting fee is only $5 to offset the cost of refreshments and some supplies. Hope to see you there!

We also have lots of NEW classes on the class calander for February. Be sure to come by the store to see the class samples, and sign up for a class or two. Carrie Avery is back teaching a series of classes every Friday during the month of February that are from the NEW Design Originals Book, entitled "Cards and Trinkets!" Many of the projects in this book were made by Carrie for this book and use Tim Holtz' line of Ideaology products, and his many Ranger products, too. Call or come by the store to sign up for one or all of these FUN classes.

We are also excited to announce that we are finalizing the details of the trunk show with Harlee Quinnz Designs Stamp company. They want to come offer some classes and bring a lot of their product to San Antonio near the end of the month. We have a small sampling of their stamps and clip art at the store, that seems to be popular with our younger stampers, as well as those of us who have been stamping for quite awhile. They have some really interesting designs!

February is also our "We Love our Customers" month. Every February we celebrate and thank our customers with a special drawing. The rules of the drawing are simple. You come in to Stamp Antonio Arts, spend $20 or more in merchandise, and in addition to your "stamp buck" you get a chance to enter the drawing that will be held at the end of February. I can't tell you what the prize will be, but I'm sure it will be a good one! You are eligible to enter EVERY DAY, if you see fit to come visit and " spend a little green" with us. We so love to see your smiling faces!

So, until next time, stay happy and Keep on Stampin"!
Mindy and the Team at Stamp Antonio Arts
