Viva La Fiesta ~ It's Time To Celebrate "Fun-To-shop" Style!

I love April!  It's a special month this year filled with celebration.... beginning with two fun filled and colorful weeks of Fiesta, and ending with the worshipful observance of the greatest event of God's expression of Love for mankind ~ Easter!  We hope you get out and enjoy Fiesta this year, and are richly blessed with Easter.

The latest news here at Alamo Craft Company includes our first annual Midnight Madness Crafts & Crops Night event tomorrow night, April 1st.  From 6pm ~ Midnight a whole gang of ladies will be dinning, crafting and cropping the night away in a half dozen + classes!  I hope you are able to join them, they're going to have a blast! 

Also, dad put the Spring garden in last week.  It looks beautiful with all the colors and new flowers.  While I was having my morning go around yesterday a pretty Ruby-Throated hummingbird dropped in next to me and filled up on nectar.  I was so well hidden, it didn't see me!  It was so cute, and so small.  I don't pick on anyone smaller than me, so it was safe. ;^)

Well, until next time, I hope to see you in the store checking out all the wonderful new items and seasonal merchandise that's coming in.  Don't be surprised to find me snoozing after lunch, I love my naps!

I'm looking over... a four leaf clover!

My goodness, is the year flying by or what!  It's March already, and there's so much going on this month!  Daylight Savings Time, St. Patrick's Day, and the official start of SPRING!  I love spring... the refreshing rains it brings and greens up the garden, the birdies (that dad feeds for me) begin to get all flirty, and all the ladies get to wear their new clothes they bought on sale!  Speaking of which, be sure to drop by and check out all the new accessories and jewelry that's coming in for Spring, Easter, and Fiesta ~ it's beautiful!

If you haven't participated in one of our classes yet, please give mom a call and see if she can place you in one that'll make your heart smile.  Shouldn't be a challenge, given there's six classes this month, each with their own venue and teacher.

BTW, we're having our first annual Midnight Madness Crafts & Crops Night on April 1st, from 6PM ~ Midnight.  And that's no joke!  Here's your chance to craft the night away, with over 6 classes & teachers offering... card making, paper crafts, brag books, tote bags, painting on wood, cookie decorating, decorative canvas wall hangings, and more!  Jane will also be offering a Crop & "Make & Takes" in her Scrapbooking Factory as well!  $10 gets you dinner plus the first class of your choice.  Multiple classes of each venue will be offered throughout the evening, and you're welcome to take as many as you like ~ each at their own individual low cost.  Bring your basic supplies, but most classes will come with a kit.  There will also be several Cricut, die-cut, and sewing machines available, plus irons and ironing boards, etc.  * Seats are limited, and reservations are required.  Drop by the front desk or call mom for details.  509-6007

Lastly, I have one request... When ever you come in to shop and visit with the gang, please deodorize your purses.  There's nothing more frustrating than digging around in one looking for that snack and it's not in there!
