We're Celebrating Summer "Fun-To-Shop" Style!

Wow, where do I begin!  What a wonderful time we've been having this summer... and there's so much to come before school starts!  

Well, here goes....

A snapshot of July includes our classes...

Tammy's paper kids class was a "sell out" all summer ~ the children loved it!  Of course, some of the mom's & dad's just had to join in and watch.

Sherry Hearn introduced her new class "Klassy Krafting with Sherry" in July, enthusiastically demonstrating how to make miniature Garden Nomes for potted plants out of polymer clay!  This month she'll be teaching the basics of making Mosaics.

And during our 8th Anniversary Celebration Party we had a hoot!  Here's Josie, Janie and her sister relaxing over a slice of cake & refreshment during a break in shopping...

And just a couple of our many $25 gift certificate "Gold Marble" Instant Drawing winners... 

Yes, I won!

Their smiles say it all...this is "Fun~To~Shop".  Way to go Gavin!

And no doubt, "Team Alamo" had a ball putting it all together and making it happen ~  Thanks Rhonda, Kim, & Becky!

And don't forget, this Saturday (the 11th), we're having our annual Root Beer Float Day!  FREE yummie vanilla A&W Root Beer floats all day long!   Mmmm... Good!

Until next time... hugs & kisses!  ~Rosa

Happy Springtime Everyone!

Yeaaaaah, it's official today!  It's Springtime!  

Oh how I enjoy spring.  The wonderful rains, the pleasant weather, and everything is popping up green and beginning to bloom!  I love going out into the garden every morning with dad.  We check out the new buds on the trees, and the seedlings popping up.... peeking out of their cozy winter havens.  And the birds are in full chorus serenading their love songs, looking for mates.  It's all absolutely wonderful!

Get out and take advantage of the season this spring, it's meant to be enjoyed by all... and before you know it it'll be over.  And while you're out and about, drop by and see us!  There are so many wonderful Spring, Easter and Fiesta hand crafted items to enjoy... with new items arriving daily!

Oh!  I almost forgot!  I you just happen to have some freshly picked catnip out of your garden... do bring me a sample... I'd LOVE to try it out! ;^)

See you soon, and until richly blessed.

Happy New Year Y'all!

Wow!  What an exciting Christmas Season!  It sure was fun enjoying everyone's company as they shopped for that perfect gift for friends and loved ones.  Of course, the home baked Christmas cookies set out each day didn't hurt either ;^) 

I worked overtime greeting and helping customers, making sure they felt welcome and loved.  Best of all, everyone was smiling, humming Christmas songs, and wishing each other "Merry Christmas" all month long!  Christmas just seems to bring out the best of us.  I hope we carry this spirit with us throughout the New Year.  And, as you can see here in the photo below, I'm catching up on my rest after volunteering as one of Santa's helpers...

Oh yeah!  You should have heard the "I DID?" responses of the FIVE customers who found out they each won $100 Shopping Sprees!  They were SOOO... excited.  Two have already been in and redeemed theirs, and what fun they had! 

As for January, it's going to be a "Fun-To-Shop" month also!  Plus, don't forget about the many classes we host.  In addition to quilting, Crafters Circle, and Miss Kim's paper creations class, this month we have a new class, "Locker Hooking" by Becky!  I tell you, Miss Becky has the master's touch when it comes to crafting with fabric and thread!

Lastly, I had a boo-boo fixed on Monday.  Dad noticed I hadn't eaten well the night before and that I was also having trouble eating my breakfast that morning.  So he took a look in my mouth and found that I had a broken tooth, ouch!  He took me to Heritage Animal Hospital to see Dr. Ehrlund, who had to pull my tooth out!  Dr. E and her staff are the sweetest and most caring I've ever visited.  If you need a new pet doctor, please check her out at, you'll be glad you did!
Until next time, be richly blessed everyone.
