Ravages of Irma

Hi everyone.  The hurricane went RIGHT OVER US in Davenport, FL in the middle of the state.  It was scary and unbelievably tretcherous!  The damage is unbelievable.  Whole trees taken right out of the ground, roots and all!  Lanai cages around the backs of most houses just mangled and ripped off. Shingles were flying around like snowflakes. The rain was like daggers hitting my bedroom window.  It's really just hard to wrap your head around when you see it!   


I'm not coping very well.  The heat of course has been around 90 with humidity so dense you just melt if you make any movement.  No gas available, no ice available, no electricity, no sleep and lanterns are your new bff. 

We finally got power back last night.  Thank goodness.  Now for the clean up.  It's been a rough month for me, I gotta tell y'all, BUT I made it through without a melt down (it was gonna happen soon though, let me tell ya!) I think I need to craft now.  I need some happy.  And just a few minutes with some ink and stamps will probably make me a little bit happy. :D

Ribbon Carousel pics

The wooden Ribbon Carousels that were used for ribbon storage at the Ribbon Carousel store, are solid wood with either 8 or 4 dowels, depending what you are storing.  They are around 13.5 - 14 inches tall.  These are heavy duty carousels.

Happy 4th of July!

Hey there!  I was needing a July 4th card for a party tomorrow and thought I would use Betsy's PTI MIM #290 Challenge to use both stenciling and masking.  Now THAT is a great challenge! Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge this week is Red, White and/or Blue.  I used the  Guiding Lights Stamp Set and Red, White and Blue Stamp Set to make this very "outside the box" 4th of July card.
