I have not been here for a while. I was on vacation in California for ten days and we got back last night (7/2/09) and there had been a "freak flood" and our family room and basement and my scrapbook room had been flooded with two feet of water. We had a friend staying here and she and a couple of our other friends got the water out pretty quickly.
Unfortunately, we lost our washer and dryer, our furniture and alot of "memories."

I lost my SU cardstock, my A Muse paper and my Bazzill paper. I have been breaking down in tears off and on today and we are now exhausted with the "clean up." Some of my stamps got wet but people have told me that they will be okay once they dry out.

You know, I can lose my furniture, my washer and dryer and that is just the way it is. But when a mother nature does something freaky and starts ruining my cardstock, I tend to be a little pissed off.

Whenever I have started feeling so for myself today, I keep remembering Hurrican Katrina victims and think that they lost everything, including lives so losing paper is surely not going to kill me. I have to keep things in perspective.

Hopefully, soon, I will be able to start scrapping and cardmaking again and start posting.


  1. OMG! That's TERRIBLE! I hope you can add it to your insurance claim! Just think - shopping for replacement paper will be FUN!!

  2. So sorry to hear that. I hope things start looking up soon.

  3. How horrible, I'm so sorry to hear it. You have a great attitude though, and things will get better

  4. Tammy, I am sorry to hear of this! It must be very frustrating and maddening to have something like this happen...

  5. I am so sorry to hear this! I am glad your family is safe.

  6. I am sorry for your loss. Paper does really matter! I am glad it was only material stuff that was lost.

  7. Oh dear, awful luck on the flood! I understand why you woud be angry totally! Hope its covered on insurance.
    Hope it all gets sorted soon xx
