Hello ladies! As many of you are sorely aware, hurricane Sandy hit hard on the east coast. Many of our members were affected by that nasty storm, one sister in particular lost everything. Her home was ravaged. So much so that they will have to rebuild from the ground up. All of her scrapbook layouts were destroyed, as was her entire scrapbook supply stash. Everything in her home was lost or destroyed.
Last time a tragedy like this struck someone I knew, was when my mother's house bued to the ground. The scrapbook community as a whole came together and rebuilt my mother's scraproom one paper, one tool, one embellishment at a time. And at a time like this, that generosity from her peers is what pulled her through, kept her moving forward in her art, and took a tiny bit of the sting of losing everything away.
It's time to hold another scrappy supply drive ladies. For the next two weeks I will be accepting donations of scrapbook supplies, adhesives, papers, embellishments, tools, gift certificates, letters/cards of support etc. Anything that you can spare will go to help her rebuild the haven she lost to the hurricane. If you are able, please take a tour of your scrap space, and if it is on your heart to help our sister please please do so.
Please ship your donations to me, and I will ship everything out to our sister. The shipping address is:
7979 S. Country Club Pkwy.

Mine may not make it to you in time from Canada… can we send it directly to her?November 30, 2012 at 4:47 pm #190192November 30, 2012 at 5:54 pm #190184
what a wonderful idea. When I send you a box, I will email you so you know it's on it's way, since like Vicki said, it may take longer from Canada.November 30, 2012 at 6:16 pm #190193
Thanks for letting up know, Krissy.
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."November 30, 2012 at 6:39 pm #190194
