For the do-gooders!
I posted earlier about a shop that had major roof damage during the hurricane. Well, I just had lunch with one of my friends, a shop owner from Rhode Island. I had seen her at the show at the very end of March, and about a week after that show, her shop (part of a strip mall) burned down! I hadn't heard! So, she's been closed all of this time, trying to find another location that would work for her. She's finally going to be re-opening later this month. That's a long time for folks to have been without their LSS! I was thinking that it would be a ton of work to replace all the product, but then it dawned on me that the bigger problem would be replacing all the SAMPLES! Holy cow - can you even imagine? She's been open almost exactly the same amount of time I have, and I know how many samples we have. (Well, actually I don't know how many samples we have - but I know it's a lot)! I think it would be fun to make some card samples to send to her with some "well wishes" greetings inside. She carries a lot of the same stamp companies that I do - Hero Arts, Memory Box, A Muse, Impression Obsession, etc. If you'd like to make a card sample for Maryann at Bella Art in Rhode Island and bring it into the shop, I'll send them off to her on Oct. 10. I know she'll be very touched that her "stamping sisters" are thinking of her!
