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!

I'd love to make some samples for her - I'll do some this weekend and bring 'em in. It's craft community service.

You guys are great! I saw Maryann at dinner just now and told her we were "on it." She cried. How cool is that?

this is truly the quintessence of random act of kindness - you've certainly pulled my heart strings - i could cry - it's not often that you find such pure and warm intentions - thinking and talking about it is one thing, but actually doing it and making good with this is another - i think i found myself another angel! thanks angela, you're a doll! you truly ARE a happy stamper! warm hugs...well sorry it's truly warm hugs since we're down here in orlando! maryann from rhode island

Angela, what a great idea! I've been inspired many times by the samples; that has to be a big part of any store.

I'll see if I can get some up to you before the 10th - I've got a few ;)
