Episode 170~ Blah... Good News & Bad News

Hi there Everyone,

What a day it has been in our home today! As you will see in addition to my purchase of some darling paper packs from Die Cuts With A View (DCWV) we had a major flood at our house. Ugh!!! When it rains, it pours ~ Luckily, our insuurance company responded quickly & clean up at this point is being taken over by the professionals. My scrubby & I worked all night to clean up the water & drying out all that we could. Now the professionals have pulled up carpeting & begun drying the walls & insulation out. I just kept in mind, that these are just material things that can be fixed or replaced & that my family is fine. Even with Thanksgiving right around the corner, we will be home counting our blessings with our children even if the hoouse is torn apart. Hopefully all will be back to normal by Christmas ~

If you are near a JoAnns Craft store, they have all their paper packs on sale for 40% Off, woo-hoo! EK Success Punches are also 40% Off! Gotta love a good sale my friends...

Have a restful evening & count your blessings. No matter what your circumstances might be right now, things will ALWAYS get better & keep moving forward. Never look back , keep looking forward is my motto.
