Back to stamping. Woohoo!

Okay, I know that I have been a little behind on my stamping business, but I am BACK!  I wanted to share some pictures of what I was dealing with last weekend with TS Fay, and clean up this weekend.  I took this standing on our front porch.

Front This is from the front porch looking down the front of the house.  The stamping room is the first room right behind this wall.  There is actually a driveway and a ditch between us and our neighbors.  I don't have a picture of it but our old pool ladder floated out of our back yard over by our neighbors cars (the 2 that you can see in the background).

Side No we do not live on or by a lake.  This is our back yard.  The water did come up on the deck but did not get in the house.

Back yard 

Our shed sit on blocks about a foot off the ground.  The shed did get about 2-1/2 feet of water.  I sure can deal with that and no water in the house.  However, with the water creeping up to the door, I was busy inside moving everything off the floor in the stamping room.

Back yard 2 Messy Room Messy Room 2Clean up time!  So, after spending most of the morning cleaning and re-organizing the stamping room…woohoo…I have a clean and organized room again!  I have a place where I can actually do some stampin'!  Now that I have a clean spot to stamp, I got some play time in today.  This is one of the things that I made today. 

Clean room Bathroom

Our guest bathroom is blue and green, and I have wanted to make something to put in there, so this is what I made today. 

Stamp sets:  Baroque Motifs, A Beautiful Thing

Card stock:  Always Artichoke, Brocade Blue

Ink: Always Artichoke, Brocade Blue

Accessories:  Cherished Memories Rub Ons

So I have now added my own little stamping touch to our guest bathroom.

I am glad to be back in my stamping room.  I know this post was a little on the long side, and I hope it did not put you to sleep.

Thank you for visiting.

    Hi Jill,
    Wow, you described the flood but the pictures are unbelievable! I’m glad the interior of your home was spared from the flood…well all except for the new faucet?
    Your room looks fantastic and I’m glad you could get some stampin’ time in and I love the little placard you made for the bathroom…gives me ideas too!
    Now, what I’d like to see on your blog is color combos with samples!
    Diva Hugs,
    Judi
