Studio is closed, due to fire.

Some things still amaze me.

I wanted to share another "find" in the ashes of our studio. There were a few things I went for specifically to find first. I knew I wanted to check the drawer that the ATCs were kept in (as some club members had already handed theirs in before the fire). The entire cube thing was black, but I finally asked Mary Pat (Mary's daughter), to check it. As she pulled the drawer out, I could see white. I was amazed at her find. These are the 2 drawers from that small (and cheap) cabinet by front window of studio. So I do have some COPICs to start over with and the ATCs were there as well. Unbelievable!!
 If it hadn't been frozen I am sure we could have gotten to a few other things, but they waited too long to let us in, and we couldn't move much of the burnt lumber pieces. But, I am thankful for small blessings too!

Mary is at CHA in CA and enjoying her classes. I am living vicariously through her cell phone photos. Can't wait to see it all when she returns.

Spellbinders survived the fire...

I was so happy that some things did survive the fire at our studio. Spellbinders were one item I was able to salvage. The books that held them are toast, but the dies look great (except for color). A little soap and water perhaps. The most frustrating part is knowing we could have gotten at more things, if we were allowed in sooner-before the snow and cold weather. Things were frozen and too difficult to lift to look under.
Thank you to all our friends, family and customers who have been praying for us and have had so many nice thoughts. We miss you all!
