When it rains, it pours...

Hello, friends. If you're looking for my VIP Hop post, it's not here. There's a good reason. Read on.

Today we went with Kyle to his college orientation, and we returned to a flooded basement. A TON of rain fell while we were away. Long story short, most of the carpet was soaked, including the office (where my stamp area is). We had to get everything off the floor so we could pull up the carpet. My stamps (and my VIP project) are on the counter in the office, under all the junk. Because I chose to procrastinate, I hadn't photographed or blogged the project before we left for the orientation. I planned to do it when we returned this afternoon. That didn't happen.

SO, I'll be out of commission for several days at the least. I'll be back as soon as I can! In the meantime, please head to Kim's Blog for the beginning of the VIP Blog Hop -- you don't want to miss it, I promise!

Two lessons learned:
1) Don't procrastinate.
2) Don't accumulate too much stuff in the stamp room. It just makes clean-up after a flood much more difficult.

Stay dry, everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

Oh no! So sorry to read this, Hot Pocket. :( What a PITA. That's just not fair: having to let one of your babies leave the nest, and then coming home to find said nest so soggy! Boo. Hugs, gf.

Sorry to hear that. At least you didn't leave the project on the floor. Another good reason I need to get my 2nd floor craft room organized :)
