Retreat Update!

Hello stampy friends!

As some of you know, I'm working happily yet feverishly on projects for retreat classes coning up soon in Wimberley, TX.   Sadly, Wimberley has been inundated with heavy rains and incredibly damaging storms this week.   Even worse, 50 people are listed as "missing or unaccounted for" today, May 25.  I know our prayers are needed.  {5/26/2015 *editing to add  that now the search is for 12 people.} 

As a result of severe damages to the area, many area residents are now in shelters for undetermined lengths of time, etc. While at our retreat, we will be assembling kits of toiletries to give to these residents. If you have a heart to do so, please bring along whatever toiletries, travel-size items, or other items you care to give/share with you. We'll make sure they get to the centers taking care of those who need help.  

Some area bridges are ruined, but as far as I know that actually affects drivers coming in from southern Texas areas, rather than those of us driving down from northern Texas areas.  Please be sure to check local details before driving down to the retreat in 2 weeks. 

 *Care to join us?  A few slots are still available for retreat sleepover visits and/or for daytime-only class days on Saturday & Sunday.  Friday is reserved for our SU demonstrator group ... ... but if you do happen to have $99 worth of Stampin' Up! goodies on your little secret Wish List .... you can actually get $125 worth of SU products PLUS free stamps from me whenever you join as a happy stamper.   Oh ... and even more stuff to come ...  from me as well as from Stampin' Up!   Seriously.  I'm always nearby via email: .  I'm glad to call as well.   

Happy 'n blessed new week to each of you!
