LeeAnn, I'm so sorry to read about your home and studio. Keep your chin up- your positive attitude will help you through it! I wish you the best and am so glad you've got a wonderful friend to stay with, and especially that you can still stamp. That is good therapy! (((HUGS)))


I was going through some notes I had made about a technique from you some time ago and decided to check your blog again. Oh my goodness!!! I had no idea of the damage out there! We are safe and sound back here in Michigan. I cannot imagine the trauma of losing everything like that and not even know what the next step is. This teaches us to really pray for people when these horrible things happen. It isn't just a news article, but real people who are suffering.

Thanks for the update as I have been wondering what the status was for you. I can't imagine going through what you are. Here in MI we get tornados and I remember one when I was a child in the 50's that was devastaing for our area. We were spared, but the damage was all around us. My prayers are with you.

I can't imagine what you are all going throught right now and had been wondering about the status in your area after having seen your blog post with the skeleton on the roof with the "we won't go!" sign during the floods. As awful as the situation is, your upbeat take on it is inspiring to say the least! And speaking of inspiring, I really enjoyed your demo booth at convention....walked around to all of them and took many photos but was happy to be reminded of some of the little tricks you used for your booth. Thanks for the inspiration...both stamping and otherwise. God bless all of you as you forge ahead.

I just happened onto your blog and this post about the flooding. Our Pennsylvania home was flooded by Hurricane Agnes in June 1972. Each time I see photos and read stories like yours many memories, both good and bad, come back -- and our experience was 39 years ago! Stay strong and you will get through everything. Maintaining some semblance of normal helps. You have my sincerest sympathies.

Thanks for the update, LeeAnn. I cannot fathom what you are going through...I believe you are a much stronger person than I could ever be in those circumstances. You and your family continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

Lisa S.

Wow - my thoughts and prayers go out to you, your family and community. I'm glad you have such a good friend to help you. That must mean so much. Good luck to all of you as you move forward.

I know what you are going through. Our house flooded during Hurricane Floyd and we lost so much and our insurance did not cover any of it. We now have flood insurance! Next year I should have the $40,000 loan paid off that kept us in our house. If I were close to you I would come help.


Hi Leeann, thank you for the update. WOWOWOW it is still so hard to even fathom this happening, and then to someone I KNOW! I am praying for you and all the decisions that are ahead. SO THANKFUL for your "angel friend!" Hang in there and God bless you and your family!

Just went thru the stress of Irene. Luckily it was further out to sea than projected by the time it got to Maryland. I can live with losing my home but I don't know if I could live with the not knowing if I could rebuild or need to find something new. You are handling this with grace. I hope I could do the same if it happened to me.

Patti Corriere

LeAnn, my heartfelt prayers for you, your family and neighbors as you go through this. I am inspired by your strength through all of this. What a devastating experience to lose your home this way. Stay strong and have faith.

Did not realize we had anybody from Minot in lns - my daughter lives in Minot in a crappy apt. but water was 8 blocks from her so she was grateful.
I watched all the programming of it for days on the computer and felt so bad for all there as I worked in GF after their flood so knew even after the water left how bad everything would still be a what a long haul it would be.
Prayers and hugs.

LeeAnn, thank you for the update I have been wondering of late how you and your family are going. Your photos remind me of the floods we had here in Brisbane at the beginning of the year, just so much devastation. I can't begin to imagine what you are going through, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Keep strong knowing that we all care deeply about your plight.


This must the greatest challenge a woman would have to face. My heart goes out to you. and prayers also!

Mari Pearson

I will keep all of you in my prayers. Looking at your pictures takes me back to 2008 when we had a devastating flood here in Iowa. It didn't directly affect my hometown but all our surrounding cities. Love from Iowa Mari P.
