Today is a new day!

I'm trying to keep a good attitude about yesterday so I'm starting today's post with a bright, happy looking card. This is the first card I made yesterday before the big pipe event. I love Penny Black stamps, they are always so fun and cute and happy! The second card I was working on won't be done for at least a week.

I thought I would also post a few pictures of the current state of my stamp room. Tom and I pulled all of the flooring out in hopes of saving it, there was a lot of water under it so it is a good thing we decided to do that right away. I didn't sleep much at all last night worried that the cap they used on the pipe would somehow fly off and fill our basement with water...luckily that wasn't the case. I still feel so fortunate that it happened while I was standing right there...it could have been worse....MUCH MUCH WORSE.

My stamping supplies are now all piled in the kids playroom. I have a feeling there will be no fun had in that room for a week or so.

Here is the pile of flooring we pulled out. Thankfully it came apart really easily and we labeled everything so that if we're lucky we can get it put back in correctly.

This is the nice hole we had to cut in the wall to get to the pipe.

Here is the wide shot of the room, fans blowing and heater going. I just have to remember....IT COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE!
