And then this happened …

So, last weekend we had the misfortune of being in the path of a tornado.  It was a crazy 60 seconds that left a trail of destruction.

It was a close call for my craft supplies – they were on the other side of this window…

We’re still cleaning up broken glass (I’m thinking of a new technique involving glass shards…) and sorting through the mess.

Despite the chaos I have many things to be thankful for.  No one was hurt.  Things are broken – but things can be fixed.  My craft wall survived the impact.

But, apart from the safety of my family, the thing I am most grateful for is the help I received to clean up.

So, after the dust had settled, it was time to make some thank you cards.  Here’s what I came up with for some very special people whose kindness & generosity was amazing.

Thank you!  I really, truly don’t know what I would have done without your help.  Kelly & the windswept little misses x

Like a proud parent I can’t choose which version I like best.  I do know that I {LOVE} the tulips and have everything crossed that this makes the carryover list once the Occasions catalogue finishes on 2nd June.  Kelly x
