September 8, 2011
for our brand new Rubber Stamp Release! 
Mark your calendars so that you can join us!
On a personal note, my thoughts and prayers are going out to everybody who has been effected by Hurricane Irene.
I know that half of my town is still without power and they may not get it back until Saturday!  My oldest married daugher is one of those still without power.  She has moved back home with us.  We are all so grateful that it's been pleasant weather.  People have been able to keep warm and comfortable and cook on their grills.
Our largest grocery store is only selling dry goods.  They didn't have a generator back up for the refridgerated and frozen goods.
More than half of the local restaurants are closed as well as doctors offices and businesses.
Everybody is helping each other though.  People with power are inviting their friends and neighbors over for hot meals and showers.
I hope that everybody is well as I keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
Hugs, Sheryl
