With the tremendous storms and flooding in the southeast, some of my best pals are in Alabama and Mississippi volunteering with the American Red Cross. It is truly a privilege to be able to serve those affected by disaster and I expect to be deployed to Tennessee myself in the next few days.
Please consider making an easy $10 donation to assist the relief efforts. Just text "REDCROSS" to 90999 to make a $10 donation to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. (See more donation information here.)
There have sadly been 28 deaths with the flooding in the southeast; thousands of people are in shelters and the flood waters have not yet receded. News broadcasts are showing spectacular photos of rescues, flooded highrise buildings and the impact on Nashville's music industry, including the Opryland Hotel and the Concert Hall.
Photographer Michael Deppisch has captured a rather different — and moving — perspective on the Nashville floods of 2010.
I know your hearts are with mine as we keep all those affected by these storms in our thoughts.
The second video I'd like to show you today is in celebration of National Scrapbooking Month. Carrie Cudney from Stampin' Up!'s home office has the cutest projects to share with you.
Just click on the photo above to see the video. Let me know what you think of the ideas!
