What Water Does. . .

. . . to paper, chipboard, and stamps.



Here are a few pictures of some of the damage from the flood.


I was finally able to throw that stack of paper and magazines in the trash on Friday . . .after only four days, it was already growing mold. YUCK!

The stamps shown are some of the worst . . .but now that time has passed, I've found that cushion is shrinking and peeling off the wood, and rubber is peeling off the cushion! Amazing what water can do, huh?

I haven't had a chance to go through the baskets of ribbon yet . . .I'm kind of afraid to . . .I'm sure it's going to be really icky!

Are you going to have a flood sale? That might be a way to salvage something from the ruins. Good luck on your clean up efforts.

I am so sorry for you! That really stinks. Start hanging your ribbon over clothing hangers to get them dry ~ at least you might be able to salvage them.
