We are sitting here in shock and sadness watching the news of the bridge collapse in Minneapolis. As some of you know my DH, Greg, is from MN and went to college at the University of Minnesota right across this bridge. He, our family and friends have driven over this bridge many, many times so this hits pretty close home for us. Fortunately, as far as we know, no one we know was involved in this horrific accident. For this we are grateful and our hearts are filled with prayers for those touched my this tragedy.

In brighter news, I have mostly recovered from the Garlic Festival and have been back on my computer (which incidentally is magically fixed when I noticed a BULGING battery! Ack!! I replaced the battery with my extra and its working great! Apple is sending me a replacement for the bad one) working away. I just finished a new business card for Angelina over at Angelina's Cards.

and I am doing a bunch of work for Cerri of Little Pink Studio (check out her shop!!) Cerri is a dream to work for and I just finished and installed her new blog banner and I am doing some other things to coordinate but I can't share that stuff yet. I have a couple of other jobs lined up as well one of which is working with Ms Holly of HollyDoodle Designs. I love her style and am really looking forward to working with her as well.

  15. My G is from St. Paul and his family is back there. I called my SIL the next morning(in Mpls) because we heard about it too late the night before. As soon as she answered she said "we're all ok" and I burst in to tears from relief. I live in Mpls. for 3 years back on the 70's and know the area well. It broke our hearts and also made us recall the collapse of the freeway up here after the '89 quake. (since then I've had a fear of being on bridges or winding over passes) So far no one we know was on the bridge. So scary and so, so very sad.

  16. It sure was a very scary and sad thing. yikes. This is another reminder to take not one day for granted. My prayers go out to those who lost someone, or have a "missing" person still.
