Let me introduce … Beth

Beth Harrington is a friend of mind, who is going through a tough time…Let me explain.


She was diagnosed with cervical cancer in July 2009, after a procedure, they thought it was gone. In September 2009, after more procedures and tests, they found the cancer to be more aggressive than they thought, and its back. Beth underwent a partial hysterectomy on October 8, 2009 (removal of her cervix & uterus, but her ovaries remain), so as not to worry the cancer would come back.


Well, with the medical procedures comes lots of medical bills, so to help her out some of her friends have come up with a raffle to help offset these bills.  So to help get the word out I thought I would post something here to direct you to her raffle site, if you would be interested in any of the goodies and helping out this kind lady :D

2009 Green River Storm Precaution

Well, looks like we have another river to watch this storm season.  Seems to be that the Howard Hanson Dam abutment is having some problems to where they will have to let more of the waters flow out the dam therefore making the Green River flow to possible flooding stages, especially if there is huge amounts of rain this year.  And hey this is Seattle/Tacoma, it rains minimum of 9 months out of the year!!!  Usually the Day before the Memorial Day weekend in September clear to the day after the 4th of July BBQ.  Well, the Army Corps of Engineers have been doing Storm Precautions by putting miles of huge sand bags down the river’s course to protect the homes and businesses along it’s path.  You can check out the whole story here


Of course, Marc and I had to go photograph the work in progress, and then I of course had to do a LO about it…LOL!!!  I used this months awesome Guild Kit “This One’s for the Birds” by the Guild Designers.  It also coincided with one of the Notebook Challenges “Color Overlay Challenge” at the Guild.  Check out all the Challenges at the Guild this month here.

Toot…Toot for me!!!

Today I got noticed in the DST Weekend Gallery Standouts OCT 31- NOV 1, just how cool is that.  I did the LO for two reasons, one is, it is another page of my Collective Soul Lyrics Coffee Table Book, the other is the inspiration came from two sources, one the Oct Artisan Notebook using Mosaics, and the other is Chrissy W over at Elemental Scraps template.  She came out with the template awhile ago, so when Collective Soul’s new self titled album came out with a song called “You”, I knew I was gonna use this template to do the LO, just had no Ideal how I was gonna do it, until the Oct Artisan Notebook came out with the Mosaic theme…it was just perfect!!!   So here is the LO and don’t forget to scroll down to check out the wonderful designs I used :D  LO is linked to my Guild Gallery and title is linked to my DST Gallery :D
