Gearing up for Fall in NOLA!! Yay!!!

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

I am gearing up for Fall/Winter 2008 with new designs.  I plan to have my 2008 NOLA Christmas ornaments for sale this coming weekend at the Arts Market of New Orleans. Each year my ornaments tend to sell out, so buy early!!  We will be out at Palmer Park all day from 10-4pm, so please come and say HELLO!  We will have the ornaments for sale online for the first week of October. 

Lastly, please remember the people of Lafitte and Terrebone, Louisiana.  They were flooded by the recent hurricanes worse than we could have ever imagined.  Terrebone took a double hit, as it was flooded by Gustave only the week before Ike.  New Orleanians know their pain better than anyone else.  Please take a moment to make a donation to Helping Hands.  They are going to Lafitte and helping to gut homes.  The first step to getting Lafitte back to normal again.

We are safe and sound in NOLA. Ike is going elsewhere.

Thanks to everyone who has sent up prayers for the state of Louisiana and the city of New Orleans.  We simply could not have handled another hurricane after Gustave.  And, certainly not a Cat 3.  Gustave did some major damage to our levee walls in 29 areas and they are being repaired now.  This repair work is not connected to the Katrina work still underway and not to be completed until 2011.  So, there is still a lot of work to be done here in New Orleans. 

Tens of thousands in our region still are without power.  It is very hot here right now.  They are reliant upon MRE’s and ice from FEMA.  Power is being restored as fast possible. Many poles are out in the marshes and are highly difficult to restore.  So, please continue to pray for the people of Louisiana. 

On a lighter note, GEAUX SAINTS!!!!  WHO DAT SAY DEY GONNA BEAT DEM SAINTS??? WHO DAT? WHO DAT?

Lastly, my thoughts and prayers are with anyone in the path of Ike. 

Much New Orleans Love,
