Flooded out

My house currently has 3-4 feet of water in it and my studio has more; we live in hard hit Ascension Parish.  My family and I have lost almost everything and only the structure of my house is covered by flood.  Below is my house.

I really dislike having to beg for money, but if you would like to help, I have a GoFundMe account set up.

Thank you all.  If nothing else, please send prayers and good thoughts my way.  Myself and my family are devastated.



  1. Hi, Marilyn. So sorry to hear about your losses. I made a small donation to your fund. We are in the midst of downsizing from a 2000 sq ft house to a one bedroom with garage in an active senior complex. As I go through my stuff (which may take a few months) I'd like to make up a small package or two for you to help restock your supplies. Can you email me at with your address? I probably have it somewhere, but if you would - I would love to help you with a few stamps, papers, etc. Could you use a Cuttlebug? I have one that I'm not using since I have a larger version cutter? I hope you are back in action soon. I will keep you in prayers.

  2. This is truly awful. I hope your arty friends can help you replenish your supplies! <3
