Treasury Tuesday: Batten Down The Hatches!

"Sandy" has been the talk of the town this week.   John of Jackbear Stamps was inspired by the absurdity of the nickname "Frankenstorm" and made a "Frankenstom Survivor" ACEO, which has been in 3 treasuries (one pictured below) as well as mentioned in a BusinessWeek.com article!

Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected by the storm.  I think John said it best in his blog post:
"I am truly grieved by the agony and loss Hurricane Sandy has brought upon our feeble human experience. My thoughts to out to those who have lost loved ones, have lost homes, have had property destroyed, and whose lives have changed because of this meteorological event. I mean no disrespect. 
 That said, I do believe there is room in our grieving process to smile. How often are we cheered in a dark hour by an off-color crack? I originally made these cards to mock the absurdity of the word "Frankenstorm". I mean how do we take this perfect storm seriously with a name like that! However, after going through the wind and rain of the storm (and by no means was it the worst the storm would dish out here in Rochester) I think these cards also have a deeper meaning now. I think they can be sent to a loved one to say, "Hey, I know times were tough, but you have a friend thinking about you." I think part of the healing process is the acknowledgement that you are still alive, and that its OK to smile again."
