School will be starting up again very soon and so I have made some cards for that occasion - some for the children heading back to school and some for the Teacher they will be meeting soon. I remember those days - all in new school clothes, with a new box of crayons, some drawing paper, a ruler, notebooks - I'm sure it all so much more sophisticated today - buy my memories are fond as I'm sure the memories of children today are also.
These are available in my Etsy shop
Happy Summer, Happy Day, and Happy Back to School!

Some of you may remember that for many years I worked with a shop owner in South Lake Tahoe – Lake Tahoe Holidays. She has recently sold her business and is in the process of moving and I also have moved so we don’t see one another often. My point is she used to make (and maybe still does) the most beautiful and grand mirrors surrounded by a LOT of ornaments and other Christmas items. I have always wanted to try my hand and although this is my first one adding more than one ornament – I hope I will get better. I do like the way it turned out though – I applied the technique to a plaque for my Etsy shop rather than a mirror
A couple of more items new to my shop
Have a wonderful week. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you, Dru

Finally, I made it down here. I’ve been here going on now the 2nd week. Interestingly enough only the stuff I need to put away got here – but none of the stuff to put it in – how does that even happen??? I just got my vacuum cleaner this past Sunday (day before yesterday) boy has it got a work out. My tables for my studio space will not fit through the doors to the studio as they were built for the other house – so all my stuff is all over. And of course this room is configured totally different than my other room – but even though it may be a bit smaller – there seems to be more useable space. My horizontal filing cabinet and rolling paper cart apparently were annihilated somehow??? And keep in mind we moved from a 1915 sq. foot house with a unfinished above ground basement underneath the entire house for storage, a good size potting shed on a good size deck and a huge yard to something way smaller. And, my house is pink – of all colors. I am definitely not a pink person when it comes to housing. Can you tell I’m a bit overwhelmed?
I know it will be o.k. – I actually love our new to us little manufactured home. Beautiful laminate floors in a light whitewashed ash and newly painted white walls. And I am getting rid of so much junk – it seems to multiply though – the more I get rid of the more appears I don’t even know where my camera is right now so I can’t take any photos to show you. Take my word for it – it’s very much in disarray right now! My studio is especially like a big puzzle that I don’t seem to be very good at. Anyway, enough griping – as I said I do love it – there’s so much light, and EVERYTHING grows here (well almost), and I don’t have to make an all day trip of it to go to Michael’s or JoAnns – both are right down the street, and I don’t have approximately 9 – 10 months of cold winter!! We are just now getting the stirrings of the beginning of Autumn.
Here’s a couple of items for Autumn and Thanksgiving and Christmas that I haven’t posted yet – and I really hope I get this room together soon so I can make more – do your fingers just itch sometimes to get your hand on all the goodies you bought and set aside in anticipation of creating? That’s where I’m at right now. Take care friends
I hope you enjoy!

One of my wonderful customers on Etsy had purchased some items from me for Halloween and has used them in honestly a way I would never have thought of and I just had to share her creativity with you. I know more people are visiting me than are letting me know (due to the visit counter) and so I hope any of you that pass this way will enjoy these photos. I love them…
Just look at this beautiful table setting – she has different items on each plate – that’s one of my little wall plaques on the plate in front
And a closer look…
Here’s the other one
Doesn’t that look like a fun dinner party? Thank you Sally for letting me use these lovely photos.
A couple of more items from my shop
Have a wonderfully fun and safe Halloween. Hope to be back in my shop soon. Dru
