Every year usually has it’s fill of highs & lows with 2017 being no different except this one had some events that won’t be soon forgotten. Over shadowing everything was the entrance into this world of our first grandchild-Ellie Rose. Needless to say, she has been quite the blessing & a joy to be around. Living only 3 blocks away we are able to play G Pa & G Ma on a regular basis.
Not long after she was born I was scheduled to have a “routine” but not without risk procedure that was supposed to be an overnight hospital stay & back to my shop a couple of days later. It turned out not as we had planned & I ended up in progressive care for 6 days & not able to work for almost 2 months. Just as I was getting back on my feet we had Hurricane Irma decide to pay us a visit which caused quite the mess with water getting in & collapsing the ceiling above where I do my photography & the wind blowing down my sign. My back yard looked like a small lake but that soon subsided & my insurance has given me a new roof & sign.
Prior to my 2 month hiatus I had built up a good inventory of finished tables but I still had a number of orders that I needed to complete or start, but fortunately my customers were very understanding & patient with me. Those are now caught up, I’ve completely recovered & I’m looking forward to see what 2018 holds for Driftwood Decor.
Below are images of my work that some of my customers were gracious enough to send me this past year.
