2017-A year in review
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.
What a year it’s been! Love the photos.
