About Dru

There are so many things I could say but I will just start with the basics. Mother to 4. Grandmother to 11 (Yes, 11. All under the age of 9.) I am a former Army wife and we spent 15 years traveling around the world. It was such a thrill to have seen so many places and meeting lifetime friends. I spent many years working in the craft industry and love getting together with friends and creating. I have a lifelong love of thrift shops, antiques, and yard sales.

Christmas Auction Game

Today’s 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop theme is games. I love playing games, but after playing the white elephant game for years at Christmas parties I decided it was time to change things up and make the game a bit more exciting. So, I’m introducing “Christmas Let’s Make a Deal” Auction. A special thanks to Oriental Trading Company for sponsoring this post. Keep scrolling down to see instructions.
