What a beautiful Worm Moon last night, now all we need is a bit more warmth to melt the snow and water the roots to feed the buds…hello Spring!

New Cards

Let’s see, there is a new birthday, a new red-winged blackbird from Great Meadows, a new blank orange tiger cat, a new Lady bug, a new thank you and a new Easter.

On the drawing board

I’m working on a spring botanical, a new graduation card, a new mother’s day, a new father’s day, more birthday, coastal birds, flowers, get well, Emerson and Alcott are all in my plans.  It will be a busy spring!!


I’m still teaching at the COA in Wes Concord, April 11th we are crafting a bunny from paperclay.  If you are a Concord Senior and interested in taking the class, please contact Tina Close at the Concord COA  978 318 3020. Here is a photo of our project.    Our butterfly class in March was a great success!!


I will be performing with my friends, John Ferullo, Jon Swenson and Kathleen Larkin on April 27th, at 8:00pm at the Java Room in Chelmsford.  (not May 5th as I wrote before, my mistake).  It’s always a fun night, lot of laughs and original music and the Java Room serves great snacks, coffee, tea and alcohol, best of all the show is free!  Hope to see you there!

My Catalogue

I have not updated my catalogue on this site because I need to find a better way to do it.  I will probably photograph all my cards as it will be easier to keep up.  If you have any questions about cards and don’t see them on the racks in the my stores, please feel free to email me at mandrioli@aol.com, I will be happy to help.

Thank You

I guess that’s it for now.  I hope this newsletter finds you well and happy!  Get ready to be blown away by mother nature’s gift of Spring!  Enjoy!!  As always many thanks for your support over the years, I’m humbled to sell any cards at all!!
