About & Contact Info
Hello, my friend! My name is Elizabeth Rogers Drouillard. I love to dabble in many creative pursuits and am passionate about social justice issues, particularly fighting human trafficking. I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA. It’s awesome because we now have ArtPrize and have always loved being a half hour from Lake Michigan. I’m married to Joe and we have 3 little boys who are our constant delight.
Things Bright chronicles my craft exploits in crochet, fabric, and art journaling, my love of all things colorful, and my current art and design inspirations. Lately I’ve been exploring Tunisian Crochet a lot!
On Tuesdays I often highlight global anti-trafficking issues and write about the connections between truly valuing handmade and fighting human trafficking.
On Fridays I put up Into the Woods to remind us to get off our screens and enjoy the great outdoors.
I also write pretty regularly about learning to transform myself from a scatterbrained crafter/artsy person with 50 started-but-unfinished projects into a focused business creative. It’s a bumpy ride and I’m learning a ton!
Like all my bios say, I love God, love people, and love making things. I would be remiss not to point out on my about page that it’s my belief in a Creator who loves us all, no matter what, more than we can imagine, that drives my creative and social justice pursuits. I prefer to work to show people that rather than write a lot about it, but would totally love chatting about life, love, God, and the universe one on one if you are so inclined.
Come tell me about your life and pursuits! What do you make? What do you do? Chat here:
Things Bright on Twitter It’s the fastest way to reach me, as I check in for some crafty chai-break chat regularly Monday-Friday. I tend to drop off on the weekends to concentrate more on family time.
