Well, I’m having an interesting year/summer. The latest… I’ve been chosen to be on a jury. Just when I thought I was about to get caught up and maybe get a head start on fall/Christmas. Maybe if I don’t sleep for the next six weeks and work on jewelry all night when I get home…?
I still have lots of turquoise paint and several more jewelry boxes that need painting. So expect to see a few more of these. I think this one’s been my favorite so far. But I haven’t been disappointed with any of them that I’ve painted.
I’ll do my best to keep up with the blog. I need to keep advertising my Etsy shop and Room With a Past. Gotta make up for some of the income I’ll be losing from my day job.
So please sign up to receive my posts in emails and feel free to share my blog, Facebook page, Pinterest, Instagram, and Etsy listings. Thanks for your support!
I finally painted something a color other than turquoise. I picked Cece Caldwell’s Mesa Sunset. And of course, I was so excited to start painting that I didn’t take a before photo. This is already one of my favorites.
I used the clear wax to seal it. I like it but I think I either need more practice or to take a class. I still haven’t gotten the hang of the aging wax.
This is going to Room With a Past for the April 18-21 sale. (But I’ll be in Texas!)
Room With a Past opens tonight! Just thought I’d share some photos of my shelf with you. Tomorrow you’ll see some of the other spaces in the shop. If you live in the East Bay, CA, area come see us!
