I have been painting...

For two days straight.
We're in the new house, well...we're working on the new house.
It needs a lot of paint and a lot of deep cleaning and a good amount of love, but it's coming along and it's really beginning to feel like home.
We're very self sufficient around here which means all the painting is being done by us, along with new light fixtures and even some tile laying. It saves so much on labor costs, plus a ton of pride in what we've accomplished.
I haven't worked on jewelry in three days, but last night I sat down and finished the edging for a new (very large) embroidered pendant. I'm going to try to finish it if I get a snippet of time tonight and maybe post it tomorrow. In the meantime, here's sneak peek!

I hope you're enjoying Spring!!
The weather here is beautiful and we've got all windows wide open while we paint. 


  1. New house. Woot! Congratulations on the next chapter. And what a pretty color combination and a beautiful macro shot! Can't wait for the reveal! Enjoy the day.

  2. Congrats on the new house. What gorgeous colors in the pendant!

  3. Painting your new house sounds like fun, Marcie. Congrats again on your upcoming BIG DAY! And that pendant looks fabulous - I really like your choice of bead colours. Can't wait to see it in full! Happy painting/beading, my dear!
