Quick post

Still in the middle of a gigantic mess trying to get things ready for the market, so this post'll be a quick one...

Yesterday I worked on these boxes:


They're not finished yet, the front ones will get a quote on top, and I need to do the inside and bottom as well, and varnish them. They're a bit different from what I usually do, but I really had fun working on them, and figuring out which patterns to use.

I also started preparing some rocks:


And painted the wooden pieces that I'll be putting quotes on:


I just got back from doing the groceries for this weekend, and on Fridays I never cook (it's leftover day today ... ☺), so that means from now on I can just keep going. Yeah!

I also received word from Jessica that my painting arrived safe and sound in the USA. So happy and relieved. First time ever I posted a (bigger) painting and all went well. Good to know ...

And for those of you who don't know yet: there's another sale in my Society6-shop, until midnight April 13. Free shipping and 5$ off (almost) every item in my shop! If you want to take advantage of this, you'll have to go to my shop through this link.

Okay, can't wait to get back to my worktable, so that's it for now ;-)

Linking this to Paint Party Friday. Thanks for being here and leaving your lovely comments. Hope you'll enjoy today, and the coming weekend! ♥ ♥ ♥
