Hi! This is Jill from Jilbert’s Bits of Bytes and just like this post’s title says, I’m back. Hard to believe that 2 years have gone by since we sold the house we had been in for 33 years and moved 2 hours away to a brand spanking new home. It was definitely a journey and one I don’t intend to repeat E.V.E.R. We were SO naive going into this. I mean what could possibly go wrong besides selling our house in one weekend, my husband throwing out his back while packing, our new house being delayed by 3 months and my daughters paperwork going missing. And that’s just a small piece of it. But we survived it all and can now laugh about it … sort of.

During this time, Toiny has been keeping in touch asking me “now?” … “are we there yet?” and the last time she asked I said “YES!” While it hasn’t been all work and no play, I was ready. Plus I have a new passion–watercolors–and couldn’t wait to share it with you. So, what’s in my store? Since I had just finished one blank slate (my house), I decided I wanted to do the same with my store … somewhat. I did bring back a handful of my actions, but everything else is new. There isn’t a ton of it, but don’t worry, it won’t take me long. What you are going to see is a lot of stuff that revolves around watercolors. Currently, I have 4 new brush packs and 2 new element packs. I’ve also put my entire store on sale at 40% off thru June 15th.

But wait!!! There’s more!!! I realize there just might be something that was previously in my store that you might want to get your hands on. Between now and June 15th, I will be taking requests. All you need to do is comment on this post, theStudio Facebook page, or even my Facebook page telling me what you want. After June 15th, I will upload your requests to the retired category where you’ll be able to pick them up for 70% off thru July 15th. If you need to refresh your memory, I have several “albums” on my Facebook page under Photos.

Now I leave you with some before and after photos of my new house. HUGS!!!

Getting ready to pour the foundation.

All framed and ready for the roof.

House done and landscaping completed … now I have to just hope I don’t kill all of it.
