First, I made a second card for the YNS sketch challenge #12. I wanted to practice my hair coloring so I experimented with a strawberry blonde.
I also decided to add some shine to Ellie's heart on her hair band. Glossy accents work great for this.
So I thought I'd give you a quick update on what's new in the empty nest.
This week we sold the piano. The downsizing begins. We plan to put the house on the market in January so it seemed appropriate to sell the piano now before we do anything else.
I also packed two care packages. One for Eric and one for Sarah. Eric got home-made peanut butter cookies and a few things he left behind. Sarah's includes power adapters that she can't get in Ukraine.
We skyped with Eric yesterday and he's doing great. He loves school, but is a little intimidated by Calculus. He has lots of options for extra help and I think he'll do okay if he puts the work in and gets the help that's available. He can also choose to drop this class and take the Calc 106 (he is in Calc 108) by next week if he really thinks it's beyond him.
Sarah is in love and happily telling the world about it. If you want check out her blog post.
Well, so much for brief. I'll try to work on that for next time. Thanks for visiting my blog today. Have a great day.
