The good news is, I've been accepted to the Metals Program at the Oregon College of Art and Craft and the money is all lined up. The bad news is, we haven't sold the house and the drive is just too long. We broke ground December of 2007 and moved in the summer of 2008. Our gorgeous home lost half of its value almost immediately. So, it's been hard to wrap our heads around pricing and value and letting go. We had cash and now we have less cash.
We're not alone.
I think we've finally reached acceptance and have the price where it should be to sell, but of course it's the middle of winter and no one is buying.
Come Spring I expect a bidding war, and then onto art school Fall of 2014.
Someone took apart an old mantle clock and now I have ornate feet and tiny pillars. I'm crazy about them!
To start with, I'm working out what tiny world will come to life under that glass cover and how best to attach metal flourishes.
Where the pillars belong isn't clear yet, but I'll figure it out next year.
I wish you a happy and safe holiday season!
