It’s not just glass …

So, I’ve spent the last two days taking photos and sitting at the computer, uploading and entering data … not really my idea of fun.  The good news – my etsy shop more than doubled in inventory … the bad news – I think my arse is permanently fused to this seat.

Just kidding – I have been prepping blanks for the next big slumping; working on more badge reels and pendants; playing at the ring saw – cutting pretty small pieces;  rough cutting my next night light; and got all of my magnets fired, cleaned and stored …

And! (I know! – right?!), I attended a seven hour seminar (in the MORNING) on becoming a Domestic Abuse Response Team (DART) nurse … to go along with my Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) role … I asked if they would consider changing the ‘T’ in DART to an ‘N’ (for nurse), so that I could officially be called that “DARN SANE nurse” … we’ll see … 🙂

Plus, while waiting for photos to upload, I was playing with a manipulation program, and ‘created’ this … Sophia, composed of pictures of all of her pups from her last litter … how cool!

About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at
