Limbo …

As an ER nurse, I don’t do ‘in limbo’ very well … but here I am … waiting for my part to come from the kiln company.  I called last week – customer service was great!  Very customer-friendly, and she assured me she’d get the part out to me right away.  (If you ever find yourself comparing kiln manufactures – I would recommend JenKen …)  So, now I’m anxiously checking the mailbox everyday … during the busiest mail season of the year, patiently waiting for my new relay switch.

With this extra time on my hands, I was playing around with Facebook, and am trying to create a studio page … if you’d like to see lots of pictures of glass bowls, ornaments, what-not … I did manage to upload those:  just search Clayton Hill Studio on Facebook.  Smile

I’m also wrapping up my gift to my uncle in Connecticut … every year we send a cheese/snack/candy basket, as my thought is everyone needs more empty calories around the holidays … so in keeping with tradition, I’m sending one of my bowls filled with Harry & David goodies.  Now to get it safely packaged and shipped … Disappointed smile

I do have a couple of finished projects, from last weeks coffin slump, and I’ve been playing with beaded wire (on cheese spreaders – yep, trying to stay busy …) :

And I have one lonely blank … my youngest daughter recently ‘hung out’ with me in the studio, and this is her first glass project, waiting for it’s turn for a de-bubbling run …  She’s named it ‘Eclipse’ … hmm – think she’s a Twilight fan?

Tomorrow I’ll be away from the studio all day (mandatory day shift in-service – my favorite!) … with Michigan’s recent snowfall, and current temperatures – I’d much rather stay holed-up in the house … playing with the babies – who opened their eyes over the weekend!  Smile

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

    I am coming over to pick up my long ago ordered goods….and a puppy. OK, not a puppy…but I wish I could. And I will NEVER be comparing kiln manufacturers. Though I suppose many of your readers might be; being glass folk! It is easier to look and buy from you. My artist friend. See you soon. Gonna call you asap. I did not realize Christmas was upon us.
