Ahh … peace and quiet.  The fam is all out of the house for a few hours, my chores are done – for the moment … how wonderful!  We had a beautiful day, weather-wise … teaser Michigan weather, which means an ice storm should be on it’s way soon.  But still, a beautiful day today!  And, I’ve had studio time … Working on badge reels and blanks.

Yoda Kei’s litter mates are starting to move on to their new homes.  It’s sad, and I will miss them, but at the same time, often they would play pretty rough with him.  He seems content to be in his bed or on my lap with the occasional burst of play time.  He has a pathetic bark, wimpy and higher pitched.  It makes me giggle when I hear it.  DH thinks it’s sad too, “Hey lady, call off your mad dog!” he says … Smile He’s a whopping 1.75 pounds now, so he should make 3.5 pounds as an adult.

The Neo pups are doing great, gaining daily!  Moving from soaked kibble to dry and playing.  They’re curious and inquisitive, a fun stage to see.  And after 10 minutes or so of romping they crash for a much needed nap.

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
