Happy Memorial Day …

I could do a lot of (justified) whining and griping about this weekend … but why bother?  It doesn’t change anything …

So – instead … I will wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day(!) … be thankful for so many things … and focus on the week ahead (away from the ER, patients, families, visitors, coworkers, doctors, policies, mandatory competencies, etc.) …

I came home from a long, fairly painful weekend to some major studio heartache … glass-fusing-heartacheI fired up the kiln with my Super-Sized Planetprojects-5-30 Earth blank … only to have it crack into several pieces … OUCH!!  Everything else in the slump came out well … and I realize my problem with the piece now … but – DARN IT!  Back to the drawing board …

I have figured out the limitations of what I CAN (and can’t) do with my 50+ pounds  of glass marbles … It makes me happy – playing with these little pieces that I turn into ‘bowls’ …  I have several dichroic cabs ready for fire-polishing.  I may get more badge reels listed as early as this week …

The pups are doing well – gaining and growing … My mom’s are going through the phases of whelping recovery in a predictable manner … Michigan is expecting sunshine and warmth – for a few days anyway …

Life is good …

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 www.chneos.etsy.com
