Happy 4th of July … weekend wrap up

flagI received a major sublimatable shipment on Friday … even my daughter was saying I’d outgrown the studio … But, in the meantime, I did a little dye-sub before going to work this weekend … I now have a new flag welcoming [me] …

And, we put my pretty flowers (MINUS mulch) to good use during our puppy ‘photo shoot’ … isn’t she sweet?  Smile

But then it was time to go to work – on a holiday weekend … one associated with lots of alcohol.  When will people learn that drinking and driving are a bad combination (not to mention illegal)???  I should have a new batch of subpoena’s rolling around in a few weeks …

We had all sorts of alcohol related injuries too – punching walls, burns, lacerations, falls … scattered in with sick folks: cauda equina syndrome, cancer, hypoxia, dementia and a few visitors from the jail … all while working short staffed half the time.  Holiday weekends – gotta love ‘em!

But it’s over for the week.  I’ve made some progress with drilling holes in letters for the mobiles – that new bit is doing the trick.  I’m still having an issue with the new slumping bottles, but we’re getting there.  I will focus on that this week, and forget all about drunks!!!

Happy Fourth of July everyone!  bboop4th

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
