thankyouThis week marks the one year anniversary of my Etsy shop … how time flies.  11,000 hits in this past year!  Wow!  I want to thank everyone for their interest in my little hobby!

It makes for a fitting time to try to roll out my latest hobby (dye sublimation) as a shop.  I’ve collected lots of ‘animal-lover’ focused sublimatables … dog tags, collars, bowls, treat (cookie) jars – as well as mugs, coasters, key chains and ornaments.  It’s a long story – but let’s just say ‘flying pigs’ hold a special meaning for me … so I’m thinking of opening a shop called “Flying Pig Designs” … what’cha think?  I doubt I’ll get it up and running this month, but it’s brewing in the back of my mind – display projects, banners, shop design, etc.

Took the kids (and Maggie) to the drive-in last night … Transformers 3 and Super 8 – how could we not go … Good movies, and we had a good time.  My ‘night-owl’ (youngest daughter) was the first one to fall asleep – although, the 2nd movie let out at 230am …

Meanwhile – not much going on in the studio.  Enjoying summer – BBQ’ing, swimming and getting burnt …


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
