Heat wave … and other news

Got a reprieve from the electric company … maybe they felt bad for me?  With the kilns kicking, I’ve got to be a good customer, right?  Anyway – power’s back on as of Tuesday night!  YAY!!  I spent some time realizing I would not have done well in pioneer days …

Up at 5am this morning to send pups off to their new homes … Always worries me – and I track their progress as they fly.  We now have new extended family in Texas, Louisiana and North Carolina – and the pups did great!

Due to internet shopping withdrawals, I placed an order for some sublimatables … I had to – it’s not my fault!  Smile  Decorated/personalized dog collars, aluminum water bottles, night lights, and glow-in-the-dark tiles coming soon …

Had to run my marble mobile toppers 3 times to finally get them to the right tack fuse, but I now have 9 more ready to form into actual toppers … and the kiln is keeping the studio nice and ‘toasty’ with round-86 of my bottle experiment.

Got through my DARN-SANE call for the week – now nothing to do but stay cool during our heat wave … and mentally prepare for the weekend … maybe a beer would help?!?

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
