Evil Strikes Again … (WWU)

cruella devilleWhile I was trying to get through my weekend at work – doing good deeds, like starting IV’s on septic infants (SUCCESS!) – the dark side struck … Yep – the biological mother rose up from the depths of Hades to mess with me and mine again!  While I may be one sarcastic gal – I do live by a moral code/cosmic karma:  What goes around comes around … AND, I believe that certain behavioral medicine (Psych) disorders are completely within an individual’s control, but maybe someday the ‘magic pill’ that makes her civil will appear … ‘Nough said.

Then I went to my DARN SANE meeting, and realized again how pathetic the birth mother is on the ‘21st century Creep-O-Meter’.  It helped me to shift focus and remember how lucky MY family is – while I said a prayer for those families-KIDS-women-people that truly need help.

Studio News:  The main work table is done.  It’s beautiful and exactly what I wanted.  DH has moved forward with the first storage room – flooring is in and the first row of storage shelves in place:

work-table-1               storage-1

Hope to get the kilns and heat press fired up this week (I mean it this time) … but we are having major issues with internet connection in the new space that’s proving to be really time-consuming … ARRGGHH!!!!

Lil-Miss-5-wksFour-legged news:  I think I feel tooth buds popping up in Lil Miss.  Hopefully, within the next week or so, I can introduce some solids … ‘And Then There Was One’ (Neo news):  Marco (our blue male) is all alone – and LOVING it!  All the extra one-on-one time, belly rubs, etc.  Two of our Neo’s (Zeus and Tess) go in for (final) cherry eye removal on Friday [fingers crossed for great outcomes] …

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
