This Elf is Ready for a Break

I’ve been working hard this week … shipping packages daily, cranking out personalized ornament orders (both of which I love), getting the computers talking to each other (networked – so I can access pictures/info in the new studio), loading drivers and photo-editing programs, cooking … WHEW! And – I still have some Christmas shopping to do …

But – I will take some time (a couple of evenings) to meet with friends this week for some much needed R&R … Oh, and take the kids to a movie. OK – next week I’ll wrap up the Christmas dash …

Both storage rooms are done … Just a few final finishes to go in the studio, but it’s all functional now! I LOVE IT!! I have both kilns running, the stereo playing and a glass of wine in hand … Earlier, DH was tinkering with stained glass. He’s combining a slumped bottle with a glass window … I think it’ll be pretty sweet once done, but here’s a quick pic:


All of the Neo pups have moved on to their new homes … But Lil Miss is starting to interact and play … She’s a cute little fluff, eh? And, Zeus and Tess came through their surgeries (cherry-eye removal) perfectly and their eyes look beautiful (again)!!

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
