“Date Night”

cedar pointThe twins have reached another milestone … at least in our school district.  Today marks the 8th grade field trip – to Cedar Point.  This is a pretty old tradition (DH and I both went when we were in 8th grade … umm, CENTURIES ago!)  But it always makes me nervous, the thought of my babies crossing state lines, being THAT far away from me.  DH’s take:  ‘Cool, that means it’s date night’ … Sure, if I can let go of worrying for a minute. 

But for now, I’ve got Adele blasting in the studio and I’m producing.  (BTW – Adele seems to be a DH-deterrent … good knowledge to store away for future reference if/when needed.)  I made pendant pieces last night – kinda cute.

I scrubbed and re-primed the coffin kiln shelves.  Now I’ve got her loaded up for the de-bubble run.

And my woven bowl is ready for the next slump run.  I think it may turn out neat … But that’ll be next week.

Sure hope the kids are staying safe …

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
