22 Years of Wedded Bliss …

DH-Anniversary-cardOK – not always.  But we do have our moments … Like – now.   While granting me some alone/studio time, DH is making dinner, while the twins babysit the den (pups).  Awww … And, I’ve got to show off the sweet card he gave me.22-yr-anniversary  Yeah – that would be his ‘southpaw’ chicken- scratch declaring his love … (Is it any wonder I have no problem deciphering “doctor-handwriting”???) Smile Happy Anniversary Babe!

 News from the Den:  All are doing well.  The pups are growing by-the-minute!  Sienna’s boys will have their eyes open within the next day or so.  Zonie’s babies are all gaining and growing consistently.  With a litter of 12, we split them so that only half have access to mom/food at one time.  It means poor Zonie has to deal with ‘double-duty’ – and she’s doing great with it!  And both Moms are turning the corner with fussy eating – YAY!!!  Will post some squishy-faced puppy photos soon.  Meanwhile – I want to try making a few “Neo-Paw” pendants … here’s the image.  Hope to see soon if it will translate into a dichroic pendant:

Have a new blank made, and one cookin’ in the kiln as I type.  I think this one is destined for some spoon rests ….

And lastly … DH had an idea about a glass photo-frame.  Here’s the inspiration for it – a mirror we made (out of wood) some 12-13 years ago, when we were doing craft shows.  Since it’s DH – and he only works when inspiration strikes, time allows and the stars are in alignment … it’ll be a while before he gets around to a finished piece ready for the kiln.  Winking smile   Oh – gotta go … time for dinner!

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
