On a roll – and then …

Glass-painted-ornamentsI was on a roll, feeling good(!) – UNTIL … But first, the good:

I got through the weekend(!), while taking care of some difficult, NEEDY patients  and families … (‘nuf said!)  I was able to get to sleep early Monday morning, allowing for some quality evening time – family (two-legged), romp (four-legged), and the STUDIO:

I have my painted glass in the kiln, setting as I type …

I put together the next large batch of badge reels; And even a few pendants … (hope to get some photos taken this week)

But then – I tried to get tricky and put a pinch bail on my leaf pendant … Yeah, it didn’t go so well (DOH!!!):

That’s when I decided it was time to step back, watch some Sherlock (BBC series – LOVE IT!), and HAVE A BEER!


This week is ‘Get-the-Twins-Ready-to-go-BACK-to-School-Week’!  I don’t know if they are ready, but I AM!  ‘Course it means Mom’s Taxi has a busy week ahead …

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
