Thanksgiving …

I have a lot to be thankful for … Thanksgiving went off without a hitch, no one got sick, I got through the day with minimal thoughts of – and NO ACTUAL – maiming of family members(!), and with all of these left-overs – I won’t be cooking for several days!  Winking smile

But seriously – while it was a busy week, and next week will be too (darn it!), it was good.  Lots accomplished, good quality family time, and some stolen studio moments … AND, my never-ending subpoena is finally OVER (!!!) … until the next legal blood draw walks through my ER door.  [Cue ‘western show-down’ movie music …]

(Neo) News from the Den: Tess and pups are doing great – finally got around to getting some pictures.  While Tess is starting the transition back to ‘normal’ food, we’ll start to introduce the pups to gruel next week … always good times, with the pups BATHING in formula, rice cereal and canned food.  While it may be good for the skin – it sure is awfully sticky on their coats and my floor! Smile

Played a bit in the studio tonight … have some new and requested cabs ready for the next stage;  And my Grinch is all painted/fused.  The red got wonky (??? I don’t know what happened!) … DH says it looks neat, ‘kinda shaded’ … I don’t like it.  So I’m thinking of playing with some flexi-glass to get some actual red (powder frit) for his hat.  We’ll see.  But, then what – trim around it for an ornament, stick it in a picture frame … ??? IDK, we’ll see.

And as Michigan has given up it’s 60 degree temperatures to plummet back to fall/winter weather … it must be time for DH to start thinking paradise/travel thoughts … [fingers crossed!]


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
