Another Deadline Met …

And now, we can close the books on Christmas 2012.  It was touch and go there for a bit, as DH and I were struggling to get to the bottom of the punch list, while enlisting the aid of our ALL-TOO-EAGER teenage offspring.  But we made it, had a fun family evening and my Martha Stewart image is maintained for a bit longer.  And, everyone loved their homemade gifts – my step-mom cried over her Lucy present.  Awww …


So, with a clean house I can move on to other projects (like my messy studio) and take a quick breather before the next deadline … ‘PARADISE’ – which will be quickly followed by ‘Close of Tax Season 2012’, me-with-Xmas-loot,-Mimi-and-Maggie‘Catch up on Work Competencies, part 86’ and whatever else life throws my way.  But it’s good – right now we’ve earned a break (yeah, OK, I’m writing this before I head off to 24 hours of weekend ER nursing fun – so technically DH has earned a break) … Yep, it’s all good. 

Time to get ready for work …

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
