Gathering as we grow …

WWU:  Someone decided it would be a good idea to have me as acting charge nurse this past weekend … WTH?!?  Such a silly notion!  But we got through, and outside of a huge THANK YOU to my co-workers, I have nothing more to report.  [My therapist thinks just a few more sessions required to get over the trauma of it all …]

News from the den:  Momma Zones is eating well again, so Mom’s (my) kitchen is slowing down … thank goodness.  The Neo pups are starting to open their eyes – so I’ll share some squishy-faced photos soon.  The Yorkie pups (little heathens) are completely at home everywhere in the house and will actually attempt to climb into Zonie’s whelping box – the crazy little furballs!   But – they also love to climb all over Katerina – their own personal jungle gym.  Everybody loves Aunt Kat!


All of this good news means I’m still not spending much quality time in the studio, but I have gathered a few ideas/techniques/supplies to try once things ease up a bit more …

Meanwhile, my knitting is coming along … the candle flame scarf has grown – now measuring some 3+ feet long.

And, I’m slowly coming to terms with the fact that tax season is upon us, the deadline is fast-approaching and I have to get busy!  So I’m gathering up all those blasted receipts – while I think of ways to better-spend my time (or at least more fun!) …

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
