Catching the Christmas spirit …

or is that SPIRITS???  (We’ll get to that…)  I’m happy.  I’m gathering up small projects/music to keep myself occupied while I work the art shop tomorrow.  Come join me from 12n-8p … I’ll have Pentatonix rockin’ on my MP3 player for some a cappella Christmas cheer (thanks L.T!!)

Back to spirits … I’ve been putting all those recycled wine bottles to good use!  I will have hors d’oeuvres trays, man-cave nick-nacks, spoon rests, change-collectors, bowls, tchotchkes – whatever the heck you want to call them – at the shop tomorrow AND at the Warm N Cozy Bazaar on Saturday … so come visit!  And – for all who have been saving their bottles for me – THANK YOU!  Please keep ‘em coming!  (I can only drink so much!)  Winking smile

Meanwhile – my three kilns will keep running with bottles slumping and various platters, bowls, spoon rest projects.  Time to get back to it …



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
