The beat goes on …

After sleeping for some 13 hours, I woke to our first summer day!  (I am absolutely NOT complaining about the temperature!!!)  So – we spent some time getting the garden in order (rototilling, weeding, general clean-up).  I do believe I will sleep well tonight, but I had a blast playing in the dirt!

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
