Only in Michigan …

Can you go from 80 degrees to 40 degrees inside of 24 hours in May … Not complaining, just still in awe … while my teeth chatter.

Got through Mother’s Day 2014.  It wasn’t awful, although there was plenty of drama in the E.R. … But, no emergency enemas – so it qualifies as a WIN in my book.  I had a moment of weakness, and agreed to pick up additional hours on Monday, which has me wide awake at 5am on Wednesday (today) …

I have continued to work through my (mental) stress in the studio – cutting, designing, bleeding and producing.  I have photos.  I’ve also been doing some therapeutic shopping, my style (via the ‘net).  My Grandma is not doing well.  My Grandpa is hurting.  I hate this!  Which means I will continue to work (and probably shop) like the ‘Hounds of Hell’ are circling … [And that thought has me mentally designing my next piece …]  Anyway – pictures:  Two Hearts pendant; my (tribute to the movie) ‘Frozen’ cast box; a gorgeous Michigan May sunset (from 5/10/14); and my latest enamel paint tiles (waiting to be fired) …

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
