Lovin’ It!


DH and I are making baby steps towards bringing the new studio computer on-line, so that we can lay to rest the seriously ill, old computer.  Umm, the new one has Windows 8.1.  I feel like a geriatric patient …“I don’t DO computers … or VCR’s … or digital watches.”  We WILL figure this SH*T out, dang it!  (Apparently NOT what I’m loving!)

In the meantime … I’m playing with the torch, running the kilns and assembling necklaces.  Have I mentioned I LOVE MY TORCH!?!  It’s true!

I’m also plugging away, (with the OLD, terminally ill computer –) working with digital decals.  Still doing my three color experiments.  Here is what recently came out of the kiln.  Next up – I will try actual photos, to see which color profile I prefer …

Two kilns running every day, in between gaining our “I.T.-degree-by-fire”.  Add to all that ‘some’ kind of fun outing every day, and this wanna-be-Hermit is LOVING IT!!!  Seriously! Winking smile

BTW – Spit an 8 month old, non-existent, DISSOLVABLE stitch.  My parts are getting happy again.  Still not loving God-like surgeons who do not LISTEN to their patients, but … I no longer feel like a jacked-up weather barometer.  So, ya know – it’s all good!  Smile

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 www.chneos.etsy.com
