2015 … So far, so good!

This week and – to date, 2015 has been busy and productive …

spoon-rests-1-15My kilns have been working overtime:  Future spoon rests (so far we’re up to 16 of them … in various stages); Night lights (umm … 12 and counting, including this turquoise and red beauty); New pendants almost ready for bails … And a partridge in a pear tree.  No wait, that was last week … Winking smile

And, I was up at way “TOO-EARLY O’clock” on Friday morning to get pups off to their new homes (WA, VA and ID).  All did well and my little ones are being properly loved and spoiled in the required one-on-one scenario!


sad-birthdayPlus, we stopped in to take Grandpa T out to lunch.  So, while this coming week would be my grandma’s 90 birthday … Grandpa is going to be OK.  [BTW – Happy Birthday Gram!  I miss you!]

I am playing with chain mail again!  I like these for key-chain/dream-catcher tchotchkes … And, I have discovered a new (current favorite) red wine: Black Cherry Pinot Noir by Wine Experts/Island Mist.  (It’s a sweet wine, more like wine-cooler-wanna-be … but I love these wine making kits!)  Lucky me, I made a whole ‘batch’ (28 bottles) … YUM

Now to prepare for another (ER nursing) weekend night tour – in the New Year … Sure, it COULD be different.  Or, it might be more FLU!  I LOVE being coughed on and touched by virus-grubby hands … Doesn’t everybody?  So, here’s the closest thing to my New Year resolution (!) and my first 2015 Public Service Announcement: photo credit linkSmile [And, just to point out … Lucky YOU!  You can’t actually HEAR me SINGING this song …]


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
