But HE Started It!

OH!!!  It is SOO DH’s fault … He sent a de-funk Craig’s List item that promised a new storage rack/work station in my COE-90 designated work area.  HE emailed the no-good listing to me.  Now I WANT one!  Shelves for my frits, upright storage for my glass, a place to tuck much-needed tools, AND a higher counter/table … YES, please!

Meanwhile, while NEGOTIATING, my plotter and I have been prepping all sorts of cool images.  (Here’s one:)  And, I’m taking advantage of running water, so I continue to ‘Spring-clean’ in the studio.

And, I exposed the kids to brussel sprouts.  I don’t love them, but … “a Mom has got to do what a Mom’s gotta do” – so I tucked them in with all the other veggies and “Lemon-pepper” Swai … the kids liked it – more than I did!  So, you know … I WIN!!!

We also experienced our first seizure here … My 9 year old Yorkie, Chauncey decided to spice things up a bit this week.  So ten-scary-minutes and 2 days later, I’ve added to my private-duty patient list.  I’m happy to report all are doing well, and I’m back to sleeping with one eye open.

While keeping vigil, I managed to get a few photos taken/listings going:

So, I will get through my weekend ER-nursing tour, then dive into glass projects next week!  (… while we juggle the needs of hormonal teenagers and our four-legged crew, running and feeding the homestead, and steady chipping away at my CARPENTER for the New Work Station!!!) 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
