Still kickin’ …

sandblasting-funWhile not quite healthy, I’m not dead either … so, I’m playing in the studio, as I mentally prepare for another fun-filled ER nurse weekend tour.  Sandblasting, earrings and kumi – oh my!

We had a request for an etched wine bottle, and I had an idea (peace signs and wine names); It’s that time of year, so I was compelled to make some pumpkin earrings; and I’ve gathered the requested colors for two sunshine/warm climate bracelets:

Here’s a quick pic of my current view from the kitchen … Gotta love Michigan trees in the Fall!


And, I’ll leave with a cute picture of GusGus (AKA Guster).  He’s from Cally’s litter and he is a wee one.  Little man weighs in at 1# 3oz at almost 3 months old.  Presently, he is my never-out-of-sight side-kick.  While he THINKS he’s a big man – it just ain’t true.  Cute Lil Bugger!


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
