Winter Wonderland and New Arrivals …

Makes for a full week!  On Tuesday, DH and I helped our Vet bring nine new pups into the light.  Always so amazing … Now with 3 days under our belt, Blondie and babes are settling into a nice routine of ‘life on the outside’ … and pups are growing BY THE MINUTE!


winter-stormFortunately for us, this was all before Michigan was blasted with some 8-10 inches of snow.  Pretty, but based on the number of car accidents reported … no fun to drive in. 

So, I didn’t make it to my favorite glass supplier this week, which kind of stinks.  With the environmental mess going on in Oregon, fused glass pricing is sky rocketing and availability dwindling … Ouch!  

On a positive note – I will leave with a quick-pic family portrait.  That would be Zeus and Isabella, proud parents of Xena.  Not such a flattering photo of mom, but it’s hard to look glamorous when you have a kid climbing around on your head!  Winking smile


And, since there is no rest for the wicked – I will leave the nursery and studio for  a weekend of ER fun in … T-18 hours… Oh Vay, I mean YAAYY!!!

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
