Night lights and penDots …

Sums up my studio week.  Throw in some pool time, pooch time, a couple of meals and a whole lot of sleep … yep, that’s what I did!  (Alright, I also picked about 4 pounds of beans from the garden, along with zucchini and cucumbers.  Those beans have me totally rethinking the raised-bed-garden idea!)

Finished off a few of my latest night lights … So pretty when they’re plugged in (back lit)!

I’m also getting pretty reliable sizing results with my penDot cabs. 12-30 mm – I’ve got the glass ‘math’ down! (Disclaimer:  for my kiln/process.)  Time to get some items into the shops!

But first … another ER nursing weekend tour.  Not talking about intoxicated patients at all … we had enough of that silliness last time!  Time to get some (more) sleep!

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
