Good Times – because I have a sailboat and a fat pad …

anterior-fat-padOn x-ray, that is … Which means I have a fractured arm …Yep, good times!

Full of grace and good manners, we went to a retired-fuser’s home this week to see what she was selling. After the decision was made to purchase her kiln, grinder, and various glass/accessories, I decided to trip and fall, busting one arm and seriously spraining the opposite hand.

Finding the positive: We do have lots of adorable pups to play with. And, I’m told purple/blue/red is my color …

With some help from DH, I was able to make my first-ever ‘Turkey Carcass’ soup – which was a blend of 5-6 different recipes.  It includes some of my favorite soup veggies, along with left-over mashed potatoes, gravy, a bit of yogurt – and we cooked with leeks for the first time … Good Stuff!


Lastly, a special ‘shout out’ to Chelsea from Kansas … as our 600th Etsy sale, we’re sending out a snowman ornament along with her order.  Thank You, Chelsea!

CHS thank you

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
