[Whine!] … It’s that time of year!

cloud-cabs-cut-3-29Glass Expo is this week.  Nope, I still can’t go.  Dangit!  So – I’m staying busy …

It’s been several weeks in the making, but I wanted to make some ‘cloud tiles’ … So, I did.  And, tonight I cut those beauties up into future pendants:

Here are the tiles going in, mapped out for cutting, and cut:

Why it took me so long … or what to do when you can’t go to Expo (year 4):  I started gathering [stock-piling] STUFF:  Murrini and every grade of frit (and, um … I spared you the photo of stringers … we’ve started playing with making our own) …

It’s not all jewelry here though … I made a special request bird night light, too.  I like her!  And, I’m gathering supplies for another project or two …

Meanwhile, it is also TAX SEASON [Bum Bum Buhhhm!]!  So, DH says I have to stop playing and start ‘adulting’ … Grrr!

Through it all, Chloe is my napping watch-dog!  Winking 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
