Momma got her Flock together …

Yep!  We got all four of our kids together (along with my sister, brother-in-law and niece, my dad and stepmom,  my grandpa and my mother-in-law) for a family dinner.  I’m a happy girl!  The twins turn 20 in just a few days, our oldest will be 25 in a few weeks, followed by our oldest son turning 23 in just a few short months.  Add to it, our youngest son will be leaving for boot camp all-to-soon … Definitely time for a family celebration and hugs from my babies!  No group-shot family photo to share – but here are the birthday babes:twins20


And then I played in my studio.  I am revisiting penDots, so I made this batch of cabochons – thus HAD TO order a few new hot glass color combinations …  DH and I had a vitrigraph pull this week, as we continue to play with color building and layering, stacks and pull results.  This pull wasn’t what I had expected, but it was learning.  So, ya know – a good experience.


Somewhere along the line, Miss Cowbell has discovered duckweed (from our pond).  Why she loves it?  I have no idea … But here she is sporting her green goatee!  Silly Chloe!!!


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
