Pumpkin Guts

Can you tell he tasted the pumpkin?
Stay tuned for some Halloween pictures.

Happy, Sad

See how happy Clayton looks here. Well, check out the one where he's laying down. I didn't know why he was crying so much. Notice his legs in one leg of his pants. Mommy needs to do a better job of dressing him.

"My Ears Are To Big For My Head ,My Head Is Too Big for My Body, I Am Not A Siamese cat...I AM A CHIHUAHUA!!!!"
Clayton is reading some books from his cousins Caelen and Skyler. Hi, you guys! Can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks.
I do believe his expression is a little Sarah-like in the second picture. :)


Here are some of the other pendants I made. My plan is to make some in the style of some of my newer earrings; the tack fused layered ones. I also plan to make some in Christmas colors and some to sell as a set of earrings and pendant. It's not easy to see how pretty they are with my photography, but the colors of the dichroic glass change at different angles. It's neat. Look here for some more information on dichroic glass:

Waterton Canyon

On Sunday, we went hiking (or walking) at Waterton Canyon. It was interesting, but a little boring. It was down a nice flat dirt road following a stream. We didn't see any of the big horned sheep that supposedly live there. Bummer. I'm sure it's quite pretty in the spring. It was a popular trail with lots of runners, bicyclists, fishermen. And there were outhouses along the way. Matt and I were sore after walking 4 or 5 hours.

Kiln works

I thought people might want to see the state of the glass before I fire it and see what the kiln looks like.

Holiday Bazaar items

I've been creating a lot of fused glass jewelry for 2 Holiday Bazaar's I was accepted at. The first one, the Pine Creek Bazaar is coming up on Nov. 8th and the other one is Nov. 22nd and that's on base. Here are the bulk of the earrings. I still have to photograph the pendants, so look again later for those.

Cezanne and Clayton

Cezanne, our cat, went to the dentist and it was confirmed that he had horrible teeth. He had to have 6 extracted and the whole deal cost over $1300. Holy crap! I never thought I would spend that much money on a cat. I love him though, and he deserves to be pain free. I'll add a new pic of him soon, but you can see his back side on my last post. He's doing well. I pumped him with pain killers and he's acting pretty normal.

Clayton can't resist going under the desk to pull at all of the cords. He throws a fit when I take him out from under there. Clay is getting down from standing really well now. He likes to help load the dish washer and instead of scrubbing a dirty pot he used a new sponge for a teething toy.

Still Standing

Clayton has been pulling himself up on things and standing. He's kind of dangerous because about the only way he knows to stop standing is to fall. That's not ideal, especially on hardwood floors. But, he's as cute as ever. Notice the funny face with the crinkled nose. That's his newest face.
