As we parade off into an entire New Year (and let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to say goodbye to 2020) we’re starting things off right with an entirely new Club platform! It’s been a while since the Whimsical Sculpting Tutorial Club got an overhaul and got some spunk and pizazz added to it.

This month Club Members are in for a chilly surprise as we take a ride through the Arctic Blast! This month we’re continuing our whimsical sculpting journey and we’re making a Puffin, Husky Dog, & a cute Arctic Girl in her snow gear. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come along and join us for the ride too.

Jayne has been around the polymer clay world for quite some time. Her work is fun, has a touch of whimsy, is intricate in her detailed expressions of animals and critters inside her canes … and let’s be honest, it’s just plain gorgeous. I’m blessed to own several pairs of Jayne’s earrings and a brooch and wear each with pride. Jayne is a lovely person inside and out and it’s my joy to have her here with us today.

2021 Polymer Clay Challenge

Posted on 4 Comments

2020 was quite a year for many people. When the year kicked off, never did anyone think we would be thrust into a global Pandemic, let alone that it would rage on for the entirety of the year. For many, completing a challenge, or working toward a goal on a hobby was the last thing on their mind. This year, I hope that art would encourage, inspire, uplift, and bring peace and joy into your life. I’ve always said that your art (whether polymer clay or something else) should make you happy. If it doesn’t … then why are you doing it?

Parker Turns 10!

Happy 10th Birthday Parker

A very long time ago a little yellow creation came into existence, his name was Parker. He existed long before his “clay form” came into being as a little friendly imaginary friend of mine. Shortly after his creation, I went through the process of obtaining a real US copyright license for him; so Parker© is even copyright official. Today Parker turns 10 years old and we’re going to celebrate his birthday all month long with some new designs, releases, special sales, discounts, and more. But before we do, let’s take a quick look back.

Variegated Sunflowers by Katie Oskin

There’s something special about seeing Sunflowers start to bloom. Here in NE Ohio, when they start to show their gorgeous colors it can only mean one thing … fall is on its way!

I love sunflowers, for their bold and vibrant fall hues and for the way they look up at the sky both innocently and sweetly. I love them for their variety of size and color. I love them for the way they herald in a misty fall morning, say goodnight on a crisp cool evening, or welcome me into a fall harvest festival.
