Ginger & KatieAs many of you know, this past summer I took a week and traveled down to the Ozarks to spend time with my friend, Ginger Davis Allman of The Blue Bottle Tree. Ginger and I have spent the past several years getting to know each other, but really have become more acquainted over the past 6 months by realizing we have far more in common than just polymer clay … like our mutual love of fountain pens!

On Monday each of us will be telling you all about what we did, the work we accomplished, and what we learned. But today, we are each going to take the time to have a sip of coffee with you! That’s right, with you. When we got together we decided the clay world must get to see a little more of the “real us” not just the face behind the typing. So hopefully today’s video interviews will let you see a little bit more about each of us.

Mobile Office Solutions for Small Business

Girl Boss? Try this mobile office solution! I used to take 4 trips from my office to the dining room table, just to tote all my stuff: planner, computer, iPad, iPhone… Inevitably I would sit down to work and realize I didn’t have my favorite fountain pen … so back to my desk I’d go. Okay, I have my pen … two minutes later, I recognized I didn’t have my notebook. So back to my desk I’d go and this would repeat itself several times throughout the morning. Does this sound familiar? Well … thanks to my friend Ginger Davis Allman of The Blue Bottle Tree, she helped me solve my problem with this mobile office solution. Continue reading Mobile Office Solution

Polymer Clay Art Journal Page from Scraps Tutorial by KatersAcres

Find yourself making oodles of clay veneers from my Faux Collage Techniques tutorial or other veneer tutorials? If so then you’ve likely realized something … stamps, paints, and so much more end up in the trash … why, because you had to clean your tools before you reused them or put them away. Enter my friend, “Can’t Bear It.” “Can’t Bear It” is the name of my art journal that I “clean” my products on. From my scrapers, brushes, stamps and more …
