Growing Up Parker

Parker - Handmade Polymer Clay Figurine by KatersAcres

When you begin a new craft or hobby your work is often in it’s “rough” stages. You begin simplistically. Simple shapes, patterns, and techniques. Parker is one such example. Parker was not the first thing I made with polymer clay, but he was the first character I created with a full story line, home to live in, back store, friends, and plenty of adventures to be had along the way. But there’s a funny thing that happens when you work in one area long enough. You find that eventually you end up “growing up Parker.”

Happy Birthday Parker!

Parker Turns 3 Today!

Happy Birthday Parker Banner

ParkerToday is the day, Parker is 3 today! Wow! I can’t believe that this little guy came alive from colored pencil drawings to the cute little raindrop shaped guy that he is. The past 3 years have been an awesome and wild adventure. Parker is growing and growing quickly. My “studio” began four years ago in a table in the living room, to consuming the living room, to my husband building me a brand new studio home for Parker (and did I mention that we could have guests over into our living room again?)!

The Biggest StoryBook Scene I’ve Ever Made!

Parker's GingerBread House StoryBook Scene by KatersAcres

There’s something that I’ve never done in my life…and that is make a GingerBread House.  I love the way they look and the smile that they bring to everyone’s face when they are seen around the house.  So this year, as the Grand Finale to the Twelve Days of Christmas, I made my very first GingerBread House!  After 12 grueling hours in the studio, Parker’s first GingerBread House came to life.

Parker’s Story

Parker’s story begins in a place not of this world…

Parker lived in the midst of the great clouds of Nimbus, a tiny town tucked high above the clouds beyond the deep blue sky.  It was on the Nimbus Rainbow where Parker and his friends played each day. They would slide along the colored beams that arched over the town, dancing in the light each morning and playing in its rays.

The Nimbus rainbow held all their secrets of magical places, knew all the adventures of make-believe that Parker dreamed and kept the town and it’s children full of life.  Yes, Nimbus was a great place to call home. It’s a place Parker longs to return.

What Makes Parker Special?

Posted on

What makes Parker so special?  There are lots of things that make him special.  But today we want to discuss why Parker is so cherished, beloved, and a great piece of art.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at one of our StoryBook Scenes and decided, “I just don’t think I can let someone adopt this one.” Ultimately, if I did that with every item I make, you’d never see anything new in our store, my house would be overflowing with adorable clay figurines, and I’m pretty sure my husband would think I was a crazy lady.
