WIP Wednesday is here again! It’s time for the month end review at KatersAcres. WIP Wednesday posts are becoming further apart these days for many reasons. One is because I’m sharing more behind the scenes and in process stories over on Instagram, as well as an occasional Insta-stories. These also may contain many of these behind-the-scenes photos, tests, life events, and what’s going on in my studio. But for those of you who don’t have Instagram or a way to follow me on that platform, here’s just a smattering of what’s going on here and a few things I’m really enjoying in the polymer clay community as well.
What’s going on at KatersAcres? Well, WIP Wednesday is here again! It’s been over a month since I wrote a WIP Wednesday. This happens for various reasons because I always have things to share with you, I’m just sharing them as they happen instead of in this weekly, bi-weekly (or in this case monthly) post. If you join me on Instagram you will see behind the scenes photos as well as my Insta-stories, which contain many of these behind-the-scenes photos, tests, and what’s going on in my studio.
WIP Wednesday is here again! One of my favorite blog posts to write for you is WIP Wednesday and it’s hard for me to believe that it’s been two weeks since the last one. Last week I showcased some really awesome talent too, so if you missed it, you’ll want to be sure you check it out. Today you’ll get to see some more studio spotlights, a special Amazon deal, and even a special studio addition! Every WIP Wednesday post is jammed pack full of fun, it’s always a post you’ll want to see and read.
WIP Wednesday is here again! One of my favorite blog posts to write for you is WIP Wednesday. Why? Because I get to share everything I’ve stubbled on during the week. Today I’ve included more links to tutorials, teachers, blogs, & spotlights than ever! Be sure to catch all the special offers and savings this week too!
WIP Wednesday’s sometimes make me tired. Let me explain. Have you ever looked around at all the pictures you’ve taken throughout the past two weeks and simply been blown away? It’s no secret that I don’t do polymer clay full time, but that I also serve as a minister alongside my hubby. So when I flip back through the last several weeks of pictures and try to pull a few to interest you, my darling readers, sometimes I get tired. These past two weeks have been a flurry of activity, especially with last week being Holy Week. For this WIP Wednesday here’s a smattering of what’s gone on in my polymer clay studio including some helpful tips and tricks you might enjoy.
At the beginning of the year I asked all of you, my darling readers, if you still enjoyed the WIP Wednesday posts. I asked because sometime posts like this are hard to read because there’s no real “theme” to the post itself, because it’s really a collection of random “stuff” gathered over the past 1-2 weeks of what’s been going on here in my studio. I’ve tried to add in polymer clay community news, highlights of other polymer artists, as well as some more information to aide in your polymer joy. So never forget to look at the bottom of the page too!
Do you ever feel you’re surrounded with WIP? Still wondering what WIP is? WIP is “Work in progress” or “Work in progression” or “Work in procrastination” or “work in process” … to be honest it depends on the week as to what the “P” in WIP actually means. Regardless, the past several weeks have been very busy and filled with a ton of creating & busy work here at KatersAcres. And today my WIP Wednesday post is on Thursday because, well, the Eeyore mask will tell you (keep reading). In the meantime, here’s a look at some other WIP that are going on in here in my studio, as well as some notes, tidbits, and some other artist’s work you may have missed. Keep reading…
This WIP Wednesday is jam-packed with stuff you won’t want to miss. This past week has been a very busy one for me here at KatersAcres, not including the busy week behind that one! On Monday we launched our huge Studio Overhaul & Clearance sale [check out the announcement here & better yet, shop here], we spent all night Monday packing orders, Tuesday I sorted through more studio supplies to get ready to add another batch of goodies to my store for you. Here’s a look at some other things that are going on in this incredibly busy week as well as some notes, tidbits, and some other artist’s work you may have missed. Keep reading…
This January overview will hit the high points of our WIP Wednesday for the month. Why just the highlights? Because as a working full-time polymer studio, there’s always a lot of things that go on here in NW Pennsylvania that I can’t always share. The reason is because sometimes they are for upcoming tutorials, super secret collaborations or future projects. In other words, I can’t always share everything I’m working on, but I can share some things with you. Today’s WIP Wednesday features a few things you may
A Behind the Scenes Look Into My Polymer Clay Studio
This January overview will hit the high points of our WIP Wednesday for the month. Why just the highlights? Because as a working full-time polymer studio, there’s always a lot of things that go on here in NW Pennsylvania that I can’t always share. The reason is because sometimes they are for upcoming tutorials, super secret collaborations or future projects. In other words, I can’t always share everything I’m working on, but I can share some things with you. Today’s WIP Wednesday features a few things you may have seen already if you follow me on Instagram as well as a whole bunch of new stuff you may not have seen before.
Supplies, Supplies, & More Supplies
2017 has arrived. Let the polymer clay fun begin! To help kick off this WIP Wednesday, since we’re only a few days into the new year, I’m going to show you a few things I’m working on; as well as some great supplies you might like in your studio for the new year. I will also let you know where you can find these supplies. (PS: Most of my supplies I get from Amazon as my nearest retail art/craft store is about an hour and a half from my house. — Yes, I live in podunk).
Fresh Perspectives: A Change in Medium
I love mixed media. Especially mixed media that centers around paper, paint, and collaged elements; like this Winter Art Girl. There’s just something about collage that I have always been drawn to and always enjoyed. Today’s WIP Wednesday is about taking a break from your “main art form” to express yourself and your heart through another art medium. Come on over and join me to see my Winter Wonderland Snow Girl. I made this as a dashboard for my Traveler’s Notebook. As a bonus today I’ll teach you to make your own.
WIP Wednesday Inside KatersAcres Polymer Clay Studio
I can’t believe it, “November Wrap Up” – where did the year go?! Is it just me or did time just melt away. It has been a LONG time since I did a WIP Wednesday post (since July actually). I’m not 100% sure that you like these posts. I used to do these posts every week or every other week.
Please COMMENT BELOW if you’d like to see more of these posts or if you find them interesting and would like me to continue them. THANK YOU!
