WIP Wednesday July 2017 in Review at KatersAcres

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.

Work-In-Progress at KatersAcres:
