What’s Going On at Parker’s Clay Tribe

January “Stars” Swap

SWAPS - January

This monthly post will highlight some of the things that have been going on in our Tribal community. Perhaps the biggest thing (since the last post) is that our first ever Tribal Swap was well received and so much fun that even MORE people signed up for the February Swap. I like having big open ended swaps. This allows people to be free to create with their creative expression and to allow the creativity to flow where they are already comfortable.

Swap partners for February have already been assigned. eMails were sent to members who are participating yesterday. Please remember that your swap MUST be mailed by February 29th.

Mask Challenge

Parker's Clay Tribe CHALLENGE - Design Your Own Polymer Clay Mask | Designs due to FaceBook Group Feb. 29th, 2016There are only 12 days left to enter the Mask Challenge. If you are a Tribe member and have not yet made a mask and entered it, what are you waiting for. You truly have nothing to lose and I guarantee you’ll learn something along the way.

Tribe Member’s Studios

One of the fun aspects of belonging to a group of like-minded people is that you get to share what matters to you. In our group we have a fun album where you can share your studio photos. Be sure to come see where our Tribettes are working by going through this album. Amy Scanlon uses this cute as a button area to do her work at. Isn’t it just so sweet?!

One of my favorite aspects of the group is seeing what others are working on. This adorable little dragon & kitty were a WIP several weeks ago from Virginia Bridges Michelini. Virginia took a retreat class with me last spring and learned how to make this little fellow and I think she did a phenomenal job! That hour glass was awaiting another special project by Teresa Pandora Salgado, another Tribe Member and teacher. You can make a dragon similar to Virginia’s using this tutorial.

There are several very talented caners in the Tribe. This week, Eden Moore shared with us some of the canes she’s been working on. Check out these gorgeous flowers she assembled using her canes.

If you are a Tribe Member be sure to post your work in progress (WIP) photos for a chance to be featured here as well. You can post your WIP photos any day of the week, it doesn’t have to be just on Wednesdays.
