>I am VERY appreciative of support from family, friends and friends of friends (whom I personally do not know) who have listed themselves as Club Creative Studio fans on the face book fan page to date. I love that a good thing can spread like a wild fire if the word is passed along to someone who either likes jewelry in general, has an obsession with beads, or maintains the valued concept of merely looking at or owning an art item that is a one-of-a-kind, handmade creation. I have a grin from ear to ear on this subject.
Thank you for your continued efforts to spread the word about our art!
Spreading the word about Club Creative Studio by word of mouth, face book, or from reading this blog is an easy task for you to help me with. In today’s society, most of us are lucky enough to have or know someone who has the capabilities to make a connection almost instantanious with another person or a group of people who might be standing right in front of them. Also, we can quickly touch base with so many who actually live across the globe. That helps me know that I can more readily share the resulting product of my passions, and continue to be creative for my own satisfactions and for others to admire and purchase.
I look forward to sharing a slice of myself as part of the creative process of making Art that Sets You Apart!

>I just wrapped up another two day craft fair weekend. It was a successful indoor event.
Taking part in a local craft fair is entertaining and exhausting at times. It takes time to prepare and set up an appealing and functional display area. That is the main challenge. Your space allotment is limited and you are concerned with lighting and traffic flow as well. But, it can also be a very rewarding experience. For me, it is a great time to introduce new art lovers to my craft. Those that are familiar with what I produce, look specifically for my Club Creative Studio logo to locate me. They are the fantastic returning customers that enjoy coming around to see what is new at the tables.
It is a valuable opportunity to be able to speak and meet with people who are interested in you. I love informing others of the process that goes into making my beads. I especially enjoy seeing a reaction of wonderment and disbelief, as I elaborate on the fact that I actually CREATE the individual beads that are incorporated in a completed necklace, bracelet or pair of earrings. Many are amazed too, of the amount of time put into the production of the final products.
The next time you are in attendance of a craft fair, stop to appreciate the vast amount of talent that is exhibited in one central area. It is empowering to learn how many artistic or crafty people use their time and talents to make this world a more beautiful place for us all! Also, know that they all work hard to present to you and that they are probably exhausted at the end of their day(s) just like you are by the time you walk into each and every vendor booth.
Thank you for supporting the Arts by attending and purchasing from local craft fairs and thank you for taking time to get to know an artist in your community.
>This is a new endeavor for me to set up and then maintain a business blog. I hope that it is useful for us to share the creative process with you as we create our art.
I am in constant observance of my surroundings for possible color combinations to mix from my clays for our beads. Inspiration is abound, and I make visual and mental notes every day on that topic.
I welcome your help by giving suggestions for color trends that you notice, like or just find interesting. Share your opinions on what catches your eye or a color scheme you are drawn to over and over again. Even informing me of your personal favorite color helps me decide what type of bead I will create!
