Our Dear Friend, Marie Segal

It’s with a very heavy heart that we write this note to Marie’s family and friends. Ellen and I and all the Creative Journey Studios family are devastated by her passing. Through the years, whether it was at a retreat or Cabin Fever, we spent many an hour enjoying the creative side of Marie. We…

Julie Picarello = Mokume Gane

Julie Picarello is synonymous with mokume gane and we are bringing her to Creative Journey Studios to share her style of imprint mokume to add to your repertoire. She is giving a three day workshop from July 8th to the 10th for $390. She will share her Tribal Stick pendant first and then expand into surface variations….

The CJS Store Supply List (as of April 2022)

We have updated the supply list. (Prices are subject to change as our marketplace suppliers adjust their prices, but we make every attempt to be reasonable!) It’s not comprehensive, but it will give you an idea of the pricing on some of our inventory. If you don’t see something, ask! We have the ability to…

“Back in the Saddle Again”

Gene Autry (Wow, is that dating me!) is urging me to get with it and work on our blog. There has been a dearth of posts (for which I apologize–laziness is my only excuse!) There is finally a little news and reason to want to chat with you. Having had our boosters all around, we…

The Dam Retreat with Lindly

We just had a wonderful almost a week up in Kentucky with the Kentucky/Tennessee Guild at the Rough River Dam State Park ‘Resort’. Every year around Halloween, Dr Ron Lehocky (with help from Amy Nemon and Leslie Blackford) hosts a group of around fifty polymer enthusiasts. Feeling relatively safe with everyone being vaccinated and masked,…

A New Treasure

The Retrospective Collections has received an exciting new addition! We got a surprise box from our dear friend Marie Segal. If you are new to polymer clay, you should spend some time learning about Marie and all the things she has brought to our community. She got into polymer back in 1978 and is credited…

Hey! Remember us?!

It has been a crazy year, sitting in the safety of home and running the business remotely. We are trying (now that we have been vaccinated) to re-open the business, albeit with reduced hours and mask restrictions. We are busy getting our inventory levels back up and ordering new products we hope you’ll love. We…

The Never Finished Supply List

People are always asking where to find our online store……hmm! Good question! We are constantly finding new supplies to carry and responding to wish lists. It is hard to keep up, and selling without interaction isn’t our style. We will post a list (and try to keep it updated) and be happy to talk to…

All Dressed Up with No Place to Go

In the midst of all this Covid-craziness and while we have been closed, we got a new sign from Crabapple Market….so you could find us, if we were there! Ellen and I have been staying at home for the last eight weeks. Randy has been taking care of the store, watering the orchids and cleaning,…
