Survival Kit For Life

19 Feb

Club Creative Studio encourages and supports creativity. To help you express creativity for everyday life events, you are welcome to try this activity, the creation of a Survival Kit. Gifts known as “survival kits” house a collection of small commonly known, everyday items.  Each item is individually assigned a special symbolic meaning.  Each item combine to be so important, one has the impression that it just can’t be lived with out.  It is needed for mere survival.  That is a joke of course but, it is a nice gift with thoughtful meanings.

The list of items included in a survival kit bag can be personalized for one person or made in bulk to share with many.  Often times the items are placed in a clear bag so that the contents can be readily seen, and an itemized list is included to explain the contents. Creativity can be expressed in the packaging as items can be placed in decorative bags, boxes. baskets or buckets.

Feature Friday- Serving Up Style

2 Dec

Close-up of Artisan Server Handle

Club Creative Studio’s Feature Friday has become a time where the focus in this blog is directed and dedicated to an item from the Club Creative Studio art collection.  Sometimes the item is a highlighted new addition to the product line and sometimes it is a special feature of something that has been placed online currently or in the past.  Enjoy this shoppertunity.
Welcome a NEW item! Recently created and brought to a few craft fairs to note reviews, I have decided to expand, creating a few more of these fun and functional kitchen accessories.  Each is created as a one-of-a-kind item, incorporating my hand-rolled polymer clay beads, and other various elements into the handle section of the server.
How did this come to be? I am consistently drumming up fun ideas and possibilities to create items that cleverly and creatively and effectively highlight and include my hand-made beads.  I needed to discover a way to share the art in the kitchen. This is it. I love the fun, function and fashion of it.

Artisan Server

The size and count of the beads in each server will vary from each item.  Lending to two separate price points of $20.00 and $25.00 per item, United States funds, excluding tax and shipping/handling.  The price per unit is based dependant of bead design, complexity and finish. They are fun to get and give and I  enjoy creating the beads by hand with labor intensive techniques often including up to thirteen steps per bead in creation from start to finish. With pride, the creativity ends up becoming a useful item for kitchen use.
The Club Creative Artisan Server is serving up style.  Use it to cut and serve a slice of pie, cake or perhaps anything else that would call for a utensil that will serve dessert or another type food item with ease.  This makes a great hostess gift, and will add to the style of your own table setting as well.  The beads can be cared for with gentle wash with soap and water and the total measurement length is eight inches with four inches dedicated to the handle art.  It is not too heavy and it is sturdy.  Enjoy Art That Sets You Apart!  For more gift giving ideas please visit the online storefront often as items are all one-of-a-kind and hand-made to be totally unique and distinctive from the copyrighted art designs of Club Creative Studio.

This item can also become a special keepsake server as a thoughtful gift.  Consider having your Artisan Server become personalized  by having the four-inch long server surface professionally engraved by a professional in your area.  This one-of-a-kind item will certainly present your meal in an artful manner.  Picture the thoughtfulness shown on the face of someone receiving this item as a hostess or housewarming gift.  Family and friends can appreciate the unique and festive kitchen art, as you decide to maybe not hide it in a kitchen drawer!
