I began decorating
birthday and wedding
cakes for friends and
family when I was
teenager growing up
in Mission, B.C. I also
loved to make gingerbread
houses the more detailed,
the better and I
still enjoy both pursuits.
I’ve since married, had
four kids, and moved to
Prince Rupert, B.C., only
to return to Mission nine
years later. But the skills,
patience and attention to detail I first developed
as a teen continue to serve me well today,
as a polymer clay artist.

I began decorating

family when I was
teenager growing up
in Mission, B.C. I also
loved to make gingerbread
houses the more detailed,
the better and I
still enjoy both pursuits.
I’ve since married, had
four kids, and moved to
Prince Rupert, B.C., only
to return to Mission nine
years later. But the skills,
patience and attention to detail I first developed
as a teen continue to serve me well today,
as a polymer clay artist.
I’m self taught and make all my ornaments
and figurines by hand, without the
use of molds or paints. Sometimes an
idea for a new creation comes to me
in the middle of the night, so I‘ll get up
out of bed and work on my new design
while the idea is fresh. I also get many design
ideas from my children, actually that’s how
the whole thing began. I’d make home-made
play dough for them and we’d create all kinds of
figurines and play food together. I discovered I really
enjoyed creating with play dough and I began
to experiment a bit. When I tried out polymer clay,
I realized I could get very creative and very detailed
with it. And I did! A
store owner who had seen my work offered
to sell my products. My friends
encouraged me to accept the offer
and that was the beginning of my
home based business, supplying
stores with handcrafted
ornaments and figurines.
At first, I focused mainly on Christmas,
but with the growing trend toward really celebrating
other holidays and special occasions, I’ve branched
out considerably. I now have well over a hundred designs
and my web site is humming along. wwwcherylslittlecreations.com I still supply my first retail store,
Studio 9 in Prince Rupert. My job has been one of great
satisfaction, and, best of all, it affords me the luxury of
being home for my family.
