About  Us 

We're two creative + determined women and a bunch of pets

We want to live in a world where everyone loves to mix up their media and enjoy art making and friends around the world, no matter where you live or how you create.


As art explorers and podcasters, we have been featured on the Etsy.com blog, CreateMixedMedia.com, CraftGossip.com, PolymerClayDaily.com, BlogTalkRadio.com, and in magazine articles and books including our own, Polymer Clay Art Jewelry, published with F & W Media and available at Michael’s, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and more.


When we are not up to our elbows in polymer clay, covered in paint with beads stuck in our hair, you can find us outdoors enjoying nature, reading a great book, or snuggling with our fur babies.

  • Dec 26 2006


    Ilysa posts in the Etsy forums looking for people to start a polymer clay street team. Kira answers the callout and starts building a website for the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy (PCAGOE.)

    After working on that for several months, we meet in Orlando and hatch the plan for Polymer Clay TV's YouTube channel.

  • June 2007


    PolymerClayTV Episode 1! Followed by hundreds more, we faithfully produce a new show weekly for the next 13 years... and counting.

  • January 2013

    We visit the CHA/Creativation show and are invited to publish our book, Polymer Clay Art Jewelry, by F&W Publishing. First sightings at B.A.M. and Michaels! 

  • October 2014

    PCA 2015 Online Art Retreat is born and released into the world. Over a thousand creative souls join us and 24 teachers from around the world in our first online creative collaboration for polymer clay. There might be copies now, but we started the original Polymer Clay Adventure workshops and community.

  • Mid-2015

    CreateAlong.com is the best name we could ever have for our brand new retail product shop- we've been inviting people to create along with us for YEARS on YouTube, and now we can make it happen with our own manufactured products. We start with silkscreens using our own "top secret" process, and add in texture sheets... rubber stamps... molds... 3d printed cutters... and away we go!

  • Currently...

    We are always coming up with new things! We have a Subscription box full of monthly art supplies, we publish Passion for Polymer monthly magazine, and we host a yearly PCA community as well as our private VIP Create Along Club!
