The best thing about living in Shrewsbury is that there is a lot of history here. From Shrewsbury castle to the Tudor buildings that are still seen today. Shrewsbury is on the bend of the River Severn and has some lovely bridges; The English Bridge, The Welsh Bridge and Port Hill Bridge. Shrewsbury is also the birthplace of Charles Darwin and also where ‘A Christmas Carol (1984)’ was shot. . . . Love that film! There are lovely churches as well as fantastic galleries to check out. There is always something to do here.
We head to Oakville in Ontario, Canada to tour Darcy Allan's craft space.
I am so grateful to have a spot away from my living quarters to go to and make a mess. It's also an outlet for all the tiny, pink + mint green furniture I paint or thrift.
I've been huge fans of the Instax camera for a long time and when I heard Fujifilm had come out with a new printer, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and come up with some crafty photography tutorials for this week's Craft Test.
The Instax Share connects to your smart phone so you can print existing shots instantly and works with the same film as the Instax camera, so you don't need to buy a new stash if you've already got some at home. It's small and compact, which makes it great for travel and would be ideal at a party or wedding, letting your guests print shots to take home like a mobile photo-booth. My favourite thing about the printer is being able to turn any existing shot into a print, as there have been so many times I've kick myself for not bringing my Instax camera along to an event. It's also ideal for photography pros, who like to get creative, use filters and edit their shots when they get home.
Cazz from Nerd Burger recreates the look of actress Molly Ringwald.
From the moment I saw Molly Ringwald I knew I wanted to be her. Effortlessly cool with her sassy mouth and fashion sense. Molly took what was expected of fashion in the 80's and turned it into someone incredible. Bowler hats with bright scarves, a single earrings with glittering in the sunlight and floral denim pants galore. She was not afraid to take something plain and DIY it into something inspiring and unique. It's thanks to Molly Ringwald and her big, bold and pink fashion sense that I dress the way I do today.

Serena from A loser like me recreates the make-up of Katy Perry in her This Is How We Do music video and gives her a grunge makeover.
Katy Perry is probably my favourite Hollywood Star right now, she's funny and sexy at the same time, she's edgy and cute.. I love her style cause it just reflects these characteristics at the same time! I'd love to give her a makeover cause she's such a chameleonic woman, she's rocked every single look you could possibly imagine: she's a california girl, she can roar like a lion and cast a perfect storm and her love is extraterrestrial. So the real challenge was to find something not too sophisticated that everyone could recreate and wear but that I hope she would still appreciate and like.
My name is Vladimir, I'm a graphic designer and illustrator living in Odense, Denmark. In my work I love to combine my interest and passion towards illustration and graphic design, with the use of both traditional and digital mediums. My inspiration comes from science and nature on one hand, and fantasy, fairy tales and all sorts of mysteries on the other. Check out my work on Etsy - https://www.etsy.com/shop/vladimirsart
