The best thing about living in Bristol is its independent spirit and its funky street art which has transformed parts of the city into a huge outdoor art gallery. Street artist Banksy started off in Bristol and the city continues this legacy by welcoming street art and street art festivals such as See No Evil and UpFest.

Anna Bean recreates the whimsical vintage style of singer and songwriter Regina Spektor.
The reason why I choose Regina Spektor's style, was because of the whimsical, vintage, and 50's feel that it is. I also like that it truly reflect the kind of person she it (both her personality, and her music.)
I am a designer, illustrator, and calligrapher living in Boulder, Colorado, USA. When I was a little girl, I was constantly drawing ... I would nestle myself into the craft room of our family home and draw a story while I narrated it out loud. The story invariably focused around a princess in some sort of peril -- mostly because I liked illustrating women in beautiful dresses! Not many of my clients request pretty princess drawings (their loss!), so I decided to seize the opportunity to make a fashion-forward, princess-like Crafterella for Cut Out + Keep. I had a lot of fun creating this piece!

The best thing about Glasgow is it is a big little city. Everything is so accessible and easy to get to. Even though it's a city, it's cheap to live in. The streets are full of people, but you're likely to bump into a friend along the way. There are so many events and activities to take part in all at your doorstep.
We head behind the scenes at Delineate Your Dwelling to tour Amy's office / guest room in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
It's amazing what some simple furniture rearranging and new paint on the walls can do! The space feels so much larger and brighter now. Then, I added tons of things that make me happy and feel creative to personalize it.
