We had readers post photos of their outfits in the Fashion Issue of Snippets, but there's a whole community where fashionistas can show off their wardrobes. StyleMob allows you to browse through the members photos, rate their fashion sense and post your own photos. It's a great place to pick up fashion tips and find inspiration.

I've had so much fun running Cut Out + Keep over the last 3 years, adding projects and writing my craft blog. It's amazing how much it's grown and I've been so lucky to have had it all to myself.
From now on, Cut Out + Keep is going to be all about you. Within the next couple of weeks, we are going to launch the Project Adder, which will allow you to post your own creations, with photos and step by step instructions. However, before we can launch it properly, we need to get some willing volunteers to test it out. So, if you have a how-to project, with step by step instructions and photos, that you would like to add to the site, send us a message or an e-mail and we'll get you all set up.
Time to get crafty people!

Shawn Lovell makes some amazing railings and trellises, but his most stunning piece has to be this metal sculpted Tree Bed.
I think that waking up to the sight of branches and leaves above would be lovely.

microRevolt is a knitting project targeted against brands that use sweatshop labour. They aim to get the message out by knitting garments with the offending companies' signature logos and their latest project was a petition against Nike, where petitioners would send in hand-knitted squares to represent their signatures. The squares where attached together to produce a 14-foot knit banner of the Nike swoosh. The banner was then presented to Nike Chairman, Phil Knight.
To take part in their future protests and craft against evil, check out their website.

Here's a great way to waste 5 minutes. Mod or Fraud is a cool little quiz that shows you retro looking items and makes you guess whether it's old or new. After you've guessed, it tells you the designer and the year it was made. You'll be surprised, it's not as easy as it looks.

It's a good thing that the mothers of these food-sculptors never told them to stop playing with their food or they would never have created this awesome Veggie Art.

Ever felt like taking a huge white canvas, throwing paint at it and then trying to pass it off as modern art? Well, here's a way to do it without the mess. Jackson Pollock has set up a Flash website, where you can create paint stridden artwork by dragging your mouse across the screen. Simply click your mouse to change the colour of paint you're using and off you go.
It can get rather addictive. Give it a go and then show me your creations.
