DIY Donut Bow Shoe And Hair Clips!

You can find almost everything in the bustling city of Tokyo, from a vast variety of craft supplies to good food. But one thing I love most about Tokyo is that everything is so bizarre (fashion, lifestyle, food, language) that it feels okay to do just about anything here... as long as it's not against the law. It's totally normal to walk around the city wearing your favorite anime character's outfit (complete with a magic wand if applicable!) but the locals find it strange to see someone eating a piece of bread while walking.
Come behind the scenes at Curious Pip. and tour Sarah's studio in Bristol.
It's a rather cosy little shoebox in the corner of our kitchen, yet it's part of my home and very much my domain. We're very lucky in that we have a rather spacious kitchen and I occupy one corner of it. It looks out onto the garden from large patio doors and gets lots of lovely sunlight.
Sian from The Makeup Honey recreates the look of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Hi Cut Out & Keep! I'm back again! Last time I was here I was a Beauty Superstar, this time I have been playing Cebrity Stylist and created a Buffy The Vampire Slayer themed look book. Buffy was a huge part of my childhood, I loved that she was a confident and powerful female within a terrifying world, she was strong but not afraid to show fear. Loyalty, love, friendship and acceptance are prominent themes in the Buffyverse, often teaching us that different is not always scary if you only give it a chance. Like Clem, Clem was amazing (the demon that used to babysit Dawn). Growing up with Buffy, I loved her style. Girly but practical, it is no coincidence that my wardrobe became full of skinny jeans, leather pants, floaty tops and boots. When I put this look book together, browsing through all the amazing tutorials on Cut Out & Keep I had so many flashbacks to different Buffy episodes. I hope you enjoy the look I put together and that you agree that it is something Buffy would definitely wear

We head to Dallas to meet TheYearlingBlog who is working her way through 365 projects, one day at a time!
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I just sort of stumbled upon the website when I was looking for crochet project ideas. I joined because I fell in love with the idea of a craft community I could both share all of my ideas with and constantly be inspired by.
What projects are you currently working on?
I'm writing a 365 blog, because I'm completely insane, that focuses on the idea of doing something every day. I've loved writing for forever so holding myself accountable to craft and then write about it has been amazing for my writing production as well as my psyche.Read the rest of the interview »

I trained as a graphic designer a lifetime ago, and worked in the West End for ten years – as a designer I was determined, but also lucky, spanning the 80's and 90's. I then retrained to teach art, specialising in graphics and textiles. I teach profoundly deaf teenagers, but only a couple of days a week. My work for Making Magazine and my books could take up all the hours I have!
Libby recreates the colourful New York apartment of Max from TV show, 2 Broke Girls.
I love Max from 2 broke girl's open-plan apartment, it's so full of colour and personality. It's such a treasure-trove of found and thrifted things; I wish I could go there and snoop around!
