Markee recreates a boozy office party from the TV show Mad Men.

I'd love it if my office threw a Mad Men themed party, it would be a chance to dress up in your office finery, and then let your hair down after hours. It would be a great way to find out about all of the office gossip, but make sure to go easy on the alcohol! Remember you have to work with these people in the daytime!

Great question! I'd say that the fact that I share my space with my kids is fun. They can see what I'm creating and be inspired to create their own things crafts all at the same time.




I am a Wednesday's child. Full of woe. (You know the rhyme, right?) So it makes sense for me to dress up this halloween as Wednesday Addams, one of my key reference points waaaay back when I was forming my personality. (My other personal inspiration is Daria (yes, my personal development was heavily based on a cartoon... And what?!), but I went as her last year so I decided to shake it up a little this year. Well, swap one sarcastic, caustic, enormously witty character for another sarcastic, caustic, enormously witty character. And it's so easy! I chose ten simple tutorials to make the outfit and accessories - all chosen to turn my trusty LBD into a costume fit for a fabulously deadpan goth girl! I wanted to give it a bit of a grown-up twist, so I went with the smoky eye and fishtail braids, but I also wanted to keep the look playful, which is where the eyeball ribbon bows come in (these bows would also look pretty cool pinned to a pair of mary janes, but I chose the shoe wings tutorial - which can be used to make shapes of your choice for your shoes; not just wings. I'm thinking axes or daggers.) Adding a white peter pan collar completes the foundations of your outfit, and now all that's left is to accessorise! I've chosen a poison pendant, rosary beads, a doll head, some painted tights (mine are crosses, not polka dots, just for that extra gothic flair), and a book clutch (you could fashion a spellbook, or maybe a prayer book if you want to be a bit controversial! And you could easily add a strap to make this bag more manageable). And there you have it! Wednesday!

I'm a New York-based arts writer, author, curator and event planner, working hard to help artists navigate their way through the tough art world. Variety is the spice of life, so I spend my time juggling planning shows, writing for blogs, selling art and doing PR for artists. It can be overwhelming but also keeps me on my toes and passionate for art (and inspired).

Kerry and Andy recreate the stylish home of designer Orla Kiely.

Fashion, textile and housewares designer Orla Kiely is known for her bold, graphic prints inspired by 1960s modernism, and her own home reflects this same style. She has filled her London townhouse with lots of bright colors, wood furniture and her iconic patterns on throw pillows and wallpaper. We love how she has blended vintage and modern to make her home look cheerful and unique, and we'd love to recreate this midcentury look in our home, too!
