We meet xYaelle who loves drawing and making statement necklaces.
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
One of my friends told me about the website, and when I went to look on it I saw so many great art projects that I just had to sign up! It's a great source for so many different art projects.
What projects are you currently working on?
Currently, not so much. I still want to entire fill my vase with Lucky Stars but that's way too much work. And I'm always drawing something, I'm working on a drawing of a friend at this moment. And I'm trying to get some new ideas for a statement necklace! And I want to learn how to crochet and make a blanket. And... And... And... I just want too much hahaha.Read the rest of the interview »

Fun with Stitching

Hi everyone. I'm a sewing and knitting writer, living just outside London in the UK. I'm largely self taught and studied politics at university, so nothing at all arty. But my heart has always been in making things. When I was 11, I won my school sewing cup for a pair of slightly dodgy looking blue seersucker pyjamas. And although I've written a lot of knitting books recently, sewing is my first love. I used to teach it and am still part of a local sewing group.
Mistress Nora of Madness recreates the colourful hippyish style of a boho party from the 60's.
The sixties was all about sharing and caring. Peace not War. Breaking out of the restrictive clothes and concepts of the 50's. No more doing what is expected of you. It was a time of thinking for yourself and standing up for what you thought was correct. Loving everyone=no matter. Loving Mother Earth and her resources.
I’m a Portuguese illustrator, currently living in Lisbon with my boyfriend and my cat. I like to draw cat ladies wearing colorful outfits and some of my inspiring fictional characters of literature/ cinema. Apart for being an illustrator I’m also a lawyer.

The most beautiful and my most favorite thing in Tallinn is the Baltic sea. You can go to the beach and have fun there, or go on the special rotes for bicycles and roller-skates, which is done on seaside, sit on cozy benches in the harbour, observe how big and small ships arrive to the Tallinn.
