Victoria is a city which I fall in love over and over again the older I get. The people here are friendly and we have the perfect balance of a city that is not too big and not too small . Whenever I travel and come home it always makes me appreciate the character this city has along with its diverse culture and activities it has to offer. I am a loud proud Islander and Victorian and love inviting people over to "the rock" to show them just how amazing this city is. It may not be a place that has ever been on your list but I promise you once you leave you will be raving about your island adventure.

Annlouise from Sequins in Pink recreates the chic style of pop princess Taylor Swift.
What I love with Taylor Swift's style is that she one day can have a black, tight, sexy dress and the next day a floral skirt and a cute bag. No matter what she wear, she is always well-dressed and her outfits are always perfectly composed.

How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I found this place many many years ago when it was just Cat! I joined much later after I saw it became a big, great community for crafting!
What projects are you currently working on?
Right now, I'm decorating a pair of converse. I've dyed them purple, added some metal spikes right at the back, and am using Angelus leather paint to decorate them with symbols and writing. I will post them here when I finish!
As I mentioned, I'm also decorating a denim vest. I have already put a load of patches and buttons on it. I plan to add spikes as well, and I am decorating lots of the vest with rhinestones!Read the rest of the interview »

DIY T-Shirt Crafts
We chat to Adrianne Surian, give you the chance to win the book and learn how-to make a Floral Bib Style Necklace, Braided Yarn Bowl and Knotted Hanging Planter.
Hi, I'm Adrianne. I'm a crafter, artist, writer, and all-around DIY-er. I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan with my husband and two kids, and I pretty much survive on coffee and crazy ideas. (I wish I were just being clever, but that's actually true.) I started blogging craft projects in 2011 at my website, happyhourprojects.com, and having that outlet really led me to craft more and write more and really pursue my creative side that I had kind of neglected for a few years.
