Markee recreates the enchanted ball from the movie Labyrinth.
I've been enchanted by the movie Labyrinth since I first saw it as an adolescent, especially the ball scene. I'd love to go to this party because it is so magical, beautiful, but also a bit dark. You could come as your favourite goblin, or throw on a prom dress, adorn a mask and hope to steal a dance with a King. Make sure to eat a peach on the way in, to leave all your worries at the door.
It is hard to pick what is the best thing about living in Cambridge! The landscape is what makes me happy as we have so many green spaces, meadows, the river and some beautiful architecture. I often pass cows on my cycles around so it hardly feels like a city in some places! The bicycle culture makes it a fantastic place to get around too!
Come behind the scenes at Squirrel Picnic and tour Jennifer's craft headquarters in Colorado and her travel studio while on the move.
Leeyong from Style Wilderness recreates the colourful traditional style of Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo.
I love Frida Kahlo's use of colour, flowers and traditional clothing at a time when other people were turning to standard western fashion like jeans and T-shirts. She really recognised how traditional Mexican outfits suited her and they became her signature look.

We're joined the new Craft Beer Club from Flavourly for today's Craft Test. Filled with a selection of 8 craft beers, a bottle opener, glass and bar snacks, we got creative with the brews and cooked up some honey beer nuts, a cheese & ale dip and craft brew beercaroons.
CO+K members in the UK can get off £10 off their first Flavourly craft beer box with the code CAT12.
Lindsay from Lacquered Lawyer teaches us how to recreate Miley Cyrus' dope camo nail manicure and then gives her a music maniac makeover.
Miley definitely pushes the boundaries with her wardrobe choices - definitely not mainstream, and a little (or a lot) more skin than most would deem appropriate. But her style is certainly all her own, and I give her credit for not caring what anyone thinks.

I am a designer, author and compulsive maker of things. I run my embroidery business, What Delilah Did (www.whatdelilahdid.com) from my home in a sleepy Norfolk village, where I spend my time making books, pretty cross stitch patterns, kits and squillions of other beautiful crafty things.
We meet Van who is obsessed with pandas, loves mod podge and likes everything craft!
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
Years ago, I was searching for an arts & crafts forum or somewhere to share and socialize with other crafters. I found Cut Out & Keep and knew it was exactly what I was searching for. :)
What projects are you currently working on?
I'm working on my 10 Dresses in 10 Weeks Summer Sewing Series right now. The tutorials are being released every Tuesday for the next couple of months. I'm also working on some upcoming series, including clothing for Sweater Weather and some plushies.Read the rest of the interview »
