Stitch some Ever After Gauntlets and a Eek Posy Cosy in #ShopShowcase with Skeinz in Napier, New Zealand.
Come behind the scenes at Magpie Ethel for a #CraftRoomTour and see Laurie's studio in Portland, Oregon.
I love that the space is entirely mine. I can make as much of a mess and craft away at a whim. I can close the door when I am done and don't have to worry about the mess I leave behind. I also have the majority of my supplies stored in my studio so everything is at arms reach.
Our Sidekicks are getting creative with a Dream Catcher Kit from Makers Kit for today's #CraftTest and creating a range of designs for you to try at home.
Carolynn from moonofsilver creates her dream date night look for this week's #DIYTheLook
I love cute things! If I was going in a date night I'd totally wear these heart print jeans with a fun colorful top! Color draws my eye and so does flair, so I'd top my hair off with a bow and some timeless braids. I'd feel adorable in this assembled outfit, and make my date take me out for chocolate pie for sure. Or in a pinch we could stay in and create our own dessert together!
Mix a Mezcal Martinez and Sinthie Poire cocktail in #ABiteToEat with Hemingway Bar in Prague, Croatia.

We chat to Jennifer, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to create a Paper Animal Painting, Watercolor Butterfly Tree and Birds on a Wire.
I am Jennifer McCully, an avid coffee drinker and color chaser. I am happy. Colorful. Passionate. And a true mess maker. I love creating – nothing in particular. I am 100% self-taught both as a graphic designer and a mixed media artist. Most of the time I am all over the map…whether it be creating for a new art book, creating art for Hobby Lobby or designing and printing vinyl wall decals (a craft I accidently picked up a few years back) for two of my Etsy shops. My days are filled creating from morning till afternoon, taking care of my four girls in the middle as well as family life in the evenings.
We chat to Cooking Superstar and crafter Emilie.
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I found this amazing site through the Superstar feature, and I have really loved being a part of the site and learning from other amazing crafters and cooks :)
What projects are you currently working on?
I am currently working on a Mariner's Compass quilt. It's a very tricky pattern because so many points have to meet, perfectly. The pattern represents maritime history and the rich shipping and seaside heritage of New England. But I'm loving it! Anyone want to come help me finish? haha.Read the rest of the interview »
