Cook a Maui Wowie Poke and a Soft Shell Crab Appetizer in #ABiteToEat with Norigami.
We head to Albany, New York to meet Melissa Beth who loves to knit, crochet, sew, make jewelry, cook, and bake.
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I was googling no sew T-shirt tutorials. I joined because all of the awesome tutorials that were on there.
What projects are you currently working on?
I am making a Felt Orchid Vintage Hair Slide (https://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/felt-orchid-vintage-hair-slide) for a friend going to Costa Rica. Again, I'm moving so I'm not up to full crafting capability (which is driving me nuts!) but next is probably rainbow leg warmers. And after things settle down, I hope to break out the sewing machine!Read the rest of the interview »

How to Make Resin Jewellery
We chat to Sara, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to make a Shine Brooch!
Hello! I'm Sara, and I'm an avid crafter (okay, that's an understatement). I've been crafting since I was a little girl, and now I'm lucky to say that I've been in the crafting industry as a profession for 23 years! My first love is paper crafting, with jewelry making as a close second. I'm American, but have lived in Europe for the past ten years, and currently live in Germany with my husband and our six-year-old Mini Crafter.
Come behind the scenes at Dine & Dash for a #KitchenTour
My favourite thing about this kitchen are two big windows. They let in lots of natural light and allow me to use the space as a studio for food photography. They’re overlooking a busy Shoreditch street, which our friends absolutely love that when they come over.

Come behind the scenes at Pam Ash Designs for a #CraftRoomTour and see Pam's art studio in Longmont, Colorado.
I love that there is so much natural light and that it is right off the family room so I can access it easily.
Recreate the look of Janelle Monae in #DIYTheLook with Jen from Dressing With Class.
I have been a fan of Janelle Monae's music for years, but it's her style that I truly admire. She manages to take menswear to a feminine and glamorous place, and absolutely shines in black and white. Janelle looks chic on and off the red carpet - her hair is always done to perfection, and her makeup exudes a vintage elegance. I have styled a look with two options - heels and a skirt as well as pants and flats (for when it's time to dance!)
