Host a Paddington Bear afternoon tea for your cubs in #DIYTheParty with Cat.

I've started a new tradition of treating my family to Afternoon Tea on Christmas Eve and this year the theme was Paddington Bear. We designed the table to look like a train and each "passenger" got a set of bear ears, and a passport with the menu and a ticket from Darkest Peru to Paddington Station. We tucked into mini bear burgers, bear paw crackers, soup in marmalade jars and marmalade sandwich cookies from mini suitcases. After our tea, we went to see Paddington 2 at the cinema and it was the perfect day!

Join us for a #CraftRoomTour of Annya Marttinden's illustration & printing studio in Ontario, Canada.

Definitely the long window sills that let a ton of natural light pour in throughout the day. My ceiling is pretty high since it is an apartment on the top floor. My second favourite thing about my space is the furniture. My desk has drawers where I can perfectly fit Etsy products such as bookmarks, stickers and postcards. In my experience it is very rare to find a wooden desk with drawers and compartments for art supplies. Another fantastic feature to my desk is it is on two levels where I can put my iMac higher than the space that I am working with my hands which helps a TON with posture so that I am not craning my neck downwards all of the time.

Make a splash and host a mermaid party in #DIYTheParty with PienderZ.

The winter is almost done! Thank God cause I am done with the winter! So let's celebrate the upcoming summer with a Mermade party! I love the colours of the sea, de shells and the vacationvibe. But I also love fantasy, so I decided to combine these two things. That's how I came up with this Mermaid Party. Give your party colours of blue and green and here and there a splash of red. For more inspiration to lift your party to the next level, check the tutorials I've picked out for jou. Have a great summer!!

We head to Mechanicsville, Virginia to meet #FeaturedMember fetisha who is always wanting to add another crafty project on her to-do list.

How did you find CO+K and why did you join?

I joined so long ago, I can't even remember how I found the site! I was probably surfing around looking for a tutorial on something and found CO+K, fell in love with the site, and immediately became a member :) I want to say that I was looking for ideas of how to refashion old t-shirts, I've been doing projects like that for years.


What projects are you currently working on?

I just finished having a huge Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland-themed costume party for my 30th birthday. I made a lot of stuff for that party, including a Sharpie-colored Treat Stand, a Mushroom cake, several mini top hats, photo booth props, Alice's Um dress, and several other projects. Now that that's over, I'm working on spring cleaning and hopefully getting some mini top hats made- I've been thinking of some ideas that I hope will be great!


We're getting creative with Mackmyra Whisky in this week's #CocktailHour and mixing up a Popcorn Sour, First Footer and curing our own salmon to make Eggs Royale.




Create a jungle themed party in #DIYTheParty with Helen W.

The weather is cold and grey at the moment so I wanted to create a party that would help transport us to more tropical climes. I decided a jungle themed party would be perfect. I'd invite my guests to create their own animal masks or maybe some funky animal print jewellery or a headdress. I'd set the scene with plants, fairy lights and wind chimes to help transport us into a another world inspired by far away lands. Of course, we'd need some snacks and who could resist guacamole or maybe some fruit pizza all washed down with some exotic punch or a super green smoothie for the drivers.
