We head to Malaysia to meet #FeaturedMember Harmini who believes in creating magic through art!

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

I found CO+K while randomly browsing through some artsy blogs and immediately fell in love with it. There was so many cool ideas I absolutely had to try and contribute as well. I liked the idea of an arts and crafts community that was easy to use.


What projects are you currently working on?

More dreamcatchers! The ideas and themes just keep flowing through and it can't stop! I'm always really excited about the next one I create because I never know how it turns out.

Paper Dandy's Horrorgami

Shelf 41jdy8ncx5l

We chat to Marc a.k.a Paper Dandy, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to make a Haunted House!

I’m a kirigami artist and design director. I started making kirigami about 3 years ago. It makes me feel like a kid again. Kirigami is cutting and folding paper. In it’s simplest form it’s making a snow flake from paper to more complex architectural replicas.

Come on a #KnittingNook tour of Nikki's house in the woods in Volcano, Hawaii.

It's peacefulness, it's inspiration. I came from the city back to my hometown of Volcano, Hawaii, and every day I find myself taking a deep breath of gratitude. It's a smaller space, but it feels more expansive, particularly since I can work anywhere!


Recreate the bedroom of Miss Piggy from The Muppets in #DIYTheRoomMeredith with Meredith from The Papery Craftery.

Ever since I was a little girl, I've been fascinated by The Muppets. I love the craftsmanship of all the puppets and their unique personalities, especially Miss Piggy. She is so over-the-top and dramatic; very much the opposite of me. With this room, I'm indulging my ultra-girly side to make it perfect for this diva. I've chosen soft fabrics, a glam mirror, lots of pink and a bit of gold. Plus, a few adorable plush doughnuts, because this lady loves her sweets!

We head to Cedar City in Utah to meet #FeaturedMember DreamsInBloom who likes to try the next thing rather than doing the same craft again.

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

It's been so long since I joined I don't remember how I found it. But I loved so many cool things people were sharing and tutorials I found there I wanted to see more and I wanted to Favorite the projects I liked most.


What projects are you currently working on?

I don't know if it counts as crafting, but I've been making my own digital pdf planner.

I also got a messenger bag from a thrift store that lacked and real structure, so when I put stuff in it kind of collapsed in on itself. So I got some plastic canvas and lined the inside of the bag with it. But I want to somehow add pockets or such to it, so it doubles as a purse organizer too.
