It's filled with all the fabrics that I've collected over the years and some sweet gifts that I have received from all over the world. It's where I feel motivated and inspired.

Come behind the scenes at Felted Button for a #KnittingNookTour and see Susan's headquarters in Sandy.
I find the colorful chaos of my space stimulates my inspiration, as long as it stays a bit organized! Often, all it takes is a little rummaging through yarn bins, lining up balls of yarn across the floor, and grabbing my hook to really get me busy creating. My least favorite part of my space is actually my computer--because the work I do there is my least favorite--pattern writing, tech editing and answering email. To help with this--I add lots of colorful bits and bobs around, like a crocheted mouse pad to make it feel less like drudgery and more like creative play.

Recreate the look of Taylor Swift in #MakeoverMonday with Nicole from Makeup By Nicole and then create a warm glittery makeover.
What I love about Taylor's style is that it is classic and timeless. I love that she has her own signature look!
My name is Nathanna Érica and I'm an illustrator and paper artist based in São Paulo, Brazil. I can't imagine my life without art, and having graduated from Law school a few years ago made me see that doing anything else other than being an artist would be really difficult.
Recreate Ed Sheeran's bedroom in #DIYTheRoom with John from The Art Dream.
Lately Ed Sheehan has been blowing up the radio with his trendy, catchy tunes, and they’re all a great listen, how could you not be a fan?! i had this amazing singer/songwriter in mind when i put together the projects for this inspired room, I’d imagine Ed Sheehan having a home filled with rustic pieces and soft lighting. i pictured a modern but hip musical influence as well. I’d most certainly decorate my home with a bit of Ed Sheehan suave!
