Host the dream Girl's Night Bonfire in #DIYTheParty with Carla B.
I picked these items because I've moved to a different area, and I'm missing my girlfriends, and the parties we used to have, on one of the ladies patio, with her firepit, warming our toes, as the night cooled, and the wine and friendly banter and stories earned our hearts. I've pulled these together, thinking of and evening around the fire, laughing, enjoying ourselves, with homemade Blackberry wine, Summer Punch with Bourbon, Bubbles, and Lavender, Strawberry Lemonade, and a variety of snacks, to munch on, with them. Later, we'd turn it all into a slumber party, complete with a big breakfast, of Ice Capp coffee, Mango Banana Blueberry Smoothies, dragonfruit cocktail, Skillet Baked Huevos Rancheros, Bacon Poptarts, and Cinnamon Nut Raisin Bagels. I'd love to truly have this party, if only I could get them all here, for it!
Recreate the look of Blackpink Lisa in her Ddu-du Ddu-du video for #DIYTheLook with Alternativelychiic.
Blackpink's Lisa's is a fashion inspiration to me because she is never afraid to try different styles. I love that in the music videos she is always wearing daring, un-conventional outfits. She wears pieces of different clothes that you would never think of to put together. In the "DDU-DU DDU-DU" video she is wearing all these amazing outfits, but the one that caught my eye the most is the outfit where she is wearing a graphic tshirt, with a blazer, sparkly shorts and boots, and green gloves. This is a combination that one would think would be unappealing, but she pulls it off as she always does with anything she wears.

I love the fact that my kitchen is ultra functional. This is a working kitchen, it's clean and modern and it opens out to a view of my garden while I'm working at the stove.

I love that it's MY creative space, away from home. Having created at home for a long time - tidying up at the end of every day - it's amazing having my own space to work and be inspired. I have the space to leave the jobs out and come back to it when I or it is ready.

My favourite thing definitely has to be a toss-up between the bench and my cake decorating pantry. The bench is pretty huge - 1.4m wide and 2.8m long (about 4.6ft x 9.1ft), so there is plenty of room to spread out when we’re working in the kitchen. The cake pantry is a cake decorator’s dream, with everything neatly arranged and easy to access. I am not a naturally tidy baker or cake decorator, so having everything handy and organised right behind the bench makes it much easier for me to tidy as I go. It took me a few weeks to figure out the best way to store everything and to purchase a bunch of plastic drawers and dividers, but now everything is easy to find and easy to pack away when I’m done working. We also have an instant boiling water tap that I’m grateful for every morning when I don’t have to wait for an electric kettle to boil to make a cup of tea. This girl needs tea ASAP when she wakes up!
We head to Salem, Oregon to meet #FeaturedMember noraknickers!
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I think it was a tutorial search on youtube, and then I joined for book giveaways :)
What projects are you currently working on?
I'm currently between projects, but I've recently been reunited with my craft stashes and so am plotting.Read the rest of the interview »

It's mine, really mine. Since we married in 1991 we rented 21 homes across 5 states and 12 towns...and then last year we bought a home of our very own. Now we can work with the 'bones' of our house and slowly bring it to life in style and purpose, making it a true expression of who we are and our plans for the future.
