Featured Member Interview
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I was Google-ing easy T-shirt reconstruction projects for a student program I oversee, found the site and forgot to leave.
What projects are you currently working on?
I’ve really cut down and am trying to focus. So, my summer challenge is an outdoor furniture/sectional made of pallet boards. I am also finishing up my wine bottle votive, dragonfly yard art, bottled outdoor solar lights, tumbled glass jewelry, iPhone case/wallets, several clothing and belt reconstructions, an Anuschka style painted purse, two shoe projects, a mosaic beach purse, snow dyed robes, canning, food preservation and home-made liquor… uhhh, there is actually more, but I’m suddenly getting really stressed out!!!!

What does your craft space look like?
Uhhhh, which one? The office/guest room/sewing room, the garage and the kitchen are my main retreats and they all are the usual array of unfinished genius.
Love my new garage, the kitchen shot is just some of my favorite things. My baby chick egg separator and full length apron always pair well with a nice chardonnay! WE just remodeled the office/bedroom/craft room nad haven't painted to finished organizing it. But honestly, I think most of us have space that looks just like this. Well, excluding the cat...lol So, this is the "real" space right now.
Which tool or craft supply do you use the most?
What do you craft along to?
Kitchen: Madeleine Peyroux of Celtic music Office: My cat crying to get in my lap. And, of course the sound of any power tool in the garage! =P
Leona's Most Popular Projects
“Jack of all Trades, master of none”. I will try anything at least once. I am an avid, recycle, renew, reuse, “Band-Aids and duct tape” kinda’ girl so anything that I can re-purpose with an emphasis on stuff people would just throw away. “ Free” is my favorite 4 letter word!
