Featured Member Interview

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

I found it years ago and contacted you guys about featuring one of my first books and you did! Since then I've been a huge fan and forever grateful to you.

What projects are you currently working on?

I have a show finally coming out in September barring any programming glitches. It's called Make Your Mark and it's based on my YouTube Channel. I have a book coming out in about a month all about Chalky Finish Paint and it will be FREE! It's an e-book.

What does your craft space look like?

Most of the time it looks like it's been through an earthquake......

Which tool or craft supply do you use the most?

E-6000 glue and lately Chalky Finish Paints from Americana Decor. I've been redecorating my house and I've been using them like crazy on everything.

What do you craft along to?

Actually, I listen to classic rock. Lots of 70s music like early Elton John and Billy Joel. My assistant says my musical taste gives her nightmares.

Mark's Top Crafts

If you could learn one new craft or make anything, what would it be?

I think I would finally like to learn how to crochet. I just can't seem to get the hang of it. Every time I try, I mess up and get frustrated.

Who are your crafting heroes?

So many! My list is very long, but I adore Margot Potter and Cathy Attix. They've both got such terrific style.
