Featured Member Interview
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I found CO+K while searching for how to make a corset pattern, and fell in love with the site. After being a lurker for a few months, I joined to enter in one of your contests. Soon after I received a sweet comment and a few favorites which encouraged me to add more projects and I am now addicted.
What projects are you currently working on?
I am currently 8 hours into a tatted necklace. (pic attached)

What does your craft space look like?
Attached are 2 pictures of my living room, where I do all of my crafties.
Which tool or craft supply do you use the most?
I have scissors stashed everywhere, because I am lost without them.
What do you craft along to?
Music is always nice, and I love anything girly, like Sneaker Pimps and Bjork.
Jessica's Most Popular Projects
I enjoy needle tatting the most and usually tat lace jewelry. Tatting is easy to master leaving me open to designing new patterns rather then learning new stitches.
Jessica's Top Crafts
If you could learn one new craft or make anything, what would it be?
The next craft I hope to learn is fiberglass. I saw a custom mount for a stereo made with stretch velvet and fiberglass resin and thought that would be a cool way to make masks.
Who are your crafting heroes?
My crafting heroes are my grandparents Mike and Andre Stansbury. They have done everything from macrame to giant metal sculptures, and even taxidermy. Every trip to their house left me inspired and with new techniques under my belt. After 57 years of marriage they are still creating beautiful works of art together. Here is a link to pictures of their last gallery showing.
