Crafty Chica Giveaway

With a life motto of “Crafts! Drama! Glitter!” Crafty Chica Kathy Cano-Murillo is a creative force of nature. A former syndicated columnist for The Arizona Republic, she is the founder of the award-winning Web site, and the author of seven nonfiction craft books and a Web series on Kathy has a Crafty Chica line of art supplies that are sold nationwide. She also has been featured in numerous media outlets such as The New York Times Magazine, NPR’s Weekend Edition, USA TodayBust, and Latina magazine. She has shared her crafty ideas on local television, as well as on Sí TV, HGTV, and DIY network. She has been writing stories longer than she has been crafting. Inspired by Judy Blume and Erma Bombeck, she caught the literary bug in grade school, where she used to draw a picture and then write a colorful story to go with it. It’s a creativity exercise she still practices to this day! Kathy lives in Phoenix, Arizona, with her husband, two kids, and five Chihuahuas. This is her second novel.

Kathy has a knack for writing stories. Her first novel ( Waking Up in the Land of Glitter ) was a great read. Now she has penned her second novel, Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing. I just have to say , I LOVED it! 

Take a look at her book trailer on YouTube

Yes, Kathy has her own channel!!

I have been a fan of Crafty Chica for many years. Her Latina style is exciting and fresh
Creativity is her middle name and Craftiness is her game.

Take a look at her blog 

What did I tell you? She is awesome!

And now Kathy has generously offered two of my readers a copy of her latest novel. 
But that's not all. 

 Whatever do you mean Charity?
