Kathy Cano-Murillo, aka the Crafty Chica, is making the most of this momentous month, along with the release of her debut novel, Waking Up in the Land of Glitter ($13.99, Grand Central Publishing), with a 30-Day celebration of all things glitter.

    I am actually formulating my next project – my dad passed away 2 years ago, and when we were cleaning out the house I took snippets of his clothing that was too worn to give away – things he wore ALL the time, and things like the blankets on his bed & I plan on making 2 wall hangings out of the items I collected – for me, the “percolating” of the idea is the beginning : ). Now, I also have a sewing machine fear (I have TWO of them & I am clueless) so I know they are going to be hand stitched : )
