Hi, I’m Kathy Cano-Murillo,
The Crafty Chica!
Welcome to my Crafty Chica™ world : Mexi-style creativity is my thing! Maker inspiration, recipes, home decor, travel, storytelling, & entrepreneurship! I’m an artist, author, and speaker. In addition to sharing craft tutorials, I also work in ceramics, create illustrations for greeting cards and stationery items, and more! I’m a fourth-gen maker & a third-gen Mexi-chica from Phoenix, AZ. I launched Crafty Chica™ in 2001 as a way to bring Latinocentric crafts to mainstream audiences. Let’s work together!
Upcoming appearances and events are here.

As Seen In
I specialize in Mexi-style crafts & DIY projects, and so much more. This site is my Crafty Chica message about creating a custom, artful, uplifting life you love. Using creativity as a way to make your mark on the world and to tell your story. This is what inspired me to start by Crafty Chica blog in 2001. Now, two decades later, I’m still at it because life is always evolving. From the shiny parts to the fails – every experience has a lesson.
I hope you’ll find inspiration here. Gracias for visiting my corner of the interwebs!
