Best Glitter
Kathy Cano-Murillo, the Crafty Chica

For years, she’s slaved with the hot glue gun, hoping to make it big. And she has — syndicated newspaper column, books, public appearances, sales of original folk art, workshops, even a show this fall at the Heard Museum.

But all that pales next to the shiny stuff. This year, Kathy Cano-Murillo hit the crafter’s jackpot with her own product line, on sale at Michael’s. Holy Chihuahua! In fact, you can have one of those, in the form of a Crafty Chica iron-on, as well as other iron-ons, paints, and even DIY shrine kits. But our favorite CC creation has got to be Cano-Murillo’s staple ingredient — glitter, which comes in 10 custom colors including Frida’s Fuchsia, Rockabilly Ruby, and Popstar Purple.

Star, indeed! The Valley’s own Crafty Chica is making the world sparkle, one craft project at a time.
