Introducing…MantasticCrafts.com!

www.MantasticCrafts.com by Patrick Murillo.

It is Patrick’s new web site, designed by Jacob Dietz from Porchlight MCG! Jacob is the magic man behind CraftyChica.com, and when we told him what we wanted for Patrick’s site, he perfectly captured the energy and spirit!

Patrick has been tinkering with his new toy for the past month and today he granted me permission to share it with all of you! When I met Patrick, he was an aspiring architect working a day job at the traffic court. He is the one who ultimately talked me into decoupaging pictures onto wood boxes, and string beads into jewelry back in the day, and the rest is history! If it were not for him, there would be no crafty chica! For many years, his paintings served as our main source of income, and I’m so happy he finally has the cyber home he deserves!

Here is the REAL reason he wanted a site, heh-heh. He got tired of people asking him, “If she is the Crafty Chica, does that make you the Crafty Chico?” His machismo side emerged and he would say “NO! I am not the Crafty Chico!” One day he replied, “I’m into mantastic crafts. She’s the Crafty Chica, and I’m the Mantastic Crafter…” And we both looked at eachother and raised one eyebrow – because it just clicked. We came home and bought the URL and he wrote his artist’s statement.

Wow, so now we have three brands in our family: Crafty Chica, Maya in the Moment and now Mantastic Crafts! Drop Patrick a note to say hi, or leave him a comment. He is a shy blogger, I’m trying to lure him out of his typing shell. DeAngelo will be helping him with taking pictures and posting them. Although I’m not sure if I’ll like that because you may finally learn the other side of all my kooky stories from Patrick’s perspective…eek!

Read yesterday’s blog post! His paintings were in a background shot of that new TV show called The Cougar on TV Land!

And double thanks with whipped cream and a cherry to those of you who already signed up for the next cruise! Jim from ScrapMap.com emailed me about a few hours after I posted the info and told me that people had been calling all afternoon to register. This cruise is going to RAWK!

Peace, love, and glitter!
Kathy 🙂

P.S. Check out my new book and product line!

Love & light,
