Hey, if you’re in Los Angeles and you love glitter, Kathy Cano Murillo needs your help! The Crafty Chica is organizing a rally for a week from today, Tuesday, April 8. Why? Because talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres hates glitter and is (jokingly?) trying to get it banned.
So Kathy is doing her best to win Ellen over to the sparkly side. First, there’s a “glitter awareness” rally (with free craft supplies from Duncan) at Ellen’s television studio in Burbank on April 8. Jenny Ryan will be there in a glitter-painted CRAFT t-shirt, alongside the Crafty Chica herself, members of the LA Craft Mafia, and fun folks like TLC’s Mark Montano (author of The Big-Ass Book of Crafts) and Cathie Filian from DIY’s Creative Juice! Check out Jenny’s awesome post on the CRAFT: blog for more details, too.
If you’d like to join them, just come on by Ellen’s studio at 3000 West Alameda Ave. in Burbank, CA at 12 noon on April 8. For lots more info on this and updates as the rally gets closer, be sure to keep an eye on Kathy’s blog — the latest news is that she’s teamed up with Etsy to raise money for charity, too.
Speaking of Kathy, I got a peek at her marvelous (and yes, very glittery) Crafty Chica craft supplies line at CHA and I was wowed. I can’t wait until her line is out in the world — just a month or two from now, hooray! Here’s just one of her many beautiful products:
The new collection will premiere soon and I’ll definitely keep you posted!
