Waking Up in the Land of Glitter

I know it's a little late, and i apologize, but life's craziness got in the way of blogging recently. And...i wanted to fully read this wonderful book and contemplate it before writing about it.

I can't express how long i've been holding out for a talented writer to create a novel with a good story line AND incorporate the craft world, and Kathy did JUST that!! I'm so impressed by how fun and easy to read "Waking Up in the Land of Glitter" is. The characters are easy to fall in love with, and I'm sure every crafter could relate to one [or all of them] in some way or another.

This book is a sincere view through the eyes of all the characters as they come to terms with themselves, those around them, and their art work. I love how Kathy Cano-Murillo expressed that the grass aint always greener, which is a harsh concept we all need to learn.

Star, one of the main characters in the book has the parents i always wish i had. They treated her with respect even in her darkest hours. I hope to some day emulate these traits when i have children.

PLUS at the end, Kathy shows you how to create your own love shrine, along with a few other crafty projects!! So fun! :D Weather you're looking for a book to help inspire you, or just something fun to read, i would highly recommend "Waking Up in the Land of Glitter"!
