Book Review: Waking Up in the Land of Glitter by Kathy Cano-Murillo

I love glitter! I love crafting with it. I love wearing it. I love it period!

Waking Up in the Land of Glitter: A Crafty Chica Novel by Kathy Cano-Murillo is like being in a tub of glitter. Pure fun. 


I'm not one to read a book just for fun. I'm not usually a summer book kinda gal. But this was good fun. Sure, there's a good debate about craft versus art, but it's far more a story about a couple of women trying to find their way in life and love. 


If you know Crafty Chica's arts and crafts, the book is the same fun. 


Did I mention that the book is fun? Cause it is. 


In Chicago, we're barely into spring, but it doesn't mean it's too early to grab this summer reading book for your beach bag. Or heck, get it now and pretend it's summer time. Buy your copy at an indie bookstore or Powells.com.

Disclaimer: The only payment I received was the copy of the book.

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show

Book Review: Wolfpack by Abby Wambach

Less than a year ago, Abby Wambach took the stage at Barnard's commencement and gave a speech that shook many, including myself, to the core . Her speech went viral and I made the above image in order to share the highlights of her speech. Earlier this month Abby released the speech in book form. Wolfpack : How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game is short (less than 100 pages) but is much more than just her speech . You get a peek into how the speech came together and why she said everything. And because the book is short and is an expanded speech, it moves quickly. I feel that it moves with the same ferocity that Abby use to move down a soccer field. And you might find yourself cheering as she takes you through the story. Abby has always been one of my favorite players. The way she ran amok on the pitch was exactly the way I felt I played sports. Never caring how you looked and giving it your all. Leaving it all on the field. When she retired from socc
