What people are saying…

“Allen, creative director of the crafting website Hello Creative Family, serves up ‘meowgical’ DIY projects in her charming (and pun-filled) debut. In the introduction, Allen explains that her website’s purpose is to inspire parents to get creative with simple crafts and recipes, and traces the book’s recurring motif of ‘caticorns’ back to her childhood unicorn fixation (‘The 10-year-old girl in me is freaking out that I grew up to write a craft book about caticorns… with sparkles’). The crafts include a rainbow letterboard sign crafted from Popsicle sticks, ‘purr-ty’ painted rocks embellished with fanciful ‘caticorns’ and rainbows, a Shrinky Dink charm bracelet, candy-covered popcorn with sprinkles, an upcycled soda bottle transformed into a cute planter, fragrant and sparkly bath bombs, and the Caticorn Paper Lantern. Parents of young children will appreciate Allen’s inventive projects, empowering tone, and simple instructions, as well as the book’s true-to-size design templates and full-page color photos. Her sweet, simple guide offers rainbows, glitter, and cheer for all who read it.” —Publisher’s Weekly
