"Caticorn Crafts is a fun, magical book chock full of creativity and sparkle! Kids and parents alike will have a blast creating these adorable, easy-to-make projects, many of which are perfect for gifting. Crystal Allen has been delighting her audience for years with amazing crafting ideas on her blog, Hello Creative Family, and now she shares her love of unicorn cats in this memorable first printed book. I cannot wait to see what creativity she shares with us next!" —Lisa Pedersen, editor of MomResource.ca
"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
“Allen made a name for herself as the force behind Hello Creative Family, a website that specializes in quick and easy crafts and recipes designed to ignite creativity for all ages. Caticorn Crafts collects many of the crafts that feature many iterations of the "meow-gical" cat–unicorn hybrid. Each craft is suitable for a beginner, and most include "Pro Crafter Tips," optional additional steps for more experienced or ambitious creators. She makes the projects easy by providing templates for flowers and caticorn faces, or by using materials with built-in flair, such as sparkly paper. This is especially handy for folks looking for trendy projects like flair pins (which use Shrinky Dinks!) or bath bombs. The fabric projects are all nosew—an impressive way to make a pillow, a sleep mask, or a caticorn costume. There is plenty of inspiration here for those planning a craft night or a themed party, and all of the projects have a style adjacent to the Japanese kawaii aesthetic. Patrons will find the positivity and cuteness of the caticorn difficult to resist.” —Susan Maguire, Booklist
