About the Author

Kara Laughlin spent much of her childhood making journals and filling them up with backward handwriting (because she heard that was how Leonardo DaVinci did it), so it only makes sense that she'd grow up to write about art, craft, and the people who make it. She has sold her hand-embroidered jewelry, art, and gifts for nearly ten years. She has written for The Crafts Report, CraftsBusiness, and FiberArts magazines, and her books, Beautiful Bags for the Crafty Fashionista and Hip Hair Accessories for the Crafty Fashionista were published by Capstone in 2012.

Jennifer Phillips has been a writer for thirty years, starting out as a newspaper reporter in the Midwest. Her writing has given her a chance to try many fun and interesting things. She tackled crime stories and hung out in police labs long before shows like CSI were around. She’s ridden in helicopters, watched surgeries and traveled to 10 countries so far, always on the quest to find a new story. For young readers, she has independently published three other biographies, previously wrote two paper crafting books for Capstone and has sold her work to children’s publications as well. Jennifer lives in the Seattle area with her husband, two daughters, one cockatiel bird and a Betta fish rescued from a science class ecosystem experiment.
