Here are some lines told by Karina Garcia on an interview about “Karina Garcia slime recipe when asked about her madness over the slime.

I started my YouTube channel in 2012 but became more serious about making videos in 2015. At first, I started off making DIY videos and then began to experiment with slime. My first slime video was inspired by a Pinterest recipe and I put a fun twist to it. The response was so wonderful that it motivated to make more fun, over-the-top videos. I recognized that slime was a hit after the first video. 

I always wanted to make a product of my own. I continuously discussed this dream with friends and family years ago. Whether it was slime, a DIY kit, or a toy, my dream from the beginning was always having a hands-on product. So, when the opportunity came, the first thing that came to mind was slime because it had become such a huge part of my life. Now Craft City has become a slime and crafting empire. We offer a ton of different products for kids to be inspired and make their own creations.”
