Love the idea of the cages, its a clever idea using the cotton real to gather the wires together.
Dorothy Rosebud looks so cute in her wings.

Linda P.

I LOVE your wire cages, Karla! And I love that sweet little angelic Dorothy Rosebud. Have fun in Paradise!!!


Thank you for sharing those books. That fabric flowers one particularly is the one I am eyeing!

Mitzi Curi

All of your creations are just wonderful! The picture of your doggie with the angel wings is so great. I'll bet you could go into business by doing pet portraits with various size angel wings. So many people think their pooches are little angels! I'm not kidding.... and I'd love to win that fabric flower book!

Leslie J

Your blog is such a joy to read!! Thanks so much for being you and enjoy your paradise!!

Dean Designs

Hope you have fun in Paradise!! Next time don't forget to bring me along...lol!

Thank you also for such a wonderful opportunity to win a fabulous prize.

Happy Crafting (when you return of course..lol)

Its beyond beautiful here, we are loving it. And I have had time to craft!

Karla Nathan

She only held still for the photo because she was sure Id give them to her to chew up afterwards!

Mitzi, Amy has some great books, good luck in the draw. Its a good one!


Aloha.....Enjoy each moment!

Karla Nathan

Ive read them both, and the fabric flower book does have lots of great ideas and patterns. The other is filled with lovely historical tidbits about sewing and fabrics.

Karla Nathan


I've bought your mini-dress form and wreaths tutorials and love both of them. So yes, perfect this one and I'll be there to sign up - they look darling!

Hope that you are enjoying paradise!

Love reading your blog and would love the tutorial on the wire cages. They are so beautiful. Keep up the great work!

Karla Nathan

Ah, thanks, Leann! I appreciate you shopping with me!

Karla Nathan


I love them, have always wanted to make one!

Wished I lived closer would love to take the class!


Dorothy is adorable in her little wings!
Beautiful creations Karla ~ I love anything bird inspired ♥
My girlfriend & her hubby are in Hawaii this week too!


The cages are beautiful. And your dog is adorable...

Karla Nathan

She is quite the sweet pup!


I love the idea of a chicken wire cloche! Is it chicken wire? And Dorothy is dear! It's a gloomy cold day here in Michigan -- My mission is to do something creative today!

Karla Nathan

No, it wrapped wire, not chicken wire, Jeanie. I kind of wove it.

Karla Nathan


Oh how pretty! I am a new follower! Love your sweet pup too!

God bless....Brooke
