I'm so glad you are feeling a bit better. It must drive you nuts not being able to be productive. I enjoyed all the eye candy and love the paper bride dresses. Look forward to seeing your article



Ooo sorry you've been sick. I've heard of this a lot lately. Think I'll go play with some Purell.
I like the mural that says 'my father's daughter'. What was it for?
The garden shed sale is something I would like to attend and host!!! It looks very inviting...and so does that article you are working on.


I get a little behind in my blogging and look at all that I miss! Your photo album is very inspiring and I love the wedding dresses. They would make a great add on for a wedding shower gift.


Such beautiful photos!!! I hope you feel better quickly!

I am always amazed at people who paint furniture! The time involved just makes me dizzy thinking of it! All my creative ideas need to be accomplished in short spurts, or I'd never get anything done around my house! heehee


I want to move into your garden shed!

p.s. hope you are feeling better soon...

Beautiful stuff Karla! Your shed is so pretty! I hope you are feeling better soon.

I'm sitting here in AWE! Beautiful, beautiful paintings!
Hope you are feeling better soon ~ I have felt something coming on all day and hope it's not a BUG!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Sandy :)


I'm so sorry you were sick...hopefully getting better? I had no idea you were famous too... creative, we already knew!!! Your pictures are gorgeous and your murals are fantastic. You're much better than some "professionals" around here! I love the pet paintings! Take care of yourself!!!


I am so sorry you have been sick. Wondered as I was missing your daily postings. Hope you are 100% again. Could look at your work all day long so the photos of the photos are just fine. Have a happy day - Rachaelxo

Boy, what a tease you are ~ that bathroom looks incredible! Did you get my ecard? How are you feeling now? Do I need to come hide all sharp objects? Hope you are much better.

Love the painted furniture, the shed, the murals, all of it! I especially LOVE all the wedding gowns & how they are each unique!!!

I sure hope you're feeling better soon.

I can't wait to see the romantic style bathrooms article.
Oh My! What a talented artist you are. Your murals and painted furniture pieces are amazing. Really beautiful!

Take care and thanks for sharing your lovely photos.

Karla, you just blow me away every single time I come here! You are so amazingly talented in so many ways... thankyou for sharing your beautiful works!


Love the bath picture. I'm ready to plunge in! The paper doll wedding dresses are wonderful.



I like it when you don't have anything "new" to say!! That fruit obsessed kitchen (or was it dining room?) reminds me of my first ever fake ficus tree. Lol. One year I thought I'd get real "cool!" and hang fake fruit (like every kind possibly recreated in plastic) from it. haha. To add to the ghettorificness, I threw on white Xmas lights too. Just in case you missed all the grapes and strawberrys hanging from the tree... the lights illuminated it.
bwahaha. Can you say "you've come a long way, baby"
FYI, I don't have fake plants anymore. Thank goodness, right?

Karla...this post is AMAZING!!! I love seeing your beautiful work. What an inspiring artist you are Karla!!

p.s. Thank you about the wallpaper... I will send you a goody in the mail as well OK?


I hope you feel back to yourself soon. Good thoughts are coming your way!
I have always loved old dropleaf tables. You made that one even more special with your painted tablecloth.
Best wishes on your article. I know it will be a good one!
Take care.


Wow, that was a great post! Now you have me wondering about your history. sometime you should post about how you came to be here. Did you study art? Intend to do murals or furniture? I find all that so fascinating. Especially after seeing your end results that I love so much!

Karla, I hope you feel better, soon. I'm sure you're not the type of person who has much patience for illness. LOL


Amy Carver

I hope you feel better soon.

I love your paper dolls! Here's my version.



You are so amazing. I wish I could paint that well. Heck I wish I had your energy. I love coming here, you are so talented.


Hi Karla:
I truly hope you are feeling better!!! Find a fly swatter and kill that "bug."
It is always nice to see your work; you are delightful!!!
Peace to you

María Elena

Hope you are feeling better. I have palm trees in my garden and they resisted very well the cold winter that finished. They are beautiful.


Wow, I am speechless, your work is just so fabulous. I know that I recognize some of it from the magazines. Thank you so much for sharing it!! xo, suzy
