Beautiful Beautiful Creations! I saw those pearl letters at Michaels and purchased my initials ~ never thought to use them like you've done - very clever!

Have a great day.
Sandy :)


I love your banners. I have a few of the pearl letters myself. I'm still deciding exactly what to do with them. Thanks for the inspiration!


Awwww! Such lovely banners! My SIL is named Joy, she'd love all these!


Its funny cos I am making Xmas Banners also. Love what you did with the dollies dresses:)


Oh just gorgeous Karla!! Who needs to clean and do laundry and boring mundane things when you could be in the studio doing this?!? :)
I had seen those pearl letters in Michael's and was trying to think of something to do with them...I think you found the perfect idea!!


Thirteen days and they'll be there to film? I'd call out the troops to help get a move on the tidying! The Fluffy Flowers studio might be clean if given that many days :)

I really like the banners, and so many different looks! It's always a delight to visit here.
Have a great day~


Karla, where do I begin?? I love the banners. The Peace sign you have hanging on the door (a little cock-eyed) is precious. I think it's my favorite. But I love the antique frame. You know the one you didn't paint. Everything is great!

I love how you are avoiding all the "things to do" so you can play in the studio! I do the same thing, things falling down around me and "tra-la-la isn't this fun?" !! Banners are beautiful and love the doll clothes idea! (I did this with my kids infant clothes i posted pictures in July or Aug!....but now I'm thinking I need some cute little doll clothes to go along with them!


I am going to reiterate what everyone else is saying: I love those banners too!!! I think you're getting even better, if that's possible! I think you said you weren't selling them (yet) because of your tv shoot, but if you do.... I want one!!!! Your doll clothes banners are also wonderful. I am just amazed at how creative you are!!! Don't worry about getting everything done because to me, it looks as though everything is done...you just keep adding and rearranging (which in your house is a constant anyways!!). It all looks GREAT!

I am going to have to head to Michaels for some of those pearl letters! Love them! And the framed doll dresses are just precious!


I just love all of those!!!

Heather ~ Pretty Petals

Love your banners Karla! SO pretty!


How wonderful it must be to go in your studio and just lose yourself. Just let everything "simmer" in the house because it will get done, won't it? I think I need a studio.

The framed doll clothes are so precious...

Karla, Love the frame. I have a soft spot for old frames.The banners are lovely too. How do you find the time?Your glue gun must always be loaded.


Ooh - the pearl letters. I must get to Michaels!!! You very, very clever girl.
And the banners....... oooh...


Love, Love, Love the banners...can't get enough of them!
Would you mind sharing where you found the silver glittered letters?
You are such an inspiration for me. I need to spend less time on the cleaning and more in the studio!


Oh these are all lovely! I'm feeling all Christmas-y now!!


Okay, what local tv show? I want to be sure to watch it! Love the little vintage frame, so cute!


Oh my goodness, I LOVE that NOEL Banner!! So vintage looking!!
