You find the coolest stuff. I'm going to have to follow you around. And I mean that in a completely non-creepy way.

When we buy our new house in TN next month, I'll need all kinds of decorating help!

But what fun to decorate a new (to me) home!

Stacey Newton

Thanks so much for the great wallpaper images! I love the one of the pretty lady and the Art Deco style penguin... Also, thanks for sharing about your crafting issues. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who messes up and feels like a crappy crafter. But your pieces look great and congrats for pushing through the discouragement:)
Have a great day!

Jessica

You're too funny! I LOL'd when I saw your post title. I guess we all have our "off" days when nothing comes together easily. But, from what I can see, your St. Pat's tags still turned out beautifully.

Miss_k_p

I'd love to get in on your "two tag swap!"
Point me to the details!

Thanks~

Whitney

The bottles are beautiful and the high society woman is stunning!

Angela

Love all your goodies:-). Giggling is better than chocolate, well almost *LOL*.
Have a great weekend!!

phyllis

You two are cracking me up today!
I thought I'd learn about the history of aviation when I came here...but No...I got Jamaican preschool hahha!
And you don't have to make me a tag...I shouldn't have told you about that...

Crystal

What sweet projects ~ some days just don't go great in the crafting :) I just messed up a project :( Good luck on tearing out your carpet - took mine off last month ~ what a job ~ lucky you have help :) Be careful around those picky tack strips ~ I think a hundred of them were used on our stairs :) My toe is just now back right from hitting one !

Your lovely blog is true serendipity! I found it today and can’t help – think I spent couple hours there. What a charming house! You are such a talented decorator! And I would LOVE to get yours "two tag"!

Kelley

Ah a crappy crafter - a girl after my own heart. I'm a messy crafter. Known for getting glitter in all the wrong places! And taking out everything I own and only produce a tiny tag. Isn't it fun to craft with a friend? I wish I could do that more often. Great wallpaper book! Hope I didn't bid against you, lol!

Beth Leintz

Why did you use Photoshop to give me a crooked part and extra chin?

*Somebody* told me once that having a crappy craft day is just another way of suffering for your art!

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

I'm so glad to hear that you are a sometimes a "crappy crafter" too, though I doubt that you really are. Funny picture of Beth!! I love that wallpaper book. What a score! Oh my gosh, it's beautiful!

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

ummm...this is for Beth..I didn't mean you were funny looking with your crooked part and all...just the funny little hat! teehee Beth's a cutie even though she is a little nutty!

Karen Young

Sounds like you and Beth had a fun time. Love the wall paper book.

I can totally relate to your adventures with crafting yesterday. Some days it seems like nothing turns out for some reason, while other days you are completely in the flow of things. We all have those days...I loved your post..so funny! Amy

Mahala

You a crappy crafter? Never.
Once a lady walked into my friends house, my friend has crafty things all over her house, and when the lady walked in, out of her mouth came, "Look at all the crap...I mean crafts!" It was so funny, because she never meant to say that out loud!
So crappy crafter has been a bit of an inside joke for us!

michelle

I must not be a very nice friend, but it makes me feel a bit better to know that not all your crafting days are awesome! YOur end results look really good to me! Sorry the process was hard.

Maureen

Hello! The vintage portrait from the wallpaper book looks reminiscent of the vintage watercolours I just had framed & posted! Almost eerie!

Pam

Your pre-school comment made me laugh out loud. We all know that feeling. You are not alone:)
Thanks for extending the Tag for St. Pats. Every single time I attempt to finish the second one, something gets all my attention and another day bites the dust.
I do have my photos for the Bird House day. Since I am basically a painter I am sharing a birdhouse that I had painted for my second grandchild. Do I post it on my blog or send them to you???
And Beth: Your picture is adorable!
Pam

kecia

you were cracking me up with your crappy little crafter comment! i feel that way when i am PMS'ing. i just should do art at that time! i am irritated and everything pisses me off in my studio! Now, do tell, wherever did you find that fabo wallpaper book? i never seen those around here and i am a tad envious right now!

Now I don't know who's post I chucked over more, yours or Beth's. Either way you two are certainly kindred spirits. I love the nut cup photo. That wallpaper book looks like such a treasure. Maybe you should just scan those designs into your computer and print them instead of taking the book apart. Where do you find these? As far as your projects going "off" a bit, I just finished this lovely shaker card...it took me hours. When I stood back to admire it, I realized the script was upside down buried beneath layers of tape and the shadow box frame. Oh well. Blessings, Karen

Shelley

You and Beth have so much fun together. I love visiting your blogs to see what you've been up to. Definitely kindred spirits there! I can hardly wait for garage and estate sales to hit here with a "bang" because I'm surely going to be more observant of all the cool little goodies and trinket I can find to add to my crafty, artsy endeavors. You are both such and inspiration!

Karla, I think you just made all of us feel better for having a crappy crafting day. LOL It sounds like you had a great day anyway and it sure worked out in the end. That wallpaper book is absolutely phenomenal. I can understand the hesitation to cut it up.

Tara

I love reading what you and Beth have been up to, such delightful things!

Jeanie

Wow -- the wallpaper book is the ultimate fine! Three cheers on that one -- I'm not sure I could cut it up either!

Just so you know, I put my tags in the mail on Friday night -- they probably won't go out till this morning, but you should have them by the fifth, and certainly by the seventh.

Gee, I love coming here! I'm so glad that people ever so much more talented than I get crafter's block, too!

Joy

Oh how I wish I could join you and Beth for an afternoon of crappy crafting! lol

LOVE the wallpaper book - what a steal!

svenja

Wow what a pretty wallpaper book! So beautiful pattern, you are a lucky girl to find that!

María Elena

You and Beth have fun working united!. Beautiful book!

Vicki Chrisman

Are you kidding , I cant even imagine you "crabby". lol Everything is gorgeous! that wallpaper is to die for. Love you ST Pat's tag and that bottle is darling!

Vicki Chrisman

Crappy or Crabby! lol neither one for you! lol

Pat

Gorgeous wallpaper book -- what a find!
Your St Patrick's Day tags came out great! Lucky the person that gets them.
Happy Sunday!

Jen R

Karla, you are so funny~ ! I love crappy crafting, in fact just about every craft I do is crap!;)
