Oh Fun! I love what you said, "I am a machine". Too Funny!!! Love the little glitter boxes with ribbon.


Karla, wow what a whirlwind of creativity. I don't blame you designing Spring, it is supposed to snow again tomorrow. Yikes. I just stopped by your lovely Etsy and bought the two glittery doves. I will definitely stop by on Monday to see your birdhouse tutorial. I have been doing miniature paintings of birdhouses lately, sigh...anticipating spring. Blessings, Karen


You made me laugh! This day does just get better and better! I finished my St. Patrick's Day tags today and will get them in the mail ASAP. As for me , I live for Survivor and American Idol. My family thinks I'm nuts!


Karla, that sounds like a perfect day...and you sold like hot~cakes:)...good for you!!! i love all of your different nesting ideas, cute!!!

Gabriela Delworth


I really love your work...very spring inspired... for a moment I forgot the snow and cold we have here in Toronto!

Warm regards,



So glad that you enjoy the goodies I sent! Yes...buttery vanilla it is! I love all of your new offerings also! Angie

Love that blue bird in the floral wreath- you know, if you had that bird on a swivel, that could be a wreath AND a hat. Bird up = Hat, Bird down = wreath.


I was at Etsy today and admired one of your wallpaper packets but I didn't realize it was yours! ...I love it when I get work done like a machine =) ...And I kinda like your word "splatty" too!! Blessings... Polly


Karla, your beautiful pictures are always a breath of spring air! xo, suzy

Oh LOVE that bowl! Your painting is so beautiful.....you WERE a machine for sure today! I sat firmly on my butt at work and clunked away on a computer (but not fun blog stuff!) can't wait to hear what you have up your sleeve with Fifi! Have a nice weekend home with your husband!


Your creations are so pretty and makes me think spring! Thanks for sharing and sparking creativity in me :)

The bird with crown is funny! I loved. At the place that you live there are so much snow, here we have drought.


I love American Idol too, Karla! I'm looking forward to the bird house tutorial on Monday. I just love all your pretty creations.


The bird houses are so cute! I almost missed Idol tonight. My daughter thinks I'm silly for watching.

Karen Young

You had a very creative day, beautiful creations. I cant' believe you almost forgot Lost. Looking forward to the tutorial on Monday.



I'm looking forward to your birdhouse tutorial and I love the nests you've been putting together. My theory is that fairies are the guardians of the nests and keep watch over the eggs while the parents are gone looking for food. I have no explanation as to why your bluebird had robin's eggs! Freak of nature? LOL!

Wow, you were super busy.. I love that bowl you painted. I hope sugarwings is feeling better today. Take a rest tonight!

Your work is so beautiful.....


Oh, Karla! What terrific little creations! I'm ready to hear SPRING HAS SPRUNG!

Congrats on your OWOH win! I just received one of my 4 wins today; some beautifully done tags and cards! I love receiving gifts in the mail!

Hugs, KJ


You have been really busy getting your goodies on etsy, I did that a few weeks ago but then I got the flu and just got my new items listed on etsy. I hope you sell all your wonderful things.

Love the birdies Karla! And those painted ones on the light fitting are gorgeous!!! You got so much done.
LOL firm and butt aren't ever in the same sentence here either!


Wow what a productive day for you. Love all your pretties. It really likes like spring has sprung at your house not if it would only happen outside.


Wow, you were very busy yesterday, like a springtime bird building her nest…

All of the items are delightful and gives me feeling of spring in spite of the snow that is falling outside of my window now..



Oh my goodness! All these pretties! Love them all! Especially the little peat pot pretties! Hope I don't forget to check in with you on Monday for the tutorial.


I stopped back Karla, to tell you that I mentioned your lovely birdhouse challenge on my post today and added your logo on my sidebar. We can all use a little Spring right now. As I browsed through your post again, I was filled with the thrill of Spring. I will stop back on Monday for your tutorial. Have a lovely weekend. Karen


Awesome work! I seriously need a crafty day like that! Your art is so inspiring. Although I don't comment that often, I check your blog regularly and you are just so talented!!



I like how "firm" and "bottom" are never in the same sentence! Hee-hee!
You have been awfully busy and creative--how nice for you! Enjoy the snow. We are snowbound, too, for the first time this winter!


I'm out and about today visiting in blogland. Wow, what lovely creations. I feel spring in the air. I love the delicate little spring tea cup. I think spring has arrived!

kari & kijsak

Oooh...you took the chill out of the winter air with all this spring wonderfulness! Thank you so much for your sweet birthday comments...and helping make this fourtieth one to remember!

Have a blessed day!

Oh goodie! I got to that wreath before someone else did.


Thanks for sharing all the bright and colorful sparkly and flowery goodness!


You've been so busy and everything is pretty! I've been so sick... nothing is getting done here and my poor husband has a birthday tomorrow... HOpe you have a great weekend!!

I want your energy! You really are inspiring to me today. Everything that you made is so sweet and just screams springtime. Susan


Oh, I love a good creative day!..when everything just seems to flow. All of your creations are sooo pretty! Would love to be signed up for the St. Patty's swap. :)

michelle fitzgerald

Wow! that was a great jam-packed entry! Such pretty things! I want to make eggs now! Love it all!




I adore the bird wreath! So cute! What a productive and lovely day you had! I love creative days like that!

Irma's Rose Cottage

Loved all of your goodies. Will check you out on Monday for your birdhouse tutorial.


I'll be back for the tutorial on Monday! Love all the wonderful Etsy pretties.


I LOVE the bird with crown and the necklace of bling!

Sharon at American Harvest

Hi Karla,
You just gotta love all of those bright Spring colors. I cannot wait for Spring either, however my Winter is nothing compared to your winter. The bird with the crown and necklace....amazing, what more could a girl ask for? LOVE IT!!!


It's all so bright and cheery! I love it all, esp. the peat pots and birdhouse blings. I'll be back for the tutorial!


lovely creations. love your blog. have added it to my faves. if you get a chance..stop by for a visit. ~Tina

Sherry Goodloe

Love the roses on sheet music that you created!

Paula Kay

I always enjoy the stories & photos on your blog; particularly the birdhouse instructional blog recently. I was wondering if you have ever done "altered books" & if so, at some point in the future would you consider giving some of us "craft challenged" but eager folks some tips??? thanks, I tune in daily to see what's new in KS (it's better than TV)
