Oh how I enjoyed your blog...what an adventure in Palm Springs, and your lil Sugarwings is ssooo adorable, and you dumpster dive too? I am also a trailer trash gal from my teens, when my parents split...go figure. Lady, you sure are busy! So much for getting more work done...I got lost @ Karlsa Cottage :0) (I like to be lost sometimes...Super Bowls on, I can only handle sooo much, although it's only about 20 minutes from my house, you'd think I'd be more excited about it!)

Spreadin' the love :0)

I love your Bluebird of Happiness!! And I hope you feel better soon! I can't believe all those books that you and Beth put together... I am soooo impressed! I also love your wallpaper books.

The books turned out beautiful! What a production you must have had going on! Like the idea of the wallpaper journals! I just read Sommerset Life today and saw that you were mentioned with your wonderful kits that you put together!

Beautiful little books! Maybe I can get myself to actually cut into some of my wallpaper (which up until now i have just been collecting!).



Yes I love it when all of the elements come together...WAIT...that has never happened here LOL :)
I want to thank you both for your hard work and I can't wait to get my book!!!
