Gorgeous!!! You are sooooo funny:) I have been loving your posts with darling Sugarwings and darling Twinkle who thinks she is Sugarwings. Love the wee video of that dear wee girl and her baby and her pram and purse! It was so strange to hear your accent!!! Also the post with the dog in the dress and naked baby doll had me snorting with laughter! Happy travels and happy celebrations. Rachael:)

Have fun on your trip...I know the people receiving your Fairy Bottles will love them, they're so cute!


Natasha Burns

Have a wonderful time away and be sure to take lots of pics of your lovely Aunt! hope the glue dries!!! xo


Gosh, I didn't realize how useful fairies could be! I need a fairy that keeps the cats from tracking litter all over the house: Kitty Litter Flower fairy. ;)
Have a great time with your family!

Karen Young

Karla, love the Fairy Bottles, I'm sure your family will love them.

Have a good time

Hugs Karen

I thought I was the only one that waited until the last minute and had glitter in their bed! Hope you have a wonderful trip!


hee hee hee, those fairy notes are cute:) your jar fairies are adorable Karla...sorry about your ruined manicure, that is why i don't even bother worrying about my nails...watch out for glitter splinters, they hurt!!!


Have a wonderful vacation, Karla! Your family will really be happy to see you coming - bearing all those amazing cards and gifts! I wasn't able to make a card for your aunt, but recently made one for a lady who just turned 105! In one of the photos she showed everyone how she can still touch her toes!
It's really nice and green here since we've had a lot of rain. Hope you get to enjoy some good beach weather and have safe travels.

Those fairy bottles are so darn cute!! I think it's such a good idea to put acorns in the bottles as well, mmm i have to tell my husband that we cannot throw away anything anymore (read he...the other day I couldn't find a bucket of shells...). Have a nice trip Karla! Of course we'll miss you dearly here!


I love your fairy bottles ! I love Sugar Blossom too, seen on Bethany's blog, so cute !


Isn't Glimmer Mist so much fun? Hope you have a great trip!


Hi Karla,
I must say, of all the wonderful times I have missed during various truancy times in blogland, missing a chance to send your Granny a 100th birthday card is the top! I wish her the very best Birthday Graces!!!!
Have a wonderful trip!!!
Stop by when you get back. the week of the 23 of june you may find some fun projects and a recipe (two to be exact) that you may like to try!!! My gift to yoou an all!



One of the reasons I hardly ever get a manicure - now a pedicure - much easier to keep neat!


You are one amazing woman. I love your work. Just love it. Until I got on the computer I was the only Fairy person I knew. Wow, we are everyplace.


Please, please, please tell me-what is the secret to all your energy???
Have a wonderful trip!

Oh I just LOVE your bottles with the little captured cuties!!!!! Your work and your blog is such an inspiration for so many of us!!~

I hope you have a most WoNdErFuL trip and truly enjoy yourself!!!!!!~

Take care.

Lisa Russell

Oh, everything looks so nice! I love the fairy names! Such a cool idea. Have a safe trip and please tell Aunt Caroline that Florida Girls say HAPPY 100th BIRTHDAY to her!!



Why or why do we wait till the last minute to do the "special" things? I guess our minds are so busy with the details of a trip that we keep pushing the creative thoughts back until they finally just pop up and say LISTEN - NOW!
The Fairy Bottles are darling.
Have fun!


The bottle fairies are darling. Not quite as adorable as Sugarwings and Twinkle, but darling just the same.

Hope you enjoy your time away.



Have a wonderful, wonderful time. And, Happy Birthday to Aunt Caroline.

Pam Schroeder

Hope you have a great time! I kick myself for putting things off to the last minute too. I love all your fairies!


Have a grand time, Ms. Karla, and happy day to Aunt Caroline! She has quite a fan club! (I know what you mean about the glitter... don't ask.)

Last night I was able to find the Romantic Country magazine. I was very excited when I found it and the woman stacking the mags said, "You're very happy!" I pointed out your name and she said, "I never knew anyone who was in a magazine before!" This isn't my first Karla piece in print, but delighted to add it! (Plus the rest of the mag is pretty good, too!)

a home far away

What a wonderful blog you have!
I am a swedish woman living in Singapore feel free to visit:-)

Oh how cute you little fairies are, you do such a great job on them. I hope you have a wonderful time on Vacation. Take time out to slow down and relax. And eat a large piece of birthday cake. yummy!!!!!!!


Gumbo Lily

I hope one of your brothers doesn't get "Tootsie Twinkle Tulip Fairy's" note on his fairy bottle.

Cute idea. Have a happy trip!

I love the bottles you made! They came out so cute!!

I'm sorry that you messed up your manicure, but am so glad that you decided NOT to sleep on the glitter! Although, if you did decide to sleep on it, just think how sparkly you would be for your trip! :-)

I hope you have a safe trip, but even more, I hope you have a fabulous visit!!
