debi @ life in my studio

Your booth is going to look AMAZING with those murals...they are SO beautiful!!
Get some rest before Sugarwings gets there!

Nancy ~ Fete et Fleur

I can't wait to see the photos from this event. How wonderful you get to go!


Jessica Canham

Karla, your murals turned out beautifully and I can see why they were exhausting. I don't think you're feeling old, just normal like everyone else! lol! Where are the pics of your new hairdo?


Amazing painting! age is just a number which my hubby used to tell me this whenever i complain about my age:)


Kerryanne English

You always make me laugh Karla. I was waiting for a pic of the new hair do - you are such a tease!!
Hugs ~ Kerryanne


I'm glad you dropped the Depends look. Since we're, um, around the same age, I'm in complete agreement with the 50 is the new 30 idea. p.s. murals are gorgeous


Thank you, thank you, thank you for your painted chandelier tutorial. I've had a 12 light chandy like yours sitting in my garage for um, like uh 4 years. I'll be visiting the hardware store this weekend to get some bonding primer!

Maija Lepore

I'm so bummed I had to back out of Jenn's event!! I'm ging to miss being with you girls!

Melissa Burford

We are so on the same thought pattern...if I could paint. Last year, after a show I did, I thought about having a painted backdrop...your's is gorgeous!

Jenn's event sounds so fabulous...too bad it's even further away for me. Don't let Sugarwings get too jealous that you're a Flower Fairy.


What !!! no Karla picture , would love to see your new do . You look great karla , even when you're covered in paint. i wish i had half your energy . you accomplish more in a day than most would get done in a day. dont be so hard on yourself , you've done good girl. (((BIG HUG ))) Donna


I am jealous of your flower find.....

Thanks for the tip on Gretchen's blog! It is beautiful & I will be going to visit her often!

Vicki Chrisman

I'm always amazed at your talented miss karla! beautiful paintings!


Hey,I like meandering. Happy rest of the week.

Karen Young

Karla, The two murals for your booth are also so pretty. I hope you are going to keep them after the sale.
I'm thinking that maybe you have a little flu bug and that's why your so tired.
But, nothing like a new harvest of vintage flowers and a new hair style to help perk one up.

Hugs karen


Everything as always looks perfect and very inspiring!


Karla, You're not old or have heat stroke! You just have been inside too long this winter. It's always like this when we get out and start doing things like gardening, etc after the long winter.
I just love your murals and I got a new do last week end, too. What morale booster!!
I've finally got the wallpapering done and got the roses planted (I didn't do any of the digging) so it feels great to get things done even if we get tired.
Seeing Sugarwings will help you forget how tired you feel!
PS I'm the 28th what day are you? How are the puppies doing we haven't had an update recently.


Oh man I need a napkin ... I'm still drooling over those gorgeous flowers! What a thrill to hit a jackpot like that after hearing that inner whisper to go and seek.


your murals are both beautiful!
I missed your post on painting a chandalier, I'm going back to read it closely, thank you for putting it on a side bar! You have been busy, make sure to take a break, you have wore me out just reading your post lol


you are a busy bee! it's all wonderful!


Zita - Mlle Magpie

Karla, your murals are amazing! I agree with Elyse, you are a Busy Bee!!!


Hey Karla, I tagged you in my blog with a little something to do... go check it out. Your murals are so beautiful!


Karla, your mural is absolutely gorgeous. Great work gal. Hope you had a great day with Sugarwings!!


I'm a flower fairy too! See ya in May. It's a road trip for me since I'm close by.
LOVE the murals--I so understand the slowing down--we just have those days and one of them is today for me.

Lisa Sheets

Oh MY!!!love your things..thanks for the pleasure of allowing us to be apart of it Lisa


My Grandma used to paint and I wish I would have inherited that but I didn't. I can't wait to see it in person!!! We've been cleaning out Bethany's closet so sugarwings is going to have a bunch of clothes for your house! We need a craft day soon so you can see our new car. :)


Your backdrop for your booth is just stunning. Have fun at Jen's event too! It looks like it's gonna be a fun one.

Bunny Rose Cottage

Hi Karla! I so wish I was going to Jen's retreat! It looks and sounds fabulous!

Everything is gorgeous, I love it all as always!


Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

Oh my gosh Karla! those murals are beautiful and huge! And you did them in the heat. 80 degrees in spring feels much hotter than 80 in the summer. Your body isn't used to the heat yet! No wonder you're tired!


Karla, you have so much energy you make ME feel old! Wish I could accomplish half as much as you do. Maybe if I stopped sitting around reading in the back yard because the weather's been so pretty....


Oh, My!

The murals are wonderful---like strolling past a lovely group of shops that beckon you in.

I hope you're over your TIRED now---it's been such a glorious Sunday here, with strolls through the lovely maybe of a garden which promises abundant beauty for a month-from-now, and a ride through the park, and all that wonderful sunshine out there, after the dim drab of Winter.

Your site is so refreshing and uplifting---I've bookmarked you for much enjoyment to come.

Hey Karla I haven't talked to you in a while, so thought I'd comment your post.
You are really being productive with all you have going on for Ms. Frenchies. Very cool background murals you've done. Were these on canvas, so that they will hold up and you can use them over and over again?
Thanks for the link on this post, I've had a couple of ladies that found my blog from yours, so really do appreciate your sweetness in including my giveaway.
I had a little neice over on Saturday for about five hours and her Mom was with her, but nonetheless it was wearing. I just don't think in our late 40's and older was it meant to be chasing around little kids unless we are famous movie stars with nannies to do it for us. It's just a lot of work, so you have to give yourself credit for keeping up with Sugarwings and all of that little ones energies. They are amazing energizer bunnies.
Have a great day and take care of yourself. I hope you're feeeling better soon.
Hugs of wellness being sent your way-


Your canvas backdrop is stunning! I am sure you'll have the best looking booth at the show! Good luck!
