Karla, everything you make and touch is gorgeous ! You should be up there with Rachel Ashwell, and Tracy Porter! Not to mention Jo Packham.
Although, with all your publications, it looks like you're already there !
Well, maybe being big time, would be too stressful, and take all the fun out of it, right ?

You are truly blessed, and Talented, with a capital T !
Those book covers are to die for ! B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L !
Have a good time at Silver Bella, maybe one day, I'll get to go, God-Willing. Can't wait to see the pics, of your adventures !
Take Care,

Karen Young

Great eye candy Karla. I always get so inspired after reading your blog. Have fun at Siver Bella and I am looking so forward to seeing all your pictures when you return. And you must show us some of your sweet little Baby Bella.

Have a Great Time

Hugs Karen


It is all so very lovely and sweet.. I wish you A Wonderful Silver Bella Adventure this year!!!


I hope you have a wonderful time! Please take lots and lots of photos! And btw, the books are gorgeous!

Your blog post 'Treasures from Aunt Caroline' still haunts my odd moments when not remembering drs appts, physical therapy dates, when and how much meds, etc. [as a result to DHs mini-stroke/fractured hip joint/vertobroplasy].
It warms my heart


Karla, it's a good thing you will have helpers with you to set up your table...everything looks so pretty!!! the book you made for Hope is gorgeous!!!


I'm looking forward to hearing all about Silver Bella when you return. Your books are gorgeous - and I know Hope will love hers.



I find that if I'm anxious (and should be doing other things), that creating is a good outlet! Love the books.


Gimme some stuff!!! Pick me, pick me!!! I am hoping that you will be too busy post-Bella to reprimand me for my greedy bad manners. Again. Ahem. Oh, heck, PLEASE! Seriously, I love all the journals that you make. I have been trying to start a journal for at least 5 years, but then realize that I am either #1 complaining about stuff or #2 writing things that I don't want anyone, ever, to read (like they would be that fascinated, right?). So I admire those who do that, or who, like you, have a blog. And as always, thank you for sharing your little corner of the world! Your Friend, Bobbi


Always so pretty Karla! Hope you have a blast!


Wish I could be there with you...but have a GREAT time for me!
love, a


What a lovely thank you gift, Karla. I'm sure Hope will treasure it. I can't wait to see what you bring back from Silver Bella. Please take lots of pictures for those of us who have to live vicariously through you!

i hope that silver bella goes by nice 'n slow for you but i can't wait to read everyone's accounts afterward. enjoy!!!


Alice W.

Oh my goodness Karla those journals are the most beautiful things ever! I love them and your creativity... ;)

Linda Lilly Cottage

Hi Karla,
Such pretty books and love the pendant!! I'm sure you

Getting side tracked can be lots of fun. Have an awesome time at S. Bella.


have a wonderful time! I am always SO inspired by your blog! :D deb from Maine...:D


I just adore your scrapbooks...so inspiring...I have little snippets of your pics in my little "ideas" scrapbook that I carry with me whilst out shopping for supplies. Keep up the great work with your glue pot...love reading your blog. Have a great time at Bella and get those pics up asap!!

Karla, you never cease to amaze me with everything you do. I just don't know how you do so much and it's all so wonderful. I'm glad you found the time to make those books - they're gorgeous!


The book for Hope is pretty! It is so sweet that you always customize your gifts to make them that little bit extra special for the recipient.

The extra special thing about the journals is how they are mismatched. Each unique and lovely for their eccentricities like a person who has been busy living life.

Hope the extra vendor goods made you crazy happy, because there can never be too much happy. ;->
