Your ornaments are beautiful Karla! And the Christmas card too. I'm almost moved into my new home for Christmas and I'm saving the "Grumpy Fairy" to read to my Grandaughter after all the relatives are gone and we can be quiet and read. She loves reading! Have a happy holiday! Pearl


I want to come and live in your putz house. :) If Bethany sees that zhu zhu pet tomorrow she will not want to leave it alone!!!! Off to make our goodies, hope everyone will be hungry this preggo lady has been cooking! :)

Wow! What talent! I love the kitty and the puppies running around the snowman. The glittery house...awesome!
I am envious of the artistic talent that so many of the bloggers possess. I am painting my bathroom walls...that's the only painting that I can do!!! LOL
check out my blog to see my progress. I'm a brand new blogger and welcome anyone to my blog. I am inspired to do new things by you lovely ladies!

I love the ornaments, Karla! I especially love the one with the house on it. I still have an iris ornament that you gave me one year. Ok, who is Pixie Pie? I know I'm out of the loop but do you have two granddaughters now?


oh my word, your ornaments are just divine! Your lucky family! :o)

Just been catching up, and I LOVE your Christmas decorations, so much so, that I'm already making note to self to get a silver tinsel tree. It looks gorgeous. I have a pink tinsel tree in the bedroom, but it's one of those spiral ones that packs flat. It's fine and I really like it, but you simply can't put anything on it. Lights have to be tied in place and it's so hard to get them spaced out nicely. I think a silver tinsel one might be a good alternative!

Enjoy what's left of the build up to Christmas. xx


you ARE one busy elf, Karla. The putz house ornament is gorgeous. Merry Christmas!


Oh! it will be so nice to have hubby home more often!
But what a crazy time to move, huh? :-)
I am always amazed at what you accomplish, where do you get your energy?
Love-Love-Love those ornaments! What thoughtful gifts..from a thoughtful person!
Merry Christmas!


I envy you your amazing talent! How special each ornament is and I hope the recipients appreciate the love put into them! Your home is lovely! Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas!

Karla, you are so amazing! I LOVE ALL the things you painted, how precious! I think it is wonderful that you paint a card for your husband! I bet you will be so glad to have him home more :)
I hope you all have a beautiful holiday!


I really adore your drawing and paintings. These ornaments and t-shirt are beautiful!

I don't know if you remeber that I'm a card maker. I would love it if you would consider making some of you whimsical drawings into digital stamps and maybe offer them in shoppe or etsy store. There are several compaines/individuals out there that do that and none of the images are as whimsical and pretty! I cannont draw but I adore painting fun images and stamps!

It sure is busy at your house! Here you just got everything decorated and pretty and you have unloading to do. Well, your ornaments and such you painted are simply beautiful!


GASP! Your personalized ornaments are precious. I can imagine your loved ones opening them up year after year, many years down the road and loving YOU more each time they remember what a lovely gift you are to them. {the little house one calles out to me. Love it.}


All your hand painted Christmas stuff is exquisite! My favorite is the ornament with the little doggies!


That paper with rainbow sparkle bursts in the background of the first picture is so fun! It looks like sheet music if fairies, especially with the little riding sprite in front. ;->

Eep, that was an unexpected move-in. Hope it settles down quickly so you again feel fanciful and free in your own home.

Those tee shirts and bulbs are darling for the cousins! You well captured their impish energy. So is the ornament going to Joan? Good luck with the rest of the holiday events, and hope they are fun for you, too!

Karla you have such a wonderful talent and it sure shows in the ornaments, shirts, etc. that you show above. My favorite was the little house ornament as I too have a passion for the little putz houses. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and look forward to reading your blog in the coming year. It is always a very happy place to spend some time.
