I already bought your precious Grumpy Fairy book, so I don't need to be in the running for that, but please do count me in on your Alice Tag Swap. What fun!!

Congratulations on your 3 year mark...can't wait to sign up for the tag swap - had fun making the puppy tags last year! And, hope that the deed was successful and that you will have little dorkies soon! I am waiting for our younger yorkie to "be ready" because we have a little gentleman who wants a date! :)


We too have been waiting on the release of Alice in Wonderland since the first notices that it was in the making...though we are much more likely to have Mad Hatters than Alice's in attendance.

Your little Sugar Wings Alice is as precious as always...and I can't wait to see your tag creations!

Hooray for you for 3 years of blogging, thank you for enlarging my vision of what can "be".

3 years of blogging? Has one year passed since the puppy tag swap? Time surely flies! Sugarwings is supercute as Alice (is there anything that doesn't suit her? NO!) I'm so looking forward to the new Alice in Wonderland too, I believe it will be in 3d as well I just cannot wait, like you said the previews are tdf! A tag swap sounds like music in my ears!
Oeps, almost forgot to congratulate you AND to thank you, as I always enjoyed my visits here very much!

Lucky for me was the day I found Karla's Cottage


More puppies! Oh what fun, last years photos were terrific! Congrats on your 3 years, I've loved getting to know you and your love of life. And of course, please throw my hat into the ring for another copy of the Grumpy Fairy - I love the copy that I bought and would love to give one to my girlfriend - she just became a Grammy this past year!

Charmaine Deadman

I have a vintage Alice book as well. I was thinking about using it for the pictures to frame and put up on my daughter's bedroom walls... it would seem a shame to cut it up though. I'm still waiting on that one. Maybe if I was as talented as you I would know what to do with it!


I think the Alice tag swap sounds like fun! :)


Congratulations on 3 years!!! Your Grumpy Fairy book is a great magical way to celebrate.

And the Alice swap to also celebrate here and the upcoming Disney movie is fun, too. Will Sugarwings be going to the movie with you? Look forward to hearing all about it and how the swap goes!

Karen Young

I was just looking at my puppy love tags the other day.....wow....Twinks and Teddie decided to expand their family! So exciting!
Sugarwings looks so adorable in that little dress....she is just so photogenic!
Congrats on 3 years and 700 posts! What a diary you have to look back on! I might have to go back to the beginning and start reading!


Congrats on 3 yrs and your blog is just a delight for me! I would love to win your sweet book! I better pass on your swap, as my daughter is graduating HS in May. But, I think it is a great theme!


My friend, Suz Reaney gave me your blog address to see if I wanted to do the tag swap. I'm glad she did-your blog is so fun!! I would love to participate in your swap.
Thanks, Lynn

Wow, your life is never dull! Sugarwings and her dad moving out (bittersweet), puppies on the way (joyful for sure), a tag swap and 3 years of blogging. I've been a reader for about half of that time, and have enjoyed each and every post! May you have many more years of blogging (as long as it's fun, right? Not meant as a life sentence, LOL). Please enter me into your delightful giveaway. Hugs, Cathy

Karla, How adorable is Sugarwings??????
Twinkles and her family also are so cute. I remember last year after Christmas when Twinkles had her puppies.
Got over 50 inches of snow in the last week here in Pa. Two huge snowfalls a couple of days apart.
