Diane ( Crafty Passions)

Everything you make is soooooooooo pretty !!
I love your little orange chicks too !!


Well Gals.... This is my first swap. I must say, I started my Alice Tags last night and they will be finished tonight! I'm having a BLAST!!!!!

Thanks Karla.... I'm now hooked on Alice. I'm going to make a tag book myself. Anything goes in Wonderland! That makes it soooo very easy to create.

Later Ladies ;0)

Jessica at Kids Napping? I'm Scrapping!

So, so many pretty things to see. I love your Alice tags! I'm feverishly working on mine. :)

Suz Reaney

Oh, I would love to! I got your wonderful Scrabble package in the mail (my husband brought it upstairs right away and told me I got a package in a Scrabble box). I was just thrilled with the flowers. You are so generous, Karla...in so many ways.

I picked up a little something for you and will put it in the mail in the next few days. It probably won't be packed as cleverly as your package but comes with a lot of thanks.

I am really enjoying this swap, too. Really delightful. And I am reading "Alice" for the first time!


Everything is so soft and pretty - off to check out your shop!

Brenda Kula

You don't hear the word "gaudy" used like that much anymore. I recall hearing it a lot years ago. Such and such or so and so is too "gaudied" up. Your pretties sure are pretty, Karla. And if you get to missing red, just make a stop at my place!

Bunny Rose Cottage

WOW Karla!!!! You have been so busy! I love those tags!! I am getting so excited for the movie to come out :) Everything you create is always so pretty I am bummed that I missed out on those darling glittery figures you had in your shop! They would have been so cute for the Easter things I have been making :)

Miss Rhea

The tags are adorable !!! I pulled out my vintage Disney Alice in wonderland book and rubber Alice Bunny to send you a picture from my childhood toys. :) Maybe tomorrow I will get off my duff and take the picture to send to you :) Watch your email :) Hugs :) :)


I had to read twice . . . "gaudy" / Karla "gaudy" / Karla . . . never thought I'd see that word describe your creations.

Your tags are GREAT ! ! !



the Alice tags are wonderful! I love the addition of that vintage red label! So cute!

Susan Freeman

You are always cheerful, snow or not. It's what keeps us coming back to visit you. You just put a smile on our faces. I love your altered journals. What fun!

Susan and Bentley

Mary Green

I remember that Alice book, with the scary Cheshire Cat eyes! It's great to see it again!


I love that you painted your own Alice, you are so creative! It looks like a fun swap, I already joined an easter swap and don't want to overwhelm myself but I will enjoy from my computer (with morning coffee in hand!)
hugs! karen....
Ps...I would love to be entered in the giveaway!

Your creations don't look gaudy to me, they look wonderful! And those "little orange guys" bring back such good memories. My mom would let me pick out a birdie from all of the different colored chenille chicks attached to a piece of cardboard at our Five and Dime. I always picked a blue or purple one. Once picked over, the yellow ones were usually left behind....you just can't talk little girls into liking yellow!

Deanna Huggard

I love your blog Karla and visit you almost every day. You always manage to inspire me and make me smile. Thank you. I love your alice tags and book. SOOOOOOO Sweet!!

Blessings and Hugs Too, Deanna

I love the tags that you've made! I am doing all kind of stuff but haven't finished one tag yet, :-} why oh why do I always have to wait till the very last moment? While you are thinking about that question I just want to tell you that I loved loved loved the Vivian fairy you did for Jenn and of course for Vivian's birthday. It is quite a compliment when even a 3 years old reckognizes herself in the fairy!


Oh, I can't wait to see them all done up! I can not believe you did all of those covers! And the bottles are just too cute!

Paula Kay

love the altered "Alice" books. especially the 'drink me" bottles that you whipped up. is there no end to you expanding our creativity by sharing yours?? thanks:)


Karla, I've finally worked my way through projects and now tomorrow mid-afternoon is slated for making my Alice tags! I was already so looking forward to doing them and now I'm even more inspired! I wonder if I'll be able to get to sleep...


Hi Karla,
I just wanted to stop in and say a quick Hi. I love all of your altered books, beautiful. And the pictures of Sugar Wings in the posts before are so precious. Wishing you a beautiful rest of the week.


just love your tags and tagbook and the altered book is lovely. I really got inspired! Thanks for sharing!


Good Morning!

Well it's snowing to beat the band...I guess they weren't kidding. I finished my tags, just need to photograph them for flicker and send them on their merry way. Did I thank you hosting this fun event? I'm just so excited and seeing everything that you've done just kicks me into overdrive! The altered journal idea for passwords etc. is fab.

Have a great day!


Congratulations for being ahead of the deadline for the Alice tags & covers! They look darling, and I'm sure they will be a treat for everyone who receives one.

Hope you are traveling safely in the snow when you make the run to the grocery store to ship the packages. And thank you for brightening our winters with the bright colors of your blog, too. ;->


Hi Karla,
Your Blog always brightens my day!! I really love
the Alice Tag with the tiny door and the tiny bottle
and key. Just adorable!!!! Ohhhhh I wish that
I could participate in this swap.



Just (finally) bought Somerset Life last night and was delighted to see your journal! Hooray! And the alice book is great!


Hummmmm...... Mad Hatter Chicks? I seem to be on Alice overload! Is that a bad thing? ;)


Your altered books are to die for! I went straight over to your shop but they were all sold!!!! I was too late.

Gorgeous work Karla.

Your Alice tags and covers are adorable - I can't wait to get mine. My tags are now finished and I will package them up this weekend and post to you on Monday.
