I LOVE all of your mermaid/treasures of the sea items. -So fun!


Oh, I love Julie Haymaker's art - I own about 3 of her pieces. Would love to take a class with her someday. Sounds like it was a great time in CA. Thanks for sharing all of your pictures and adventures.

You certainly came home w/ a sea of treasures!

You should make your own paper clay...it's even cheaper than wholesale! ;o) I've used this recipe in the past & had great success w/ it. http://ultimatepapermache.com/cheap-art/easy-paper-mache-clay-recipe


Your post about clique-ishness set my mind thinking about it for the rest of the day.
Discussed it with hubby, even.
I've come to the conclusion that it is very hard to give
a definite boundary.
I would guess that mainly it has to do with whether or not some one is excluded . . .?

Now I do know FOR CERTAIN the The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is a very good read.
I've finished The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
and The Girl Who Played With Fire
and have just begun The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest

I'm sad to think that there will be no more to this story because of Stieg Larsson's passing.

As usual your post have given me eye candy and pause for thought.

Hugs & ♥♥♥s,

I can't stop thinking about the Silver Bella post, Karla. I have read the letters twice and still have mixed feelings.I love Silver Bella so much. I am so grateful that you invited me to Glitter Lounge. As a Freshman I was aware there were parties and I didn't think I would be invited. I vowed to do an open house for freshman but I have such limited energy with my disability that I don't think I can.

You make some wonderful things! I am dazzled! You also got a great swap and prizes. It looks like a fantastic event.

Kat and I are having a give-away on our blog when we hit 100 followers. We are now at 98. Come and sign up, if you wish. We are going to keep it going for three days after we hit 100. The give-away is a personalized surprise box.

Thanks for being the nice person you are.

Such wonderful mermaidy things......the collage is great! Hope you are still enjoying some mermaid weather in your part of the country!


I just love your cute mermaids! You could totally sell these on Etsy because they are pretty I say!!
I can't seem to get an answer from anyone on where I can find info on how to do paper mache/clay figures. I really like a lot of the Christmas snowmen I see out there and would like to give it a shot. Any recommendations?

i've always heard about paperclay but have never played with it -nor do i know if i can even get it here, lol!
love what you made with your clay!!


I've enjoyed all your projects of late. I didn't comment on your previous post because I'm not really familiar with the reality of the workshops.

I'm celebrating my one-year blog anniversary with a giveaway. Stop by and put your name in the "pot!.

More mermaid goodness, thanks for sharing the beauty of your art and the links.


It's all so gorgeous Karla! Love the album.....it's so fun to see everyone's interpretations. That's why I loved going to all the tables and see what everyone was doing.

You had some great classes and won some nice things. Sounds like you all had a great time. I love mermaids and am ready to start an underwater theme wallhanging and you can bet there will be one on there.




What a heavenly display of beautiful mermaid art! I adore each and every one of them!!


Stopped by for some inspiration! You are always so full of surprises!

Happy Day!
