Oh I love all the photos Karla~~we had such an amazing creative weekend:)
Thrilled I got to spend time with you and Beth!

Relax and go have some fun with your puppy and darling granddaughter!!

That first picture of you is great! You look ten years younger in it. Make a print. It's a keeper.


Suz Reaney

So glad you had a great time and then you won prizes! I love prizes!

The dresses Jenn and Christine are wearing in the last show are so gorgeous. In my dreams! Christine looks like she made hers from bits and bobs of fabric.

I have heard nothing but wonderful things about Kim's events. I hope I can go someday, too, and represent Minnesota!!! Looks like you have Kansas covered.I am going to be out to your neck of the woods at the end of August.My brother live n Shawnee Mission and we are all getting together at his house.

Rest up and enjoy the puppies!


Hi Karla,
Thank you for the pictures of your wonderful trip! I'm
sure Sugarwings and the pups missed you a lot. I love
the pretty, lace top that you are wearing in the first
pics. Glad that you are home safe and sound. : )

Kim Caldwell

I just adore you and your wonderful smile. You make me feel happy, safe and comfy ~ sort of like a warm chocolate cookie. Hmmmm. . .



Karla can a girl get any luckier? And any cuter? These pictures are just darling of you! You have been so busy with the great events, friends, and sales. You are truly a blessed gal. Thank you for your awesome words about my studio. I came over to congratulate you on your win. I am so happy for all three of us.
hugs to you,

Mitzi Curi

Congratulations on being selected by Jo Packham. What an honor. I can't wait till the magazine is published, you are so deserving of recognition for having such a special blog. Thanks for the pictures of all of the beautiful ladies that attended the event in CA. I'm going to go back through and click on all the links so I can connect each gal with her blog. That Kimberly must be a force of nature, to coordinate all of the activities and create such lovely decor. Sigh. Someday I'd love to participate in such an event.


Oh, Karla -- all those smiles say it all!


The California week looks like so much fun! CONGRATS on the studio...I have long wondered why I don't see you and your lovely creative space in the magazine!! Way to go!!
