I knew that was Maija the moment I saw the picture. I have never met her but she's one artist that I do hope to meet one day. She seems to have such a lovely soul and is loved by so many. I saw her book on her Blog that Jessi organized and I know the pages must be incredible. This page you created is beautiful!

November will be here quick! Can't wait to see you!

YAY for tutorials! I love Halloween so I am in!!



Your friend Majia is going to LOVE her gift - how thoughtful! I would be over the moon to receive something like that.
Button and Agnes Rosebud are too cute! I don't think I would have gotten any crafting done if I were there because I'd be too busy rolling on the floor kissing their little faces.
Please enter me into your giveaway. All your stuff is fabulous - I'd be thrilled to win.


Karla, how exciting that you and Beth are teaching tutorials! Love both of you girls and am looking forward to seeing more of your joint creations.


You always surprise me with your projects. I so enjoy seeing all your creations. I've almost got my room together, I will finally finish painting today!!!! I've got to get busy and ceate something!!
I just love to see Button and Rosebud together. They are so adorable.


your friend is going to love your gift..we all should have a pic of ourselves as a siren...have fun..

My Blessed Serendipity Life

I don't decorate all orange and black for halloween. These "gothic ghosts" sound interesting.



Can't wait to see the details of the class!
The mermaid painting is adorable!...she must have been thrilled to receive her book!


Maija is going to love that! I knew who it was without even reading her name, it looks just like her! I love the spooky halloween stuff Beth has made (moody..not spooky!)
I can't wait to see what you make! hugs!karen...


What a special gift for your friend! Can't wait for the online tutorials to begin!! I've been working on my Oz tags....so much fun!! =)


Oh, what a neat thing to do for a 50th! The mermaid is super fun!


Finally! A Halloween that doesn't include orange! I'll be very, very interested in what you come up with! Please make the tutorials with materials that we all can find!


I could get into dark and mysterious,
Happy Birthday to your friend Majia.
I look forward to seeing your class creations!!

PS wash your mouth out with soap for mentioning November.....
We haven't even been to the beach once this year.


Oh can't wait for the details on the tutorial! I love the fall and all things supernatural - ohh spooky!



Cannot wait to see what is in your head for the tutorials. Love the page you did for Majia......one lucky birthday girl. Enter me in your August giveaway!


LOVE the burlap bag with the photo transfer. Can't wait to see your class offerings.


Fun to see the dorkies having such a good time! The tutorials sound like fun!

Karla, how cool to do the victorian lady thing for halloween. I am so over orange and black! I love the Yorkie pictures and your "sewing machine" description. Have a great evening, Gretchen

Wanda @ Just Vintage

Oh, I can't wait to see the tutorial on these. I love 'em! And the picture with all the lace in the background makes it very enticing.

Hehe. They sounded like a sewing machine. That's so funny!


Beautifully creative! And just so ya know....I WANT TO WIN :)

Freda Butler

I am excited about the tutorials. You are both so talented.

Will be watching for them.



Leanne Shawler


And *finally* Halloween that doesn't involve ORANGE! Can't wait to see what you guys have cooked up!


Oh Karla I can't wait to see the info on the tutorials. You make the cutest things. I'd love to enter your giveaway. =)

Debra Ganas

I knew that it was Maija too. You are amazing Karla.



Hi Karla,
Just love the Pictures. Can't wait for the tutorials. Crossing my fingers and can't wait to meet you.Hard to believe it's almost september better get cracking on my swaps.


Love the puppies! So cute.



Everytime I hear you & Beth are 'crafting today' it's like a knife in my heart. LOL When oh when will the post read 'Lisa, Beth & I crafted today,'? I have a little dog named Izzy, does that help? She might even let Sugarwings dress her up. Maybe. If I sedate her first.
Can't wait for the tutorial. And Majia will love her portrait. She seems like such a nice person. Lisa

Lesley UK

I'm so pleased to know you will be doing tutorials. I love the mermaid card. Blessings

Paula Clare

Hi Karla,
Love Wuthering Heights and the moody, brooding, idea for Halloween! A VERY WELCOMED change from the typical orange/black decor! Can't wait to see your projects! Please enter me for this month's giveaway! WOOT!

denise hahn

love your halloween theme idea... moody and dark. I would love one of your projects!

Suz Reaney

I just love Miss Maija holding court.I'll bet she will, too!
I thought you were going to give away a Dorkie!!!
Really...they were right under the giveaways (but I know you would never give away AR or Button!


the pups are so sweet! I just love them!
The mermaid is wonderful! What a treasure for her!
Cool idea on the online class! I don't usually do much for Halloween now that all my kids are grown. I figure it's too much work just for me!


The mermaid is just wonderful.
Can't wait to see what you are doing for the online tutorials.
Oh my...are those puppies adorable!


Laraine Atherton

I look forward to your tutorials. The puppies and the photo's of sugarwings birthday party look great. I gave all my shih-tzu's the puppy cut so they will be cool untill the fall. They are all running around crazy and acting silly like your little dorkies. They are the joy of my life.

Heather S

It's so so lovely! And you can never go wrong with Mermaids!


So sweet dorkie doggie date..love it! What a wonderful gift for your friend~ I would love to be entered into your give-a-way~
I look forward to hearing more....

Kay, Oklahoma City

Thanks for the giveaway - you've always got great stuff going on here! Love it!


I'm so excited about the tutorials! I love your work!

Michele Askeroth

Yes, whatever the giveaway is plese include my name as well.

julie haymaker thompson

Perfect !!!So much to coment on ,so I pick the Majia mermaid it looks just like her!!! Super


I stumbled upon your blog and can tell that this will be one I stop at frequently! You've got that creative style that I love and I think that ORANGE AND BLACK color combos should be illegalized. I think it's nearly impossible to make them look cute together... if anyone can it's you for sure! Count me in for the drawing, I would love to be entered


I love the samples you've shared.
