cami @ creating myself

A million visitors....WOW! Congrats! I haven't been to anyone's blog in a while so I've missed all the drama. But I'll throw in my 2 cents...if I pay for a class then I am purchasing knowledge. Knowledge I am free to use however I want. That's why I like tuts so much. I can "copy" & still be legit. I'd never just copy somebody's design or idea that they posted on their blog but if I purchase a class from them then I am free to copy, teach the technique & do whatever I want w/ the knowledge that I purchased.
Anyway, that's my 2 cents & it's probably worth even less. ;)

Mayara looks adorable laying under the table! And I love to see all teh dog toys...looks just like home. ;)


Your baby and puppy are adorable!!
I love your blog and enjoy it every time I visit
Congrats on your million!!!
Thank you and Happy Holidays!!!


Becky H

Kim Hanauer

Hi Karla,
That new grandbaby is just adorable! I`d love to win anything you make!

Kim :0)


The new grandbaby is gorgeous---just like Sugarwings!! I love it that they both have an adorable little puppy to grow up with. Darn, I want you to be my grammy too!! Haha!

Wendy Wirth

Isn't that always the case? Wanting to work on something else when we have so many other pressing things to do.
Those bags look gorgeous.


A million visits? Wow! Well, I'm not surprised! Congratulations, though!

Sugarwings looks just like herself as a baby -- not all kids grow up to be so easily identified! Love the personality/dog observation!



Your new little fairy girl is adorable, makes this grandma want to hold her and smell that sweet smell only new babies have.

WOW, Congratulations on 1,000,000 posts!!!
Well done and well deserved.
I have you on my side bar and will link you today :)

Pinkie DeNIse

Oh I love to see what you've been up to...enjoy those beautiful grandbabies and the holidays Pinkie Denise

Debra Disney-Dior

One million visits. That's a LOT! Just think. What if we all came in and placed a dollar under Aggie Rose's collar? Ummm, I don't think we'd recognize her -- she'd be green and resemble George Washington! You'd probably have to call her Martha. Then again, you'd be a millionaire. If we came bearing hugs. Well, that'd be a million hugs and you'd probably end up looking like a peanut. Squished around the waist. Oh nuts! A million is a LOT! You know what that represents, Karla? A million smiles brought to the million faces that visited. A million friends. I'd say we ALL hit the jackpot! We have you and you have us -- a million strong! A million good wishes...a millions happy thoughts...a millions thanks for ALL you share with us. You're like "our family." We got to see Leand...oooops, Sugarwings grow from a sprite to a fairy. Now we have a NEW baby fairy to love from this side of the screen. We owe YOU! Thanks a MILLION, Karla. You are definitely one in a million. It wouldn't be hard to find your face hidden amongst a million other faces -- forget about Waldo -- it's all about the classy lady who sparkles.

Cheryl Dolby


I love coming to your blog because you treat your grandchildren the way that I always did mine when they were young. The traditions continue with me still, even as they are growing older. There is no wealth that can match the love of family.

Judi Storm

I'm so glad that I found your Blog! I have gotten so many great ideas, and injoy seeing what you and your little fairy are doing. Thank you for sharing. Judi in Wahoo


You and Sugarwings are creating such precious memories with your "new" Holiday traditions. She is so fortunate to have a Grammy that spends so much time with her and is teaching her love and patience (as well as decorating skills). May your Christmas be merry and bright!!!

You were a great surrogate mom to me growing up, a great real mom to your kids, and I'm sure you're a wonderful grammy too. If anyone deserves a million anythings, it's you!

Zita - Mlle Magpie

Congratulations on that amazing milestone, Karla!


Are you kidding me?!!! A million?! You are such a rock star! Lisa


It's me I'm back. I meant to tell you that I knew you'd find something clever to do with those mail bags! Mine are still sitting in a box. I think I really am a hoarder.
Love the pic of Twinkle & Lee Lee too. Gosh they grow up too fast. Lisa


Congratulations on One Million Visitors! What a milestone! I am happy to be among the multitudes!


Congrats on your blogging milestone! Wow! Love to read your blog and look at all the fun and fabulous things you do.


It is fun to hear how the puppy and baby personalities match up. Here's hoping the new set AggieRose and Mayara remain happily mellow together. ;->
