Karla ~
Those are just amazing!! I am cracking
up at you talking about keeping it
all organized ~ Oh my goodness there is
no way that I would be able to do all
of that because I am totally not organized
at all ~
Your puppy looks darling!

Oh Karla, you are so funny. I knew you would paint the bird hook white, but drag it through the gravel,never.
So happy you liked it. I am always amazed by the generosity of bloggers. I have cried and laughed over this and the stories everyone shares. And such inspiration. Lovely, lovely gifts and creations. You deserve it.

Thank you,
Debra Ganas

Oh my goodness! What wonderful things to behold in this blog, Karla! My very fav is that dress form pin or charm! I love that! Thanks so much for sharing all these wonderful gems!


Hi Karla! I received my tag book yesterday and opened it last night once I was all comfy in bed. What a treat! You did an amazing job and I thank you for taking so much time to bring such happiness to each participant. You really attract the kindest swappers. I received an email today from someone thanking me for my tag and with such sweet compliments. What an added bonus! I can only imagine the pride you must feel! The cover you made is just perfect! Thank you so much, Karla!!


Oh Karla, thank you! I enjoyed this swap very much, and love my book. Thank you to the women to participated too! Everyone's efforts made this a wonderful swap, but if it wasn't for you Karla, it wouldn't have happened. You're a magic maker, for sure!


such a beautiful tag book, Karla! Sorry I didn't sign up for the tag book...don't remember why I didn't to be honest. Can't wait to see you again in October!


Oh, I am just kicking myself for not sending an extra tag for your book!! Sometimes I just get so caught up in following directions that I don't think hard enough. Darn darn darn! What a bevy of beautiful things you received!


So many beautiful treats!! I am so sorry I didn't think of adding something extra for you! I know, I know... that's not at all why you did the swap... but still I should have thought of it. I'm slapping myself on the wrist right now. I'm glad so many other gracious swappers did think of it, though! All those beautiful, beautiful goodies!!

I received my wonderful tag book this past week and am overjoyed with it. It's an absolute delight to go through each one and I intend to post about it very soon. I'll let you know when I do! I am very happy to have joined in and you are an amazing swap hostess!

This appears to be so much work I cannot imagine the time and effort you put forth. The tags are spectacular. How very sweet to receive all the goodies you have shown. I have not participated in any swaps...as of yet. I am going to be doing a charm swap so I am excited about that. If you ever do another tag or ??? swap I hope to participate as I never want to miss out again. Sunday Smiles...

Hi Karla, Your tag book is so wonderful. I have hosted swaps before but never this size, I don't know how you do it. I would be so confused. You did such a wonderful job. Thank you again for hosting this wonderful swap. I really enjoyed it. Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri


Aloha Karla,
I love your tag book! It must be fun to just flip through the pages and soak in all the art. Wonderful charm, rosette and pendants you have, how lucky.


Me again, I forgot to tell you how I love your Dorkie, so cute!
I have a king charles cavelier and she follows me in and out of my studio. I don't think she'll sit still and let me put a tag book on her; she may end up gnawing it to death.

Christa from Chloe Rose

I received my tag book this weekend. It was so much fun to open it and look through the artwork. So many talented ladies :).

This was my second tag swap that I signed up with you. I LOVE and treasure both of the books that I received. I look forward to participating in your future swaps!


Chloe Rose


Hi Karla,
You received some wonderful treasures...I love the metal birdies from Chloe Rose. The little silver nest with eggs is from me. I'm so glad you like it. It's looks sweet hanging on the hook.

Thanks again for hosting this swap. I got my tag book and I love it!!

Heidi Meyer

Such beautiful tag gorgeousness and pretty gifts too!! I can't sing either (but I do anyway, when I am alone of course or to torture my beloved). When my first child was an infant I used to sing him show tunes and commercials because I had not learned lullabys at the time. No wonder that kid loves "Kung Fu Fighting" now, lol. xxoo Heidi
