I would love to win the craft day supplies. My sister-in-law and I have craft days, and we have so much fun. I find that I am more productive when I am working along with friends and family. When I work alone I distract myself with other things. I am currently working on the glue book swap, and "The Farmer's Wife" quilt. Have a great week.


Oh. My. Goodness. The little dress page in the first photo is darling! You could frame it just as it is. The books you girls are making are going to be amazing!

OMG...such a great idea...may have to borrow it, 9 of us did a swap with dolls a year ago, Idea from the art doll book. We did it for a year....started with a doll ...some baby dolls some very strange items, sent it off after a month or so and finally got our doll back...such fun amazing how some turned out....love to win anything your giving away...love, love your blog, it makes my day.

thanks again


Yes, please!!


Fingers crossed that number 46 is lucky for me. I turned 45 today so I'm seeing 46 as a sign that I'll be the lucky winner since it's the number of my comment and right after my age. Or oh well - thanks for sharing! Can't wait to see how the project progresses.

Have fun with it!

Heidi Meyer

Those type of craft days are the best - to just giggle over silly stuff and get excited about wonderful things like millinery and prized paper. I can't wait to see how your books turn out. Your cover and first page are beautiful! Tossing my name in the vintage hat~ xxoo Heidi

Patty in Kansas

Karla, what a wonderful photo of little Sugarwings' tiny feet "floating" above the ground....I remember seeing a photo last year where she appeared to be flying as she was facing away from the camera...how do you manage to take these shots? All the photos were beautiful. Patty in Kansas

Karla Nathan

Those shots of her flying are just lucky. She does jump up and down with glee a lot and I just happen to be snapping a pic. I do have a card in my camera that allows for higher speed shots.

I would love to be invited to one of your creative days. My son lives close to you. Sometimes it is good to work alone but it does get lonely, very lonely.
Your book is so stunning and full of love.
I adore vintage millinery. I use to make hats for some of our community plays.
I am drooling excessive over your give away. That is one dream give away. I have not seen those delicious velvet millinery flowers in forever. I collect vintage hats but I gave a lot of them to two of my great nieces and plucked the others like chicken feathers off a chicken.
I wanted to also tell you again how much fun the tag exchange was.
hugs to you on this beautiful day
