karen...using tons of your stuff right now in a wedding album for my beautiful niece. such great product. seriously. just caught up w/ your blog ... photo's and moments -- i love that everyone who checks in to your site really is pulling for you ... keep dancing a crazy happy dance on purpose in the middle of your most stressed out time ... just look up and laugh out loud and thank God that He is faithful to accomplish what concerns you ... I believe that for you & your family! oh, and being a little girl with bangs (at annie's age) and the sweet memories of my mom cutting my bangs with her pearl-handled barber scissors ... well, i love her little bangs & pig-tails ... she is cute without even tryin' ... prayers & hugs from hot springs, arkansas! ...marilyn

I have my fingers crossed.


It is gorgeous, Karen!! Love it! So glad Josh is coming home today!! Have a great day and week ahead!! :)


I recently found your blog because I saw some of your paper on a website and fell in love with--and now I look for your layouts and new stuff whenever I can. I've been waiting anxiously for an order I placed at that has lots of your yummy paper in it and really hoping it comes soon! I live in Alaska so I haven't been able to get anywhere for any of your classes, but just might have to order a kit now so I can do this album--it's gorgeous! Do all of your kits come with a cd or instructions? Take care and thanks for sharing your lovely art!

Robyn W.

This is sooo cute Karen! I can't wait to see the whole kit! Love what you do! :)

Love the album! Count me in


you aren't alone. mom guilt, it's the worst thing. What about a mommy's helper to keep the door closed (and locked) while you're working and leave everyone at home. And maybe they can cook or clean also? Might the kit too, don't want you to think I don't! ;)


The album is beautiful :) Count me in.

Val from Down Under

Love your ideas and would love to win. Either way I'm going to get one - I'll email you to pay for it if I have to! It's so hard to find your stuff here in Australia. Have a great day and remember God loves you.


Fabulous album. Count me in as well.


Wow what an awesome album. Pick me! Pick me! I'm jumpin up and down with my hand in the air. (tee hee) How sweet to share one with your readers. You are so creative and talented crafter. Thanks for a chance.


Gotta love your kits and classes! I'm hoping everything works out for you this week, and I'm sure you will do just fine whichever way the decision goes! You just have that way about you!

Donna S.

Absolutely beautiful! I would love to be the proud owner of one of these kits. You really outdid yourself with all the new CHA releases. Can't wait to purchase some of it (okay, all of it!)

Hi Karen,

I totally love all your wonderful products and the beautiful layouts and off the page creations you make. I just wish we didn't have to wait so long to get your products down here in Melbourne Australia. It would be fantastic to do a class with you and i constantly check your blog to see how you and your family are doing, (feels like we're old friends)! Congrats on your engagement and i hope all goes well.
Look forward to seeing all your new collections !!

Awesome kit!!

Rachel V

The album kit sounds absolutely yummy! Thanks for the chance to win. And I totally know where you're coming from on the previous post. It is so hard to balance and juggle. The light at the end of the tunnel will arrive someday. I keep thinking it might be when the youngest moves out....and then I'll be so very sad that it's finally here. kwim?


WOW! Beautiful book! I love everything that is the Narratives lines!

Heather Prins

YEAH!!! Josh is coming home! You never cease to amaze me, I truly do not know how you manage to do what you do with him gone at times. I know you struggle with how you feel you are doing, but girl just know you ROCK this mom stuff!

So is this the class that got postponed at NBP??? Sorry about that but it makes me sooooo happy, now maybe I can take it!! You know I am almost 100% digital these days but your stuff I still want to play with :) I am hoping some of your proposal will be DIGITAL!! Hint Hint
