Rebecca and I jetted off to Kansas City to visit Karla and shop at West Bottoms during the first weekend of December.
Later, we decided that we had actually gone to visit Christmas.
We each created three ornament projects from Karla's kits:
And here it is finished, stuffed with the bottle brush tree, tiny wrapped gift, and vintage Christmas decor!
Angel tree topper or ornament -- On Gilded Wings
Karla called it Angel Pie.
Individual chicken pot pies!
I could not get over the pink poinsettias!
When we finished our 3 projects we just hung out in the studio with Karla and played with some of the extras she provided...
Like these tags I made from a fabulous scrap of stripey wallpaper and vintage goodies! And a couple of sparkly cards...
and these sweet spools using some of Karla's tiny bottle brush trees...and that wallpaper I loved!
I'm planning to glue ornament clips to the bottom of the spools.
Karla shared so much beautiful stuff, and clever techniques with us.
in every nook and cranny!
We had such a lovely day. Of course we did -- we visited Christmas, aka Karla's Cottage!
