ostentatious orange


I love orange! It brings such a happy, bright pop of color. Here are some of my favoite orange items in my craft room.




A little orange wallet - I absoluetly adore this print!



Gorgeous letterpress flats from Angela with coordinating envelopes. Love!


My little journal, which keeps track of the dimensions/measurements of my self-made patterns.

One of my handmade bags in a pretty print I call "Orange Blossom."

I LOVE orange, and yellow, and bright green.. Apparently I like the bright colors!! And I think I really want your purse. I keep thinking I should be able to make one and just need to, and let's be honest- it never makes it anywhere near the top of the list. So maybe I should just have YOU make me one and me buy it from you!

Loving that purse and wallet. When Brian and I got engaged, his grandma asked him what my favorite color was, so she could embroider me an afgan. He told her orange, and she made this neon peach afgan for me. It's pretty awesome.

Wow...after looking at you're pictures I think I love orange too. :)

Karla-
I expect an honest answer to this question.....how many bags/purses do you own? Not that there is a wrong answer-it's like shoes; the more the merrier!

Orange and yellow are my favorites. Had to have them in my wedding. I love the pattern on that handbag and the little white trim around the top. You inspire me. :)

Karla, your bag and wallet are so adorable--not to mention the gorgeous stationery. The wallet pattern reminds me of the flocked velvet wallpaper in Lanette's house, which I love.

I am so proud to say that I touched the orange wallet in real life! It was soooo good to see you. You and Jeff are some of my all-time favorite people.

Hey! I hope you don't mind, I've become a fan of your blog. Have you ever considered putting advertisements on your blog? I think you should.

Karla, where do you buy your fabric? I'm sure you've mentioned this before on your blog, but I'm not sure. I'm looking for some great fabric for a baby blanket and my search has been fruitless. Can you help me? email me: paige123(at)gmail.com

Oops. That comment was from me. :)

So I am on a huge orange kick right now. I love all your projects! You are seriously one of the most talented people I know!
