Welcome to my party!

Let me jump right up and shake your hand, introduce myself and welcome you to my party!

I have chips and salsa over here —-> and I have brownies over there <———–

I’m Karla – a 35 year old, married, stay-at-home mom of three (pregnant with #4) who runsFruition Designs, a design business specializing in birth announcementswedding stationary and now, Mommy cards. I also have a business blog.

I’ll wait while you go sign up for the prizes (but come right back!) – my Mommy Cards are on there. If you don’t have children, you can have them made for a shower gift, or I can give you a gift certificate to use later. We’ll work it out.

You’ll see all sorts of topics on my blog – mainly about my journey through life – trying to balance kidswork, and my beliefs (which are based on this). If you really have time on your hands, and are really bored, be sure to read 100 things about me.

I look forward to getting to know you! Please be sure to leave a comment (no matter how brief) just to let me know you were here. Hope you enjoy the brownies and the party!

Blessings, Karla

    I do not have a blog I do enjoy reading other blogs such as yours.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog – there is a season.

    I read you often, but today is the first day I read your 100 things so I found out you were born in Alabama – yippee! Also found out that we both love Krispy Kreme…my lower half really doesn’t like them but they wear them so well – not really LOL!

    Hope I didn’t put too much salt on the chips but I’m a salt-aholic!

    Karla, I know we’ve blogged before and it’s great to see a familiar face! I didn’t realize that you live in Middle TN. I love that area (and the east) of TN as it’s gorgeous.

    Thanks for the invite to your shindig and I’ll see you around the party.
