At Last ... I Can Tell You ..

Hello my dear friends,

you have no idea how hard it is not to talk about something that you are over the moon about and very excited about too. I had to keep quiet and not share this for some time ... but at last now I can.
If you have read Vicki's latest post ~ 2 Bags Full ~ then you will know that she has designed a new nest for next year. And ....

... I am going to be a very tiny part of it!!

It all came about when I created my little 'Flutter~ bys' a several months back and Vicki approached me about them and long story told ... now they are going to be a part of her newest designer nest that will be created for a so worthy cause ... to help tiny babies in need.
I am not going to give anymore away, but you can pop over to Vicki's blog and read all about it.
But I will share a photo of the nest with you right now as a little preview.

I can only tell you right now how happy I am and touched and also honoured that I was picked to take part in this way of making a little difference in this world. Thank you Vicki, dear friend.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.


  1. her nests are beyond gorgeous, as is vicki herself. a kind and giving person and an amazing textile artist too! i have been honored to make my hand rolled eggs for some of her beautiful nests. so happy for you that you will be part of her vintage spring nests! such a special fundraise...for some very special little babes.

  2. I was thrilled to bits when I heard that I made it onto the list, I adore Vicki's nests so much. She is an incredible lady. I was also delighted to hear that you are involved as well ( now I know it is with your flutter-byes, yay ), and I can't wait to hear what Suzy is contributing. Definitely worth waiting a whole year for.

  3. that is beautiful.............just wonderful and amazing.....xo

  4. Congratulations on being able to contribute to Vicki's most generous charity Spring Nests. Your Flutter-byes are wonderful. Happy Hearts are Creative Hearts...

  5. Sigh~~ I love you sweet Karen. I am overjoyed to have you to be a part of this incredible project -- these nests will be more beautiful than any so far.It just seems so long to wait -- almost a year -- but until them I am busy, busy, busy -- as are you girlfriend!

    (Gosh that photo looks gorgeous here on your blog!!)

    Love you!


  6. I was thrilled when I read that Vicki had asked you to contribute to this newest nest. It will be wonderful to have a little flutter-by made by you on my nest. That sneek peak photo is just gorgeous, but every nest Vicki has created is gorgeous. I always feel honored that my purchase also helps a special organization in raising funds for it's needs. This one especially touches my heart, innocent babies.
    Bless you and Vicki.

  7. Hi Karen, WOW, congratulations! What a wonderful project to be included in. Your flutter-by's are amazing. As I have made a few and given them away, their joy is continually spread about. Thank you for making them and sharing your pattern. Blessings and smiles, Emilou :-)
