If you are NOT familiar with me by now Heres the deets on Kara!
*I use LOOOTS of Punctuation, like:!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! or ??????????????????? and .........................
*I type words and DONT use punctuation...like: Dont instead of Don't.....But I will overuse them at ends of sentences...............go figure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Dont know WHY????????????????????
*I CAPITALIZE TOOOOONS of words for excitement levels...Sometimes i Capitalize the First letter of Words...i guess to get your Attention..(did THAT just work???????)
*Then i DONT capitalize words im supposed to like : i..........instead of I.........Too much EFFORT!
* I TOO OFTEN eloooooooooooooooooooooooooongate words, again for excitement levels!!!
*I sometimes make up my OWN spelling of word, like: Guuuuuuuuuuuuuurlz = girls, Fo Sho = For Sure, What tha What tha = I DONT GET IT! , LUUUUUURVE = love, Ooh Eem Gee = Oh My Gosh because i dont want to just do OMG...cuz (that = because) I dont want to take Gods name in vein (Das a BIG NONO for me),  BTW,  das= thats!!!  OH, and just incase your not SUUUUURE....BTW=By The Way...
and this list could go OOOOOOOOOOOOOON and OOOOOOOOOOOON!!!  So last 2 , Karas Codebook Languange or Need to Knows: 
*I take ENTIRELY TOO MANY PICTURES!!!  Dont want yall to miss any angle!!!  Ive even  been laying on the Ground shooting a pic UP...Now THATS LOOOOOVE for my PEEPS!  (Peeps = my Friends!)

WE'd get nada (nothing) done!...and I say OMGosh! Shorther then EN EMM GEE...lol (laughing out loud)...hahaha...Love ya, KK (KrazyKara)..Your WI (Wisconsin) friend~ Diana!!!!!!!!!!

Traci said...

GORGEOUS!!! Of course that's stating the obvious but I'm high on sinus meds & can't think straight. Been meaning to tell you I love the idea of the multiple tree skirts. I paid a fortune for mine & you can't see it once the gifts are under the tree. OK so ttyl, I'm off to buy boots.

Denise said...

Girl you are CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZY !!!!!!!!!!! LOL,
love your decor, come and do mine please ;-)

Tete said...

Kara-this is the perfect post for everyone from my blog to come and see! I plugged you on my blog late last night and told everyone they had to come and see you and your home.
Take your photos at night with the flash off, you may want to get a tripod, because you do not get the auto focus without the flash on. Also for inside shots- my flash was way too bright. I taped a small piece of white card stock over it. Try that. It knocks it down pretty good. For close ups and up to 3 feet away. You get your auto focus and not blinding light that fades the colors out.
I have a very good photo editor too, that helps more than you would think.
Play, Play,Play...it will happen with that camera.
Hugs- Tete

Megandvd@Beauty in the Attempt said...

Cheers~

Oh Kara, I just love to read your posts, you have me laughing most of the time. So cute. Your tree, the table centerpiece and the chandy are all just fabulous. I don't really think Tom deserves such pretty things. lol Thanks for the "tute" also.

My package arrived today. I love it all. The cookbook is wonderful, I know I will cook a ton of things in it, and the candle is fabulous. It smells so good. Love of course the roosters, now they are just perfect. Your sweet card was a blessing. I love it all and can't thank you enough. Hugs, Marty
