Princess Belle

This adorable little Pomeranian is Princess Belle (that's the name I gave her).  Originally she was raised by a breeder that kept her in a room for over seven years and once she became to old to have more babies the breeder got rid of her.  Princess Belle was rescued by an acquaintance of a co-worker of mine.  When I first saw her it was love at first sight and Princess Belle came home with me that same day.

I was amazed at how sweet Princess Belle was especially after she had gone through such tragic circumstances for most of her life.  Unfortunately due to her having been so sheltered she was terrified of every noise and the kids that lived above me were extremely loud.  Princess Belle was a nervous wreck and eventually I had to give her back temporarily to the acquaintance that had rescued her until I moved out of my apartment. 

I finally moved to another home with a yard but the acquaintance wouldn't honor her promise to me and I never saw Princess Belle again.  I think of her often and my prayer is that she has a happy life.

I came across this little card album that I made with some of these photos of Princess Belle.  The cardstock is from the "Mimi" collection which is now called "More Mimi".  The stamps are from the "Yield to the Princess" set.

Almost A TAC Contest Entry

I love to enter The Angel Company Monthly Contests.  I decided to enter the "All I Want for Christmas" category and made this book.  I thought it would be fun to make a book using the "Christmas Wish List" stamp set that would help keep track of my family and friend's Christmas wish list ideas. 

I used my new favorite cardstock "Reece".  Ironically just before I left for the Post Office to mail it I had this horrible thought - I had used a retired stamp set.  I was so sad.  I found out that my thoughts were correct and I couldn't send it in.  I'm trying to focus on the positive side - at least I still get to keep it and can use it this Christmas.

A Little Hello - TP Album

I'm trying to remember when I first saw an adorable album that was made using empty toilet paper rolls. I decided to make one today and it was so much fun.  All supplies used are from The Angel Company.  FYI - I used beige cardstock for the inside tags however they appear more white from scanning.  The cardstock I used is call "Reece" (I love it) and the stamps are called "Life Thoughts", "Sail Away" and "Be Square".  I really love these owls - they are just adorable.

Altered Key Chains - Holiday Craft Bazaar

Wow!!  It's hard to believe that its been almost a month since I have added anything to my blog.  I have been extremely busy making lots of projects for a Holiday Craft Bazaar that I was a part of last weekend.  I decided to share a few of the altered key chains that I made to sell. These are super quick and easy to make and they were a huge hit at the craft bazaar.  All supplies used are from The Angel Company.  These photographs show the front and back of each key chain. As soon as I have a chance to go through the rest of the photographs of the items I made I will post them.  Thanks for looking!
