Yikes. I didn't realize how long it's been since my last update. To say I've been having a busy summer would be quite an understatement. Without spoiling too much of the surprise, I'm going to say that for the past month or so, I've been working on a very big crafty collaboration with my newest and coolest local gal pal, Heidi. It's the only excuse I have for not updating & I'll be posting some sneak peaks of our special project soon so stay tuned!
But now I'd like to turn your attention to a creative new Etsian I recently discovered. Reggie of Pudgy Pug Pendants is based in Chicago, IL. Her shop just opened last month. She's a lover of all creatures great and small, especially dogs and horses. She's the proud owner of 2 rescued Pugs, "Kramer & Oscar." In her spare time, she volunteers with the Northern Illinois Pug Rescue, the organization she adopted her "boys" from to help other needy Pugs find loving homes. She has a special place in her heart for things that are vintage, especially from the Victorian era, such as artwork, jewelry and porcelain figurines of Victorian shoes and some of the creations in her shop are a clear reflection of this. She loves going to antique shops and flea markets to find treasures to display. She also likes to de-stress by creating unique pendants and pins for her new shop, to wear herself or to give to friends and family. She plans to donate a portion of all of her sales to the Northern Illinois Pug Rescue.
Here's some of Reggie's pendants. Some are made with vintage postage stamps and some are made with Victorian die cuts.
If you'd like to create your own postage stamp pendants, there's plenty of similar vintage postage stamps available for purchase in my shop. I have everything from dogs,
cats, insects and more!
Please have a look at Reggie's shop and be sure to tell her I sent you! X-Mas is creeping up on us and it'll be here before you know it. These pretty little pendants will make perfect stocking stuffers for your animal loving family and friends.
