A few weeks ago I used my Christmas crafting time to create some special ornaments for a local organization (Rescue NL).  Doing this meant some of my customers had to wait an extra few days for their orders.  Nobody seemed to mind.  😉

I’ve been told that the ornaments were launched today and sold out pretty much immediately.  I just thought I’d share them now that they have been made public.  I’m especially pleased with the boxes I made to go with them.

If you’re not familiar with Polar’s story, he’s a Pyreneese Mountain dog who was treated so poorly that he doesn’t have much trust in people.  Rescue NL (and his foster mom) has been working hard to make a better life for Polar.  These ornaments were donated to help with the cost of creating an outdoor run/dog door for Polar as he is most happy outdoors and his foster mom needed a way for him to access his outside home independently.

Since I’m talking about pet rescues today, I want to take a moment to suggest that you donate to a local animal shelter this Christmas if you are able.  We make an extra donation each year in lieu of buying dog toys/presents for our beagles at Christmas.
