Ring Bearer Pillow for Lisa's Pooch

Following are pics of a ring bearer pillow requested by Lisa.  The bone measures 4-3/4 inches across (I can't believe I was able to make it this small!) There's a loop at the top to tie it to the dog's collar, but in this case the pooch is very tiny so it can be tied to a ribbon that will fit around the body. The wedding rings are tied using the ribbon below the flowers.

The flowers aren't stitched on yet so that one of the two proposed models below can be selected.

1) My favourite - an ivory satin ribbon rose surrounded by two purple satin ribbon roses. There are tiny sheer bows with pearl centers at each end.


2) Same as above only the center ivory rose is replaced with another purple satin ribbon rose.

In this photo I'm holding the ring pillow to give relevance of the size.

Paper Dresser Mini Album

This past week I finished my little dresser mini album. I made it with chipboard and papers in shades of blue. I had fun embellishing it with crystals, lace, feathers, flowers and strands of "pearls". Each drawer opens up to reveal a mini album that holds up to 18 photos each - for a total of 54 photos.

The dresser measures 6-1/2 inches high by 7 inches wide and 5 inches deep. The mini albums measure 4-1/2 inches tall by 3-1/4 inches wide.

Check out my video!

I also have it on sale on Ebay right now where I have more photos posted: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Vintage-Shabby-Chic-HANDMADE-PAPER-DRESSER-with-3-Mini-Scrapbook-Photo-Albums-/251253952411?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_2&hash=item3a7fe70f9b&_uhb=1#ht_8848wt_1398
