First up is Labels of Love 2 - more fun label frames and sentiments to coordinate with both the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio 3 set of dies AND Labels of Love (the original label stamp set), which makes whipping up decorative sentiments a snap, especially since the sentiments in this set will cover most holidays and occasions throughout the year!
Labels of Love 2 is also the next stamp set to be part of The Giving Tree charity series.
The TE Giving Tree is a program designed to raise funds for a different charity each quarter. For the months of November, December and January, Taylored Expressions will donate $5 from the sale of each Labels of Love II stamp set to the Union Rescue Mission.
In part the URM's Mission Statement reads:
We embrace people experiencing homelessness with the compassion of Christ – giving hope and healing for a changed life – helping them find their way home.
By Embrace we mean to welcome, to encircle with our arms.
By Compassion we mean to love and touch others, as Christ loved us.
By Hope we mean providing encouragement and resources for a new start.
By Healing we mean being restored in body, mind, and spirit through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
By Changed Life we mean going in a new direction and to realize our God-given purpose.
By Home we mean having the opportunity to earn a living, secure housing, and be a healthy family again.
The Union Rescue Mission (URM) was founded in 1891 and is one of the largest missions of its kind in America--bringing help and hope to men, women, and children experiencing homelessness in Downtown Los Angeles. Taylor's husband, Jon, served at the Union Rescue Mission when they lived in California and saw first hand the impact it had on the lives of the homeless. Visit the Union Rescue Mission website at http://urm.org/
You may be happy to learn that ALL of the TE Giving Tree sets now come completely trimmed and ready to stamp - woot!
