Today, we are sharing with you a special set in a series of sets that are part of the Taylored Expressions Giving Tree.
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.

And the special set for the month is Labels of Love II!! You may recognize the shape of the image, as this is a follow-up set to the first Labels of Love set that was designed to coordinate with the Ribbon Tags Trio Die. This set features all new designed frames and sentiments that are perfect to cover almost every holiday of the year! What a great Christmas gift to to send out too, right? :)
As always, this set is a full set of deeply etched rubber mounted on EZ mount, ready for your acrylic blocks! There are 27 images and sentiments, and don't forget, it coordinates with the original Labels of Love set AND the Ribbon Tags Trio Die. Also, our very own, Taylor, designed these sets for her TE line of stamps.
For my sample, I used some pretty paper from the TE store, the MME Lost & Found Blush coupled with some yummy Carnation Pink Silk Ribbon. I used two dies, the Ribbon Tags Trio (of course!) and the Medium Scalloped Border Die.
Now, I hope that you can hop around and visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen to see what they've done with this adorable set! AND!! We also have a new Baker, Jen Shults, has joined us, so please give her a nice warm welcome!!
