Not sure what to buy? I also offer gift certificates in the denomination of your choice. You can purchase them through my Etsy shop or go to the PayPal link on the right sidebar. I will send the gift certificate through the mail and if you wish, e-mail your recipient that the certificate is coming. How easy is that?
I bet you know someone who would love one of these cuffs from my Cowgirl Cuff collection!

Naturally, our tree is decorated in western style with a mix of ornaments featuring our animals.
And this cowboy Santa with his Christmas foal is so sweet!
This ornament is made from an original oil painting of our bunnies. Charlotte, of CharlottesWebArt created this masterpiece!
Had to add Lee's "Gunny Claus" ornament... (he's a retired Marine Gunnery Sgt)
This is Sandie. She's been gone for a few years now, but is still with us in spirit! She lived a good long life, nearly 16 years...
Happy Holidays everyone!

One goal of my business plan is to donate 10% of my Etsy sales to various animal rescue groups. I do have my favorites and usually I like to donate to a group that is local, but I found Heartland Rabbit Rescue's site and blog and have been following it ever since. This month I am making a donation to their group by sponsoring one of their special needs rabbits.This is Hope. She was brought to Heartland Rabbit Rescue after being abandoned at a city shelter. She had weepy eyes due to a possible pasteurella infection and later developed signs of encephalitozoon cuniculi, which causes uncontrollable rolling and head tilt. Fortunately, her condition has improved, although she will always have the head tilt.
I hope that my donation will help with her care and that of the other bunnies waiting for their forever loving homes at Heartland Rabbit Rescue.

November was Heart of a Cowgirl's best month ever! I owe many thanks to everyone who has supported my dream, listened to my ramblings about growing my business, read my blog, gave moral support, and purchased my original creations! I tip my cowgirl hat to all of you!

Gulliver, the rescue mascot, makes his way on to all of the clothing, including sweatshirts, hoodies, t-shirts, denim shirts and tanks. Gulliver is a Clydsedale-cross who is just as cute and sweet as he is HUGE!
I wanted to add some pictures from the shop, but I wasn't able to download them. If you love horses or have people to buy for that do, Gulliver's Gift Shop offers a nice selection of clothing, art, home decor and jewelry to choose from. You can feel good knowing that the proceeds of your purchase will go to care for the many rescued horses at the sanctuary.

I LOVE this leather bound journal. Actually putting pen to paper with your thoughts -- what a concept! And check out this teeny weeny little leather bound journal! It has enough pages that you could write a little message to someone by putting a word on each page. Write a love letter or a thank you letter!How about these cute little book earrings? They would make a perfect gift for a teacher or anyone on your list who loves to read. The pretty pink cover makes them especially adorable!MyHandBoundBooks has many other styles of journals available, as well as other great items. Check it out. And remember to buy handmade this holiday season!

Rocki is a true artisan when it comes to her metalworking. In fact, she likes to think of her handcrafted ear wires, clasps and other jewelry findings as "Not just "supplies" but "Handcrafted Pieces of Art for Your Artistic Creations". And that they are. Her work is awesome, with attention to detail in every piece.

In addition to original paintings and drawings, her art includes a line of jewelry and handbags.
Speaking of handbags, I LOVE this one! (anyone looking to buy me a Christmas gift would do well with this!)
How cool is this cowgirl with her little filly? (kind of reminds me of me...with Piper) These bags are all originals, with rich fabrics and fringe and have a funky cowgirl style all their own! You can find this bag, as well as many others, in Deb's Etsy store.
Along with her Etsy shop and her own website, Deb's art can be purchased through CafePress.
You can get her artwork on everything from coffee mugs to greeting cards, tote bags, calendars and journals.
Deb compares her approach to her Art the way a Cowgirl approaches her life. With passion. It's what she calls, "thinking like a Cowgirl." I share that philosophy with her. You don't have to wear a hat and boots and ride a horse to have the cowgirl spirit!
Deb's creations have been featured in many art magazines and exhibited in various galleries and art shows nationally and internationally. She also teaches at art retreats around the country.
I could go on and on, but even if I did, I would never be able to do justice to Deb's art. You really should treat yourself and go check out her Cowboy's Sweetheart blog and website. I bet you will find something to bring out your inner cowgirl.
Yee Ha Cowgirl!!

I discovered another great crockpot idea for chicken enchiladas the other day. I cooked 4 boneless chicken breasts in the crockpot with a can of Rotelle (or you can use a can of stewed tomatos and a can of diced green chiles). When it was done, I shredded it and removed it to bowl. I then added green enchilada sauce to the bottom of the crockpot, layered corn tortillas (no need to soft-fry them first), the shredded chicken and cheddar cheese. Repeat the layers 3 times, finishing with cheese on top. Turn the crockpot to low and heat for about 1/2 hour. This turned out delicious! And I was able to get my chores down while this finished heating. Did I mention I love the crockpot???
