Carla's Angels

I am always on the lookout for great resources and I wanted to share another one with you, Carla's Angels. This website has an amazing amount of personalize angel pins you can purchase, or you can have her design one specifically for you.  Below are a few of my favorite angel pins from her collection. Make sure to read the story behind the pins taken from the website too!

Morgan

Morgan's Dad is a Police Officer.  In this design, the police officer is carrying his baby angel, wrapped in a golden blanket, close to his heart. 

This Angel was a custom design by a friend of the family.
This is truly a sad, sad story for me.  2 of my very close friends, lost twin babies to a miscarriage in September 03.  But much to everyone's joy, they conceived again and we were all anxiously waiting the birth of Morgan Elizabeth who was due on September 4, 2004.  Mom had a perfect pregnancy and did everything right,  but on her appointment to the doctor on August 25 they couldn't find the baby's heartbeat ~ only 10 days from her due date.  Morgan Elizabeth was stillborn on August 27th, due to a knot in her umbilical cord.  This was the most beautiful baby I've ever laid eyes on, perfect in every way.  Its such a terrible and sad thing that she didn't even get to meet her parents, two of the sweetest and loving people in the world.  Dad is a police officer and can carry his in his patrol car.

Anna



Anna wears a flowing, loosely pleated, silver skirt.  She has wire lacey, filigree wings.  She is holding a lily and wears a twisted halo on her head.
A birthstone can be added to the center of the lily, just let me know the birth month in the comments section of the order form.

My husband and I recently lost our eight month old daughter, Anna, and I would like to have a pin designed in memory of her.
We used to call Anna "itty-bitty".  One thing that I always remember whenever I think of Anna is how she was always moving, even before she was born.  Anna had so much spirit and joy that I don't think she could hold still! 
I would like it if she could be holding a lily, they were her favorite flower to watch in our yard and we used them at her funeral.
Can you include a lacey, filigree, or scrolled pattern on the skirt either at the hem or all over, I loved to dress Anna in frills, you've done such a beautiful job with all of your pins that I trust your judgment.  A place for the birthstone would also be nice. 


Jessica

"Jessica" has a butterfly on her shoulder.  They say if a butterfly lights on you, you have been touched by an angel.  She is holding a pretty purple flower, wearing a simple gown and a crystal halo.

This angel was designed in memory of Jessica.
Jessica was a good friend of my daughters.  She was involved in a one car accident, just a few blocks from her home.  Jessica loved butterflies and the color purple.
Engraving is not available on this design.


There are so many beautiful angels on this site to choose from, or make one custom for your angel.  Stop by Carla's Angels to see more.
