I have been wanting to give back to the animals for a while now and since being on Etsy I have kept running across this tag called Team EFA...I decided to figure out what it was all about and sign up!
I am now a proud member of Etsy For Animals! I will be making a donation to a charity of my choice...the charity may change every few months.
At the moment I am donating to a local charity, the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Center! In the next few days I will be making turtle earrings and necklaces. Check Etsy for updates! :)
10% of my sales each month will be donated to this wonderful Center!
If you would like to sign up to this wonderful cause please contact mvegan5

Hey there Blogging and Etsying friends!! I have started to make sweet little kitties that are up for adoption on Etsy! However, I thought it would be fun to have a Giveaway to kick off the adoption center!! My cats range in sizes...but are mostly between 1 1/2" - 3" tall....they all have their own little stories about themselves and would love to go to loving homes!
The giveaway is very easy, please just leave a comment to this post and I will add you to the draw. I made a cute little poster for the side bar for those who would like to show it off on their blog! Please link the picture to this Giveaway post. :-)
I will be making the draw Feb. 20th!! So there is plenty of time to get a few people involved!
I will be drawing 5 people randomly, they will be notified and also listed on my blog!

Well...here he is in all his glory, haha! I saw this and had to take a picture...usually he is sleeping in here but he was cleaning himself in his toy basket! To your left Kermy's legs are stuck up in the air...that has always been his favourite toy. He is just thinking....what a silly human....why would she take my picture when i'm doing this...and why are you playing with my toy camera!!
And my sweet sweet Malachi...I found him sleeping in this paper bag... Oooopse I think I woke him up!

Hey there! I have been away on an earring making holiday...which essentially means I was at my dining room table shedding blood sweat and tears over my new earrings, well maybe it wasn't that bad...I am happy to announce though that I have uploaded a bunch of new artwork and taken all new pictures to really show how lovely my little earrings are. I have done an Etsy makeover and would love to share it with you. I redid my banner and my pictures and this is where I am at :)

3. Chocolate - cutting back now that christmas is over..... haha
4. Hugs - ....listened to to much Hugabunch as a kid :)
5. Cinnamon Apple Christmas Holiday smell - this year I bought a spray can of it....it now permeates my household........and Im not sure what happens to the christmas trees when they are picked up....I sprayed the tree a little.................I hope they dont light them on fire....

Well, I am back online (gone for a few weeks). I am more excited than ever about this year coming up. In making all my christmas presents I found out a wonderful new way of directing my creative waterfall. My new works of art will be available soon on Etsy. They are the cutest things!
I don't know about anyone else but I must have gone to some sort of party every second night this holiday season....I am now winding down my christmas gorging. Putting a halt to my chocolate pig outs. Its now green tea and finn crisps for the rest of the year....well maybe after todays wine and blue cheese tenderloin feast......
Writing this in between 1 of 10 movies being watched today in my pajamas. Hopefully everyone else is in their pj's too! It's become a new years tradition in our house. :)
Better be off......Gandalf is about to kick some ork butt!
Happy New Year to all and to all a day of wine and relaxation!
