EFA Rockin' BNR

JMcGuinness has created a very tempting BNR featuring the EFA Team Store (thanks to Katie of mishkat) and a bunch of others participating the Birthday Bash. All people (including people who are not members of Team EFA) are welcome to purchase ANY item from the featured stores and get that item replaced by one of their own. Since the team is large and well known, you are bound to get plenty of exposure if your item is in the treasury. And you also get the good karma of buying from someone who donates a portion of their proceeds to help animals.

So come join the fun at "EFA Rockin' BNR Round 3!" :)

Missed out on these treasuries

2 awesome treasuries which I missed out on while they were running since I was busy over the weekend. But they're so beautiful, it would be a pity not to post the screen shots here.

The first one's by makemesmile. I had managed to grab a screen shot before it expired.

And this one's by Annette of dragonhouseofyuen who did all the work and convoed me the information directly :)

Off to go scout for new treasuries now which feature the EFA Team Store in them!

DEADLINE: September 30

We already have 2 wonderful entries.

Thanks, LolaLynn

Packrat Paradise and more Blue

It's always nice to have non-members featuring items from the EFA Team Store. Means that the store's getting exposure outside of the team and that makes a world of difference because every extra bit counts.

Toomanytreasures has created their very first treasury and it's such a fun theme. All the beautiful items featured in this "Packrat Paradise" reach right out and touch the packrat in all of us! Thanks for featuring us! :)

As much as we love having non-members featuring us, we also really appreciate those members who repeatedly put EFA in their treasuries. And the top person among these is definitely Cynmb. Here is another of her famous "Blue" treasuries.

Please support both these treasuries.

Until next time... your treasury hunter,

LUNARIA SEED embedded - Plantable handmade Paper made from Lunaria seed pods - Happy Birthday Card by Recycledideas

(Congratulations to recycledideas. This item has sold)

** Give the gift that keeps on giving **Lunaria flowers decorate the front of this handmade paper card. I make the paper by hand using the papery seed pods of the lunaria plant. The dried, pressed pulp is at once rich with fibrous tendrils - yet smooth and soft. This paper also has lunaria seeds embedded in it. This card can be grown.

Lunaria is a fragrant plant that produces big bunches of purple flowers and unique seed pods that look like silver dollars. The flowers smell wonderful. Fully grown, the plants stand about 4 feet tall and have big, broad leaves - perfect to hide an ugly foundation! Did I mention they smell great? They do!

This card comes with germination instructions. They germinate easily using this method. That's a sprout emerging from the plantable paper I make. Each card has about 20 seeds in it, which is more than enough to grow several plants. They can be planted in the fall for a spring bloom or in the spring for flowers the following spring.

(This entry tied for 3rd place in the September Birthday Bash Challenge Contest)

This listing shows my entry for Etsy For Animals September Challenge 08. The SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE theme is "HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY to the EFA SHOP".

I've embroidered a sign "EFA Celebrates! 1 Year Helping Animals. I've crocheted two little animals to help with the celebration and to get the word out! "Efa the Elephant" is as sweet as she can be. She stands 4 inches tall by 6 and 1/4 inches wide (her big ears!) I've used a very soft gray yarn, pink felt for the inside of the ears and her little pink tongue, white and black felt behind her black and silver eyes, and bits of white frill yarn for her eyelashes and tuft of hair. I finished her off with a pretty bright pink and white daisy button and pink satin bow that sits on top of her head. Efa the elephant is for sale for $20.00 plus shipping. Please contact me for a special invoice if you are interested.
Awbie the Raccoon is just smitten with Efa! He holds up a sign with her name to show his love for all to see. I made him with soft mixed shades of mustard yellow and black yarns. He has black and silver eyes that stand out on his raccoon mask. I had the most fun with his tail, which makes him so handsome with it's black and mustard strips. He hopes that Efa notices and thinks so too! Awbie is also for sale for $20 plus shipping.

If you would like to purchase Efa and Awbie together (so they can live happily ever after!), you can buy them at the discounted price of $30.00 plus shipping. Again, please contact me first for a revised invoice. 10% from the sale of Efa will go to Etsy For Animals, where 100% of all money goes directly to the animal charity of the month. 10% from the sale of Awbie will go to AWBAR, a wonderful group dedicated to saving wild baby animals and nursing them back to health. You can visit their Etsy store by going to It's members, also very talented, have donated wonderful handmade items to the AWBAR store.

Team EFA Birthday Bash Party Hat Catnip Mouse by VivaLeChat

Happy Birthday, Team EFA!

In honor of Team EFA (Etsy for Animals)'s first birthday, team members are listing birthday party themed items (search "team efa" and "birthday" for more items)! This li'l guy is made to look like a party hat, complete with "Fun Fur" yarn "whiskers", bright colors, and a tail designed to look like a neck strap. Unlike my other mice, this one also has a flat-butt so it can stand up on end--just like a party hat!

And wow is my li'l girl ZZ jealous! Looks like I'll have to make her a party hat too!

I lost my Viva to heart failure on June 23, 2008, but want to help other people facing similar financial difficulties. A third of the proceeds from my mice will be going to, an organization that raises funds for low-income families with prohibitively high vet expenses.

Happy Birthday EFA by UniqueTreatDogBones

( This is the 1st place winner in the September Birthday Bash Challenge Contest)

This doggie muffin cake is in honor of EFA's first birthday!It was actually made for my birthday, but I had to share it with my boys, which made me alter it a tad so that they could have more at one time. So you will get the doggie version of this birthday muffin cake. It is larger than most muffins and is really a good sized personal cake. It is a taste treat that is worthy enough to use in celebration of anyone's birthday!

I will add some doggie safe icing to your pup cake at no additional charge. If you'd like it, just make a note in the notes to seller box!

Although this treat will remain eatable at room temperature, it will be best if kept in the refrigerator if not consumed right away. Refrigeration will extend the shelf life to approx. 3-4 weeks after delivery.

My charity is actually the EFA charity of the month for September, the Highland County (OH) Humane Society Animal Shelter. I have been giving 10% of this shops sales to them, as well as blankets and food at various times. This shelter has been one of my family's favorite places to donate for many years, as they service a large area and are always over crowded and in need.

The director currently has 62 animals at her personal home, caring for them and the ones at the shelter. She works tirelessly.

It's His Party And He'll Cry If He Wants To by LateJuly

This is apart of the Charlie series. An original print 5"X7" print and photograph of Charlie in his 4th birthday party wearing a birthday hat. It is crazy how human like dogs can be, and this photo showcases that. While he looked like he had the birthday boy blues, he was actually quite happy the rest of the day!

About Charlie: Charlie is a very unusual Jack Russell Shih-tzu (you can conjure the abbreviation). Some fun facts about Charlie:-he was a rescue dog, who at 2 years was homeless as his family had moved and forgot him!-before being adopted he fell out of a two story window and survived-due to his health issues he is a vegetarian as he is sorely allergic to meat-he hopes to open up his own doggie restaurant some day-his favorite band is the Beatles and he loves music by Keith Jarrett

About LateJuly Photos: I volunteer at pounds and animal controls where I am the only rescue coordinator. I assist injured, sick, and challenged animals to find a home or rescue, to avoid unnecessary euthanasia. I take pictures of the animals, and they always fascinate me giving me the best and most interesting shots. I include a profile of the shelter animal and where I got their name from.
