I've been a member of EFA for many years, I support my local rescue groups and animal shelter. I have fostered and have rescued dogs. I have also contributed to the group "helpthegulfcoast" by way of donating an item from my shop and writing an article about them and their cause (part II of that article soon to come). I also support artisans, especially Etsy artisans by way of writing interview articles featuring them in the Examiner.com, my article page can be found at http://www.examiner.com/x-47621-Artisans-Examiner.

I was inspired by International Respect for Chickens Day to make this set of cards featuring chickens and butterflies. Matching chickens with a symbol of freedom reflects my hope for a world where these birds can be free to spread their wings, interact freely with others of their species, and be valued as individual beings.
I have a large selection of EFA Charity of the Month designated items. I also work as a foster volunteer for Carolina Pet Rescue, helping care for small animals like rats, hamsters, chinchillas, etc. depending on where I'm needed. On special occasions, such as world rat day, I also do 50% days when I not only donate 100% of the charity items to EFA, I donate 50% of the sales of all my other handmade items to a designated animal charity.

The ability to read is a gift. We can weave stories in our minds. Let the stories flutter about your imagination like these butterflies in your garden! This card includes a removable butterfly bookmark. The bookmark was made twice: one is removable and one is attached to the card so that it won't look naked when the bookmark is removed!

The Southern Ontario Animal Rescue uses these funds to purchase microchips and vet care for foster dogs and to aid dog foster families in purchasing food.

Come in a self sealing envelope and are signed on the backside individually by the artist. (me, an E. Tennessee Artist)

This butterfly necklace looks so sophisticated and pretty and no one will have to know it didn't cost you a fortune. The butterfly pendant is skillfully hand formed using 20 gauge sterling silver wire. Once shaped the wire was hammered for added strength and beauty.

Three 6 mm Swarovski crystals in colors of your choice are skillfully wrapped onto the pendant using fine sterling silver wire. Please see the fifth picture for color choices including birthstone colors. Butterfly pendant measures approximately 1.125 inches (2.8575 cm) tall by 1 inches (2.54 cm) wide.

This wonderfully bright and lively set of four butterfly notecards was created from my original abstract and pop art oil paintings. Each image was printed on high-quality photographic paper and then placed on acid- and lignin-free blank cards which are beautifully embossed with a flowering vine design. These vibrant cards measure 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, and white envelopes are included.
I donate my art and music to support local animal charities: the Humane Society of Forsyth County and Animal Rescue of Stokes County. I also promote awareness of the need for foster families for dogs. All of my dogs were strays, unwanted pets, or pound puppies... there's just nothing better!

I drew and painted this butterfly for my mother. It was in her garden and I love butterflies. What a gift I thought than to give my mom what we both share. A butterfly. As I grew older I started collecting butterflies. I always thought they brought luck or the person you were thinking about to you. This is now also in a note card. Note cards have noting inside while I place a small verse inside the card and any words you wish as, "Happy Birthday", "Greetings", "Congratulations Graduate", etc..
