The sculpture is a mixed media piece. The Pug is hand-sculpted from polymer clay and sits next to a vintage wooden bird ornament embellished further with polymer clay eggs and beads.
Lately I have been giving to various charities over the Internet either through EFA or when a story really hits home and I have the money like Sammy's story -- http://www.noahs-arks.net/RESCUE/SAMMY.html -- from Noahs Arks Rescue, he broke my heart and I had a bit extra so my sister and I both donated something.

This kitty is taking a long luxurious bath in Burano, Italy. I just love the rich and vibrant colors of this photo. If you ever get to Venice, taking the ferry to Burano is a must. Its brightly colored houses, green shuttered flower filled windows are charming. And the church's bell tower lean rivals that of Pisa.
This 4x6 photo is adhered to a 5x7 notecard and comes with a matching envelope.

My entry fits the "Hop Into Spring" theme because it features a petroglyph bunny - and when you think of spring...you think about bunnies!
I support animal charities by volunteering at Dreamchaser PMU Rescue and Rehabilitation ( http://www.dreamchaserpmu.org/ ) I help care for the horses and other animals there and I also recently adopted a rescued horse. I also donate 25% of my sales to the rescue and I'm also working on a Dreamchaser signature line of jewelry that the rescue can sell at adoption events and fundraisers. I am providing the jewelry and my services free of charge.

This adorable quilt was designed, pieced and machine quilted by me, and is made of quilt shop cotton fabric with 100 percent cotton batting. It features six different framed kitty cucumber motifs alternated by pieced patchwork squares.
Pink is the predominant color, followed by green, purple and yellow. The binding was carefully hand sewn for the best possible finish and matches the backing fabric which is also used in the quilt body. I have already washed it several times to get the vintage crinkly look and the finished measurement is now 54"x41".It can be machine washed and dried.The quilt was inspired by kitty named Bossy who crossed over the rainbow last spring. He had a pretty good life for a rescued ferral cat and had just celebrated his 20th (human years) birthday. He lived up to his name and helped to train my various dogs, cats, bunnies and hamsters in proper social conduct throughout his life time.
From the proceeds of the sale of this item I will donate $50 to the EFA Charity of the month for April which is:S*N*O http//www.siberiansneedingowners.org

This hat is perfect after a chilly day in the surf, during a night beach walk, or on any day that needs a little warming up. It is made from 100% space dyed wool, which makes it warm, breathable, and naturally water resistant. The yarn is a "thick and thin" yarn, which makes almost every stitch look a little different! All of these details combine to make this a one of a kind item. I call this color "coquina" because it reminds me of the beautiful pastel shades found on coquina shells.
Sunsetsurf donates 5% of all sales to the Save the Manatee Club.

"It doesn't feel like work at all! .. I actually work way more than the hours I'm allowed so I'm actually volunteering almost as much as I'm working! I also have 3 rescued dogs and 1 rescued turtle! I'm consitently promoting the animals at the shelter so they can get adopted in to loving homes. My current position at the shelter is the "Volunteer and Humane Education Coordinator" so I do a lot of works with school and community groups to teach the next generations how to be humane citizens."
