Creatures helping Amelia




NOTE: The Paypal button I originally had below isn't working. So email me and I will send an electronic invoice for now until I figure it out. Wow! I knew you'd love them. Only one donkey left! Now, what about those sweet sheep? Sheep are $18.50 each [includes s/h]

I recently met Deborah Holmes who lives about an hour from me. She has chickens and some goats and has a love of donkeys. In fact, she might own a donkey someday. Deborah knows how to work with felt, one of my favorite things, and she made some mini felt creatures and showed them to me. I was in love and immediately encouraged her to make more! Aren't they so wonderful?

Deborah is raising funds for a friend who needs a transplant. All the money from selling these little creatures will go directly to the National Transplant Assistance fund to help Deborah's friend, Amelia. She captured the spirit of a donkey so well. She also did some sweet little sheep. They are $25-$28.50, includes USA s/h.

And next month, Deborah is going to come teach me how to make these! Can you imagine what will happen when I know how to make felt creatures? A barnyard will form over time....And I thought they might be fun to make for care packages from Pino to elderly or cancer wards. Scroll down to see Paypal button, and select your item.

Oh how sweet!!

I tried to buy Donkey #5 but the link just took me to my Paypal account, not to a purchase for this item.

Deborah little critters are very cute. It looks like a perfect medium for you, too.

Happy birthday! Welcome to a Grand time of life. T.

Hi - I just received my little girl in the mail today - Donkey #1 - she's lovely and sweet and beautiful and she is on our mantel in her new home. She'll also be going to france with us.

Darn it, I missed the donkey sale! They really are lovely and personality-filled little creations. Let me know if/when there are more!
