This Month's Contributions - August

I just sent in the information and photos for this month's charity contributions!
If you don't know already, every month April's Army on Etsy opens up a collective shop for charity. The proceeds go towards a fellow Etsy seller in need.
(To get information on past recipients to get an idea of what we do, check the Notes section of the Facebook Page!)

Hello Interloper has been a contributor for the past two monthly sales, donating a total of $22 worth of crafts.
Our ultimate goal is to donate a total of $75 worth of crafts by the end of 2011.
This month we're upping the ante and donating two items to the shop!

First is a needle-felted set by me, Maddie. :)

Based these little guys off of the expression "A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush." Why not have two birds AND a bush?

The second item is a classy coral necklace made by my mother, Hanna! She has decided to join the cause this month, which is always a welcome gesture!

Pink and red bamboo coral with silver spacers and clasp... and don't forget the magnetically attached removable pendant!

Keep an eye out for these two items in this month's charity sale!
I'm almost positive the shop opens August 29th, so mark your calendars... items in the shop usually go FAST!

(If you want to take a look at the previously sold items in the April's Army collective, or see the great feedback given for these items, check out the April's Army Etsy Shop!)

Yellow Needle Felted Cat - Work In Progress Photos!

Thought I'd do a quick post showing the work-in-progress photos I took while making my newest addition to the Etsy store, the Yellow Cat!

The cat had humble beginnings... as a head!

Beware the souless, empty stare! And yes, those are arms!

Excuse the crotch shot... I work on my lap in front of the TV. Anyway, the cat's face has been further formed, and now he has a body!

More crotch... sorry about that. Well, either way, the cat is almost complete, save for the eyes and footpads! And don't forget the tail!

The finished result! He still needed to be trimmed in this photo.

Trimmed, and ready for his photoshoot! Here he is complete at last, sitting on my dragon fruit cactus!

Oh yes, I did...
And THAT, my friends, is for another blog entry. ;]
