I want to give a little shout out to one of our readers, Elizabeth. She has a blog, Animal Scraps, and I wanted to share it with everyone. The reason I want to let everyone know about it is because people like Elizabeth deserve some recognition.

Now that I have your attention, I’m sure you want to know what it is she does. Elizabeth takes donated scraps of paper and makes very nice cards, selling a five pack for $25. All of the proceeds go towards animal shelters.

For The Love Of Animals

I am lucky enough to have friends that give me their scraps. They think I am doing them a favor by taking them. I think they are doing ME a favor by GIVING me beautiful pieces of design paper, ribbons, stickers, etc.

I have made cards with these free goodies for almost two years now. I don’t feel right selling the cards made from donated scraps, so I had this idea. To start a blog called Animal Scraps. With a donation of $25 a set of 5 hand crafted cards and envelopes will be mailed to the address you specify.

All donations collected by me will be sent to various animal shelters. Blog readers are encouraged to suggest various animal shelters they live near or support, which means the donations will be spread around the United States.

Elizabeth does all this while working full time, and designing jewelry. She even covers the cost of postage and envelopes, it doesn’t get much more generous than that.

I do know she could use some tape for herATG gun and pop dots. I confess, I have no idea what either are, but if anyone has extra tape or pop dots to donate I know it would be going for a very good cause.

If you’re interested in finding out what cards are available for purchase stop by Animal Scraps for all the details.

Elizabeth, we give you five out of five paws.
