Entering the monthly Etsy for Animals Challenge is a fun way to participate in the EFA street team. Every month there is an opportunity for EFA members to submit one of their listings to be featured on the blog. Each month has a specific theme which the listing must reflect in some way.
The monthly challenge blog provides a lovely display of goods presented by our artists & suppliers. Its a wonderful marketing opportunity for our sellers and also the mini feature tells us how they contribute to aiding our animal friends.
January's theme was "January Jackpot" where we needed to incorporate gold or have the color gold in our products. LolaLynn, our EFA Monthly Challenge administrator, put together a treasury with some of our entries...

WSPA has been promoting animal welfare for more than 25 years. Our work is concentrated in regions of the world where few, if any, measures exist to protect animals.
WSPA’s work is focused on four priority animal welfare areas:
- Companion animals – responsible pet ownership, humane stray management and cruelty prevention.
- Commercial exploitation of wildlife – intensive farming and the cruel management and killing of wild animals for food or by-products.
- Farm animals – intensive farming, long distance transport and slaughter of animals for food.
- Disaster management – providing care to animals suffering as a result of man-made or natural disasters, and thereby protecting people’s livelihoods"

I'm a French Canadian artist who lives in a beautiful old house in a small village by the St-Lawrence River a few miles away from Quebec City, Canada.
I don't want to over-exploit our planet. Fashion, for me, is a way of expressing himself. Every person is unique and the hand-made clothes reveal our personality in a unique way!
I like to use my creativity to produce my quilt and cute friends which respect the environment. All my products are maded with recycled fabrics. These fabrics are pre-consumer recycled. They result from rests of cutting (table waste) of manufacturers and from designers. Only products in jeans are made from pair of recycled jeans. "
