Notes from the artist :
Ever need a small, grab and go kind of bag? Then this little ditty is just for you! The name was taken off of the pattern we used, and it fits the item well.

Beautiful autumn colors are interspersed throughout the bottom of the ditty, with a deep chocolate brown covering the top. This little ditty measures 8″ wide and 6″ deep, perfect to fit your necessities for a quick trip around town!

It was carefully crocheted in a smoke-free environment, and is a one-of-a-kind steal! You are guaranteed to be the only person who has a cute little ditty like this.

15% of the profit from this purse will be going to the Nebraska Humane Society.

The notes are 4.25 by 5.5 and blank inside.

I will personalize them on the front with a name or initial if you wish.

Great gift for the poodle lover!

June 2008 Charity of the Month

United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)

UNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realized. We have the global authority to influence decision-makers, and the variety of partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality. That makes us unique among world organizations, and unique among those working with the young.

We believe that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress. UNICEF was created with this purpose in mind – to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path. We believe that we can, together, advance the cause of humanity.

We advocate for measures to give children the best start in life, because proper care at the youngest age forms the strongest foundation for a person’s future.

We promote girls’ education – ensuring that they complete primary education as a minimum – because it benefits all children, both girls and boys. Girls who are educated grow up to become better thinkers, better citizens, and better parents to their own children.

We act so that all children are immunized against common childhood diseases, and are well nourished, because it is wrong for a child to suffer or die from a preventable illness.

We work to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS among young people because it is right to keep them from harm and enable them to protect others. We help children and families affected by HIV/AIDS to live their lives with dignity.

We involve everyone in creating protective environments for children. We are present to relieve suffering during emergencies, and wherever children are threatened, because no child should be exposed to violence, abuse or exploitation.

UNICEF upholds the Convention on the Rights of the Child. We work to assure equality for those who are discriminated against, girls and women in particular. We work for the Millennium Development Goals and for the progress promised in the United Nations Charter. We strive for peace and security. We work to hold everyone accountable to the promises made for children.

We are part of the Global Movement for Children – a broad coalition dedicated to improving the life of every child. Through this movement, and events such as the United Nations Special Session on Children, we encourage young people to speak out and participate in the decisions that affect their lives.

We work in 190 countries through country programmes and National Committees. We are UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund.

Notes from the artist :
I made these 4 Patriotic Notecards with Memorial Day and Independence Day in mind.

These cards are great to send to a soldier, veteran, a spouse of a soldier or any person to show your patriotism.

The cards are 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 and an envelope is included to go with each notecard. Each image is securely attached.

Notes from the artist :
Pink and purple, beautiful butterflies, soft and snuggly. Perfect for tummy time, play time, a day at the park, or for stroller rides on a not yet summer day.

I came up with this one while I was pregnant with my own baby girl. It’s fun to make (dutch windmill’s pattern), great to use, and compliments came every where we went.

This quilt has gorgeous fabric on the back as well as the front. 40 x 40 inches.
