I know you can do a lot with digital cards. You can put sounds to it and make it more attractive and fun to read and/or to watch. But being me who loves handmades I still prefer the old and traditional cards to make my Christmas greeting more personal and special. And this is why I have this set of special Christmas cards made for my charity work. Proceeds from these cards I saved up and use to pay for the cost of sustaining my charity work which is self-funded. I use the funds to pay for the cost of distributing dresses to different locations for the new year for I believe there are disadvantaged kids who deserve to own a new dress. Please help me make a difference to the lives of these disadvantaged kids by purchasing any of these christmas cards to send to family and special people in your lives.
1) a fabric dress adhered to the card that represents what my charity work is all about
2) a donation card for any charity organization on behalf of someone
3) a christmas message of happiness and hope to anyone in your list
4) a christmas tree shaped by the words of Dress A Girl Australia's goal to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged kids.
Each card comes with a matching white envelope for easy gift giving. There is a blank inside panel for your personal message. Click on each of the images above for more details. You can buy a single card or in packs of 10 or in any number you want. Prices of cards are inclusive of postage costs. Check them out.
WIth Christmas fast approaching, I have made available some of my Christmas Fabric picture cards. They are pictures and/or images printed on 100% cotton and fitted inside window cutouts. Most cards, if not all, have blank inside panels for personalized messages. Some cards are one of a kind and in limited supplies for some. They come with matching envelopes for easy sending or gift-giving. Normaly they sell for $2.75 but for this Christmas season each card sells for a $1.50 plus postage of $.70.

Yesterday I looked into my personal fabric collections and decided to sell a few of my baby and kids fabric panels. These panels are great for softbooks and other quilting and baby projects. Here are a few of them and the complete line you can check out in my soft treasures e-shop. Just click here or click on the image below -
Please check them out and if there is anything you like to make a purchase. Proceeds from the sale of any of these items will help pay for the cost of sending the parcels for Christmas distribution.
There will be more of these panels including christmas ones and a few of my 100% quilting cottons to be up for sale in the next few days.
Last year when I was active in markets I made these Lavender Dresses to sell. Underneath the dresses are packs of about 40gms of lavender and comes with a miniature hanger to make it easy for anyone to hang the dress inside their cabinets. Dress size is about 10-12cms in length.
Now am putting it up for sale in my Dress A Girl e-shop as a Dress A Girl Australia specialty item. Designed and made especially for Dress A Girl Australia projects. Although sales from my e-shop are very, very slow I still have a lot of hope that once in a while I would make a sale and help sustain Dress A Girl Australia's activities. I know there are still people out there who believes in what I am doing even if I can no longer accept hundreds and hundreds of dresses to distribute. Sometimes one has to be realistic in what one is capable of especially financially. It is better to do it in small numbers and be happy about it than in hundreds and/or thousands and feel miserable about it. And that is how I feel about it these days now that am back to being in control of something I love doing. I may be making a lot of people unhappy but at least I know that I am able to sustain making a difference to other people's lives and feel very happy about it....in my own small way...one small dress at a time.
Each dress sells for $10.00 plus actual postage of $2.10 (total of $12.10). To check them out, click on the image above or click here.
