Let the Handmade Cat Parade Begin!

Welcome to the Handmade & Eco-Friendly Giveaway Hop, hosted by Happy Mothering, Easy Green Mom and Brittleby’s Corner through the Green Moms Network! To help raise awareness about the importance of giving eco-friendly and handmade gifts, we’re offering giveaways to help you get started (or continue) with your holiday planning. We hope you’ll discover some brands that would make wonderful gifts during the holiday season. After entering my giveaway, be sure to hop around and enter all of the other giveaways listed on the linky at the bottom of this post for your chance to win more handmade and eco-friendly giveaways!


After months of preparation, my new Etsy shop Handmade Cat Parade is opening its (virtual) doors!!!

In honor of our grand opening, I am doing a giveaway of one of the Cat Softie Dolls from my shop. I've joined up with the Handmade and Ecofriendly Holidays Giveaway Hop to promote ecologically and socially conscious gift-giving this holiday season.

This is Leo, not quite a lion, he is an upcycled little fellow that spent his previous incarnation as a t-shirt. Now he's as a cat softie doll instead...



Like all the other friendly little cat softies at Handmade Cat Parade he's made from eco-friendly and recycled materials.
