Ozarknana and Tilly

Today I am going to feature a very special lady and her newest creation! Ozarknana is a retired grandmother of 9 from Gravois Mills. Her passion is sewing and creating.

She is one of the newest members of the Etsy Angels team and she is a great addition to our family. She is always there for promotions, fund raisers and events. Ozarknana is a very friendly, caring person.

Her shop ByNanasHands features stuffed plush, toys that are crafted with babies safety first and foremost. There are no removable parts, all decoration is machine embroidered and there are no hard parts on any of my toys, no plastics and no paints.

Ozarknana has created a very special plush toy for the children...the Purple Tilly Tilly is a turtle and she represents the Anderson House...a shelter for abused Women and Children that the team is raising money for....Tilly will help the women and children come out of their shell like the Anderson House will do for them.

There have been 7 Tillys sold up to date for the Anderson House and Ozarknana is donating 50% of the proceeds.

The Anderson House and I would like to thank you for all you are doing for them! This is a very worthy cause!

All the Etsy angels are doing a great job fundraising for the Anderson House!

Great feature Mona! Ozark is a super Angel, and we're all so glad to have her in our group.

I love Tilly. I've purchased a green one for my niece...and I'm feeling the need for a purple one for myself!

Wonderful feature on Ozark! Tilly is so adorable and Ozark is the definition of an Angel (even when her halo slips a little)!

Wonderful Quotes to live by!
