Pecho the Breast Cancer Owl

Pecho the Breast Cancer owl tries her best to help others out, whether it be an ear when things are tough or a soft snuggle when you feel lonely... she is there for you!

an etsy group I'm a part of, etsyowls is doing a fundraiser for Octobers Breast Cancer Awareness month! Each of us agreed to create something that was pink and donate it to be 100% donated to the breast cancer research charity of the group's choice. We all worked hard and I'll be posting some of the other group member's items later on :) right now I'm just so proud of myself and this little owl. Pecho wants to be loved and to help out those who are fighting, have fought, and those who have lost in the fight for breast cancer.

Shes small, made of yarn and love, fits in the palm of your hand or the curve of your neck to keep you safe at night. She would also fit wonderfully in holiday gift bags for others! Filled with polyfill, the same material used to stuff stuffed animals, she is super squishy and loveable.

Purchase her for $10 here:

also check out the other owls and their works! they will ALL be posted in that shop!

I just need to rant and rave!


I'm currently undergoing my teaching education in college and I've started looking to etsy not just for my usual goodies, but for what I can bring into my future classroom as a new, fun, and exciting teacher.

I stumbled upon Minorthreads shop and was AMAZEEEDDDD!!!

they have these ADORABLE felt brooches with terms like "rad" "winner" and "sweetness". It got me thinking, that I could buy them in bulk and pass them out to EVERY student. Because any student who attempts to gain in his/her knowledge is super "rad" and a "winner" in my book. so I've been keeping a close on Minorthread to make sure they don't escape me in a few years time.

The other seller I wanted to rant and rave about was ohkayk.

These are wonderful quote signs but written in the form of eye charts. I will definitely be buying some of these to adorn my classroom with as an inspiration to all the students. And how unique will they look surrounded by maps and historical figures of old and modern days!

please go check out these shops, they truly are wonderful sellers here on etsy, and I hope to someday do plenty of buisness with them in the future. Will be on a constant look out for more things for my classroom!
