The Crazy Suburban Mom: Filofax Charms for donations

Filofax Charms for donations


For an explanation as to why I'm doing this please scroll down to the bottom of the page.


I'm not going to charge a set amount for items on this page but ask for donations instead.  What they cost me to make varies depending on materials, shipping cost ( somewhere between two and three US dollars) and  paypal costs:  between three and four percent of the amount plus a $.30 per transaction fee.

Please set your own price for items on this page using the above as a guide so it's not costing me to make them for you.  For other charms please check etsy, I just started listing there.


 I need to at least cover my costs/fees to make this work.    Anything you send beyond my costs will make a huge difference in the lives of Ginger, Ventura, and I.


Note:  I will try and update immediately.  If two people buy one charm I will send to the first person and refund the other.

Cornflower blue and purple filofax charm

This one has been spoken for!  Thank you




Metallic taupe, bronze, and gold rhinestone filofax charm

This one has been spoken for. Thank you for your generosity Rebecca!  We thank you :)


Dark teal foil and sea foam filofax charm

This one is about 3 cm / 1.2 inches long (minus the length of the strap).  The beads are a combination of a light, translucent seafoam green and dark teal.  The larger of the teal beads is lined with foil giving it a subtle sparkle.

If you want this one you can use the donate button below but it's not attached to any particular charm - please leave me a note in paypal to tell me which one.



Pink single bead filofax charm

This one is simpler.  The bead is a light shimmery pink, shaped like a thick coin and twisted.   I'm not sure of the name used for these kinds of beads and if you want a different picture, I can email you one.  The length of the charm (minus the strap) is just a scooch over 5 cm / about 2 inches.









Why I'm doing this...

I've added this page to help defray the monthly medical costs for Ginger and Ventura which amount to several hundred dollars each month.   I love them both dearly and want to do all I can for them.




Ventura is a registered therapy dog and we visit nursing homes, adult day care centers, and (soon)assisted living facilities.
 Beyond regular vet care Ventura is on several medicines daily for pain and inflammation related to a racing injury he suffered on the track.  The break was left untreated for several months and he's needed four surgeries on his right back leg so far.  He wears a custom orthopedic brace that will hopefully stop the muscle atrophy in that leg and will delay  further surgeries by preventing his join from collapsing any further.




Ginger, my little girl, is twenty now and having a whole host of medical issues.  She is currently on medicine for seizures, liver disease, arthritis, chronic gum infections, and dementia.  She still loves relaxing on the deck in the hot, hot summer (The hotter the better). She's much stiffer now but gets around well.  Her cataracts are very bad and she doesn't see (or hear) well anymore but I'm trying to give her at least one more lazy summer on the deck.





Another way to help Ginger and Ventura is by making your Amazon purchases using MY AMAZON AFFILIATE  LINK.

You can use this link to make any and all purchases on Amazon. It won't cost you anything extra and I'll make a small amount for sending you there.  


If there continues to be interest, I will keep making them and if donations work I won't change anything.  If it doesn't I'll update and perhaps move to etsy or ebay.  I'm trying to avoid doing that because there are additional fees involved.

I want to thank everyone for all the sweet feedback about Ginger and Ventura here on my blog, as well as on yourtube and facebook.   They ended up in my videos as a fluke but so many people ask where they are when I don't show them.... Warms my heart.
