Oh my, I've been busy being a bad blogger again. I've gotten some projects done, gotten about halfway through my photoshop class, and have a creepy project that if I can get the pics right, I can't wait to work on. Way back there was a band called Marillion... I used to love them... I still do, and of late there has been a song that has been running through my mind, a song entitled Jigsaw particularly the line "Dream coins for the fountain, or to cover your eyes." and I have an idea in my head, but I'm having a little trouble with the photographs. I don't have a tripod, so finding a way to get my camera still and where I need it to take the shots is proving difficult... as is the lighting.
I am taking the time tonight, though, to upload this 12 x 12 of my little one for Hallowe'en 2008. I had a great time playing with a colour challenge and a weekly challenge over at www.scrapbook.com and I pushed some limits for myself. This is a lot more pattern than I usually use. I'm feeling a little too tired to give details on all this right now, but I'll edit soon and post the particulars. Hope y'all have been been making great things

Please facilitate the
“I Never Saw Another Butterfly” activity and create as many handmade arts-and-crafts butterflies as possible. This project may be completed by all ages as individuals or groups.
- Butterflies should be no larger than 8 inches by 10 inches.
- Butterflies may be of any medium the artist chooses, but two-dimensional submissions are preferred.
- Glitter should not be used.
- Food products (cereal, macaroni, candy, marshmallows or other perishables) also should not be used.
If possible, e-mail a photograph of your butterflies, to email@example.com.
Please send or bring your butterflies to the Museum by June 30, 2011, with the following information included:
- Your name,
- Your organization or school,
- Your address,
- Your e-mail address, and
- The total number of butterflies sent.
Mail or bring your butterflies to:
Holocaust Museum Houston
5401 Caroline St.
Houston, TX 77004
For questions or additional information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
this is such a wonderful idea... and surely, we all can make a few butterflies from the scraps in our stash... use your die cutter, paint some chipboard, make beaded ones, wire and ribbon... whatever it is you like to do... and drop them in the mail. (or if you happen to be in the Houston area, drop them off. ) So... here's what I'd like to know and see: how many of you will particpate in this project and what do your butterflies look like? Leave me a comment, and a link to your butterflies (they can be posted anywhere) and I'll post some here within the next week. I was so impressed with the bloggers and scrappers during the www.cardsforheroes.org bloghop ... so many people participating, and so many talented paper crafters giving and sharing, that I sure think we might be able to generate some real involvement . C'mon y'all... make a butterfly.
Angi is a Stampin' Up demonstrator and serves in the armed forces. I "met" her on the cardsforheroes bloghop and was instantly taken with her style, both as a blogger and a crafter. she is honest about her work and her life, and she really loves to share what she knows. if you've never seen her site, go give her a visit (and if you love Stampin' Up and need a rep, now you have one!) her blog address again is
