Butterfly Project update

I was delighted this morning to find an update on Trudi Sissons' blog that showcased a beautiful photo of my contribution to the Butterfly Project (below) as well as a photo of what my friend Joanna Urbani in the UK contributed; click here to read her post. Trudi has received over 400 butterflies from 18 countries! She will send them in to the Holocaust Museum in Houston, Texas at the end of this year for the upcoming exhibit at the museum, Spring of 2014. Trudi is winding down her part in the project, but you still have a full year to participate through the Holocaust Museum. They are accepting submissions through December 31, 2012. The museum has already collected over 900,000 hand made butterflies. Read more about this project/exhibit here on their site. I hope it is something you can do too.

    Thanks for the inspiration.
