Butterflies and Book Papers

Miss 7 and I are working on some butterflies for The Butterfly Project. I heard about it through Two Dresses Studio. Here is what I read there:

The Holocaust Museum Houston is dedicated to educating people about the Holocaust, remembering the 6 million Jews and other innocent victims and honoring the survivors' legacy. Using the lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides, we teach the dangers of hatred, prejudice and apathy.
The Butterfly Project mandate is to remember the 1,500,000 innocent children who perished as a result of the Holocaust  by collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies

To read more about it, go here.

Here are the butterflies we've made and will be sending in this week:

I've also been working on more handmade books and will share them when they are finished. This is the paper I am planning to use on the one I'm working on first.

And here is a look at the other papers I've located in my art room so far:

I'm a bit late getting around this morning. I decided to walk the treadmill first instead of after posting. 

I've had my coffee, exercised and posted to my blog, now it is time for a bite to eat and then I may get to work on my latest book.

I hope to see you tomorrow.
