Feeling like someone has tied my life to a speed boat these days. There are so many things going on, some amazing, some very challenging. Things got really crazy on Saturday. I called a time out to bring some sanity and peace back into my life by making paper butterflies and bringing out my fall decorations. Working with my hands and concentrating on something creative helped tremendously.
I had this perfect blue and gold paper for the butterflies. I used a double layer of it with a wire frame in the middle, so I could bend the butterflies and make them look like they had just landed on the wall.
Then I got distracted by the back of this chair. What is it about an old chair with good bones? Seriously, I'm a sucker for these.
A bit more whimsy is what the butterflies needed. I love this sweet little girl in her mama bird mask.
This little guy loves swinging from chandeliers. It's always a challenge to catch him and box him back up at the end of the season. If you like the paper butterflies, stay tuned. I'll be posting on how to make them in a few days.
