Butterfly Effect UPDATE 5! Video, children and more!

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With another week into our Butterfly Effect project, I`m very excited to let you know,  butterflies continued to arrive bringing our total now to  an even THIRTY!  This week brought the arrival of butterflies from the United Kingdom, the USA and Canada and from these warm and loving people -

Colleen Gannon
Nate Gannon
Brooke Gannon
Carol Henley
June Macfarlane
Frieda Oxenham
Kimberly Rogers
Patty  Szymkowicz


Not only did the varied mediums continue to surprise me (hand blown glass, broken mirror, beautiful fabrics, and assemblage, and other textures and materials I can`t even identify!) but we had our first two butterflies from Nate and Brooke Gannon  ages 3 and 7.  A very special thank you to this brother and sister team and to their Mom Colleen who I leaned on to participate. 

Below,  snapshots of Nate and Brooke busily creating their butterflies -

And one other FIRST I was delighted to see, not only to help spread the word about this project but also because it is just AMAZING and just simply entertaining  to watch this video.  SUZI BLU not only created a fantastic mixed media butterfly, (see below)  but she videoed the process which you can view here.     And,  ANOTHER first - Suzi`s finished butterfly landed on her cat!  Thank you so much Suzi!  I look forward to the opportunity to see it firsthand!

On to the arrivals this week ......Here they are just freshly out of their envelopes....again catching their breath...

I am loving the variety in these butterflies and hope in the end we get to see one photo of all of them together before you send them all in.
