The Butterfly Effect Update #19

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just when I thought there couldn't possibly be another way to create and design a butterfly, the below group photograph of 28 butterflies arrived in the mail. A huge thank you to Jennifer Rogers-Daniels, the first art blogger/elementary school teacher to complete a class project on the Holocaust Museum Houston's Butterfly Project. I am delighted to know that these 28 Grade Two students each had the lesson on Ending Hatred via this meaningful project. Thanks to Jennifer.

 Some of the children didn't sign the back of their butterflies, so I've decided to not label each individual butterfly.

And the same day, this precious butterfly from Kim (IMAGIRL) arrived as well!  All in all a great MAIL day!

Seeing the latest collection of fabulous butterflies and hearing the stories always makes my heart sting, Trudi. Bless all of those children . . . what a beautiful lesson. They're lucky to have such a wonderful teacher. Hugs, Terri xoxo

I've been meaning to tell you that I was so excited for you when I saw your work in the current issue of Somerset Apprentice. I was even more excited when I saw it was one of your skinny page projects that I love so much. I think those are so stunning. I hope things are good for you and I hope your new year is off with a wonderful bang.

These newest butterflies are wonderful. I especially love the ones the children at school have made and sent. That class teacher has heart and those students will all learn from this simple gesture. Happy Spring and Birds Who Sing...

Such lovely butterflies especially Kim's. I made one then went back to read the instructions (always doing things backwards like that). And realised I'm not supposed to use glitter - I had rhinestones on mine.
Well will try again.
