I've been slacking....

I know, I haven't posted all week.   Have you missed me?  Hope so.  It's been busy!  I've had two photo sessions last week, one more this week and I've been busy editing and getting my new photog blog all set up.  Be sure to check back tomorrow so you can see the grand reveal!

But back to crafts - I LOVE butterflies!  When I had my little girl I knew I wanted to do something with them.  She's 2.5 now and I STILL haven't finished her room.  But I am always browsing for new ideas.  Here are a few beauties that I have found and some I have created using some divine inspiration from others.

We all love Pottery Barn - and who wouldn't with beautiful rooms like these? 
I just drool over them and wish I could create the same feelings they evoke when I look at the magazines.  But I lack the funds so I turn to the internet for the same look for less! 

Here's a great DIY project you can do to make your own butterfly chandelier, just like the one seen above which is no longer available at PBK.  You can find the tutorial by clicking on the link.


I was inspired by Ali Edwards weekend creative project to create this punch collage. 
I used the same idea but put mine on a canvas - which still needs a really funky frame to go in, using Martha Stewart's Classic Butterfly Punch.


I made this piece last year using the 3-in-1 punch but I can't remember where I found the idea.  My computer has since crashed and I lost my favorties!!  Ugh.  So if you know who's idea it is, please leave me a comment so I can credit them for the idea! I actually used the paper that came in the 3-D frame.  I showed it to my son when I was finished and he said it kinda looks like the United States.  Ya know, it kinda does.  Ha!


Check out this massive butterfly tree wall art at DecorDesigns on ETSY.  BEAUTIFUL!
