For the love of Butterflies

I can't believe it's been over 3 weeks since my last post  -- I knew I was going to be busy but I had no idea exactly how busy. CHA is coming up quickly -- as well as some new things on HSN (yes so excited about THAT) as well as a brand new Spellbinders Card Class at My Creative Classroom...oh and a free holiday class over there too -- and a collaborative Christmas Class -- phew. Way to pack it in.

Plus life. Yes there's always THAT. Life isn't always a bowl of cherries.

Since my new class is taking up so much of my head space I thought I'd share a quick little shot of a small part of one of the cards this week. I think it's ok to share this -- this is a little assemblage/embellishment sneakie peakie from Week 3. This was so much fun to create -- it uses one of my ALL TIME favorite things to craft with -- a butterfly -- and my second all time favorite thing -- my Spellbinders dies.

I also wanted to share some of my favorite quotes about butterflies that I found here and there on the internet.

The butterfly counts
not months
but moments,
and has time enough. 
~Rabindranath Tagore

If nothing ever changed,
there'd be no butterflies. 
~Author Unknown

Happiness is a butterfly,
which when pursued,
is always just beyond your grasp,
but which,
if you will sit down quietly,
may alight upon you. 
~Nathaniel Hawthorne

Love is like a butterfly: 
It goes where it
pleases and it pleases
wherever it goes. 
~Author Unknown

Thanks for stopping by, will try not to have such large gaps in between posts! Take some time to get crafty today!


  1. Wow!!!! Can't wait for Friday's class.

    My ATC workshop went well on Saturday - two sessions. They were all very impressed with the set of ATCs I made on your online course and particularly the book. We seem to have about 15 wanting to do a swap up here which is great.

  2. the blog world missed you!
