The Butterfly Project...Revisited

The Lime Light group's ongoing project is making butterflies for The Butterfly Project. If you have never heard of it you can go to:

I made the two butterflies above using wire and beads. Now, I have a ton of beads and everything anyone could need to make project after project, but this is the first time I made something like this. I must say I really like the way they turned out and plan on doing some more.

I encourage anyone and everyone to get involved with the project and make some butterflies so the Holcaust Museum can meet their goal of 1,500,000 butterflies by 2013.
If you are a teacher, great project for the kids and they have lesson plans you can use in class.

Look what I got...

I decided to treat myself to something amazing...

It holds my Cricut cartridges & books & keypads. I have 34 cartridges and it holds 36 so I need to buy two more to fill it. LOL

It is so amazing. Go to www.CricutCartridgeStorage.com and check it out.

Getting Closer...

This is the project we are completing in my September Cricut class. This is a non-Cricut month and I will have all the templates you need. I found the box on one of the blogs I follow and I wish I could remember which one so I could give them credit. We will be using some of the new EK Success punches introduced at CHA this Summer. The paper is Dream Street.

The photos I used inside the box were from the first Camp Planet Hope I went to and took tons of photos. As soon as the class is over I will send it to Kelly.

Next week we are putting the house up for sale and the quest begins. Our Craft Sale last week was amazing and now I am figuring out what will happen with the rest. Some to auction, some to donations, some to Craig's list and some to EBay.

I am planning another sale at the end of September for the rest of my craft room I really have decided not to pack & take with us on the road. Unfortunately a 29 ft. 5th wheel has very limited space. :-(
