Sandra Gunn found the butterfly. Hope she enjoys it and I am sure her charity will put the $250. to good use.

Thank you to the Carthaginian for helping support the drop  and everyone who went out on the hunt.

Everything at once


The month of Feb. was full. First there was the On line Watercolor Class for Card Makers…Intermediate Techniques. Really good information and good examples of the teaching principals. Then there was the Gratitude 52sketchbook project by Jennifer Frith that confirms  up to this point why I don’t scrapbook. It has been enlightening and thought provoking  just not my thing. Only proud of a couple of pages so far. Maybe it ,or, I will get better as we go. Next was Sandy Allnock’s Paintalong. Now I know I really need better supplies. Boy…my wish list at Simon Says and Ellen Hutson ( or is it Hudson) is growing.  Now it’s time for the Butterfly drop.

What is the butterfly drop? Awhile back Dina Kowal was ask to paint a butterfly for  the Butterflyeffectbethechange  organization. Of course her butterfly was beautiful as is all of her artistic creations. I thought…why not give it a try… so after getting in touch they sent me a blank wooden butterfly to paint, hide and let someone find  (hopefully) and then have $250. donated to the charity of their choice.  Next weekend is the drop. More information will be in the local newspaper on March 10 and the drop will be on March 12. I will post early clues on this blog on that day. Here is a picture of my creation.DSCN1497 Good luck to all who go for it and please let me know who you are.

Now…remember…This is the day the Lord made…rejoice and be glad.
