Our lives are songs; God writes the words and we set them to music at pleasure;

And the song grows glad, or sweet or sad, as we choose to fashion the measure.”

Ella Wheeler Wilcox


Choice, something that we all own. Yet it is not quite so simple sometimes. As things grow quiet in my Etsy shop I ponder on this endeavor and have chosen to plow ahead and just create as my heart tells me so. My grandaughter had an idea as she suggested I punch out pretty four inch butterflies with my Big Shot machine and butterfly die, then assemble them in groups of three or four, and use them in a mobile. I did this and I created one of the mobiles that I really like. So, assembled below, in groups of three or four, are the butterflies for my next mobile. I think I will title this new project “Symphony of The Flutter Bies” Mobile. Last night I punched out many butterflies from sheet music, black cardstock, and some rather fanciful black and red folders I had on hand. I glued the bodies of these butterflies together in clusters of four or more. I punched tiny holes in their heads and will now ponder some more as to how I will hang these ‘flutter bies’ in a mobile. Stay tuned; you may (or may not) want to miss the final curtain call.

From the west, have a great day!

    Beautiful! I love the butterflies. I cannot wait to see the final product.
