Butterflies and Pink Saturday.....

Good Morning and Happy Pink Saturday to everyone!! Thank you to Beverly for hosting Pink Saturday's. Please stop by her blog How Sweet the Sound and look at some amazing blogs, talent, and just some real nice people.

My post today is centered around The Butterfly Project. After the shooting at the Holocaust Museum recently, a wonderful project already in progress came to light and Craft Critique has become part of that by gathering as many butterflies as possible to send to the museum as part of a Spring 2012 exhibit in remembrance of the 1.5 million children who were lost in the Holocaust.Please read about that HERE and from HERE The goal set by the Project itself is 1.5 million butterflies.

When I first read the information I understood it to mean that we could send a project - later I read what appears to be - they want just butterflies. Either way, my little plaque is going to be sent and they can do what they want with it. I will make a single (or more)butterfly and post that later.



Have a wonderful and Happy Pink Saturday!!

Hi sweetie - I'm not doing PS today, but was just stopping by to say hello to you and to see how you are doing.

I love your project, so sad about the violence. You are an angel. I've been crazy busy which I'm grateful for.

What a wonderful cause dru and this plaque is such a nice gift for them. I'm sure it will get used. Thankyou for letting us know about this. I was saddened to read of the shootings when it first aired. *...sigh....* will it ever end?

I think it's a wonder cause and a project. You displayed your butterflies so pretty. And I'm sure they will have a place in the exhibit.

Happy Pink Weekend!
