(14) Butterfly donations

August 5, 2011

A stack of butterfly donations came in today. Seven packages were hand delivered to me with a "thank you for your business" from the mailman.

How's that for customer service?

There's even a butterfly from Russia in that stack! Check out the blue box.

Artist Jean Conner made butterflies with a group of friends and sent a big box filled with 13 mosaics! Here's what was included with her shipment...

That's a lot of butterflies!

Artist Silva Hayes sent along four more small butterflies to fill in gaps in the mural. She already donated three beautiful butterflies two weeks ago. The ones below are made with stained glass (some iridescent) and jewelry parts.

Artist Cindy Sbrissa donated two butterflies...

Her tiger face butterfly was inspired by a tattoo that she has on her ankle.

She also donated this butterfly made with stained glass, millefiori and acrylic doll eyes! Gotta get a bunch of those!

My house is starting to look like a butterfly incubator. There are butterflies all over the place!

I definitely have my work cut out for me at this point. I'll be updating this blog with all of the artists' names and then I'll be cutting butterflies away from the mesh backing. (That's my least favorite part...did I mention that?)

Still more butterflies on the way!
