The Butterfly Effect

In memory of the 1.5 million Jewish children who died during the Holocaust, the Holocaust Museum in Houston Texas is collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies for a special exhibit in 2012.

Can you imagine how beautiful that will be ?

Trudi at Two Dresses Studio, felt she wanted to spread the word about this project out into the art community of bloggers, and far beyond that too, and has organized an artist project to collect butterflies from as many of "us" as possible.

I knew right away I was in, I think this is a most beautiful way of spreading love throughout the universe, spreading love and making the hatred in the world less powerful.

If you are interested please click on the link in my side bar to find out more information from Trudi, and if you prefer to create and send a butterfly on your own here is a link to the information about the Butterfly Project in Houston.

I am thinking needle felted, or fabric from my vintage linen stash.
