Butterflies are Free


Trudi Sissons from Two Dresses Studio recently blogged about "The Butterfly Effect."


The goal of the project, sponsored by The Holocaust Museum Houston, is to collect 1.5 million handmade butterflies to remember and honor the 1,500,000 innocent children who perished as a result of the Holocaust. Trudi has generously decided to collect butterflies from the blogging community and forward them to the Museum. If you are interested in participating, you can read all the details and sign up on Trudi's blog by clicking here. The images in this post are photographs of my contribution to the project.

What a wonderful project- I'm participating also. Love your beautiful "free" butterfly! Its' so generous of Trudi to forward all of our butterflies to Texas for the Project! Just read that they have 400,000 butterflies already- not quite the 1.5 million goal, but they are well on their way! Thanks so much for posting about this special dedication to all of the children who have died in the holocaust.

That is one gorgeous butterfly! I sent out a few, and that project was one of the most fun and inspiring ones of all. I think I'll send more!

Lovely work by a lovely artist! I particularly like the evolution/mutation of The Chairman. Trudi always seems to exude a delightful sense of humour in her work. Thanks Seth!
