The Butterfly project

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 here 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.

  1. Thanks for showing this Teresa. Can you believe I live almost in Houston and didn't even know about it! duh! Shows you how much I get out! I'm for sure going to send a butterfly to Trudi. Don't have a clue about which medium to use yet. Have you decided?

  2. Haven't decided yet either. Maybe something in fabric. Glad that you decided to join as I think it is a great thing.

  3. Oh - another wonderful gesture to make yet another day one I approach with joy thanks to you and other warm and caring souls that have responded. Thank you so much!
