Some thoughts for Summer, Nature, and Inspiration!

I've stumbled upon the passages below a few times each now.  Each resonates inside of me for a different reason and has such inspirational qualities.  I had to share them with you all.  I hope that you enjoy them and can find something magical!

"The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful." - e. e. cummings

"How strange that nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude!" - Emily Dickinson

"The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do." - Galileo Galilei

"Use what talent you possess - the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best." - Henry Van Dyke

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." - Albert Einstein

"Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience."

Creating a fluttery Butterfly!

For my most recent "Alter It Monday" post at Posh Designs, I created this Butterfly! 


You can see the step by step tutorial on the Posh Designs Blog located here.

I'm thinking of creating a whole collection of these butterflies to hang in my Living Room window as I can't keep a plant alive for anything!  At least these butterflies will not eat much! 

Have a great day!
