Metamorphosis

So I am not allowed to vacuum
or lift laundry
or the dog :(

So what's a girl to do? 
I do a little. Fold towels, turn on the dishwasher....
I know what you are thinking..."You go girl!"


But today I decided to look at my Pinterest
 craft board and actually try something. 

I found a free printable of a vintage butterfly.
I printed it on an old Russian Primer that was falling apart.


I love the way it looks on burlap...

....or the over-sized manila tag (top photo)


I love it here on the mirror in the fireplace room. Ready to fly away.

Maybe this time home is meant
to be a 
time of reflection...
a transformation of the spirit.

I am so glad I finally made something from my craft board!

  7. That recuperation time is good for inspiring all those other things you might not normally have time for. I just love this, the colors and the print from the book page, the burlap, all of it together. I am saying "you go girl!"
