No Screen Thursday

Yesterday was my no screen day and this is some of what I managed to achieve simply by not watching the tele or turning on my beloved computer.  I am still making butterflies for the Butterfly Project and this is the one I started yesterday for Elle.  Totally different from Lucas's butterfly.   I want tis one to be all girly and pretty, just like Princes Elle aka Sweet Pea.

I cut out my butterfly in two different patterns of card and glued them together.  Then I hot glued the flowers and beads on.  Now that was fun I had that darn stringy hot glue everywhere, I swear it was like mozzarella cheese, strings of it all over my fingers arghh!!
I painted the back of Lucas's butterfly too and added his name, using the tip of my paint brush.  See I really am not very arty, but I don't really mind I just want them each to have a butterfly hanging up with all the others in Houston.  Elle comes today so I probably won't get into my studio, she tends to steal all my time haha! Not complaining mind you.
I also took these photos......
A rose from our garden that dried up and looked so lovely still I kept it, with the intention of photographing it, of course as soon as I picked it up it fell apart, so I made a rose out of the remains.

Oh and i picked up these little cuties, Quatamalan worry dolls the other day.  I thought they would be cute to photograph, but before I could do too much they took off on their magic carpets.
I hope when they return they have tales to tell.

So no screen day was a success I look forward to my next one.  Why don't you give it a go.
Off now to get ready for my Princess to arrive oh how I love Fridays.
