The Butterfly Effect

This was brought to my attention by my friend Anna yesterday and I thought it was too beautiful, too simple and important to ignore. Please do take a moment to read up on the project, maybe you too will craft a little butterfly, send it to America and help make a beautiful memorial to all the children who perished in the Holocaust.

We all adore this wonderfully complex and ethereal insect that flits through life and brings such joy and beauty. They are happy visitors to our allotments and gardens and many of us adore to simply watch their seemingly random and excited journey's through the flowers, pollinating as they go. Now we can do something a little more with that love of such a humble little creature....

Simply click the picture... thank you xx


  1. I have also read that the children in the camps left drawings of butterflies ...

  2. Oh yes, Diana, I have been to the Aschwitz camps and read a lot about the issue.

  3. Carrie,

    This is such a cool idea. I copied one of the butterflies and will do my best at colorizing it. I may even follow-up with a post about this.

    Thanks for sharing this. I do hope you're feeling better today:~)

  4. Hi Carrie,
    I wanted to drop by and thank you for joining in with us to add to this important exhibit! It's such a great reason to create art.
