The year of the butterfly

Evie started preschool last fall. Her class, and all of the classes have cute little names, she happens to be in the butterfly room. And, I guess her fascination with butterflys started almost a year ago. She affectionately calls them ‘fireflys’ and she’ll probably accomplish the ‘B’ sound soon, but for now it’s cute. We did take her to the butterfly show at Khron Conservatory, but the real live critters weren’t to her taste. She did not like that one particular moth decided it liked my shirt and attached itself to me and had to be pried off.
So, it seemed natural that I use butterflys for the theme for her birthday party in January.
Note: I’m way behind on my blog workings, because of a month long bout with the crud going around, but we are all well now, and I’ve got lots to blog about.
So, here are some photos from Evie’s butterfly birthday, that carried on into Valentine’s Day.

This is her birthday invitation. I used a butterfly rubber stamp and then partially cut out the wings and folded them inward to make the card 3-D.

I found a cool butterfly punch to make the cupcake picks. I did try spraying glimmer mist on them, but you can't really see it in the photo. It made them look iridescent. I also folded them, then hot glued them to skewers. This party wasn't as elaborate as in the past, due to said crud.

The guest of honor.

Just after her birthday I discovered Pinterest and found this cool pattern for her Valentines. It was easy, but cutting them all out was time consuming. And, as brilliant as I thought I was, another parent did the same pattern. Oh well, it was fun and as I was signing Evie's name to them she realized that it was her name and promptly spelled it for me. I was very pleasantly surprised that she could spell her own name. Smart girl.

Until next time, when I promise I will get back to calligraphy.
