Butterflies & Beyond

Im always asked what inspires you. One of my favorite inspirations is:
 ჱܓƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ  Butterflies Inspire Me Daily ܓƸӜƷ
Unknown Artist, A walk in a field of butterfly trees, Imagine the inspiration. Amazing!

ܓƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ When I Create With Butterflies I Relax and I Truly Feel Peaceful ܓƸӜƷ

Butterflies are Breathtaking, Inspiring, Free and Worry Free. Wouldnt it be amazing to be a Butterfly?  Never have to worry about a bad hair day or gas prices. Just lift you wings and fly wherever your heart takes you. Take your time, just glide around, enjoy the simple things around you, smell the flowers. Hmm Maybe we all could learn some things from butterflies.


ܓƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ My New Favorite Butterfly Photo ܓƸӜƷ
I am not sure who painted this or where it came from It was in a random group of photos when I was looking for butterflies a few months back in butterfly clip art. Its lovely. If anyone knows anything about it let me know. I would love a print. It reminds me of my daughter Ashley when she was little. We went to Sea World and it was so hot her hair turned all curly like this. She is beautiful just like this fairy and the butterflies.

ܓƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ My First Favorite Butterfly Picture ܓƸӜƷ

This photo means alot to me. Everytime I look at it, it reminds me of my sister. She is an angel in heaven. She passed away in a car accident in 1997. She love lilacs and these look like lilacs. Both of us like butterflys amongh other things. The funny thing about lilacs is. She loved them but I used to wear lilac deodorant, teen spirit used to have a lilac one and she hated it. She said the smell of it ruined the smell of pretty flower. LOL  So when I smell or see lilacs I think of her, how she loved them but hated smelling my pits. LOL. I know right now she is rolling her eyes at me. But I love her bunchs. When I create with butterflies I think of her alot. I dont know why but Im relaxed when I create with them. They bring me peace and they are lovely.
