The Butterfly Effect


 The Butterfly Effect

My dear friend Trudi at Two Dresses Studio, wrote a post last week that touched my soul to it's very core. Trudi's post spoke eloquently of a beautiful project sponsored by the Holocaust Museum in Houston, Texas. The project speaks of love and hate and educates people about the Holocaust. This wonderful art project honors both victims and survivors.

You may not know that 1,500,000 children died in the Holocaust. The Butterfly Project will honor their memory by collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies that will be exhibited at the Museum in the Spring of 2013. Can you imagine how stunning and meaningful this will be?

If you'd like to read more about this amazing art project, or if you'd like to participate (I hope you do!), please visit Trudi's blog by clicking here or click on The Butterfly Effect button in my sidebar.

May your day be filled with many blessings and much love!

That is a gorgeous Picture Terri, and an honorable project. I will go take a look.
Thank you sooooo much for your loving words Terri. I know if I pull all the love from you and my fellow blog friends, I will be okay.
Big hugs to you, and big love!

Terri, thanks so much for making us aware of this, I will go and take a look. It would be wonderful to make a butterfly for something as special as this. Several of my relatives died during the holocaust so it touches me on a personal level also..

When I see your art, I see bright colors and gaiety. It always brightens my Sunday evenings. This was so much different, so sobering, so thought provoking.

For years I've been on a mission to erase hate in my lifetime. I only hope that will happen and this project might go a long way toward that end, especially with all the hate groups that have popped up over the last three years. Thank you for pointing me to this project. I've checked it out and plan to participate. You are such a sweetheart for bringing this to our attention.

I signed up for this project right away, as soon as I saw it. I think this is such a worthwhile endeavour. Only by remembering past atrocities can we keep history from repeating itself. Just IMAGINE what all of these butterflies will look like in one place!!! It'll be stunning!

What a wonderful display this will make. History must never, never repeat itself in the case of the holocast. I'm glad you have brought it to our attention.

Love your digital piece for this Terri, and I was here earlier then got lost at Trudi's site and forgot to come back and thank you for pointing us in the right direction. This is wonderful isn't it?
I can't get the animated logo to work, I see you chose the other one, that's probably what I will do now.

Hi Terri,
I've got some catching up to do on your blog {and blogging in general!}. What an outstanding project...earlier this summer I read the book Sarah's Key which was a fictional account, but historically accurate portrayal of the Holocaust. I will definitely have to take part in this project. Thank you for featuring it! Xo, Sue
