Beaded Butterfly Clip Decoration

Yes, I'm still alive...I've just been very busy with work and we headed to New Brunswick for a few days to visit Jim's folks up in the land of snow for March Break. We had a good trip and it was a nice break from the 60+ hour weeks that I've been working lately, along with taking care of the kids. That's why I haven't had the chance for any crafty play. When I am home, I'm generally too tired to do much of anything but relax and watch tv. Oh well, just another couple of months and my 2nd contract job will be done and life will get back to normal.

I'm planning to get in some crafty time after I get some work done from home today. We're having another storm today. We got about 20 cms of snow last night and we're supposed to get that much again today, as far as I know. It's still snowing out now and it sucks really, 'cause the ground just got clear of snow and ice and here we are again! Anyway, I have to put in at least 5 hours on my computer before earn crafty time, though! lol :)

For now, I just wanted to share a pic of a pretty beaded butterfly decoration that my youngest daughter bought for me for Xmas. I keep meaning to post it 'cause I think it's so darn pretty, but I keep forgetting to. I wasn't sure where to put it and she just clipped it on this picture frame on my nightstand by my bed and I love it there. It makes me smile every time I see it. :)

Here's a close up of the butterfly's wing and body so you can see the sparkly beads a bit better. It really is very pretty as it shimmers so much in real life. I love it! :) The whole butterfly is about 8" x 8".
Thanks for all the requests from everyone asking if I'm ok...since it's been a couple weeks since I've posted anything. You're all so funny. You just have to be patient a little while longer, I'll be back soon with some more eye candy for you. I've got some new stamps to show you, so I'll play with those and make a card.

Ok, I've gotta shut this down and jump on to my work server and get some work done. Expect a card from me later on tonight. :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Hi Julie,

Love your blog and your cards! What is you do for a job outside the home? You have me curious?
