Here's a little closer picture, although the pins are really hard to see. There is a huge hole in the middle of the country. Where there are zero pins between Reno & Kansas City...so it is definitely a west and east coast dominated show. Guess it just helps me decide where I need to go next!

So I don't know exactly what's gotten into me, but I have definitely been in project mode. Since the jewelry project I also redid the old bulletin board my jewelry was on and created a fabric/map piece that shows everywhere I've traveled in the US. I'll have to get a pic of it up here soon.
But then I've also been working on some fun paper/canvas project. I had these canvases and didn't really know what I wanted to do with them, and then saw a picture of a single butterfly cut out of paper in a frame on etsy and was inspired. I decided to try my hand at it! And took a butterfly I found online and then made copies in different sizes, so that I could have a larger butterfly and along with some smaller ones. I then debated between using fabric (what the etsy one was made with), contact paper or just paper and a glue stick. Yup, you guessed it it was paper & a glue stick....add in the canvases I already had and these two art pieces ring in at FREE!!! Gotta love that!
So along with my scissors and razor blade I just cut out some butterflies while I was watching movies this week and ta da! I have two new pieces of art in my bedroom! Did I mention I also love how they turned out?! I'm kind of impressed :)
This is where the first canvas ended up...right above the shelf, right next to my bedroom door. I LOVE how this canvas turned out...none of the butterflies are out of exactly the same paper, but they are all very similar and I think compliment each other very nicely! It helps to have a seemingly endless supply of scrapbook paper around :)
I'd kind of like to rest this canvas on a shelf above my nightstand rather than have it directly on the wall. I also think I'd like it better framed, there just seems to be too much white, but we'll see. For now this is it!
