Monday Love: Paper-flower

The power of a paper flower ...

As Christmas is over and spring is not in sight yet, why not cheer the house up with some self-made paper flowers? They are easy to make - have a look here. And look how pretty the color of the paper shines when the light comes through! Monday hugs dear friends! Keep warm and cheerful - inner sunshine is so much needed this time of year!

  9. Martina,
    I'm so glad you enjoyed my post - link to Andy Andrews' presentation.
    Like you I am encouraged and awed by the Butterfly Effect. And you are in the middle of it, Martina, working with children and parents, teaching creative arts and inspiration, and the values of character. I truly believe that the fluttering of those butterfly wings matter more than all the conquests of Charlemagne.
    Your friend

  10. What a great idea! I still haven't taken down my Christmas tree because I'm afraid the space will be lacking and sad. This would brighten it right up :) xoxo


    You must have posted this after I left for work this morning. Don't you just love PAPER? I have been making some fun things with paper and it is so easy to work with! Are you feeling better dearest? I am finally feeling back to myself after over a month of coughing, sneezing and sniffles! We also still do not have any snow and it seems like spring!! Which feels good. The Butterfly Effect surely is an impressive video, isn't it my friend? Whatever we may believe varies with our cultures, religious background and upbringing. But one this seems to unite us all, and that is that KINDNESS and LOVE make us all feel better, can change the course of our lives, and really is what matters the most.
