The butterfly effect- on my small joints

please note: any random capital letters indicate a curse word which I am trying not to use in any posts about Leah’s baby as she is a good person and might read these.

So, phase 2 begins.

I started the actual baby present, as guess who decided to show up Friday night?

You guessed it. Leah’s baby!

We are still having the shower as planned, with the same Ready to Pop theme, regardless of the stress it causes me for something to be so blatantly incorrect. But it’s not always about me, or what I want, so things will go as planned. There will just be a baby there. The proverbial popcorn.

Point of this post? The beginnings of her present. Well, at least this present.
No one wants to see how I make a diaper cake. Tres boring.

I decided to fade white to pink, then when I saw the accidental affect the S brush I was using caused, I liked it better. Looked like clouds.





So the dreaded part was turning this

Into a bunch of butterflies.

So instead of using a punch, or different sized punches, I made patterns


And cut them out. And now I wonder why I can barely flip a pancake as my arthritic joints are angry with me and causing my hand to cramp like a B.



So I’m there. And I just remembered
I still have to color them, which I should’ve done before.

    That is dedication to the max! Proper suffering for ones art. Entirely worth the pain though. Looking amazing already. Such a cool idea šŸ™‚
