Paper Butterfly Sprays

These paper butterfly sprays are so much fun to design! While working with them I had a few ideas on how to use them. Here are just a few ideas: paper butterfly wreath (foam wreath base), tuck them into your Christmas garland, have some fluttering on the Christmas tree, use them at place settings, on cards, presents, wrap around flowers in your house... I could go on!
Have a great week! I am just a few sales away from magical 100!! It is so surprising and I am looking for Etsy heart number 500 :-) Wish me luck!

Butterfly Desk Art

I have always loved a good quote! The quote on this spool is "Dwell in possibility" by Emily Dickinson. It is nice to see something positive on the counter or in a little corner to make you smile during the day!!

Friday Feature ~ Beach Cottage Studio ~
One of my all-time favorite shops on Etsy is Beach Cottage Studio. The shop owner, Kristine, is fantastic and so creative! I really admire her work. In fact, she made me a custom order of some holiday butterflies for my packages that are simply gorgeous! Not only are Kristine and I on the same Etsy Team, TeamSC, but we both live in Charleston! If you get a chance, check out her awesome shop at
