Manly Journals

I needed to make some manly type journals. I really like the way these turned out. I used various files from www.svgcuts.com. I will be bringing these journals to the Cancer Center to give to cancer patients.

Journals of Love for Cancer Patients

I am so excited to share this wonderful new with you all. I recently called my local cancer center to talk to them about donating journals to the cancer patients. They were so thrilled and thought this was a wonderful idea. I have a meeting with the doctor and the marketing team Thursday. I am busy making some journals and cards to bring with me. Here are two that I made tonight.

This first journal I used items that I received from various SWAPS I have been a part of in the past. I have a box full of my wonderful treasures from fellow crafters. I decided what better way to showcase their wonderful art. I am sooo sorry to the ones that made these embellishments I forgot to add you names with the pieces. If it is yours please let me know so I can give you the proper credit.

The hummingbird journal is made using various files from www.svgcuts.com. The hummingbird is a free svg file on their blog, www.svgcuts.com/blog.
The cute shaplies are from www.pennyduncancreations.blgospot.com

If you would like to join me in this wonderful cause you can email me at celeste@touchedbyabutterfly.com and I can give you my address and you can send journals to me to distribute to my cancer center or make some journals yourself and deliver to a cancer center in your area….
A special thanks goes out to my wonderful friend Shirley Nagel. She is the on that started Journals of Love…

Pay It Forward



I found the this post over at Yolie’s blog www.justyolie.com and decided to join another Pay It Forward. Here's how it works:

"Pay It Forward" is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share.

"I promise to send an original creation to the (1st) 5 people who leave a comment here. They must, in turn, post this on their blog, and send something they make to the 1st 5 people who comment."

Here's what you need to do:

1. Leave a comment on this post. I will send a handmade gift to the first 5 commenters.

2. Create a post on your blog offering the same.

3. Send a handmade item to your first 5 commenters.

4. It must be sent to your 5 people by end of the year.

Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!
