I've posted before about my girls and their butterfly attraction. I hope it will never end. "Butterfly" was one of Evangeline Hope's first words (thanks to big sis).
Just down the street, our friends have a sunny patch and planted a lovely butterfly bush that has been attracting the monarchs like crazy during this migration. We always stop to take a peak at the current monarch situation. Miss Lily keeps a running count of the number of monarchs she has spotted each season and we have an expression - "good eye" - for who spots one first. This little guy dropped by on Sunday.
I wanted to make a finger puppet to continue the magic once the migration ends. So I was excited to discover this tutorial over at Aesthetic Outburst. Rather than French knots, I opted to use Abbey's easy white puffy paint alternative - since I already had some of this stuff left over from the felt cinnamon buns project!
Enjoy the migration and have a lovely weekend. Be sure to check out all the projects at
