DIY: Butterfly white framed

I have been  eye shopping for some time now this beautiful butterfly picture  but it is so expensive that I had to work out how to reproduce it... in less expensive ways...!
You can find the  original butterfly white picture here.

It is beautiful, but so out of our budget...
So I worked out a way to do a similar one... It just requires a lot of patience! Basically, you have to cut around 100 white butterflies, and glue them to a large white card board in a way that reproduces a heart shape. Then, just cut a single red butterfly and glue it as well. The final step, just frame the final collage! I simply bought an Ikea Ribba Frame 50x50 that allowed this 3D collage.
And here is the final product:

 Now it is just waiting to be hanged in our living room wall!

Another Fabric box!

I need several fabric boxes to storage....all the little things that keep piling up and appearing from  nowhere...!Particularly all these plushs....
So, with my brand new fabrics, I started sewing one:
I followed a tutorial by make it and love it, I did a few changes, so I didn´t follow the tutorial completely to the letter... Since I will be making more boxes, I will later on post about every step I followed and the changes... But you can find the tutorial from make it and love here.
And here are a few snapshots from my first rectangular fabric box!

More boxes soon to come....

More fabrics to play!

Today I had the most lovely day!
I  went to Salisbury, and even though it was really cold today (yes, winter time finnaly arrived) the sun showed up throughout most of the day. But for me, the most fun part was... fabric shopping!
Salisbury has several fabric shops.... and each one with the most lovely and cute fabrics! 
So I couldn´t resist, a bought several fabrics today. I already have several projects to start, and so these fabrics are coming in really handy....:

   I am also getting ready for Christmas time... My decorations these years are mostly white and silver, and when I found these christmas theme fabric, I just had to have it... 
I can´t wait to start these new projects!
