Before I start, let me remind you to add a comment to my previous post if you want to enter the drawing for my tag!

My butterflies have been very popular on Etsy lately.   A couple of weeks ago I had an order for 6000 and I just got another request for 3000!  I usually sell them in packets of 100 so this was a BIG difference.  I have a lot of fun with them so I thought I'd share some of the things I've made with them.  But first, I was looking through my new September issue of Country Living last week and they have a great article about crafting with words and look at this photo!  Just like my butterflies.  (Some of mine are piled on top of the photo.)

This is the matchbook card that I made yesterday.  It's made the same as the ones in my Somerset article, just decorated differently.

And of course, tags!  I love making tags.

BTW, Lauren Skyped us this afternoon and gave us a tour of her apartment.  Way different than the dorm I stayed in in college.  It has 2 floors, she's on the bottom floor of their apartment which is actually the 3rd floor of the building -- make sense?  Each floor has about 8 girls, an office/study room, a bathroom, kitchen, and living room.  It looked nice from what we could tell.  Clean -- at least for now.  lol...  She has a couple of days of orientation and classes start on Wednesday.  I have her mailing address now, too, so if you don't have it yet email me and I'll send it to you.

Wow, 6000 is a lot of butterflies! How long did it take you to punch those???

I need Lauren's address. I thought she'd be in a dorm, but that sounds similar to a dorm - is it on campus?

That sounds almost like a Monarch migration!

How fun too see the college thru her eyes (and modern techonoloy!).

Love the butterflies!

Does Lauren have something like Welcome Week? Does she have a roommate?

You mentioned that I won a blog giveaway and to leave my address with the following e-mail but my mail doesn't let me sent it to that one. Not sure if it is correct?
