Fun Monday on a Friday!

Wow...I just can't believe I've been gone for a week!

I'm sending my apologies to Karisma for missing her Fun Monday this week. My schedule just got crazy...and my body is telling me to slow down...so I've been catching up with my sleep the past days.

I promised Karina to make a late post...because I just love her theme - I Made It Myself!

Mariposa flutters anywhere...with anything...anytime!

So, here are some of the anything that gets to Mariposa's hand...

Mariposa can do balloon arrangement, please check what I did in our Christmas Party last year.

Mariposa can also cook...do table settings...and scented candles as evident in our last Easter Celebration this year!

I believed I have mentioned in my past post that I have a butterfly garden, and that some people buy butterflies from for weddings. Yes, we have butterfly release here too. I sell them only if it the release is done outdoors.

This week, we got an order...for 100 butterflies! So today, I had to make the cage for the butterflies. It was kind of a challenge because this is the first wedding I've handled that has umm...an unusual color motiff. I know some would go for multiple colors...but usually they're pastel colors...or the rainbow shade...but this one?! Ha! It has the following color motiff - fuschia pink, torquise blue, celadon green, tangerine orange and sunflower yellow! Can somebody tell me if this is a "thing" for 2008?! I have not read anything that says so...

Anyway...I had to make it. So here I am making the cage...









Finally, I've managed to combine the other 3 colors here...



And here is the cage...less the butterflies!










I'd like to thank my official photographer...no other than the IT Guy! LOL Yup, yup, he is that crazy over me...when he can't bother me because I'm doing something...he either stares at me...or take pictures of me. These photos were taken from my cellphone! ;)

I've been up since yesterday...so I need to go to bed soon...will be back for other post!

Participants of
Friday's 40 Photo Challenge my entry will be up later today.

That is amazing. Just...truly awesome. What a cool thing to do, and the cage looks wonderful!

I've never heard of that sort of color motif before. Who knows...maybe a trend is forming.
