I was following up on the Holocaust Museum Butterfly Project #1 swap we did 3 years ago, and discovered that the Holocaust Museum Houston is still 600,000 butterflies short of its goal of 1.5 million butterflies.
Last time we had 87 swappers join this swap. I am hoping we can at least double that this time around. (";)
There are 2 parts to this swap:
Make at least one (but if you can make more, then great!) 2-dimensional butterfly according to the criteria on the website:
They don't have to be elaborate - the more the better. No artistic skill is required. If you can cut out a butterfly from pretty paper and add a black body with a marker, or cut one out of construction paper and add some stickers, or have your children draw and decorate one with crayons and then cut it out, you're good!

May 4 edit: Added Leasha's address here::
Then send them to @Leashah who has very kindly offered to partner with me on this swap:
Leashah will take photos of the butterflies and post them on this Flickr account, as well as mail them to the museum with all of the required information. She will also send the Museum a link to the photos.
Revised May 4:
Please included with your butterfly/-ies a separate note with the following info:
This will help Leashah to compile her list.
If you wish, please feel free to also add your name and country to the back of your butterfly/-ies.
Send your swap partner via snail mail a note describing the butterfly (or butterflies) you made and how you felt while making them.

I am opening this swap to everyone with good swapping records, including unrated swappers with fully completed profiles, in the hope that no one will flake on such a wonderful and bittersweet project.
Thanks to everyone who joins!
The last, the very last,
