Butterfly Inspiration

For this year’s Mother’s Day, my delightful 11-year-old son bought me 3 butterfly-themed plates and a bowl.

I’d had my eye on those for a while now, and when they went on sale I snapped them up. They’re made by Living Art in Australia.

I was inspired by these designs, so I’ve started a new series of digital mixed media photographic art showcasing solo butterflies against different backgrounds.

Here are some I made earlier. Hope you like them! Copyright AlyZen Moonshadow.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all my readers celebrating it on the 2nd Sunday of May. Mother’s Day is celebrated the world over on different dates, usually in Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, Autumn if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere. If you’d like to know more about the day or find out when it is in your country, Wikipedia has the answers.

This year, my lovely 11-year-old son bought me a beautiful set of 2 teacups and saucers, with gorgeous blue and brown wrens and almond blossoms on them. And also some butterfly-themed plates in delicate blue, pink and green. Ok, I confess I bought them myself, as I’m making him save his pennies for next year’s school fund…but it’s the thought that counts, right? ;-)

I had a hankering for cupcakes, but decent ones are hard to come by in these parts, so the Kid and I made our own instead. They came from ahem! a Greens readymade mix packet. I let the Kid loose with decorating the frosting. He loved it. Such a sweet kid. ♥
