I had heard that the mama to be didn't have the butterfly themed nursery finished yet so my idea to use a b-fly mobile for decor then transition it to the nursh was well received. I picked the prettiest one on etsy and placed my order. I was assured that it would arrive in plenty of time for the shower and was sent the tracking number that week. I tracked and tracked and watched it arrive in Philly. Then stop. It sat there for 7 days before it made it's way 30 minutes outside of the city. Unacceptable. It actually arrived the morning of the shower but it was too late. I had went out the night before for all of the supplies and got cracking.
3 hours and a billion paper butterflies later, it was complete. And I loved it. Maybe a smidge better than the one I ordered. Oh who am I kidding? I knew I could do a better job, I just didn't feel like doing it myself. But I should have known. Either way, the guest of honor loved it and no one knew any better.
I snapped this terrible pic on my phone and am kicking myself because I thought I got more shots of it hanging in the home. I just got the one above, in the middle. It was pretty darn cute though.
