When I was planning to start Creative Charms 2 years ago, I was thinking logo would represent my company and products. Looking at my stash of products, many of them are butterflies. Suddenly, I found butterfly share similar symbolism with the craft and art we undertake. Butterfly represents growth and beauty. The growth and beauty of a butterfly share similar symbolism with the craft and art we undertake. Just like scrapbooking, it is a representation of one's growth and beauty for the person in the scrapbook and the scrapbooker themselves. We start out by taking small timid steps, wrapping ourselves in our cocoon. Suddenly, the scrapbook, the scrapbookee, and the scrapbooker have become something even more beautiful than imagined."
