Crafty: Origami!

Yesterday, origami madness continued. This time with pretty paper. I made two cranes (guess which colours are mine) and it was incredibly fun. Today I will buy some pretty paper and keep practising. Once I master the crane, I will move on to something different, but not the frog. My bf tried making the frog and it looked way too complicated and difficult. He said it looks like a monster but I was pretty impressed with how it turned out. There were at least 4 pages of instructions to make the frog, eek!

I think origami qualifies as a meditative activity. You get so immersed in folding that paper that time flies by and all non-paper-related thoughts melt away. Which feels pretty good.

I think I will try to keep doing artsy things more regularly. Yes, my little paper crane is artsy. The pretty paper enhances the effect ;-)
