number seventeen...

...on the list has officially been completed. I can even fold them without watching the 10 minute video I found on youtube. thank goodness for the video because the little instructions that come with the origami paper were a little too complicated for my wine infused mind. the 10 minute VERY introductory video was much more my speed.

I'm particularly excited about this little project because it is not only fun and therapeutic, but, also doubles as a gift for my lovely very pregnant friend amber. I took 9 sheets of the origami paper to her shower last week-end and had everyone write a little wish for baby to be (softly and in pencil) on the backside of the paper. I'm now in the process of folding each paper into little origami cranes that I plan to string into a little mobile for baby's room.

oh...I was thinking of you when I posted this and was hoping you might like it. our little neighbor, huck, has one in his room that his mom's friend made and I loved the idea! The little mobile hardware is pretty easy to find too. :)
