Origami Santa

Having a restful holiday… but of course the craftiness continues! My oldest got a great origami book for Christmas and now she is going to town. How cute is this festive Santa on his sled with his bag of gifts…. I love it!! 🙂

Smell the origami?

I’m pretty sure that there is something else I should be doing this afternoon besides origami with my girls. But you gotta take time to smell the roses… or in this case the origami right?! Mostly I can’t believe I can make it work! I have tried a bit of origami before and generally end up with crumpled balls of paper. Happily most of my folds have folded correctly and I actually get something at the end. Yeah! My brain hasn’t gone to complete mush… yet! 🙂


I’m trying to learn origami. It drives me crazy though, I see these “simple” diagrams and it makes me nuts when I can’t figure out how the fold is suppossed to go! I figure on some level it must be good brain exersize… heehee. Anyway, these are my VERY little accomplishments so far. I just bought a book Multidimensional Transformations Unit Origami… sounds like fun huh!!! 😀 We shall see… Hope you are having a great Thursday!!
