Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

The Menagerie

I spent the weekend folding origami animals and cranes for my contribution to this week's Iron Craft challenge. I am making a garland for the Baby Lotus Bud's room.

Lions, giraffes and elephants...Oh my! These come with the fold pattern on the paper which made them fairly easy to make.

When I was pregnant I made a bunch of cranes to hang from the ceiling of the nursery. I didn't realize that I had chosen the more difficult pattern: the peace crane. So much for making a 1000 cranes.

These here are much easier to make and supposedly you can tug on the tail and they will flap their wings. 1000 cranes just may happen sometime soon!

As of today, I'm still folding. I have about 30 more to go for the garland. Wish me luck!

See what's happening around the world today at Communal Global!


  1. I can't wait to see the finished product but boy do you have a lot to make!

  2. February is here....are you through with the cranes and the garland....1000?? Can't wait to see. Good Luck!
