Here's the first 50 cranes all shot together. The Banister in the house is about 1/2 way full, I can only imagine where cranes are going to be stacked up when I get farther along.... yeesh.

how to make a crane

Some people have asked for some assistance on how to make an origami crane.

1) get a square of paper
2) fold it in 1/2 in all 4 possible ways (Corner to Corner x2, Side to Side x2)
3) unfold and place in front of you with a point facing you. <> not [ ]
4) do a crazy fold that I can't really explain
5) do some other folds that I can't really explain
6) google search through a dozen sites until you find one that can explain the one step you need to do next (cause every site I have seen is great for 1 or 2 steps, but none have been the catch all)
7) repeat 1000 times

Try this site for a good start

First Friday of 2006

Six days into the new year.

I have been slowly building up my small collection of paper cranes. I have also refrained from drinking soda, and eating red meat (my other resolutions for 2006). I have found that full page ads from some of the tech magazines that pile up in my office make for a good 5x5 or 6x6 square of paper, which has led me to fold a few cranes a day while munching my lunch at my desk. I plan on posting the first set of pictures sometime this weekend.

Current count: 10 down - 990 to go (that's 1% done - Woo!)

suggestion taken - sort of

It has been suggested that I take the time to write little sayings on each of my 1000 paper cranes. I totally love the idea, but know that I would have tons were either song lyrics or that all say the same thing over and over (cause I'm just not that creative). Instead I have descided that I would put a line on each giving them some context to the time in which they were created.... like a year long journal in 1000 lines.


Well, at least I've started
