Bird A Week Challenge: Week 1 & 2

Well, blogging has opened up a whole new world to me. I stumbled onto Ruth Baillie of Birdland Creations, Bird A Week Challenge. It sounded fun, so I joined. Since I missed the first two weeks, I did a quick “catch up” and made two origami cranes, a boy (the svelte green one) and the girl (voluptuously pink :-)). I made them from memory. It’s something that was taught to me as a little girl by my mother or grandmother. A crane “tsuru” in Japanese culture symbolizes good fortune, longevity, and fidelity. Nowadays, the tradition of folding 1,000 cranes represents a form of healing and hope during challenging times. What better birds to start the new year and challenge with. Thank you Ruth for the challenge!

  1. So glad you found our challenge and have decided to join in. I love your first two birds. The blog hop has a different code for wordpress. It’s probably easiest if I email you it so please send me your email address and each week I’ll send the code. I’m assuming you just add that code and it links to the other blogger blogs too. Let’s give it a go. ruthebaillie@mac.com Thanks.
