Folded Paper Bird

Last week I embarked on a new series... a simple post each Friday that shows an image of something during the week that delighted me, and I hope you also.

The husband emailed this photo of a snow bird to me when he was in Japan recently. He promises there are more paper-related pics on his camera, a few of which are sure to be fodder for a blog post. Will his idea of a great topic mesh with mine? We'll find out!

He thought it was pretty funny when I asked in all innocence if he had folded the bird. The short answer was no... it was a little gift from his host in Akita, but he did trudge outside in the twilight to photograph it, proving there's more than one way to express yourself creatively.

Speaking of origami birds, you might enjoy checking out the cool mobile that Allison is working on. Inspired by Vanille's colorful, rolled paper mobile, she's adding a folded crane for each pound she loses - a clever incentive to make reaching her goal weight even more satisfying.

Find excellent instructions to make a peace crane or flapping bird at and have a Fab Friday!
