BTW my 1,000 Post!

 Last year for Christmas I received a day at a time calender.  The good part of this was that each day was a different origami art work.  And I could use the pages of the previous day to make my origami work.  This was so neat as I had something interesting to do every day.  I learned a new art form.  And it showed the thought that was given in a give for me.

I love sharing original gifts in my gift guide.  Also affordable ones too!  So for my crafty friends and especially those who have interesting ways to look at the world I give you World's Best Origami by Nick Robinson.  This is a easy to follow book to making over 100 different origami art pieces.  This book starts with the basic forms and even has my personal favorite, the Penguin.  I can imagine you know that person who has everything, well bet they don't have this.

If you would like to teach you kiddo a lil on this art form then you may want to start with the grade school classic of the Fortune Teller.   You remember this one right?  Pick a number and pick a color to get the answer to your question.  Your kiddos will have you helping out with this one just a time or two.  Then they will be answering all your questions with it.

    Those origami things always look so difficult to do.


Yippee! You came to talk to me. Thanks.
You know how special that makes me feel?
