So I was all like, ‘Yeah! I’m going to make and sell Origami Cranes on Etsy!’

June 12, 2017


Cause I know how to do that! And that would be a fun thing to do! And I could make beautiful things for the people! … and then I went to Etsy and had a look to see if people were already doing that, and they are. And they are doing it for much, much […]

Check out my new tattoos!

August 14, 2016


I have 6 now! I may have posted this one, which I got on June 11 in Baltimore at Mr B’s Tattoo, earlier, but I can’t remember at the moment and am a bit too lazy to go back and check. I got this one with my friend Bridget (I know I posted that part […]

the Thousand Cranes are finished.

November 1, 2015


They’ve actually been finished since December 8, 2013. It only took 2 years since completion to get them hung! Since completing the project, I’ve had to talk about it a lot with my students, because we often talk about it in lessons. I started the project just to see if I could do it, honestly, but […]

Just a note to say: They’re finished!

December 10, 2013

I actually thought, somewhere back around 925, that I might end up posting MORE blog posts than folding cranes, thus reaching 1,000 blog posts before I finished the 1,000 cranes. That is clearly not going to happen, and I’m totally ok with that. Now I’m sitting here with the last 25 sheets, the last folder […]

You might have noticed the severe lack of books I’ve read in the past 2 months….

September 21, 2013


… this doesn’t mean I don’t WANT to read, it just means I have a pile of unread books sitting around. So I haven’t read any books in the past month or so. 925. And that’s just the bottom of the things I’ve been working on. In the time that I haven’t been reading, I’ve […]
