The Simple and Silly Snake

Day 24: The Snake

Ya......so I found this one on the same website again,.....but I wanted something easy tonight as I had some baking to do and some reading for school......so I picked the snake.....seriously when you see this photo you are going to laugh....it actually looks like the little worm that was on Sesame Street that was friends with Oscar the Grouch....remember him?

Anyways, he makes me smile at the simplicity of him and maybe that will keep me motivated in my little cubicle...focusing on the simplicity of life when things gets tense and overwhelming.

So I welcome the snake for his simplicity and for bringing me back to a time of classic Sesame Street - there really is nothing better.

Thanks snake.


Day 23: The Coy Coi

Sorry for the photo- I forgot to rotate it but am too lazy to go and fix it at this exact moment.
So- this was a super cool looking origami but I knew it would be difficult for me to complete this early on in the project. But I attempted it anyways with a really fun patterned paper.

Although it doesn't look exactly like the website one, I am impressed I got it that close and I'm kinda loving it even though he's a little messed up - his left fin is kinda mangles as I tried to master the inverted fold......ya.....not so mastered yet.

But I think I will try it again in the near future and hopefully master the coi by the end.

Either way, loving him too, even his deformed little Nemo fin :)

The Simple but Sassy Shrimp

Day 22: The Shrimp

Ummm ya, I know you can't see the photo right now but this guy is the bomb!!! He looks like a real shrimp....no doubt! I can't wait to post pictures of this guy he is amazing. He was really easy and included a couple of cuts with the scissors.

Again I used the printed paper and I think the pattern works well for him. Again he came from the same website as the spider and I love him....I actually think he is my favorite thus far.

So far this week has been promising and renewed my faith in origami making.
Welcome cutest little shrimp EVERRRRRR!!!!

The Awsome and Wicked Spider

So Day 21: The Spider.....

Sorry I have no photos right now but the camera is MIA - I think I might have left it at work so photos will be posted soon I promise.

Regardless, I just made three out of the four days origami that are totally awesome and are for sure my favorite three. The spider which looks amazing was actually really really easy. I used my special and pretty paper to add some effect for the animals this week and it totally worked. I got all four of the animals from Monday - Thursday from the website http://www.origami-instructions.com/. They have great beginner origami but also some really neat looking ones like the spider that weren't overly difficult.

I spent the first two days this week working on a stupid pinwheel that never worked - I was never so frustrated!!! So I gave up and went back to the basics and was pleasantly surprised by the website and their friendly diagrams for the most part.

SO welcome spooky but awesome and wicked spider.....I am overly impressed with myself this week.
