Origami and slight random updates.
So yes winter is banking pretty much in New York City, and what else can I do, other than think about warmer weather. Job hunting is certainly something that is done on a flurry of on/off moments. Rather several things this week as I have my errands to run.
- Get to the library to pick up some manga.
- Post something for Manga Movable Feast this week.. Karakuri Odette (no this is not related to Swan Princess)
Somethings has happen though, I have been slowly getting back into reading my Google Reader.. very slowly though. My blog reading count is still in the 1000’s but what else to do. I have been on and off Twitter. I think I can control my tweeting to only doing it with my cell phone at some points.
Another is something I find myself going nuts for. Folding paper aka Origami, and for this I happened to get something in the mail on Saturday.
Granted it is the book that is by the organizer of a weekly origami group that I join last fall, but I still find that it is anifty thing to get into. With practice and and a little pocket change one can indeed fold something of interest.
Crease + Fold has origami projects that is not organized by level of origami folding. Rather it is organized by how big the finished product would be.
For a person like me, who is still learning how to read diagrams to fold more projects. I find that I like the folding explanations toward the beginning. It is not lost in technical jargon, and very layman speech for some parts.
Also another nifty thing about this book, is that every page is in color. So as a visual appreciator, folding can be a bit more tempting to do.
A majority of the projects in this book are explaining about folding animals, but there are some that I find myself wanting to do in the future. Sweetheart Dress, Subway Map Wallet or a Sakura Blossom. Reading this book does take some time. I am experimenting, and the diagrams does pose some issue, but origami is a rewarding craft in the end.
