i made 100 purple cranes

or maybe 30(ish). and then i hung them (jason's sissie
kendall helped me. she's got longer arms than i do.)
on a tree on a busy side street in rexburg. i am quite the
guerilla artist. but not the graffiti/destructive type.
and by the way, i'm a freaking genius at making origami cranes.
it was all that paper folding practice i tell ya!
looked it up on youtube. now i'm pro.


this lady is a real good teacher. best one i found.
(there are some real doozies. trust me.)

finals are over (phewph!) and i want to take a nap.
like bad.

I've always wondered what kind of people randomly decorate trees, etc. Now I know. Was it an assignment or were you just decompressing after finals?

How fun! Love the color against the winter background! I bet that tree cheered up a few cold people walking down that street.

i made the cranes for an advanced type project (i to write a booklet on guerilla art).

they were in front of porters.

it took lots and lots of hours. but now i can make one rockin piece of origami!
