Origami: the art of folding paper into shapes representing flowers, birds, etc.
This tiny crane was created by her -
Our funny girl!
This photo was taken a few years ago, at her birthday-bash,
in a restaurant filled with people.
She is not shy.
She is quite unique and stylish.
And has an aversion to wool.
While sitting at a table with her, I saw that she had a stack of tiny squares of paper.
They were for Origami - something she'd learned from a favorite teacher of hers.
She offered to make a crane for me - which took about one minute!
The girl is fast.
A little bit of moisture...
A little bit of of air...
A pinch on the beak...
And heeeere he is!!
I asked what his name was and without hesitation, she said, "Armstrong".
I love her hands.
Speaking of hands -
When she, our 13 yr. old granddaughter and her older sister, our 17 yr. old granddaughter and I were having our hands photographed for my blogs banner,
we all turned our hands over for a quick, fun shot -
This is what was on her palm.
While Mel-Mel was checking out Armstrong for the first time,
I wanted to take her picture, but she wouldn't turn around -
Because she didn't "have her face on" yet.
Speaking of faces -
Here's one that we LOVE!
Our extraordinary, talented, cool and very -
