Origami Tulip I made today for an extremely nice lady!


Origami Tulip that I made and will take today to a friend in the hospital. True Origami must be made with only one piece of paper and as this has two pieces "Modular Origami" would be a better description. "Ori" means to fold and "gami" means paper.

 



A great coffee shop!

Macramé necklace with Tennessee arrowhead that I made years ago, but I want you to especially notice the Crinoids (fossil animals) I used for beads as I looked for a long time in a creek to find some that would have a hole in them and also be graduated from small to larger and then back to small again.
