Origami Ornaments

You have already seen my origami earrings, but tonight I'm making these origami ornaments. Each ornament has two crane birds. One is same size as my origami earrings, and other one is little bit bigger. I put them together with different types of beads and then origami paper is varnish to make them hard and waterproof.

Olympic!

Olympic started yesterday!!I received an email from my mom yesterday saying, ''Are you going to see Olympic?''.Oh I wish, but Vancouver is far from here even though I live in same country, Canada! Vancouver is located in west end in Canada, and Saint John is located in East end in Canada which takes about 8 hours by airplane. I remembered last time I went back to Japan, I flew from Halifax to Calgary to Vancouver, which took us about 8 hours to get there and another 8 hours to Tokyo. So Vancouver is almost half way from here and Japan.Did you watch openning ceremony? I was a little disappointed at this ceremony, but it's just beginning. I'm pretty sure we will witness many exciting games!

Go Canada Go!!
