origami mobile tsuru...

My cousin had asked me to make her a mobile for her new home.
As usual I "google" to find ideas (I m really good at copying but not creating!!!) and I found this one, I decided to give it a try as I had all the things I thought it was needed at home... what I used was origami paper, nylon thread (to hook the cranes), silk thread (the orange one), beads ( i used 3 different types - 2 orange and 1 silver), hashi (chopstick) and glue. I really had all things at home! :) I was going to use more cranes, but I was out of orange beads :(

Well... hope she likes it... I did!!!

my niece 1 st bday

My niece is one now... we had a huge party for her (you can check in my other blog - - though it is written in portuguese), I made a gift for the guests.
I made tulip fabric flowers, I found tutorial on the net... I know the leaf is not tulip leaf, but it was the one that would look better, I could write her name and date, and decided to use a pencil as a steam to make the gift more "useful".

and for some special family members I made this pendant... I love this photo and have it as my computer screen!
