Bucket List - The Herd Begins

Back in February I posted my bucket list this year with 47 Things I want to this year. One of the things on my list was to learn to make origami cranes and make 1,000 of them. Japanese legend says that any person who makes 1,000 cranes will have their wish granted. Now, I don't believe in genies from magic lamps or that making 1,000 cranes will truly change my life, but it sounded like a fun thing to do so I put it on my list.

I've learned to make them and have been slowly improving my technique. So far I've made 50 of them. (And Wilson, my cat, ate one of them...not ate as in chewed and swallowed, but he had fun pulling it apart!)

Here's the herd so far:

I'm ready for my close up, Mr. DeMille.

My coworker has been questioning me frequently about my bucket list so a bunch of these cranes are going to make their way into her cubicle today :o)


  1. Are you really going for 1000?

  2. Tamara,

    Those are beautiful! Very colorful!
    I hope you took a picture of the cranes visiting your co worker!
    I'm rooting for you on that list :)
