Such an inspiring story!
Congratulations to both on your perseverance. :)

These are just beautiful! What a great idea to use your journal pages and paint. The beads add just the extra touch, so pretty! Congratulations to you and your son, what an accomplishment! I'm sure the recipients are thinking they are the ones with the luck!


Lovely paper cranes and what a wonderful project. A few years ago my daughter, with the help of some friends, folded 1,000 paper cranes for an ailing relative's recovery. There is a wonderful illustrated children's book, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes.

For 2011 I am wishing for creativity, growth, connection, and renewal.


What a profound and inspiring story! I love the idea of creating 1,000 origami cranes.

Love, peace and joy,


Your cranes are truly beautiful. 250 is quite an accomplishment on its own, but 1000 - wow - that is, words escape me, I can't even imagine what 1000 cranes in a pile looks like.

I do have some wishes I would like to come true but I don't think I'm up to folding 1000 cranes so your sone must have a lot of perseverance and drive.


That is amazing gift your son has done for his friend and for himself. Tell him to make a really great wish.
