Random Saturday afternoon stuff
Maya started crying while eating a lollipop today. She said that her tooth hurt. We checked and she has first loose tooth! Chris and I were way more excited than she was, but she is now excited. She said that she wants the tooth fairy to bring her lots of stickers. I figure the tooth fairy could handle that. :-) Now she can't stop talking about her loose tooth. She said she's going to tell her whole school about it on Monday. LOL

I spent about an hour this afternoon trying to learn how to make a folding paper turtle. I got thoroughly confused with the Korean instructions that came with the cute little package of paper.

Uh.... *dies*

I went online and Google was my friend, yet again.

YAY! I did it! Uh...now what?


I figured that I live in Korea, I should know this. :-p

I need to practice the turtle more. It kind of looks like a frog too. Hmmm. The next object to learn how to fold: a rose. A packet of 80 sheets of folding papers is only about the equivalent of $0.50! I picked up turtle, rose and rainbow boats. I also have glitter papers for stars. :-)

Aren't they meant to be a little more 3 dimensional than that?

Like you said, "now what?"

Yay for Maya's tooth, although I am totally grossed out by anything to has to do with teeth falling out....

I've always found origami instructions, in ANY language, to be as confusing as all out. If that makes sense. I'm picking up my roommate's vocab, hehe.

Ah, I remember loose teeth/teeth falling out and the ensuing "visit" from the tooth fairy aka asking dad for $. eh.

Specifically, it is supposed to be a Sea Turtle. Sort of looks like it.

I thought it looked more like a kickass looking Power Rangers Helmet XD

'A packet of 80 sheets of folding papers is only about the equivalent of $0.50'

And the price on the two hours it takes you to pop out one of them suckers?

Yay! I love origami!

The paper crane is fun - we couldn't stop making those or those little stars out of strips.......
