Last year a challenge was presented on another site I'm part of to make 1000 origami cranes by the end of the year. I had just about half of them done by the end of a month and a half (what can I say? I got bored at work...). So have you ever wondered what 1000 origami cranes looks like? Well wonder no more!





Believe it or not, this was actually kind of relaxing after the first couple of cranes. I could just zone out to the folding and let my stress go.

I actually burned them at Samhain last year and made a wish. One of the legends that goes along with the crafting is that if you make 1000 cranes you will have a wish granted by a crane.

That's amazing. The picture, the effort and the offering/sacrifice are all amazing...I hope your wish comes true!
while taking this photo, did you happen to take handfuls of cranes and throw them up in the air? I wish I could touch them! lol There are just sooooo many!

Brightest Blessings!

Wow... Now I am having visions of all of them hanging from the ceiling of my soon to be craft room.... though I'm not sure I have the patience to make 1,000 of them or would be any good at making them lol.

Those look amazing!
