No, I don't make my own designs, but I am the only one who is doing origami around here. I mean a few people know how to folds cranes and other common creations, but I am the only in this area person making cards and mobiles and doing this as a *craft*. The funny thing is, I don't consider myself a very creative person, and that is why origami appeals to me so much. I consider it more of a skill that anyone can learn if they have some patience and pay attention to detail. Anyhow, I'm looking forward to this class, (even though I've never taught before and I'm extremely nervous about that) and I hope it goes ahead.
I started when my dd was just few months old. I bought a book thinking that I could make her some stuff when she was a bit older. I find it amazing how much I enjoy it now!
BTW, I'm working on a Senbazuru (thousand cranes) right now. (slowly, between all my other projects and family stuff
) I want to string them all together and use them as a garland on my Christmas tree next year.
