Monday Inspiration

For the next couple of months I will be showing pictures of a new craft I am teaching myself which is Origami. I am really enjoying this and it amazes me what you can make just by folding paper. I hope you enjoy some of my creations.
This piece of Modular Origami consists of 90 individual folded pieces that are then joined together.

Chicken Saga and Inspiration

It took two hours but animal control finally came and got the chicken and I am happy to report that it has been returned to its owner. I found out that it is legal to raise a few chickens in our city and this one lives half a block away.

Wednesday Inspiration and Surprise

Iwas watering my gardens this morning and when I came out to the front yard, much to my surprise there standing in my flower bed pecking at the flowers was a chicken. Now if I lived in the country I could understand it but I live in the middle of a city. Someone passing by said it was a sign of good luck and I said it was good luck I found it before it damaged my flowers. I have called animal control and now am awaiting their arrival.
