Birds of Happiness

Paper Cranes & Mini Pom Poms

Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.
~Leonardo da Vinci

Birds of Happiness
I was watching Le Divorce while making these little birdies and puff balls last night.  In the movie, one of the characters writes a poem about a bird that bows as it flies.  It was beautiful and perfect to hear while making paper cranes.  So I thought a poem about flying would be fitting to post with these little birdies today.  I made them for a friend's birthday in hopes that they would be fun, original Christmas decorations to hang from a tree or the ceiling or whatever.  And now I can't wait to make some for myself.  To me, they're pretty and graceful in a way.  Hmmmm.....what papers will I use???

Have a wonderful weekend!
