And hasn’t it been a looooooong time since my last blog? Yes, it has. Of course it has. And I must say I’m not surprised or disappointed in myself, because I’ve known for well, my whole life, that I’m a very very veeeery lazy person ;). But let’s not talk about the stuff I didn’t do these past few months, but about the things I did do!

It all started this thursday. When the Netherlands suddenly became victim of a heavy snowfall. Or well, victim…, not everyone sees it that way, but I do! Because of the snow I can’t go anywhere on the bike or I’ll have to take the bus, but I’ll bet there’s a lot of traffic >.<. Anyways, the snow. I decided that if I had to stay at home because of the snow, I’d better do something with it too! Which is why I made a Snowman! 😀 And in a closet somewhere in the attic I also found: ‘Snowman in a box’. Which contains everything I needed to dress my snowman with; A black high hat, red scarf, black buttons, a wooden pipe and of course a carrot! And here you can see the result! It’s not very big, but that’s because it was already very late and cold :P.

And now on to the next goal! This saturday I had a Christmasparty with my friends. (And we had so much fun!) We had decided that everyone had to buy a gift for everyone and because we were with six people, it meant you had to search gifts for five people. We had also decided that you had to make a poem or a story for everyone. And then I had the idea to fold those up as ORIGAMI! I actually wanted to make a different origami figure for everyone. But in the end I just made for everyone the most popular origamifigur: the crane. I had already made this crane 10 years ago (when I was still in primaryschool! Wasn’t I a little genius? xD), so I knew I could do it, but I just didn’t remember hów to do it. But luckily internet exist! I really have to thank Google and Youtube for helping me out with this.
So, if you want to learn how to fold the origamicrane, just take a look at this little movie. ^.^

Well that’s that, for now then. I’ll really try to work more on my goals from now on and to be less lazy. And I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Edit: But the Crane isn’t the only origamifigure I made! I also made the swan and the penguin, but those weren’t for the party ;).
