The hubby was out of town for work this weekend, so I had 2 days by myself to be bored and miss him. I chose to sit down and work on 1 piece that would take a long long time and would keep my mind occupied. Something I had not done before, of my own creation. I wanted it to be complicated as well as detailed.
So I came up with this design. It is a variation of a traditional kusudama flower. I created the design a little bit ago while messing around with paper. This design takes a little longer to put together but I like the end result.
So I spent about an hour picking the colors… then about another hour deciding what size I wanted the flowers to be. I started with 1 giant flower, and then somehow ended up with 21 ity bity flowers (from my usual).. Overall it took about 7 hours to make all the flowers, the vase (which by the way is also an origami vase), the flower arranging etc etc etc.
Boring? No. Challenging? a little…
Should my husband go out of town again so I can bury myself in origami? Not if I want to keep my sanity!
Did I mention I forgot to eat while he was gone and also forgot to feed the pets and water the plants? I am not very functional without him. But after all, he is always my inspiration.
