Paper Insomnia

I keep falling asleep and waking up in random intervals, all I can remember is dreaming of origami flowers, some giant ones, some tiny ones. I dream of the folding sequence of the origami paper crane, and then I get it all wrong and end up with a squid of some sorts.

I think I may be losing my mind, but perhaps that is what I need to start making some mad paper arts.

In the meantime, here is something pretty I made:

WIM – What Inspired Me – Mini flower explosion while husband was gone.

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.
