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.

I’ve always had this idea in the back of my head, to make a kusudama ball trio and hang them all together. We’ll I did it once, a while back, and my cats (kitties then) decided one night to play soccer with them and then got hungry and chewed on them. I spend nearly 8 hours making them, and when I saw them ruined I was so mad that I stopped making kusudama art for a while. Anyhow, I always wanted to redeem myself and this time keep my work away from my critters, so here it is. Tripledama v 2.0
My skill has gotten better, my folds are smoother, the flowers are more symmetrical and my corners don’t bend anymore. After making so many of these I feel that every time I make a new one it is better than the last one. I guess in this case practice makes perfect. I still spend a lot of time on them, but now its more of a creative process, I have also created my own designs with different petals and different folds, and that just makes me happy.

In a failed attempt to make lemon poppy seed cupcakes, I have redeemed myself by making this lemony yellow flower bouquet. Inspired by the upcoming summer and ready to rock and roll, I am preparing myself to put away the winter coats and open the windows!
I love to surround myself by things that keep my positive and upbeat, so here it is, attempt number 2 at lemons! (this time not edible)
You can purchase them on my Etsy Shop
