Happy Valentine's Day my Little Mushkas! <3

Here are the Etsy links where you can get them:
Blue/Gold Beads
Purple/Gold Beads

I've been making a lot little crafty things lately while putting together my Tyto Owl charms....all to make a little extra cash for more art school supplies.

I was inspired by the Japanese belief of Senbazuru, where a chain of a thousand paper cranes is made to bring good fortune and luck to the maker/reciever. It's also said that whoever makes a thousand cranes will be granted a wish. This my not be a thousand cranes but it's a little symbol for all the wishes we have and that one day they may come true.

(here's a wiki link on Senbazuru [link])

I take great care in making sure each crane is neatly folded and that the details of the folds can been seen. Each crane is attached to the cork with fine invisible thread to keep it sitting upright in the bottle and at the same time allowing it to move around in the bottle.

They come with blue/gold beads and purple/gold beads. I've made 8 of each color sets. I'm not sure if I'm going to continue this project so get one now before they're gone!

That is lovely.. Reminds me of a book I read a lot when I was a kid
'Sadako and The Thousand Paper Cranes'
Such a sad story... I need to find that book again. Thanks for allowing me to recall that story. If you still made em. I would find a way to buy it.

Oh little glass bottle, you evade me so.
Though my eyes search and my desire grows,
I cannot find you, oh noes.

I look and look and search and search,
but I cannot topple you from your lofty perch.
High on a mountain of secrecy you sit,
If I don't find you I may have a fit.

Where do these bottles lie?
What is the secret that is hidden from I,
the secret, not disclosed,
that I wish to find before I reach the close.

yay harry potter reference in the last line, haha can you tell me where to find these bottles? I wrote a poem ;)
