Happy Sunday!  With the arrival of winter . . . and with it, shorter days, inclement weather, and the possibility of seasonal doldrums, here is an activity that will not only give you something to do, but should help brighten your day as well.  Who doesn’t like getting a bouquet of flowers?

Happy Friday!  As we head into the weekend, if you are in need of an idea about what to do, here is another origami project you could tackle.  Since I seem to be on a Star Wars kick lately, why not feature some of the origami versions of the assorted flying ships.  Let’s start with the Millenium Falcon (courtesy of Shu Sugamata).  Happy folding!
