Jewelry and Beading Round Up

Here's the Short One's and my week in a nutshell. Paper, paper and more paper. We used up so much origami over the past few days, that I had to phone around locally for stores carrying more (we ultimately found a big kit on sale at Borders - 200 sheets + booklet for $9.99). I also took the precaution of ordering a bunch from a mail-order Japanese book store.

The SO now has enough colorful paper boats to command an armada. It's been quite useful for practicing numbers greater than thirty, but I've had to find increasingly larger shoeboxes to store them all! (He wasn't all that keen on the frog, but the paper flowers were also a big hit.)
