easy origami links, and blog template changeups…

I really, really don’t like blogs. web pages I like, but the whole “blog” concept with a gazillion useless tacky bits on the page annoys me. So since my previous template was geting stranger and stranger in how it didn’t work, I’m cheating and just pasting in someone else’s nicely pre-made template. my bad. I don’t think the 2 people who even look at this site care that much 🙂 Seriously though, a lot of you keep coming here because you’re doing google searches for “origomi” instead of “origami”. I’d suggest the following links: www.origami.comwww.paperfolding.commoney origamiBob Nienhuis’s money origami easy origami tutorialswww.oriland.comOrigami Underground (origami models for adults only)British Origami SocietyMarc Kirschenbaum’s Origami tells you how to make an origami craneMeenakshi’s huge page of modular origami diagramsSarah’s (of megatokyo fame) origami’s links (many of the same sites, and several more for instructions Hope that helps you get started down the road to some easy origami folding! If you are looking for origami tessellations and more complex origami, take a look at the links …

R.Bean over at flickr has a bunch of photos from a south korean paper arts museum… quite a few of them are just mindbogglingly beautiful and creative. this is a woven paper stool- amazingly attractive to me, and it gets my paper freak inner-self motivated. She’s got a whole bunch of really cool photos, so make sure you check them out!!
