And so it begins…

Today is the first day of my 101 Things in 1001 days. Yay! I am very excited about this. 🙂 Above you see the beginning of the 1001 Lucky Stars. At this point, there is about 50 of them.

Here’s what they look like all spread out. Some of them are better than others as I am still working on perfecting them.

I found that making my own is more challenging than I had hoped. My paper cutter isn’t making nice smooth lines, and it is hard to find decent paper for making them. So far, my stars made with the actual origami paper have been significantly nicer. So, I ordered lots more paper- for more packages with varying amounts. $15 shipped….not bad.

Here’s my current jar- I am at 100. I still have a few to add though. We watch an episode of a TV show on DVD with dinner (currently we are watching Stargate) and after I was done eating tonight, I worked on making a few more.

Lefty’s jumbo cat feet getting in the way, as always.
