Finally, it's Friday! I am so ready for it to be the weekend, you have no idea. The only problem is, I am working Saturday AND Sunday. Why do I do this to myself? I am a madwoman, that is why. I just really need the money.

I got the chance to make a little origami turtle tutorial for Deb, so I am posting that here.

Hopefully that helps. I'm sorry that my hand kept getting in the way of the view! My sister was manning the camera, so I assumed she would hold it in a place that would have a good line of sight, but she kept holding it behind my hand =\ Well, I can try to remake the video if you need to see a certain part better, just let me know!

All of the paper I use is from this company (for the most part) Jong Ie Nara (no, I don't know what that means! If you do, tell me =P ). The paper is all really colorful and pretty, and it's cheap, too!

(these are a few other things I know how to make :] )

Tuesday night I am having crochet lessons from one of my mom's friends, Lu. I am so happy I finally found someone who lives near me who actually knows how to crochet :) I'm tired of trying to figure out the videos I see online, they're just confusing me even more. I'm excited :D I'll let you know how it goes!

When I learn how to crochet I want to learn how to make amigurumis! Aren't they the cutest thing you have ever seen in your life???

(Gourmet Amigurumi)

I hope everyone has a great weekend :) What are you guys doing?


  1. Emilie! Thank you so much for doing this!!! I thought you did an AWESOME job explaining the process. I will have to watch this a few times before actually attempting it. I think I need to learn how to fold a crane first...? I will definitely try my hand at your little turtle (he's ADORABLE) and when I do I'll post a picture of him on my blog and will let you know!

    Thanks again for doing this! :o)

  2. Oh my god! EXTREMELY cute!!!:)
