origami . . . charlotte . . . and ramen

 Charlotte saw me folding paper cranes and wanted to make some herself.  She told the that she liked origami and she wanted to do it all by herself.  
She asked for a little help at first . . . then decided that she was able to do it . . . 
. . . so well in fact, that she folded this "origami bubble gum."

I love ramen . . . I have a weakness for ramen.  I think I could eat it nearly everyday.
So finally decided to find a recipe and make some.  It turned out pretty good . . . and I can't wait to make it again and try something a little different. 
. . . .and - if you haven't seen the movie - Ramen Girl - find it and watch it! 

A bowl of ramen is a self-contained universe with life from the sea, the mountains, and the earth. All existing in perfect harmony. Harmony is essential. What holds it all together is the broth. The broth gives life to the ramen.

  1. I think it's wonderful she wants to do what you do. And so inventive of her too. The ramen looks delicious and comforting.

  2. I've been meaning all week to come and leave a comment on this post - I loved it. I am so thankful for my father's patience - he had a spiral-bound book with made-up origami designs pasted onto backgrounds, and he must have spent an inordinate amount of time refolding them all after we had played with the book, unfolded them and been unable to make them up again! And DH was very taken with your dollar-bill folding, heading straight off to YouTube to find the pattern so he can do it himself.

  3. How wonderful of you father for letting you explore that and having the patience he did! I love the dollar bill also . . . It would be fund to turn a bunch of them into a gift.
