I know, I know – I promised my next post would be about Alexa and Tegan’s visit last week. Not going to happen. Mostly because my brain is melting out of my head. So, instead, I bring you my latest crazy idea…


You may have been seeing my photos on instagram and twitter with the hashtag #origamigraffiti and been wondering what the heck I’m on about. Well, it’s like this…

After spending the last 2.5 years in and out of the hospital and doctors offices, I had an idea for spreading good will and cheer – with origami graffiti. Little anonymous (or not) gifts for others. The idea is to leave origami in places where people will find and enjoy them. Ideally, as a happy surprise during an otherwise stressful time.

So, I’ve been testing the idea and it’s been quite successful. People pick them up and play with them, they move them around, and some even take them home (which is also cool). Point in case: Mum and I dropped off 3 origami cranes at a pharmacy last week and when we came back, they were all sitting in pride of place – on top of the registers.

I even got my sister and Tegan into it, and will share many pictures of them folding paper in my next post (really).

So, that’s that. I invite you to join me in my quest to bring joy to the world – one fold at a time.  All I ask is that you remember to use the hashtag #origamigraffiti when you share pictures on Instagram or Twitter :)
