Share with others

On the Origami Romania forum we lunched a campaigne in order to promote origami - Share with others! ( click here for more information )
The idea of this campaigne, started by four forum members ( Adina, Cridiana, Elsix and Horatiu ) is to give origami to people in an indirect way: by leaving the models in the bus, or banks, or postal offices, or in any public place that comes in our minds.
On the models we will write our forum address, or simply just write "origami", so the person who will find the paper will be able to find out more about it just by doing a Google search.
We decided to do this because we believe that origami is an art that deserves all the attention and should be better known in our country.
And just like the name of our campaigne says, beautiful things are meant to be shared with others.

Origami brings us together

I've been in Bucharest these days and I've met some of the Origami Romania forum members.
I knew that people having a common hobby are likely to get along well, but I never imagined we could become such good friends. :)
What was suppose to be "the first meeting", soon became the second and the third one and I'm sure there are more to come. we are ( from right to left: Copilutz, Horatiu, Elsix, Adina )

Folding paper was, of course, part of our meeting:

And my favorite, a crane made out of a beer label, by Elsix. :)

And this is an extraordinary humming bird, a gift that I received from Horatiu. :D

These are two Venus kusudamas, with a small modification: tops are up!
They look like hedgehogs to me. :)
