paper cranes + words take flight.

I've fallen in love with Sandy's mission. To fold 1000 paper cranes, with 1000 different positive words, to be released in 1000 different places.

{adore from sandy and the 1000 paper cranes}
Read more about her inspiration here. She's documents the release of each crane, and writes a little about what its accompanying word means to her.

What word would you write on your crane?

E. Charlotte said...

Oh I love paper cranes! I used to fold them all the time. :) I went to the person's blog and was inspired by her crane mission. Very cool! If I had a crane, what word would I choose? "Smile"

Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

OMG this is beyond! - i would write "free" .. oh i would have so many words to put in there *ekk8

*kiss kiss*

adore is one of my favorite words of all time. I'd have to think more on which word I'd choose . . . oh, the pressure!

Dancing Branflake said...

Oh my goodness that is incredible! 1000 paper cranes? 1000 lovely messages? I cannot even imagine. I would probably write "Life is everything it needs to be".

Tamara Nicole said...

That is seriously a fab goal!!! Sounds like something I'd love to do:-) I would simply just write "you are amazing, believe it!"

Also, thanks for the sweet anniversary wishes we had a blast!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

What a fabulous idea! Mine would say reach for the stars :)

Phoenix Peacock said...

I love this idea! I need to learn how to fold those!

sharonlei said...

Wow what a fun and brilliant idea. I've never heard of this before. My friends who got married last year folded 1001 cranes (Japanese tradition) and my hubby and I created a protrait for them out of those cranes. It's was the brides family crest. You can take a look here: http://elisharon.blogspot.com/2009/10/1000-1.html.

Hope you're having a wonderful day!

xx Love & Aloha

Oh my goodness! I read the book that inspired Sandy's project when I was in grade school. It was actually one of the first books that I cried reading! This is such a great project idea! I hope her swans find themselves in the hands of people who need it most! :]

If I could choose a word, I would choose "hope"

shari @ little blue deer said...

This is the coolest project, I agree! She is so clever! Hmmm, one word. Tolerance, I think, the world could use more of that!

jules @ The Diversion Project said...

it's such a great project, isnt it?! love the concept.

i'd probably write fearless, or precious.

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

what a lovely idea!

i would write "wander" which has always been a very positive word to me.

Jen said...

That's really a neat idea!
I think I'd write "Be nice to one another." : ) xoxo

Felicity said...

I would write "Yes!"

Jess said...

What a beautiful idea. LOVE.

lancelonie said...

Indeed, that is so inspiring! Wow!

On my crane, I think I'll put INSPIRATION. :)

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I saw this! I think it is a great idea!

Becca said...

That's interesting.

I think I had an origami book when I was like seven, and I wanted so bad to be good at folding those paper cranes.
And I wasn't.

But I'm glad this girl is!
And she's making a cool life-goal out of her talent.
You rock, paper-folder!

The Zhush said...

Summer {Bisfor...} said...

i live for things like this!

MarchMusings said...

Great idea. If I could fold it into a perfect crane I'd probably write 'Breathe' on it!

Lady Grey said...

I agree, this is such a sweet idea. This world needs a little more positivity spread around!

ag. said...

I'm SO glad you've shared this, how amazing. I'd write 'BE' as in just be...it's kinda my motto. My bff has taught that it is so important to just stop and be and enjoy life in the moment.

Ashley [Free Honey] said...

That's a really lovely idea! I don't know what I'd write tho...so much pressure.

Gracie said...

What a wonderful project. I will definitely have to check it out.

A word I would put on the crane...hope!

Jen said...

How wonderful! I think I would use a similar word: beloved.

koralee said...

Hugs my friend.

I have seen her site before, I think it's really cool... but I also can't help but think of all the wasted paper. LOL! I try to be as paperless as possible, but I do like what she is doing... a lot!
