Thursday, March 27th, 2014.

Again we had another great turnout of a total of 13 people participate in the project. We started out with a quick lesson on folding origami cranes. Then we got down to creating Crane ATC’s. Two hours really flied by. Before I new it, it was time to start cleaning up. All together we created 72 crane cards. Our next get together is Thursday, April 24th from 2:00-4:00pm.




The First Siege

The First Siege of the “Cranes of Hope” project.

Thursday, February 27th, 2014.
Virginia Piper Cancer Institute, Minneapolis, MN.

We had a total of 13 people come together to create Artist Trading Cards (ATC’s) for people and patients who could use a little up lifting. Each card is a unique miniature work of art with an inspirational/uplifting message and a small origami crane. The crane is a symbol of Hope, Peace and Healing. Fifty-two of these little gems were created with passion and love. Success! Spreading smiles.

Thanks to Jayson King, Art of Healing Program Manager for believing in this project and supporting it. Also a huge thanks to everyone who came and gave of their time and talents.

Question: What do you call a group of cranes?
Answer: A Siege.
