Over the last year, Amanda has been folding and sending me paper cranes. She numbers each one to keep track of her progress to 1,000. This is 154 of 156 (two were a little too floppy to include). They've been living in their envelopes for far too long so last night I decided to string them. This mobile consists of 10 approximately 12" strands of cranes attached to a plastic hoop with thread. She sends a crane report with each packet so I know the origin of the paper for each crane, our favorite being her library receipt for Stargirl and Love, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli.
