I Fly Like Paper

I've talked about wanting to learn how to fly an airplane, but there's actually one type of plane I can already glide across the sky-- the kind with wings made of paper. While folding a paper plane takes some skill, sending a well-made one soaring across a room requires little or no training. The flights may not always be long nor the landings always pretty, but watching the thin paper momentarily suspended in air always seems just a bit magical.

I used to spend hours making those as a little one. I'll have to make one for the dude!

Courtney said...

I LOVE this round up. You always make the best compilations. I'm with Mary Jo...torn between the necklace and pillows. That pillow would be too cute in a boy's room!

I love paper airplanes! Steven has a book about them with all sorts of special planes that do tricks and things- I think he's had that book since he was about 4.
Next time my nephews come for a visit I'll have to make some with them.

I'm so glad you're back blogging!
