Paper cranes

I'm sorry that it has been so silent over here this week. My university has started again and I've been very busy. I have to find a good rythm to include blogging to the busy days.
How do you guys include blogging into your life, your job, studies, etc.? Do you prepare posts in advance to post on days when you don't have the time, or the mood to blog? Or do you have any  other hints?

Back to the topic. Paper cranes are popping up everywhere lately. I collected some different versions and I like to see these all together. Isn't it fun to see what different people with their different creative minds make out of the same topic? Using different materials, colors and media the results are unlimited. Isn't that inspiring?

Starting from above:

Pickles is a Norwegian blog filled with lovely DIY projects as home accessoires, clothing and yummy recipies. Heidi and Anna do a lot of craft projects and come up with their own patterns which they want to share. What a great idea! I especially love the crocheted lampshade and the pouf. Pickles is written in Norwegian, so maybe using google translate is a good idea. 
Update: Great news: Heidi and Anna have some of their tutorials available in English now. And there are more to come.
