Ever since my childhood in Omaha, Nebraska, I've loved sharing origami and pop-ups with all age groups and in many settings--in camps, schools, community centers, libraries, and retirement homes. I've published three books of my own designs:
Animated Origami Faces, models of human and animal faces with jaws that snap, eyes that open and shut, and ears that pop up (2007)
Jewish Holiday Origami, designs for the Jewish holidays (2006)
Washington Pops!, do-it-yourself pop-up cards of famous buildings in Washington, D.C. (1989)
Diane Gilleland has made things her whole life, and would gladly give up most household chores for an afternoon of serious crafting. She has a bi-weekly Pod Cast that is all about Making Stuff.

Almost Unschoolers(3 contributions)
I'm a homeschool mom of six. My family has been homeschooling for about eleven years. And, each year, we've learned a little more about having fun, and spending less, while learning more. It's great to be a homeschooler!
