Son Gives Mom Best Christmas Gift Ever! A Lamp Filled With A Thousand Hand MaPaper Cranes!

lamp origami

Simply amazing!

You know how moms are always saying they'd like their kids to make them something instead of buying them something? …which, when we think about it, is probably because kids are using their parents' money to buy any presents… but nyways, one son took that advice to heart, and made his momma one happy lady this past Christmas!

And he documented each step he took to make the extraordinary gift he created — a thousand beautiful hand folded paper cranes in a lamp!

Part of his process was buying five sheets of different colored paper, and making 200 cranes from each sheet! Each paper crane was about the size of a nickel!

Then he placed them all in the lamp in a unique and creative way, and the end result was miraculous!

We hope other kids look to this youngster for inspiration — this is how you give a proper Xmas present to your mom!

Check out more pictures of the origami paper crane lamp process down (below) !!!

Alicia Keys Needed A Giant-Ass Crane To Move Her Stuff Out Of Her Penthouse!

alicia keys swizz beats moving nyc new jersey crane absurd real estate

While we certainly understand the need to use bigger machinery to move bigger objects, we do have a question about Alicia Keys needing a giant-ass crane to pull expensive stuff out of her $15 million penthouse: did they need a crane to get it in there??

We certainly would've heard if they did — which makes us think this is OVERKILL!

Alicia and Swizz Beatz just sold their SoHo condo, and started to move this week. That's hard enough when you live in NYC with any amount of stuff, but extra hard when your stuff is HUGE and EXPENSIVE!

So you hire a construction crane instead of lugging the crap down stairs and in elevators, which would further slow your process… and you pay probably over a $1,000 a day to rent it!

Oh, and if you're wondering: they're moving to New Jersey! Her world tour is starting with a move — fitting!

Way to go, SeaWorld!

A four DAY old crane chick was rescued by SeaWorld Orlando and after careful examination, it was deemed that the chick wasn't ready for the wild.

The sandhill crane chick is currently learning from an adult rescue about the necessary behaviors to survive in the wild.

Once the chick has fledged or gained the feathers to fly, both the chick and adult will be released.

Filed under: BirdsCrazzzzy

Just like Bugs Bunny, this crane shouldv'e taken that left turn at Albuquerque!

A rare Asian Hooded Crane has been spotted in Tennessee everyday since mid-December.

This species of crane is normally only associated with northern China and Russia but it has been hanging with his buddies in the U.S!

A flock of sandhill cranes normally have their winter vaycay in the Hiweese Refuge in southeast Tennessee. The Asian hooded crane is currently with the sandhills.

Normally, the hooded crane goes to Japan for winter but it looks like this one had other plans!

Over 700 bird enthusiasts have "flocked" to see this rare bird. People from Russia have even flew to Tennessee to see the bird.

Whooping cranes have also been spotted at the refuge.

Looks like that wrong turn paid off!
