This is my papercraft daruma doll. I made him earlier this week because I needed a motivational boost. Daruma dolls are cool because they are not only symbols of good luck, but they encourage you to make your own luck. When you buy a real one, its eyes are blank. You are supposed to decide on a goal and then draw in one eye. You can't draw on the other one until you make your goal happen! I wrote my goal on its head. It was to finish my technology report for my Methods and Materials class. I handed it in today, so now he gets another eye. See him in his eyeless glory after the jump.
|Daruma is missing an eye :(|
|Goal achieved! Did I mention you're supposed to burn it when your goal is reached?|
