Origami USA 2014 Convention Countdown

A bit late in uploading this list and pics for the June Origami OUSA Convention but wanted to organize them so they don’t just get lost in the sea of twitter origami pics. I enjoyed last year’s countdown so much (blog entry here) I had to repeat it. It was a good way to get motivated and fold! Unfortunately there were some skipped days there, but that’s ok too. Glad my friend @pprfldr joined me this year.
Link to photos here (also gallery is posted below the list):

Hashtags used on twitter: #ousa14 #foldcountdown #origami
note that my friends @pprfldr and @animemiz and others used various hashtags so there is really no good way of keeping track of them. Maybe we will figure it out next year.
