Monday Dose of I: Go(ing to) Fly a Kite







Hope you had a great weekend everyone... I'm back with a Monday Dose of Inspiration to kick-start a wintry windy spring week. As you know I have a few projects underway and each is going so well, I'm adding a new one: I want to hold the First Annual Bonbon Oiseau Kite Flying Festival Extravaganza to welcome spring only I've been looking everywhere for the little paper kites kids fly in India, especially during the yearly Spring Heralding festival called Mankar Sakranti, where rooftops all over India are filled with kids flying kites! Kites to no avail--I can't find them here in the states.
I found this bit of inspiration from the amazing files of my newest flickr crush, Meanest Indian, now I just want to bring these kites here for the First Annual Bonbon Oiseau Kite Flying Festival!
