A Thousand Stars and Cranes

Here are some of the lucky stars
I've been trying to aim for a thousand of both, stars and cranes. Last year, that's when I started, I began with the cranes, I had 200 down, but for some reason they kept getting lost even though I had a HUGE container for them! I kept getting frustrated at the fact that they were lost and the thought that I would never finish bothered me.
One day my niece came from school, and said that her class was making an event that required paper cranes to decorate the classroom. I didn't hesitate. I just told her that she could take mine, and she did. Their class event went just fine!
Now, I am done with the thousand stars...well...I am at 800! And I'm still going!
