I Party With Trash

At the Art Center in Ozark we’ve been busy designing in the front Window. The above feature is a collection of shots I took during construction. This is the first time the window display has been changed since I’ve lived here. It’s looking quite fresh, I think, and it’s just in time for the change of the season.

The display will officially be finished by tomorrow. I have a few more newspaper flowers I will be adding. I don’t think a display can ever have too many flowers. If you live in town please stop by and check it out. The project was designed as a way to involve the community in recycled art. Recently some afternoons at the gallery were dedicated to making flowers out of¬†various materials. We have incorporated each flower into our new front window.
Because of all the work I did yesterday I neglected to answer some questions from The Homefront Team’s meet-up. Here they are a day late:
What is your most treasured posession?
My collection of music. If I didn’t have any musical accompaniment life would be unbearable.
What was the best gift that you gave someone?
I don’t fancy myself very good at giving gifts. This could be a cop-out answer, but nothing comes to mind. I would have to say anytime I buy something off a registry, it’s the best, for me.

How do you battle¬†a “crafter’s block?”
I think the best way to get out of a funk is to press on. Even at the worst of times, when I have no ideas what to make, I just pick something up and start working with it. In the worst-case senario I start by doing something I have already done. Eventually a new idea will emerge.
I would never let myself ignore working on a project until the feeling was over. I find that if I endure the situation I am more impressed by my results.
