Creativity

Over the last week or two, my nesting instincts have gone into overdrive. I've been unpacking boxes (one of which I'd packed in 1994 according to the papers I'd wrapped everything in), choosing paint colors, ordering furniture, that sort of thing.

Basically, I've decided that it's time to make my apartment into my home.

So I have a project for any of you who might be game.

I like to surround myself with pictures of my friends or with things that they've created. So your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to send me one of the following things:

1) A favortie photo of yourself or something that is important to you (preferably a photo that you took yourself)

or

2) A piece of art that you've made (it can be anything you like, but I have lots of small spaces to fill, so things that are postcard up to standard letter sized are best).

While you are welcome to send things to me via e-mail, I would actually prefer to get hard copies in the mail. Mostly because I'd like you to sign whatever you send me. If anyone wants my address, shoot me an e-mail.

So there you have it. I hope some of you give it a shot. I know a lot of you are extremely creative and I'd really like to have your art or photos hanging in my apartment.

I'll post pictures of anything I get in Flickr, so you can all be inspired by each other's creativity.

By the way, if anyone would like a photo or piece of art from me as a quid pro quo, I'm up for it. And at the very least, everyone who sends me something will get a (poorly) handmade Thank You card.

So the two foot by three foot photographic print I had made and framed for you won't work? Hmmm. Okay, I'll give it to a poor family. ;)

Oh, and about the reciprocation, I wouldn't feel right asking for more, after all of the nude photos of yourself you already gave me!

I guess also that the chicken wire and paper mache likeness of a hawaiian volcano is also out of the picture. Thats ok though I dont think they would let me ship you the baking soda it needs to erupt anyway.

I would be happy to send you a little something.

And what's this about nude photos of yourself? Just because I'm too old for you, doesn't mean that I can't enjoy them...

Let me know your address and I'll send you a piece of art.

Zeitzeuge said...

OH yes, and nude photo's are fine as well.

Well, my art-making days are in the dim and distant past, but I'll see what I can conjure up. What it lacks in artistic flair it will more than make up for in pretentiousness!

Quid pro quo

I'll send you nude photos for nude photos.

If you mail me your address (becky@beckycochrane.com) I'll send you some tiny artwork. Just 'cause I like you. =)
