I should be liberally deluging this site with photos and tales. but nope. Instead I am frantically getting centerpieces ready for this year's Honored Elder's Day at the State Indian Museum.
At first I planned adorable little paper mache grinding rocks & stones, sprayed with faux stone paint, surounded by beautiful silk oak leaves, genuine acorns and even some ground acorn meal in the bowl of each grinding stone. Lovely thought, right?
It dawned on me eventually it would take me longer than a day or two to construct 20 paper mache grinding rocks and my later idea of spray painting store bought styrofoam', was equally down the loo. Have you any more idea than I had how much crafts stores charge for the stuff we routinely toss away whenever we buy appliances?
So I thought, how's about a 3-D representation of the State Indian Museum's emblem: three eagle feathers? How simple! How elegant! how creative! How simple is that?
Woe is me.
Lovely vacation photos will damned well just have to wait until after Saturday. If I don't take up a hand full of feathers and try giving myself a flying lesson off the roof.
