I’m not entirely sure when I ceased to be aware of where my head was in relation to other solid objects.
I don’t recall a childhood filled with embarrassing encounters with monkey bars, desks and other seemingly very avoidable obstacles. (of course “not remembering” could be the first sign of the problem I guess)
But it has become an……issue. Which brings me to my latest craft show display idea. Or rather a revision of an older idea.
It worked great!
I smacked my head on it!
I would say to myself “there’s that thing there don’t hit your head on it” and promptly hit my head on it.
I think we can all agree that nothing says “trust my skills and craftsmanship” like greeting your customers with a trickle of blood rolling down you face having just run into your own display.
Sooooooo a change was needed.
(Also I discovered that while it was great it was also a bit long to fit easily in the Fit)
This time around I wanted to display my new, large, Patent Image signs but I also wanted to survive the experience. So, out came the saw and a redesign.
The goal was smaller pieces that would fit in the car and could also be put together in various combinations.
It worked pefectly!
But best of all they create a very solid looking wall of stuff. No one could possibly run into it.
OK, I ran into it.
But just with my shoulder! That’s totally different! (It sounded like the world’s worst designed wind chimes – all clanking wood). Didn’t hurt! Didn’t break (me or the product)!
Craft. Show. Display. Nirvana!
