Sometimes the story behind the object that you create is more valuable than the object itself. You see, my wife is chronically organized and must keep a clean house always. I, on the other hand, have a great deal of chaos in my blood. Moreover, if I am not reminded of an object by seeing it, I forget that it exists.
The case in point illustrates this perfectly. My wife and I went to the library a few weeks ago and I got a half a dozen books. At home, she immediately put them in a basket and I promptly forgot about them. I was only reminded of the books 3 weeks later when the library emailed me about renewing them.
In the shower this morning (where I do my best thinking) it occurred to me that I should put them on the desk in my lab where my dear wife does not willingly tread. Then I thought that the books would get in the way unless I could organize them. Of course! I could print a book end! And then the mental leap: I could print a Laurie Anderson book end!!! I jumped out of the shower to write it down so I wouldn't forget it before I dried off.
Of course it doesn't have to be Ms. Anderson, it could be Bre, Tony, Colbert or any of the other great busts.
Print bust and bookends normally. Hot glue said bust to the bookend. Repeat. (You can also use mirror on the second print if you would like). Also, it wouldn't hurt to glue some felt onto the bottoms of the bookends. They tend to slide without it.
