Cute or Wasteful?

On Christmas Eve, a woman sat outside, freezing, and crocheted this. She called it her Christmas present to NYC. The park curator ripped it apart first thing Christmas morning.

What do you think?

Is it art? Is it creative? Or, is it wasteful? Should she have spent her resources on sweaters for homeless folks? Should the park curator take it down a notch?

However you look at it, it was a lot of yarn and a lot of time. Art? Waste?

It is Yarn Bombing and it is art. Art is wasteful, but so is golf and hockey. However, it makes people happy being this wildly creative. Google "Yarn Bombing" to see many more examples. This is a great one. Probably done by a crew. http://www.scotsman.com/spectrum/Yarnbombing--a-sort-of.6665688.jp

Denise,

I had no idea. I did google it and there is a ton of amazing info on yarn bombing. I think I will start bead bombing. I could not find anyone doing that. Thanks for contributing to my quest for creativity!

One of the best qualities of Mirosoft Office 2010 in particular is its organization. Microsoft word is more sleek, user-friendy, and intuitive. The pitfall of many of microsoft's programs is not in the options the program offers, but in the delivery of the program itself. With download Office 2010, Microsoft has managed to maintain and expand their options, while organizing and designing menu toolbars in a way that better fits the modern Office user.
