i like it the square way better! they seem to fit better on it, and it was probably less frustrating on the flat surfaces. wish i had thought of that.

as to that glue on the outside suggestion..... i thought the same thing with great optimism, but it actually takes even longer because you have to hold the stick there till it dries if you use non-hot types of glue, and it doesn't have a strong enough hold anyway and hot glue melts/burns right through the oh-so-delicate lampshade paper....maybe it would work on a fabric type of these lamps though now that i think of it.....

well i'm impressed at the rediscovery of my post! i haven't been here forever though. since people keep asking about what each person used to stick the umbrellas on, i used scotch tape as well. i think anyway you do it, it's going to be a little time consuming.

yep, that's exactly how!
and yes, I've wanted to try it out with all one colour too, but I can never seem to find a pack of umbrellas that isn't multi, and I'd have to by quite a few to get enough for a lamp of one.

thanks so much guys!
jjm: do you happen to know what kind of glue they used on television when you saw this? I tried white glue and hot glue; white didn't cut it on the thin paper, and hot glue just burned holes through it.

I think I have a story book on manners by the same illustrator.... Aliki, I think? If not it sure looks similiar.

extremely cute!
I especially love that it's not a cartoon goat; it's just the real deal. kind of like the goat has just eaten through the pillow or something.
just adorable.

mirandalea, I know exactly what you mean about the plain front shirts! everytime I wear this one, it's like I forget that there's even anything on the back and it feels so boring.....so I think I just might add a little guy up front. I shall report back with another photo upon completion!

also, those jellyfish photos are absolutely beautiful! very well done.

thanks guys!

crafty_dame: I trimmed about half the stick off, poked 'em in, and rolled the sticks in scotch tape from the inside. I have a feeling there's a better way to do it though, because it was fairly awkward to reach in and do that.....anyone?

wow...perhaps we need to have a jellyfish swap with all those jellyfish lovers out there!

onecraftybitch: I used satin stich on the large tentacles, chain stich pretty much everywhere else and maybe a little vine stich where it got dainty (not much though). Very easy, just time consuming -- especially filling in their 'heads' (do jellyfish have heads?).
