I haven't been in years, but does Windsor Button have craft stuff?  They're right downtown.

I tried the flourescent bulb, but the shade clips on, and the bulb I had was funny shaped and wouldn't stay on.  I've switched it to 40W and had no problems so far, and I think I'm ready for 60W.  The lamp itself is only rated for 60 so I don't think I'll go over that.

here's some pictures of my lite brite table.
i found this old table at a yard sale, and just screwed a piece of painted pegboard to it.



the table was like a box with one corner cut off, which is where the pegboard is.



i put a fluorescent cabinet light under the pegboard, the covered the open sides with black craft foam.

this is a picture in the dark on valentine's day.



the board i am using is only 17x17, so i can change the picture often without too much effort.  i dont have plexiglass over it, because i just use the other parts of the table, but i can easily put down books, magazines, or other flat things over the lite brite pegs with out messing anything up.

hey everyone...i've been lurking around here for a while, but only just dragged out my camera to take pictures of my crafty advenures.

here's my slide lamp shade:
http://www.auroraseven.com/alison/craftster/lamp1.gif

it was super easy to make.  i had an old lampshade that was falling apart, so i ripped off the paper.  I punched a hole on all 4 sides of the slides, then connected them with jump rings to each other and the shade frame.  Some day, I might make it longer, but it was hard to punch the holes, so I stopped at 4 rows.

i'm also kind of worried about what wattage bulb to use.  it has a 25 in there now, which doesn't really give off enough light to make it useful.  anyone have any experience with higher watts without harming anything?

here's some closer shots...thanks!
