I'm on a roll on this board
Actually the stuff in my room that's home dec-y is what happens to already have piccies residing on my hard drive already.
Working in a craft store can be dangerous for a creative like me....I have WAY too many ideas and WAY too little time and money! I gotta start selling some stuff to fund my habit. This project came about cuz I didn't like the lampshade on the lamp I had in my room. It was a simple blue lamp from K-Mart if I remember right and it was okay but too plain!
Hobby Lobby has self adhesive lampshades (9 different sizes/shapes!) and a few lamp part kits. Soon after the 4th last year I picked up a really cool wicker basket for 90% off, along with clearanced 4th fabric and then grabbed some by-the-yard ribbon and beaded trim. Add a lampshade and the basket lamp kit and about an hour and I had a REALLY cool lamp that also doubles as storage!
Now that the bug has bitten me I have the parts for another lamp set aside. I tried to make a knitted capelet for myself for Easter and it came out WAY too small. Same size as the lampshade small. I have it stretched over a lampshade now and I recently used a 40% coupon to get a nice sleek black base but I'm still brainstorming on what else I want to do beyond sticking in a light bulb.
See what working around way too many cool crafts does to your brain and wallet?
