First off, I'm a super newbie, so I'm sure I'm erring somehow, plus I think you need to follow the link at the end to see any pics.

So I saw this challenge and thought to myself, I don't want to quilt with LEDs, it just sounds like an accident waiting to happen.  Then I realized that I could craft a lamp, but didn't want to spend any money, so I had to scavenge my house for items.  Hangers twisted into a frame and painted black, twinkle lights stuffed inside, and oiled paper tied on, and ta-da! I have a new light fixture.  I haven't any photography skills, so the pics don't do it justice.  

I'm still not sure if it looks lame-o, or kinda cool.  


And it is a challenge in and of itself to photograph an illuminated light fixture!

Comments, criticism, and feedback welcome (in fact, please!)

I think it's awesome! And like the fact you used wire hangers to make the base (not to mention making it easy to hang).  Cheesy You can put pics in your post by clicking on the pic and scrolling down to where it says "copy and paste this into your Craftster post". Do that to all the pics you want in your post and you're done!

Thank you! It worked! (umm after I posted at least 10 times.  I really am a newbie here.  And technologically challenged to boot. Undecided)
