First things first...you know how when you haven't been sleeping well and you are waiting for the caffeine to begin coarsing its way through your veins and it is very early in the morning when you are typing up a new blog post and you refer to a "Violet" as a "Pansy"? You don't? Well then, never mind!
For those of you who don't know what I am talking about, I am going to let you live in blissful ignorance of my mistake and for those of you who do know, please don't hold it against me. I really do know the difference between those two plants.
We all have our moments!
Now, as I mentioned in my last post, I am easing into the New Year with some smaller projects, the first of which is giving some love to a little lamp in my daughter's room.
Purchased at Wal-Mart for $10 it was just the right size but I thought it needed to just a bit sweeter for my sweet little girl.
I think having the shade hanging crookedly helps with the
"Before-ness" of this picture don't you?
I didn't have any specific plan for the shade other than that I wanted to add some color to it. I found these darling little yellow rosebuds at the craft store.
(Yes! I went into the Craft Store to buy something Crafty. It's a New Year's miracle!)
I decided to just hot glue them around the top and the bottom of the shade to sweeten it up.
Then, with the thrilling sensation of having the hot glue gun in my hand giving me some extra courage I did something I have NEVER done before...
I STENCILED SOMETHING!
Granted, just one little something, but still...
Aren't you proud of me?
One little 'L' for one little Miss Lauren.
I'm kind of liking how it looks at night with the 'L' having a subtle glow.
So, if you really think about it, this was actually a fairly Big project for me.
Hot Glue Gun and Stenciling all at the same time?
History in the Making here folks!
Oh, and just so you know, this post is #99 for me.
That means the big #100 is up next!
