A few announcements, then we'll get to the
good cute stuff.
1. Until I get unpacked, settled in, and on a normal schedule, ((which should be in the next week or two)) all Favorite Things Friday, Handmade Monday, and other "routine" posts will be postponed.
2. If you would like to advertise with Yellow Songbird, please e-mail me for the new 2011 rates.
3. Oh, Sweet Joy will (re)open up shop on Friday, January 14th. Get ready & excited for new fabric frame necklaces, headbands, earrings, as well as new products soon to come.
I was a bit distracted yesterday and couldn't quite get in the groove of unpacking. This lamp was a thrift store "score" when Chase & I were engaged and working at a summer camp together. On one of our days off, I found this yellow lamp and had to have it. I'm pretty sure it only cost $7.
3 moves later, the lamp shade was a bit
beat up distressed looking. I got this fabric from City Craft in Dallas last Spring & had been using it for my craft show table.
Inspired by this Restyle on Skunkboy Creatures, I decided to cover the shade with it and use some bias tape from my stash for the bottom trim.
I'm pleased with how it turned out! It doesn't let very much light through, but it's pretty darn cute, if you ask me! :) It took about 30 minutes, using my glue gun. Not too shabby!
What project(s) are you working on?
