A phase is a period of time when a crafter is deeply immersed in a particular endeavor. To the best of my memory I've gone through (and remain in some of) the following phases - embroidery, needlepoint, sewing (clothes), cross stitch, decoupage, painting, lampshade making, mosaic, gardening, furniture painting, pillow making, sewing (curtains, bedding), slipcover making, mirror frames making, soap making, candle making, paper mache, pallet table making, blanket making, and probably a few other things. I wrote about his once here.
So over the last few weeks I pulled out some lamps from the lamp stash and changed the color. Then I picked out a couple of naked lampshade forms from the lampshade stash and covered them with some fabric. Fabric that was in - what else? - my fabric stash.
There will be no stories today about how these lovely lampshades got their clothes. They are just glad they didn't have to go out in public naked.
The lamps were a little plain so they picked out some jewelry to wear to the party. Sexxehhh!!!!!
There was a little posing. Don't tell this one his cord is showing. He would be embarrassed. He probably did that because he was mad I didn't get out the tripod to take his picture.
Maybe next time. Someday soon tell you all about how you can dress your lampshades like this all by yourself. Because it's not hard. Maybe then you can join me in a lampshade phase of your own. Update: Tutorial for lampshade on the left is here. Tutorial for the lampshade on the right is here.
Have a great weekend!
Make something wonderful today!
