Drawing for the giveaway on Friday

so,...all you have to do it leave a comment HERE, and I'll put your name in. You can see the giveaway HERE.
Now that the new sets of Crafty Secrets "Clear Art Stamps" have been released, I can share some of the projects I've been working on using them.
You can bet that the "Altered Art" set, is one of my FAVORITES!!! ummm... wings, crown, wand... all the good stuff! lol
You can check out all four new sets here on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog.
I've used this photo of my sister Donna when she was little before, but it's just so perfect for this stamp set, I had to!

I embossed everything I stamped with Silver Tinsel embossing powder.
All the papers are also Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage.
I was going to get busy setting up the big tree today, but didn't get that far. I did get my little pink and silver tree set up in my studio...(does that count?) I love the ambience of the little lights. Not like I'm sitting in here with "dim" lighting. lol Pretty much have to have the light ON when I'm creating ,but I do love soft lights.
Actually, it's always been an issue around here... Dan likes all the big overhead lights on in the house, and that drives me nuts! I'm all about dim lighting (other than when I'm working). I think it's relaxing. (and you don't notice the dust)ha! I am obsessed with small lamps... I love how they look and I love the lighting. I just never really noticed how that is slightly over done in my studio. 4 LAMPS and 2 SETS OF WHITE LIGHTS??? (my room is not very big)

Here's my little pink and silver tree

I saw this lamp shade at the antique store and fell in love with it. I told the guy, he could keep the lamp, I just wanted the shade! I just love the pattern and colors in it!!! I put it on a lamp I already had.

Little pink lamp that sits on my desk.

This is a silly little lamp , that I've had for a long time. It's green, and it's a cool shape..that's all that matters.... I LOVE GREEN and always have. I dressed up the shade with lace pieces and trims.

I have a string of white lights that runs along the top of my Hoosier too. ( I know's ridiculous)lol

I've had that fabric hanging lamp for a long time. I found it at Z gallery, on sale. ( was on sale, I had too)
See what I mean... I LOVE little lamps!
I do love the lighting they put off , and even though , when I'm working in here, I have to have the overhead lights on, but when I'm just reading emails or blogging , I really enjoy it.

Okay...better start turning off lights... it's almost bed time. hah
Hope you had a great day!

I love all of your little lamps! I'm not big on bright overhead light either so Corey had to install dimmer switches in all the rooms. I even have one in my bathroom! :) Love your silver & pink tree!

OOOH OOOH, Pick me (waving hand in the air)!
First, I want to say how completely jealous I am that your studio is so cute! As for the lamps, I don't think you can have too much ambient light when you are working on projects and such. I have one well positioned lamp, but I wish I had more.
Also would you mind telling me who makes the chipboard letters that spell out JOY in the giveaway. I love that style lettering.

Thanks for a chance.

Hey Vicki! Just wanted to thank you for the tour of your scrapping room lamps! I'm like you, overheads seem harsh and ugly to me. Even in my studio, if the sun is not shining I use the Ott lights that are small and and have adjustable arms. Hope you are feeling better soon. I really enjoy your blogging feed!

I am in total agreement with you on the lights! I loooove dim lighting! MAybe because it always makes the house seem cleaner! No one can see the dust that way! LOL! I think your crafting space is darling....mine is just crowded and stuffed! Although I do have a cute scrapbook tree in it....maybe I will have to post!
