Ball O' Paper

I made this awhile ago, but finally found a good light to make it an actual lamp. It looks fancy and intricate but is actually pretty easy using these instruction here. Its just paper cut and looped together and a cord with a bulb on the end. Don't worry I have a low wattage fluorescent light bulb and we don't leave this on very often either. But it does make for a cozy dining table. And looks great unlit too.

January Birthday Gifts

Just some simple things...
An Ikea mirror painted and decorated with driftwood.. yay
This was for my mom for her birthday (for her beachhouse... now she just needs to get one of those!)
This is a hooded sweatshirt that I stencil with Calvin and Hobbes for my bro-in-law. I've been really into stenciling things with freezer paper lately.
