I had just coated the base with several coats of glitter and glue. Once completely dry I apply a couple of coats of clear spray to ‘set’ the glitter and minimize it’s ‘shedding’. Add a shade and a bulb and it’s ready to sell.
Alas, THIS is all that is left of it at this point! It apparently got knocked over one too many times while on display in my booth at Stars and the switch broke. Now I KNOW I ‘could’ buy the parts and replace them and re-wire the lamp; but I wanted to come up with ‘something else’ UNIQUE to do with it.
I already have that ‘something’ in mind, but I thought I’d also ask for YOUR ideas and input. And since it’s ‘Christmas time’, why not make it a contest with a PRIZE?!?!
So, here’s the deal . . . leave your suggestions as comments to me. Whomever has the BEST and most unique idea (OR actually guesses the same idea as I already have for it) wins a $20.00 credit to spend in my etsy shop.
There is a small hole on the top of it where the wire came through; and a small hole where the cord came out in the back (that can easily be ignored) but the hole on top will have to be ‘dealt with’ in some way in your suggestion.
Cut-off date for entries in December 5th. The winner will be announced on the 6th, and will be able to SHOP for their prize immediately. Michael will be judging the entries with me. (He doesn’t like MY idea for it at ALL!! But if you come up with the SAME idea as I did, you’ll still be the winner. Otherwise entries will be judged upon the following aspects of the idea:
EASE of completion. SPEED of completion. COST of completion. (Fast, cheap and easy being the BEST scores!)
Put on your thinking caps and start thinking . . . . . What would AJ do?!?!
