Nursery Lamp Project Published!!!

I am excited to share my first officially published project with you. It was in the March issue of Ready, Set, Create E-Magazine!!! (and I couldn't post it for 30 days!) This was a special Altered Project issue, and it was loaded with super ideas...and I was so delighted to be asked to submit a piece! I also learned that it isn't easy to do something with just three photos and five steps...and the five steps aren't supposed to be paragraphs! LOL Well, you can see my three photos, and the five steps included cutting out the frame, name, boat, stars, and red trim. The white pieces are embossed. Then it's all put together, and VOILA'!! A great light for Porter's Nursery. Are you inspired to do something fun for someone you love? It's easy peasy....give it a try! I even saw pre-drilled glass blocks in the craft store the other day :o)
Happy Crafting!

I just found your blog from a feature on the "Crafty Storage" blog, so of course, I had to check it out. I absolutely love this nursery light idea! I have several blocks but developed "crafter's block" thinking about how to use them. Now I KNOW! Thanks for the inspiration.
