Altered Night Light Lamp!

I so appreciate the advice yesterday on what to do with those scraps! I wish I were as organized as some of you are, but truth be told, I am simply not. I am disorganized. I am a tornado in the craft room. I am messy. And honestly, I am starting to come to terms with that side of me! LOL!

Last fall for the Circle Magazine I took an inexpensive night light at Michaels and prettied it up a bit using Provo Craft's Daisy Quilling kits. The flowers were layered, inked, and glittered. The leaves were cut using felt for a bit of texture and softness. The swirls were cut from one of my cartridges, but it has been so long, that honestly, I can't remember which one! (Sorry!) I adhered a wide piece of lace around the lamp shade to help draw the eye into the center.
These Quilling kits really do make the most gorgeous flowers!

mmmmmm......I love anything that sparkles! ; )

I have lots of shopping to do to prepare for Thanksgiving! And I need to clean my very messy house! I certainly can't have people over in the state it is in now! ; )

Have a wonderful weekend! Thank you as always for stopping by!!!!!
