Yeah to no gross food. My only thought on the lamps is quality control. I know you would make some really cool bases. You might just have some kinks to work out with the lamps.

I think lamps, like clocks, are a great idea. They both have a practical purpose, and therefore it is easier to buy them.
You might want to think about having two sets of electrical stuff put into them. The US has what, 110W, and the rest of the world has 220W? And as a member of the rest of the world, I would very much like your art to brighten up my day :-)

YAY!! NOODLE SOUP!! LOL a welcome sight, I'm sure!! hahaha!! You're AMAZING with all that you get accomplished!
The fun faced clocks are adorable! Lamps would be tres cool!!
Hope you have safe trip back Michelle! May God's blessings abound!


I don't have much use for lamps, but then, I don't really "need" the dozen clocks in my house either, but they are FUN~!


Wow, if you could make an adorable lamp that would be suitable for all of us who do close work, like rughookers, who are stuck with the boring OTT lighting, that would be great! If that would be cost prohibitive, what about coming up with something we could stick on them to spice them up? That would be Fun and add some great designs to the little cubbies where we hook.

Glad you got in those miles. I was with you every step.



I think your art would translate quite nicely to lamps........what a fun whimsical lamp it would make............it would quite literally light up our life!

Love, Violette
