I'm making teacup lamps. The bases are ready. I'm waiting for my order of rings so I can make the shades. I'll post pictures once I get them made.

Oh and lastly, I keep my prayers for each product that I make flowing in abundance to God.

There are so many crafty people in this world and I learn from them as much as I can. I always have some project going on in the craft room which inspire another and another and another. I'm online a lot checking out other crafty people. Like http://www.myvictorianelegance.com/table.html. I love her hat lampshade! I want to make one too! And these soaps are just the cutest at http://www.specialtysoapshop.com/. Someday I'll make soap again too but they won't be as nice as these are!
Fabrics also inspire me. I like to think about what lamp they would look great on or maybe a treasure gift box.
Hmmm....I feel like getting inspire right now.

A nice older lady next to me offered to take my picture. She was a bright spot in my day.

I just finished this order tonight with Keith's help. These teapots and canister from Pfaltzgraff turned out really nice. The shades are handmade by me and the Pfaltzgraff custom-made into lamps by Keith. We are lighting up the world one lamp at a time! I like making lamps for people and making new friends.

I met Barbara at the Wine Festival last weekend as she was looking for items for her shop. Besides the tea products, I saw that she carries inspirational gifts and books, personalized stationary, personalized jewelry and gifts, social and business favors, and harvest themed products like maple syrup from New York.
Time Pieces is a nice gift shop with quite a few tea related items. I saw some very nice teapots. She has two of my teapot lamps there now, as well as the Coral Butterflies, Green Striped, and Country Goose lamps. If you are in Fredonia, check out this unique shop .

I had lots of comments on the Dutchess victorian lamp (The fly on the lampshade stayed all day!). The blue baby shoe lamps, and the photo lamps were popular also, though no one purchased. I saw eyes light up when they saw the teapot lamps but no one said anything to me. I made lots of contacts with people who said they would look at my website or call. Time will tell...
The music was very loud but didn't bother me too much. When I got tired of it, I put my iPod on with music I like. The flies were a pest. I guess the fair had just finished. The cows went home but left the flies behind. Theme song for the day was "Shoo fly, Don't bother me!"
Tomorrow's another long day but hopefully a profitable one.

This weekend we saw this moth on the side of our house near the front door. Very unusual and big.
All God's creations are sooo beautiful. They not all be the best to have around all the time; but they are all unique and so creative. I'm glad He made us in His image so we can be creative too.
I'm being creative now with making a victorian shade. It is all handsewn and will be beautiful when I finish it. I need to do the shurring of the georgette over the top portion and the sugar beading on the bottom before the trims are added.
