I made a circle with a smile for a mouth on yellow paper, because it was sunshiny and bright.

My crafty companion is always smiling. I love you smiles, ice cream smiles and of course sneaky 5yr old boy smiles.
Letting go scares me. Not following my to do list makes me wacky. But sometimes I really need it. Today was one of those days when I needed to let go. And I needed a smile. Letting go for the day I headed to the Re-Use Center in the middle of the day with my crafty companion in search of something to make me smile.
Can you see the tag? It reads “Working”. At first glance not much is working with this lamp, except the awesome yellowness that it is!
Hooray for yellow in appropriate places!
The yellow-white shade is not as cool. Not a worry.
Scrap material selection brings me to this – not bad for using present resources.
After finishing all the stitching I slide it over the shade to check the fit. Amazingly I did it right on the first time (this is not the case with me, ever). I decided to use the Amazing E6000 to attach the outside edges to the shade. As I went around the shade I used clothespins to hold it in place while the glue dried. Next time I do this I’ll try another glue choice, probably hot glue, to compare.
