Craft Lamp Catastrophe
So, this week the bulb in my craft lamp decided to die. While not exactly a catastrophe of the highest order, it is pretty serious for me - I didn't realize that I was so dependent on that lamp. I have a Daylight lamp like the one shown below - except mine is copper instead of silver. The replacement bulb, also shown, is almost $18 - I can't decide if I should try a knock off bulb or order the name-brand replacement.
What I do know is that I won't be stitching much until I get a new bulb. I have a great lamp with florescent bulbs in it, but it just isn't the same as the Daylight lamp.
You can read my review of the Daylight Lamp over at About.com Cross Stitch.
I also started a little snowman kit - I don't have a photo of it to share yet. I was so glad I had it in my purse because yesterday I ended up waiting MUCH longer than I anticipated while my DH (Dear Husband) was completing a business transaction. I read a book on my Kindle app until my phone started to die and then I remembered I had some small kits in my purse so I took one out and started in on it. Always be prepared!
