The Madison Lamp Review + giveaway link



This is one part of my creative space. It's newest addition is my new lamp.
I was sooo excited when Buyster Lighting sent it to me because I find it quite hard to sew with the eco globe in the ceiling. As I try to do some sewing in the evenings I really needed good lighting.



The Madison lamp is a one light desk lamp in a black finish.
It uses a standard (not bayonet) bulb up to 60W.

The best feature for me is it's spring-reinforced adjustable arm.
I can bend the head and the arm so it shines directly at my needle so I can see where I am sewing. This is particularly great when I am doing appliqueing.


It has a heavy desk mount is not too heavy and not too light :: so it stays in place where I need it.
The only thing that it needs is an extra tightening screw for the head so it stays firmly in place when you twist it to shine where you want. I found that it would not stay where I wanted it to and adjusted the arm to accommodate.

It would be even better if it came in other colours, as black is the only option.
Other than that it's terrific, affordable and compact.

Now back to daydreaming about my hand-made Xmas list... speaking of which I will be giving away some of the fabric below.



One lucky reader will recieve half a metre of each of these fabrics (not the skirt) and little goodies. Just leave a comment and I will draw one winner out on the evening of Sunday, 22nd Nov EST. Everyone welcome to comment.

There's also a Mega Giveaway over at *Make it Perfect*.
You better get in because you'll serious regret the chance to win fabo prizes!

Better go, screaming baby in the background. You know how it is...

  1. I have a similar lamp and it also has a floppy head - mine is a case of a child being a bit too gung-ho with it though!

    Please count me in for your giveaway - those fabrics are gorgeous!

    (BTW - I assume you mean 22nd Nov, not Oct. Blame the baby-brain!)

The cutest labels - Hippo Blue

This is my youngest daughter Jacquie. Jacquie is 3, turning 4 very soon and goes to day care once a week. She also has speech therapy once a week and bad mummy packs her food in plastic bags and old lunch boxes and scribbles her name on paper labels. 
Jacquie is very happy today because she's sporting a brand new lunch box which has her name imprinted on it and it was made by Hippo Blue. Jacquie is in dire need of special name labels and that is where Hippo Blue saved my day and made everything look pretty. Hippo Blue made up a batch of their Vinyl Label Variety pack and I could not be more pleased. I've had other labels before and these ones are quite impressive. Why? well because there's a lot more variety. I like how there are different sizes so I can plaster her name on all her pieces she needs for day care and school.
Did you see those cute footprint stickers? They're shoe stickers. How cool! We also recieved round dots and new square ones which I've never se…

Cooking under pressure

The other day I saw a huge stack of Bellini multifunction cookers in front of Target. Of course the black and sleek packaging and design caught my eye and I stood there having a look at what they were selling. It was an all in one pressure, rice, porridge, cake, steam and slow cooker. It was half price so I really couldn't resist. I plonked it in front of the pram and the toddler walked.
I tried it with rice yesterday and it was fine but wasn't happy about how loud it was as it let out the steam and it spurted rice water over the lid so it doesn't win any gongs in that department. However, I made 15min soy chicken for lunch today so I was really pleased with that. In fact, I don't know how I lived without a pressure cooker for so long! I use to cringe about how it would take me 30mins at least to make a meal and now I can go from frozen to the table in about 25mins. How awesome!
I made this soy chicken using 8 drumsticks, 1/2 cup soy, 1 cup of vegetable stock and set …

Laser Eye Surgery

< feeling sleepy Blogger doesn't like any of my camera pictures at the moment so I can't show you the pictures taken while I was having my eye's lasered. Here are the pics that Blogger decided it would upload of my eye surgery. I finally decided not to wait any longer and after I saw an advertisement at the local medical centre for the Sebban Eye Centre I decided to see if I was a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. The check only takes 30mins and boy was I glad to hear that I was! I booked an appointment the very next day but I had to still wait 6weeks.
< during the laser!
A week has passed now and I still have slightly blurry vision since having TransPRK or Advanced Surface Laser. Sometimes when I use the saline drops I have clear vision even from the kitchen to the lounge which is fantastic. I just wish it would hurry up so I can get on with things. I have to have IE at 125% otherwise I find it hard to read and I haven't been on the net for a few days now…
