31 Little Things – 3

Today’s post is a series of four pictures. So what makes me happy today?


This is an Ottlite. It’s energy efficient full spectrum lighting. It’s fantastic for all kind of tasks, but if you’re a crafter who works with beads, needlework, polymer clay and more, this little light is a must have. They’re expensive, but they can be found at discount stores for 50% off or more. I was wanting one for a long time and one day I went to Tuesday Morning and saw this little baby sitting all alone on the shelf. I couldn’t believe the price. It was incredible!

So what’s the fuss? The first picture is my work area in “natural light.”

And this picture is with the Ottlite turned on:

This little baby has revolutionized my ability to work on my jewelry.I don’t have to stop when the sun goes down. My previous overhead lighting just didn’t have enough oomph for me to see at night. Now? I can work on a project whenever I want to.

They have a bunch of different styles and sizes, but for my needs, this is just perfect.

For the record, I bought this light myself. I’m not sponsored by Ottlite, I’m not being compensated for writing about this little light. I bought it, use it, and love it. If you’re in the market for a great desk lamp or even a floor lamp, check these out.
