So I am the kind of Oma who wants to interact with her grandchildren. Every opportunity I get, I want to sit down and make anything with my kidlets.
Seven year Old Nai'a needed and wanted a lamp for her bedroom. They rent so aren't able to put holes in the walls or ceilings so we opted for a table top lamp.
Nai'a had the choice to remove the shade , paint it, or embellish it with beads. She opted to keep the lamp shade, but agreed with her Oma it needed COLOR. Her favorite colors are lavendar, pink and 'turquoloise"..that is how she pronounces it. So we picked those colored beads at the local craft store.
Nai'as 6 year old cousin Lauryn requested a birdcage hanging lamp for her birthday!!
TADA!! another(two) happy face(s) and a beautiful result!!
