Today, I took the boring paper shade off my desk lamp, grabbed a sharpie and covered it with words….more specifically, I listed the names of the artists, projects, and albums I’ve been a part of.  Though my handwriting can be funky at times, and I have a tendency to write downhill, I love the way this turned out.  as simple as this was to do, it’s transformed my workspace and has given it a sense of whimsy.
What You’ll Need:
Paper lamp shade
New sharpie marker (i used brown)
Words, thoughts, song lyrics, poems, quotes, etc
Starting at the top of your lampshade, begin writing.  If you’re selection is short, you may find you need to repeat it a time or two.
Place shade on lamp, and turn on light.  Ta-da!
