It only takes a few moments with the power out on a dark and stormy night to remind us how much light changes our world. In contrast, being kissed by soft, glowing light can transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. We all know that opening the door to the unusual is a wonderful way to usher remarkable memories in.
The chandelier pictured is one of only a hundred made by Hilden and Diaz, costing $4,500 (which fits right in with my mind's idea of my budget). The tutorial I've found shows us how to make one of these chandeliers with a little ingenuity and about $100 (and fits in with my pocketbook's current idea of sanity).
Since they end up using a 200 watt bulb, I might use one that has the top of the bulb coated, so that the light is focused upward and therefor gentler on the eyes. As an artist, I highly recommend buying a little more of everything than you need. Generally speaking, when I am starting to detest what I am working on, I know I am on the precipice of falling in love. For me, art is a process of letting go of perfection and opening to the process of creation. Rarely do I ever find satisfaction in a single sitting. You may. I build relationships and sometimes those need to gel over a few dates. Don't let that intimidate you... some of us have to relearn how to play (like myself) others can throw caution to the wind without a second thought. Both ways are perfect.
Creating magical spaces, filled with cozy fabrics and warm lights will help you feel at ease even when you are uncomfortable and in pain. And making you Royals feel spoiled, well that's my jam. I hope today's #LightSensitive DIY brought a touch of inspiration to your day.
Please remember, take wonderful care of yourself, so that we can also take care of one another.
