A Finished Craft............


...........i had to announce that..... cause you know.... how often do i actually finish something??!!..lol... But perhaps you remember the glass gem/ mason jar / solar light project?? The original idea came from Kathe with an E (you can click to see her project) . But you know how things morph and become your own...... Well this became a much longer project than intended cause hubby didn't think they lit up 'properly' and you KNOW how he likes to 'fix' things.  :)  All men do i think.... Thats why we love them! 

Well he took the solar light thats inside apart...(oh God) and got out his soldering gun (double OMG) and he wanted to mount the solar panel thats on top of the solar light outside the jar because it was casting too big a shadow inside the jar and really only lit up half the jar. I mean i could see the problem .... i was just willing to live with it... lol... 

Well after many whispered curses and a few evenings spent pondering his dilemma he agreed to just let me put it together the way Ms Kathe with an E suggested........... we (he) mounted them on a couple Eucalyptus tree limbs we had..... drilled a hole up inside the limb and stuck a piece of rebar half inside the limb and half in the ground......  and wouldn't you know it ....... its been cloudy ever since........ so i haven't gotten a real good showing from them.  When i do i'll try to get a pic of them glowing...... So nice when i can say....... Project DONE!  Hugs! deb

Sounds just the sort of project for a husband - so perhaps I could get mine to do something like that while I clean out his wardrobe. Thanks for calling on me.

I bet they'll look lovely when fully lit.

Not all men love to fix things (voice of experience here). You're lucky you got one of those ;-)

What's up next project-wise?
