Building lamps

I tried my hand at this last night. For the last ...I don't even know, but a LONG time, I had the same light in my room! It was a sweet little lamp with moons& stars on it. It reminded me a hat of a wizard would wear. Maybe that's a little weird, but here's a photo for proof:

See?! The only downside to my lamp was that it was starting to show it's age. It was making scary noises that sounded like there was a loose wire laying in water and it would flicker a lot. I wasn't ready to give up on it ..until Mom brought home a new lamp for me! It needed to be built though. Uh oh.

So, I slaved away while watching the ball game (ps the Lakers game the night before last? They lost. Sad day.) and eventually? I managed to put it together. The light bulb gave me a lot of grief because I thought it was supposed to just snap in. Noooo .. you have to turn it like a regular light bulb.

Stupid lamp. In the end.. I win! Sucks to be lamp. It now has to shower me with light whenever I click the On/Off button :) In honor, here is a late night lamp photo! I hope you appreciate how nice the light my lamp makes is ..or something. I know I appreciate the fact that it doesn't sound like it's going to explode or start sparking whenever I made ahaha

Slightly color changed ..because I was bored. Also, see that sweet medal? You can just call me the fastest runner EVER. Except the part where everyone got a medal .. and I wasn't the fast.
What have you put together lately? Anything? Are you way better at this stuff than me and actually done something crafty in the last little while? The most I can do is take extremely long to put together a lamp. I hope your skills are better than mine :)
