So back to where I left off with my studio reorg………I have most of my beads now in the new bins again which are literally covering EVERY surface on 3 walls of my studio. I still have another shipment of the 70 drawer units coming!! (and more beads on the way..shhhhhhhhhhhhh)
CAN YOU SEE THE REFLECTION OF MY BANANA TREE IN THE MIRROR OUTSIDE THE STUDIO WINDOW?
As I wandered from drawer to drawer unit looking for things yesterday, I was getting so frustrated with the lighting. With my bad eyes lighting is of utmost importance and there are “dead” spaces in the room even though I have incredible lights to start with….. 8 , 4 foot OTT light units AND swing arm lamps on the tables!! They are awesome!
So I was pointing out to Steve what his weekend would entail…….going to Home Depot to purchase directional lighting for the ceiling…like little track lights or something that I could aim where I want them.
YOU CAN SEE WHERE I WANTED THEM…ON THE CEILING OVER THE YELLOW TABLE
Well that man of mine can be VERY quick thinking on his feet when it comes to pulling an idea out of the hat that will save him a weekend of standing on a ladder and listening to my directions…I don’t blame him…lol. Out of his mouth immediately came the suggestion…..”you need a light like the ones they use in a mine on a hardhat! That way your light is with you all the time”
Ok…I shot that idea down pretty fast. I could just envision myself in a sweaty army surplus hardhat with all my layers of magnification, my dust mask., and safety goggles. Lord it was not a good visual!!!
Steve immediately put my mind to ease with the solution below. REI has dozens of these lightweight headlamps you see in the images below!! He saw them on the Amazing Race!
The band is soft and adjustable, I forget I’m wearing it the thing is so light!!! It has spot light beam, flood light, high, medium and soft light in each mode, the lamp tilts down and up for directional lighting…. and best of all…a flashing hazard light!!!! Steve thinks that should be on all the time!!! LOL! All this for 35.00 and I can see better than I have in YEARS!!! I’m hooked!! I want one of these implanted in my forehead permanently!!!!! Thank you Steve!!!
