I think most crafters understand the importance of good lighting, many of us sitting up doing some sort of craft till the early hours of the morning, I personally put it down to an overactive mind ha ha!
So I find that when my eyes are tired I need better lighting and I'm sure that most of you are the same, years of close up craft means I need all the help that I can get. I also find that home lighting and lamps cast shadows and are more of a warm lighting so colour matching can be an issue too.
I have been using Daylight lamps now for a good few years and in fact I have one in most rooms of my house. I love the white light. Chris often states that we are the brightest house in the street when I craft. I did a comparison a little while ago with my own lighting to show the difference and I have added it below to show you just how wonderful these are.
Join myself and the lovely Leonie on Create and Craft TV Friday 28th November at 4pm for some amazing lamps with amazing prices.

Below is a couple of photos took through the magnifier the first is without the lens and the second is with the lens
As you can see there is quite a difference and I love the fact that I can just push the lens to one side when I don’t need it.
The next couple of picture will show you an amazing difference, I took the first picture without using the Daylight lamp and the second picture with.
Without the lamp
With the Lamp
You can see it is a much clearer picture and truer colours by using the lamp
For me it is a must have, I do have a light box for my cards but to be totally honest it isn’t a patch on my lamps.
