Spark share...Uplift...

Hey spark sisters! I just wanted to share some ideas for the class I will be teaching at Spark No.2 
Supply list first of all...
Trimmer
scissors
adhesive
wet glue
small hole punch
8-10 Wallet size photos 
Small lamp shade
That's it! Spark will provide the rest!

So first of all let's talk the lampshade...It will be the base of your project...
think UPLIFT...
The lampshade in the photo is as big as you will want to have to carry if you are on a plane, train or walking...teehee
If you are a "local spark" the sky's the limit...Also, keep in mind where you will want to "HANG" your inspiration piece...so size is up to you...
I used a side table lamp shade. I got it at my local thrift store and it was $4.00. You can get them at walmart, target any home decor store. They are cheap! We are going to strip the fabric off of it and just use it's bones so color won't matter...
But BONES will...
You want a lampshade with Bones!
See all the bones in this one? LOVE...
If you have ANY questions about your lamp shade feel free to e-mail me!

Second let's talk wet adhesive...
You DON'T need all of these adhesives...I just wanted to show you a sample of wet adhesives that work...I personally use Glossy Accents and LOVE it...
For Photos...
I am asking you to bring 8-10 WALLET Sized photos...These photos should inspire you, be about you...What do you LOVE? Who do you LOVE? What are your favorite things, people, color, place...All about YOU...
Hole punch...
A traditional hole punch is going to be too big...So look for a smaller one. 
The rest is just easy! 
This is going to be a really unique class to YOU...I am so excited! We are less than a month away...
Sparks are flying...Product is arriving, the food is going to be amazing, classes are getting kitted, your swag bag is getting full and we are spending hours planning and creating handmade decorations to inspire! 
Like I said...Can you feel it?
Sparks are flying...
So excited....
Kiss kiss

Yikes! I am soo excited!! We're flying in from KC so we'll hit a Target for the lampshade once we get to SLC! :) Can we get a comprehensive supply list soon to cover all the projects--or is what Margie listed everything we need? Can't wait!

I'd love more clarification from Margie on the size of the lampshade needed. It's hard to tell the height from the photo and the description is a bit vague. Would love an actual measurement! I'm afraid if mine is too big that I won't have enough photos.
