Animated Valentine Greeting

As you might know I am having a lot of fun learning how to make small animated GIFs, and here is the newest one: An animated Valentine greeting πŸ™‚

I hope you will find my animations a little fun too, and will follow me on my continued work to become better making them, and become better making them better.

Lampshade Decoration

I bought a new ceiling lamp for my hallway, a LED lamp.

When I had installed the lamp I realized the light from it was far too strong for my not-so-big hallway, so either I had to buy another one, or I had to find a solution for the one I already had installed.

That was when I remembered the Christmas star decoration I have made a blog post about earlier.
It was made of nearly-transparent paper, and looked good on laps and in windows.

So I made a decoration like that, only a little larger to cover the entire lamp.

Important: Make sure that you only make this lamp decoration for lamps that don’t get too hot, otherwise I guess the paper could burn.

It makes the lamp shine with such a nice light now, enough so you can see everything clearly, but also subdued so the light doesn’t irritate your eyes.

Here is the link to how toΒ  make this lamp decoration:

Getting Rid of Stains on Marble

If you have a marble table, and it has got some stains and marks after wet glasses – don’t despair!

Here is a great tip that will come in handy after a party.
Maybe some of your guests at the New Year celebration placed a wet glass on your marble table, or on the marble windowsill.
You might even have marble coasters, and then the chance you have some rings on the marble is pretty great.

Marble with stains

What you will need is:

Lots of blotting paper, some distilled water and beeswax.
Tear the blotting paper into strips. Put the strips into distilled water until it becomes a mush.

Cover the stain with the mush and leave it for 5-6 hours.

Taking away the mush, the stains and rings will be gone.
But – the marble has lost its polish and looks a bit weird.
Fortunately this can easily be taken care of:
Polishing the marble with beeswax, and the table looks really fine again, as good as new.

Funny Animations (GIF)

I have always wanted to be able to make some of my clip art into animations, and have finally managed to make a couple of GIFs.

They are the very early start of something.
I am not quite sure of what this something is, and making a single animation takes me hours (I guess there is something I haven’t quite grasped yet).

But it is so much fun, and I am proud like a small child when I end up with an animation that actually works πŸ™‚

You can see all the animations I have made so far (3) and upcoming on my twitter account, but now and again I will post them here.

This last of the three animations is made as a Valentine greeting, but can of course be used anytime for a person you love.
