If you love to craft and have a hard time seeing the little objects that are part of fine detailed crafting you are going to love the Light View LX Magnifying Lamp I have been using. Sturdy, bright light a powerful magnifying lens had made my crafting less frustrating.
I love to craft, all kinds of crafts. But a lot of the crafting that I do requires me to see well. Finding small stitches in my crocheting or removing little pieces from a vinyl project cut file can be so frustrating. Especially here in Ohio where the weather can be gray half of the year, I have a hard time seeing the small objects I am working with. I then get frustrated and want to not even start.
One of my favorite projects is to work with my Cricut Cutting Machine and decorate project with adhesive vinyl. However, once the image is cut on the Cricut you have to weed out all of the vinyl that is not the design. I use to dread this process as it was painstaking, I could never find my readers and the light in my craft room is a bedroom ceiling light.
Once I found the XL 2 in 1 Magnifying Lamp all that changed. I now had a bright light to work with and the magnifying lens is a life saver. The lamp is strong with a heavy base and an adjustable arm, with two sets of brightness.
The bright light makes it easy to see even when I am working late at night or in the cold Ohio Gray. The magnifying lens that opens from the top makes the weeding process so much easier.
You can see how large of a viewing area I have and how much light it projects on my project. I have also use the light with some of my crocheting when it is evening and I am having a hard time seeing where the stitches are.
This lamp includes a 9 Watt power-saving integrated LED light fixture so that you will never have to replace the lights and is projected to last 20 years. The base is heavy but that heavy base makes the arm adjustable without having the lamp tip over. The lamp is a 2 in 1 as it comes with an extension rod so you can make it into a floor lamp that can sit next to a chair or a table.
I use photo lights when I take pictures of my recipes for the blog. I have my Brightech lamp right at my photography table and use it to help light my recipes for my blog pictures. The lamp help give more light in the evening without casting a yellow tone on my work.
