Finally, it's finished and up. All I can say is....it's huuuuuuuuuge. H.U.G.E. I'm trying to decide if this is going to be it's permanent home, or maybe the bedroom (my upcoming project.) This is what I do, I change my mind. I drive myself crazy, but, you know, what'rya gonna do. It's growing on me in the dining room though, so for right now, this is where it will stay.
*UPDATE* - There are several people that feel they were the inventor of this lantern, I freely say (as I have always said) that I am not one of them. I saw Kara Paslay's (who claims it was entirely her idea) version, and tweaked it to make it my own. There is also another person that apparently felt she invented it back in 2009 and wants credit. Her name is Aimee Cavenecia. The funny thing is, I'm the one that made this one. Everyone else feels the need to get their name in there somewhere just because it was so popular, however, I initially credited who I needed to, and then the project became mine. But, I digress. I guess what it comes down to is....if you would like to credit someone with the "invention" of this lantern. Pick one (not me.) BUT, if you would like to use the pictures that I took of my lantern in my home. You need to credit me and link back. Thanks so much!!!
