I have so many half-finished projects taking up work space (and making me feel bad) so have decided that 2015 is the year I return to the concept of Finish it off Friday (feel free to join in, if you have a similar problem.)
First up is a Megahouse candy jar from the Panda Candy Shop set #2 which I bought some time in 2012, thinking it would make a great light. (You can see it in the corner of Kaet's Place from June 2013)
I had reasons to not complete the (rather small) task of drilling a hole in the back of it to fit the wiring for a bulb:
* I didn't have a drill. (Until I did: after reading Otterine's post in December 2012, I went to buy a Dremel and ended up with a cheap knock-off, recommended by the chaps in the hardware store).
* I didn't have anything to hold it steady while I drilled it, (Until I did).
* I was a fraidy-cat, thinking I'd do it all wrong and end up splitting the plastic and wrecking the whole thing.
This afternoon I took a deep breath, Pulled out and set up the vice. Pulled out and unwrapped the drill. Found the masking tape. Held my breath.
And before I knew it there was a hole.
And a light.
