Create the purrfect beaded geometric necklace!
I was sent an OttLite to test out for Craft Test and it's made a huge difference to my crafting, especially my tutorial photos. It gets really dark here in Scotland in the winter, so if you want to craft in good light, you have to do it early in the day. However, I'm a bit of a night owl when it comes to creativity, so now with my new light, I'm able to craft and take photos into the night!

To show you what a difference it makes, I've made a tutorial with photos using the light on the left and photos without the light on the right.
