Blogging From A to Z – 2018 – L is for

Welcome to the letter L in the A to Z Challenge for 2018.  This year I am working my way through the A to Z of Michaels Arts and Crafts store.  L is for Lighting.

They have some really unusual types of lights you can use to decorate your house.  I love these “trees” with the LED tips.

Wouldn’t this look cool on a table?

They have string lights too.  I’ve been thinking about getting some of the smaller ones to go around the wall of my craft room.

They are good for out in the backyard too.  

I like these colored pillars.
Then there are the more functional lights that you can use for reading or sewing or other crafting. 

L is also for Liquitex.  Liquitex is a brand of acrylic paints that Michaels carries.

It comes in all different colors and sizes, tubes and bottles.

Some of it is expensive and has to be locked up!

There are even some spray paint varieties, also locked up.

They make kits for collaging and photo transfers too.  These are something I think I’d like to look into.  Even I’m learning things as I go through this store.

Whimsical creations, doesn’t that sound like fun?  

Have you used Liquitex to make whimsical creations?  Need some outdoor lighting or branches of lights?  Share!

Be sure to visit the other A to Z gang and come back tomorrow for M, it’s gonna be a really fun one!

(Note:  I decided I should add a disclaimer to these posts because I certainly don’t want to give the idea that I am being paid by Michaels to do this or that they are furnishing me with material.  All pictures used in this blog series were taken by me at local Michaels stores, or are my personal pictures and every Michaels store may not have everything shown.)

  1. Janet,

    You’ve peaked my curiosity on the tree lights. Are these battery powered LEDs and if so, can you replace the battery once it dies or do you have to buy a new tree light? I really appreciate you sharing this under the letter prompt because I want to get some sort of lighted building that I can leave up when it’s not Christmas and these trees or tabletop LED displays might do just what I wanted. Thanks for visiting iPad Art Sketch ‘L’ is for Lamppost on Friday. I’m playing catch up this morning. Have a great week and happy A2Zing!

      I’m not totally sure about the LED lights but my guess would be that they are battery operated. I can’t imagine they would be a one and done.


  2. I think that little fairy lights are a fun accent just about anywhere, even among the leaves of plants, and they are not very expensive either. πŸ™‚

    Once again, I’m with Ally, twinkle branches are lovely, and I feel like everything is better with twinkly lights. Maybe I’ll get some. Now… where will I put them? And can I even stop?

    I like those little trees with LED tips. They remind me of children’s books, as if they could be a character in the story.

      Yes Ally! Wish I could a) stop finding things I want to have in my house or b) have a house big enough to accommodate all the stuff I want to have in my house. Wait until tomorrow!
