Daylight Lamp review and give away

Hello!  Long time no hear ….  I am actually still around and struggling on.  Things are still not good, in fact they are quite a bit worse since my last update but I have had this review to do for a while and it’s been worrying me so I thought I had best get cracking with it.

I was asked by The Daylight Lamp Company to review a Swan Floor LampI already have their table lamp version which is in constant use when I am crafting (even during the day) so was unsure that I would actually have a use for the floor version.  Wrong!  It is awesome and has come in so useful especially since I have been poorly and not spending time sat in my craft room.  It’s really a sturdy piece of kit, I love that it's on wheels (which aren’t flimsy and actually work as they are designed to do) so easily movable and yet is unobtrusive and tucks away neatly into a corner when not in use.  I can’t craft without my Daylight Lamp so to have one handy whilst sitting in the lounge (or my hubby stealing it to use when building his models!!) is just perfect.  As I’ve come to expect from Daylight Lamps they give perfect light which these tired old eyes of mine need at all times.

I really don’t think there is any light out there that can compare with a Daylight Lamp (and I have pretty much tried them all) for true light, I honestly CANNOT craft without mine so The Daylight Lamp Company have very generously given me this AMAZING Slimline Floor Lamp (pictured below) to give away. 

Obviously due to the nature of the prize – value, weight, logistics, etc this prize is only open to UK residents.  If you would like to take part in the draw pop your name in the linky below and I will draw a winner on Friday evening.

  1. Sorry to hear you're still not well and I really hope your health starts to improve soon.
    Thanks for telling us what you think of these daylight lamps as I reckon this may be what my Dad needs - at the age of 93 his eyesight is definitely not so good but he does like to keep busy and has just taking up knitting toys. So I'll pop over to their shop and check them out
    Take care of yourself xx

  4. So sorry to hear that you are still unwell Bev, I hope those doctors get you sorted soon, they really can be useless at times.
    My eyes are not as good as they used to be so a lamp would really help with my crafting. Thanks for the chance x

  5. Hope you feel better soon! There's nothing worse than feeling unwell, and I know how frustrating it can be, especially when you'd rather be surrounded by lovely crafty stash. The lamp sounds brilliant. I have a halogen floor lamp which is lovely and bright, but the light is projected up (and it's static, no way of changing the angle), so it's not ideal. One of these sounds perfect, especially as I don't have room at all for a desk mounted one! lol. Thank you to you (and the company) for the chance to win this incredibly generous givaway. x

    I have a teeny daylight lamp on my craft desk that seems to be on its way out, but I would not be without it now. I love the white light it gives out, and I'm sure it really helps the eyes, and it's fab for taking the photos. Good luck to everyone who enters.

  39. I was beginning to think the worst when you hadn't posted for so long! I hope your health begins to improve soon. I can't enter the giveaway as I live in Canada. I want you to know that I've been thinking of you and sending love and prayers your way. I have 2 desk lamps, one is an Ott light and I love it as it is also a true light lamp. The other lamp is very small but gives off a very bright light which is helps me a lot when crafting.

  90. I've really missed your regular blog posts and gorgeous cards and things you design! Is it still a migraine problem or has it moved to something else at this point? I have had lots of health issues and was recently diagnosed with Lyme Disease which had been causing awful migraines, stomach aches, over all general aches, and exhaustion. Pretty much the same as the flu. It's been a long two months battling it and taking all sorts of antibiotics but I'm finally on the road to recovery. Make sure they test you as well for Lyme and CoInfections. If you want any more info on this my email is amycrops2@aol.com. GET WELL SOON!!
