Enlightened Crafting with the OttLite 2-in-1 LED Magnifier Floor and Table Light! + Giveaway!


Close this window

Recently I have taken up several crafting hobbies, including jewelry making, creating pocket letters and detailed planner decoration. Currently I work at a small little table that I am able to move throughout the house and bring my supplies with me wherever I go. This is a quite convenient system, however, we live in a dark dank house that rarely gets any type of good lighting, and even with our lightening that we have in place and lamps, I find the lighting to be too yellow and I have a difficult time seeing without straining my eyes. This is a real problem, as I suffer from extreme migraines, and any type of eye strain is very detrimental. It’s also been a real challenge to photograph my progress ( which I share on different craft related blogs ) using the light available in my home. It’s definitely been quite frustrating.


Recently, I started using the OttLite 2-in-1 LED Magnifier Floor and Table Light. This lamp is capable of being not only a floor light, but a table top light as well. Though it is a little big for my little cart, it has worked wonderfully as a floor lamp. ( Check out what to look for in an LED Lighting here. )

This lamp is very sleek, sturdy and definitely well made. This light definitely looks quite nice in just about any situation. Though for my needs looks aren’t something I am overly concerned with, I know that many looking for a lamp to be left in a permanent position are quite interested in how it is going to fit in with their decor and location.




( You can see an amazing example in this photo of the darkness of the room as opposed to the area that the OttLite is hitting…absolutely amazing! Learn about the difference, here. )

Words cannot express how much easier this one lamp has made my entire creating/crafting process. The light that it gives off is not only bright ( but not so much that it hurts my eyes/head ), but it is quite natural. Their is absolutely NO horrible yellow glow, no eye straining and my photos look like I have taken them in a bright naturally lit room, exactly what I was hoping for.

The magnification aspect of this lamp is also quite fabulous. I am able to easily work on small detailed projects, such as beading project, with teeny tiny seed beads. With 5-inch diameter, 2x optical grade magnifier with 4x spot magnifier, I am extremely pleased! My husband has even gotten the idea to take up building model car building/painting once again, as this would aid in the process so much!


The difference is absolutely astounding and I am super excited to see what possibilities are now open to me with my new light advantage! Not only can I save myself the strain, the frustration and the migraine, but my photos are so much better, and I am pretty excited to see what it can do for my YouTube videos! With bad lighting being the number one factor preventing me from making “Plan With Me” –Planner decor type videos, now, I feel like my possibilities are endless with my OttLife 2-in-1 LED Magnifier Floor and Table Light.

  1. I am learning to needle work so I would use for this.. like you i suffer from migraines so this would take a lot of strain off my eyes

  2. This would be amazing to read with or get caught up on scrap booking! My husband has a hard time reading and seeing things ( with bi-focals!) and the magnifier would be awesome!

  3. love, love your site!!!! love to craft diabetes has messed some of my sight up, this would be awesome!!! Thank you for the opportunity!!!!

  4. This would help a lot with reading at night, especially when the hubby needs to sleep early (or late)! It would double up with writing and sewing as well. The magnifying glass is a very interesting and cute function as well! Overall, one could do so much with this light!

  5. This would be great for both my self and my husband. As we age our eyesight isn’t what it use to be, would help with my crafting,reading, and my husbands projects too.

  6. I would use the OttLite to identify the jewelry my dad buys at estate sales, and maybe even make some YouTube videos of my own!

  7. I would do EVERYthing! My story sounds a lot like yours, and this light would make work, crafting, and so much more SO much easier! Thanks for the opportunity that this giveaway provides 🙂

  8. I would read at night with the baby sleeping on the other side of my room. These lights look really cool n seem to be energy efficient and I like the daylight color effect. I don’t like the yellowish tint when I’m reading books at night. Or when I take pics of my new baby. She would probably look so beautiful under this light since pics under natural light turn out so so so much better! Thanks!

  9. I would do a happy dance under my light because I could finally see my small hand stitching! Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.

  10. Hi tweeted to both I would love to have a OttLite I suffer from IIH and it is causing me to lose my eyesight because of pressure on my optical nerves. I paint solely as a pastime for myself I find it very soothing and this light would be great.

  11. just started crocheting after a few years layoff and this would be great since my eyesight isn’t what it used to be!

  12. i would love to have this to use at my pc, i need a good small light that will fit on my pc desk and armoire.

  13. I sew and make jewelry and this looks like a must have since my eyesight is not nearly as good as it used to be. Thanks for the chance to win.

  14. It is hard to find a good lighting in my house. Our house faces NE but slightly at an angle lol so no room quiet gets good natural light despite all the windows. I love the comparison photo, big difference. I do a ton of different crafts and trying to see the tiny beads or exactly what the color of paint is can be hard. I can see why you love this lamp

  15. I would love to have this lamp my eyes just aren’t what they used to be and I love reading so if I win I would be very grateful Thank You for the chance.

  16. This is one impressive lamp!! Thanks so much for the chance to win one, and for the terrific article!! :)))
