OttlLite Craft Caddy Lamp Review AND Giveaway!

***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!!***

When it comes to lights for crafting, brighter isn't always better. Bright light sources reveal vibrant colors but also cause a harsh glare, causing the eye muscles to squint, and headaches. Other light sources reveal high contrast so that edges of objects appear clear, but the drawback is distorted color. Also, the more intense the light, the more energy is used, generating more heat.

 OttLite is a favorite choice within the crafting community because of it’s 508 technology – which brings the quality of High Definition Natural Lighting™ indoors, providing the ideal balance of brightness and contrast. The result is reduced glare, less eyestrain, less fatigue and low heat. So what does this mean? When using OttLite lamps while crafting, you will have the ability to do what you love longer and more comfortably.


OttLite lamps allow crafters to see colors that are true to life, and details with more clarity. What’s more, OttLite products are eco-friendly and energy-efficient.
I reviewed the Craft Caddy Lamp... I love that it is easily portable to where you want to craft and has places to store all my crafty things!   This light is amazing!  It truly is easier to see what I am working on.  I also love that is has an extra outlet on the back to pug in my glue gun if I need it too!



Here it is all nestled in by my sewing machine and surger! 
All loaded up and ready to go!

Ottlite is also giving away one Craft Caddy Lamp to one F&J reader!  You know you want one! 

You must be an F&J follower to win.  Visit Ottlite and leave a comment telling me what lamp you love the best!  One entry per person.  US Residents only please.

***Ottlite supplied me with one Craft Caddy Lamp free of charge... however my opinions are always honest!***

Carleen said...

I like the Spin and Store Desk Lamp.

Nicole Moore said...

I love the craft caddy lamp. I need that in my life!

Anna@Directions Not Included said...

I love them all but I think I would get the most use of out of the Flex Arm Plus lamp. I really need to upgrade the lamp on my desk soon.

Tiffany said...

I think I like the craft caddy the best! I like that I can store all my tools nearby!

i am STILL oogling over the task lamp (in black)...i see it on sale, i pick it up from the shelf...i envision myself at a crop & finally able to see what i'm working on...then i just put it back (because even on sale they can be pricey!)

Although I really like the makeup light, I know I'd end up using the Craft Caddy light more. Plus, who doesn't love cute little compartments?

Mindy1024 said...

ooo tough - I am torn between the craft caddy and the Hello Gorgeous Make-up mirror

Nancy's Couture said...

WOW! I had no idea they made sooo many lights! I really like to 3-in- one craft lamp.

No Dime Design said...

I like the craft caddy, but the charging station one is pretty awesome too!

Christy said...

My craft area (living room couch, lol) isn't very bright. I would love the craft caddy lamp!

rickimoo said...

I think the easy view craft lamp with the magnifyer would come in handy. Doing all the little beading and needle work sometime you need to look really close!

Dee said...

Oh goodness, they're all so cool! Gonna have to agree with most of the other commenters though... the craft caddy lamp is my favorite.

Sahmy said...

I'd have to say The Crafty Caddy - very useful!

Wende said...

The craft caddy lamp is awesome, and so is the desk charger one! Hard to pick which one. These lamps are great. Thanks for the chance to win!

Belinda said...

My favorite would be the crane desk/clamp lamp. This little craft lamp would be cool to have also :)

I like the Coupelle Table Lamp. It's cute, and small, and would look great in my living room! :)

Lee said...

i follow and like the makeup mirror!
thanks!

Lyndee @ A Recovering Craft Hoarder said...

I love lamps! The Coupelle Floor Lamp looks so cool!

mrs. c said...

The make up mirror is great but I would use the craft light the most!

Debra said...

My favorite would have to be the bookstand light. I always appreciate honest opinions!

Sue said...

I'm going to have to say the Craft Caddy is my favorite. Besides the lighting and storage features, that extra outlet is an awesome perk. Winning one of these would mean I would actually be able to tell the correct colors of my threads and fabrics IN my sewing room without having to go to the kitchen or outside. Thanks so much for the chance!

Jo's Corner said...

I really like the OttLite 3-in-1 Craft Lamp!

Windie said...

the craft caddy lamp is such a great idea! love it!

Sunni @Love Affair with my Brother said...

I would choose the Universal Craft lamp. I love that you can clip it or put it on a stand. That would be perfect in my sewing space!

carrieinasia said...

My favorite has got to be the Universal Craft Lamp.

Tanea said...

I love the Craft Caddy Lamp! It's so nice with all the compartments plus the extra plug-in (after all you can't get enough of those). Thanks for the giveaway!

Catskill Quilter said...

I love the Hyde Park floor lamp! I also love the Craft lamp --- the floor lamp by my sewing machine, and the Craft lamp for doing crafts or sewing in the livingroom! Thank you for hosting this giveaway!

Dona said...

I have to go with the craft caddy. I already have 2 of their lamps but the caddy would help my mess by my fave chair! At 65, you need all the light you can get!

robin said...

I checked out the Ottlite site and the one I like best is the one you're giving away. :)

Maggie said...

oooh I have this exact lamp caddy on my birthday wishlist coming up next month...I have 1 before that broke when we moved, I truly miss that lamp unfortunately it was in the $300 range, not in my budget.
Thank you so much for offering this giveaway :)

I love the craft caddy. I'd actually be able to save space by combining my storage with my lamp!

poppyinpink said...

An Ottlite craft caddy would be just dandy thank-you, seeing clearly what I am trying to make could help me enjoy the process so much more.

Libby Jones said...

I like this one the best, as it would be handier for me. My sewing space is dark, no matter what I do, and my doodads are scattered all over.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Pinkie said...

The Craft Caddy is my favorite but the floor lamps are really nice, too.

Mom C said...

I like the craft caddy lamp but the charger would be nice too. Thanks.
