2017 OttLite Ambassador & Giveaway

This Giveaway is now closed and the winner was announced in this post.

Happy New Year! I hope you had wonderful holidays. I’ve decided this year to blog on Wednesdays and I’m delighted to kick off the New Year by letting you know I’m a 2017 OttLite Ambassador

OttLite Amabassador (Marjie Kemper)

I bought my first OttLite in 1999 and I’ve had one in my craft room ever since. In other words, I believe in their products and I wholeheartedly vouch for them.OttLites are known for their natural lighting capacity. They are made for crafters and quilters, and are terrific for every-day use when reading. 

Who are the Brand Ambassadors?

Kathy Cano-Murillo (The Crafty Chica), Tamara Kelly (Moogly), Beverly McCullough (Flamingo Toes), Jack & Shannon Mullett-Biolwsby (The Shibaguyz), and  Ed Roth (Stencil1) and myself.

Giveaway: Extended Reach Folding LED Desk Lamp

Taking a photo indoors with an OttLite is as close as it comes to being outside with natural daylight.

Today I have giveaway for my new favorite. It’s the Extended Reach Folding LED Desk Lamp. You can adjust the brightness using 7 different settings with just the touch of a button.  Besides the true lighting, one of my favorite features of this particular lamp is that it  folds down onto itself.  That means it’s not in my way. I need only allow it an 8″ square of my craft table (AKA coveted real estate.)

Multiple extension options are available, as seen in the images below.

OttLite Extended Reach LED Desk Lamp Giveaway - Ambassador (Marjie Kemper)

Here’s a peek of it opened and extended over one of my art journals.  This picture was taken on a dark rainy day, and the ONLY light in my studio was the OttLite. It’s amazing. Those are Dylusions Ink Sprays and they appear just as vibrant on that dark rainy day as they do in real life.

OttLite Giveaway Jan 2017 - OttLite Ambassador - Marjie Kemper


Win the OttLite Extended Reach LED Desk Lamp (USA Residents)

Would you like an Extended Reach LED Desk Lamp of your own?  This giveaway is open to Residents of the USA only.  Simply leave a comment below by midnight on Monday January 9th. I will use a Random Number Generator to choose a winner.  This Giveaway is now closed and the winner was announced in this post.

The reason it is limited to USA residents is that in the past lamps have been shipped overseas and the winners were met with serious fees through customs to receive them. Then it wasn’t really a prize since they had to pay out of pocket, right?  OttLite would love to send the prize anywhere, but they don’t want you to have to pay to receive it.

Online Mixed Media Class

My online Mixed Media Class with Craftsy comes with lifetime access and a money-back guarantee.  Dylusions Ink Sprays (shown above) are one of the products I demonstrate.  The class is called Inventive Ink: Colorful Mixed Media Effects. Here’s a 2-minute preview video:


Have a wonderful day, and let’s stay connected.  Please sign up for my newsletter or find me on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, or Twitter.

  92. I am excited about this giveaway as I did not know you could use the lamp to take indoor photos. Often my pics have a yellow cast to them because I work in my art journals in the early, dark hours of the morning. Using this lamp would certainly help!

  104. Tammy Rutledge says:

    Hi Marjie! Because I moved over this past summer, I am completely revamping my art studio, and an OttLite would be a welcome addition to my room. Right now, I have a “fake” OttLight that I found at Walmart or Target or somewhere many years ago. Believe me, it is NO OttLite. It would be a dream to own one.

  105. Wow I just looked at OTT lights on Joanns .com the other day. Would love to win. Thanks for offering,

  106. L'Ann Lackey says:

    Love to have a great full spectrum light in my craft room! Thank you for the chance.

  110. Cheryl Leonard-Buick says:

    My sister-in-law suggested strongly that I get an OttLite several years ago. I thought it was a good idea, but I just did not get around to it. Finally two years ago I bought my first OttLite, and my life changed for the better instantly! I do not know how I functioned before. Reading, knitting and other crafts were so difficult until I could actually see what I should be doing.

  111. I have had an Ott light for so long, I can’t even count the years but over 20. Now with a larger studio I could sure use another.

  112. I was researching OTT lights the other day as I’ve got some serious goals for 2017. I need better lighting and I think this might be it. Crossing my fingers, this would be perfect. Thanks for sharing your experience and info about this light! XoXo!

  113. Klara Toth says:

    Would love to win that Ottlite and so glad you are a brand ambassador!

  114. Lonnie klenk says:

    Love to see your art and watch the Videos. So much creativity shared. Thank you for the chance to win the fantastic light.

  115. Love my OttLites! Could not live without them in my Quilt Studio. I keep adding another one to a new area in my home, by my TV, the sitting area in bedroom, guest room was a must, Husbands workshop was a gift, he loves me more! What a great line of lighting, for all uses!

  116. I am just organizing a new craft room and a new Ott Light would be awesome!

  117. MelissA Hines says:

    This is the greatest thing since sliced bread (brain is tired and couldn’t quickly think of arty phrase). I will be on the lookout for one of these as it is EXACTLY what I need!! Of course if I win it I won’t have to go find one lol. Thanks so much for sharing!

  118. DORLIS GROTE says:

    I have several Ott lites and I love them. At 76, my eyes need all the help I can give them.

  119. Ooh I would love to win that! I have such a hard time taking indoor photos of my work! πŸ™‚

  120. I have only had my OttLite for two years but cannot imagine how I functioned before. The light is bright but not overly so and things I use it for (art journaling, card making, scrapping) are clear, colors are true. I would love to add another type of the lamps to the two I have. I put them everywhere in the house and carrry them around with me depending on where I work.

  121. I am new to art journaling and love your designs and what looks like good teaching and organizational skills after looking at your intro video. Light is always a “search” for the best for me since I am working in my garage. I currently use three light sources and none are directly over my work zone as your OTT light seems to extend. Keep up the good work and good ideas and be creative all in 2017!

  122. I enjoy your posts and it would be great to win this light. Recently revamped my studio and need a new source of light.

  123. Hi – enjoy your art – I have used several of your techniques – love how it turned out!!!
    I am impressed with the OTT light –

  124. Betsy Megna says:

    I have one of the original OTT lights that folds down to shut off. still love it!

  125. Betsy Megna says:

    Love your Craftsy class!

  128. I love Ott Lite~ I have a floor model and couldn’t do without it:)

  129. My mother had an OttLite and she loved it.

  130. Victoria Ohman says:

    YAY! OttLite is my trusted companion for all my creative endeavors! ^_^

  131. Joyce Wood says:

    I love your color combinations especially with the Dylusions inks.

  132. This is the first I’m hearing about them but, they seem indispensable for artists

  133. Congratulations and Thanks for the giveaway. I had an ott-lite for years and the bulb finally died. Would love a new lamp.

  134. Karen Kunz says:

    A friend of mine has a battery operated OttLite which made crafting at a table so easy without messing with an extension cord. I loved it so much that I put it on my wish list and wouldn’t you know it, but she bought one for me as a hostess gift! I have great friends and we all love our OttLites!

  135. Natalie Godfrey says:

    Awesome giveaway. Thank you!

  139. Ellen Fabrizio says:

  141. Love to have this Ott Lite for my old tired eyes to help me continue my love for crafts. Wonderful addition to my life!

  142. Diane Riley says:

    I enjoy your craftsy class. I like the idea that it folds out of the way when not in use. Looking forward to 2017 and the blog.

  143. Gerrie Johnnic says:

    This is an awesome light! My Ott lite died a few years ago, and I haven’t been able to replace it, would love to win. Keep enticing us with your awesome art and good luck with your expanding business!

  144. Congrats on becoming a Ottlite Ambassador! I love the brightness of the Ottlite and how this one takes up very little space.

  145. A D Lopez says:

    Wonderful news for you. I love to hear testimonials about the Ott Lights. I would love to try one some day.

  146. Kathy Mitman says:

  147. April Lopez says:

    Awesome news for you. Congrats. I’ve always wanted to get one of these lamps but haven’t yet. It would be awesome to win one for my studio.

  160. Cindy Langston says:

    I love OttLite’s too Marjie and the older I get the more I realize how much I need one! Ha ha!! They are terrific for art as well as hand stitching and reading. So fun that you are now an Ambassador!

  164. Estrella Bianchi says:

    Terrific! The extended reach on this LED OttLite desk lamp is just perfect! I love that this lamp can be configured in many ways and that it has a base. The clip-on style of lamps just doesn’t work where I sit to create. This is really a great new OttLite lamp!

  165. Extended Reach Ottlite…what a great idea and would be very versatile in my den/sewing area! I have several Ottlite floor lamps … Amazed by the great light they produce .. And excellent for Quilter’s!

  166. What a great giveaway! I’ve been wanting an OttLite for ages.

  167. Nicole Harper says:

    I love these lights! Thank you for a chance to win one. ?

  190. Susan Izbiansky says:

    I have an Ottlite but purchased it while traveling. When I started to use it, serval hundred miles later I found that the arm does not stay up. Can’t tighten it so I have to prop it up. Very frustrating but the lite is so much better with it on that I put up with it. A new one that doesn’t need props would be great! Thanks for the chance to win one.

    Congrats! How wonderful that you’ve been chosen to represent and be an OttLite Ambassador. My daughter purchased one for me years ago as a gift and I love it. My vision is getting worse with age and due to a medical issue so lighting is always a issue. I create in my scrap room or something at my desk in the living so having one on each desk would be super helpful…both for the eyes and the project. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Congratulations on being a new OttLite Ambassador, and OMG, pick me, pick me! It is just the thing I need in my newly converted craft/sewing room!

  227. Hi, Marjie, congrats on having become a spokesperson for the OttLite world! Like you, I am a longtime and avid fan. Before my first OttLite purchase, I would struggle with scanning my artwork–never being happy with the results. The OttLite makes photographing my artwork breeze–getting true colors each time.

  228. Oh, how I could use some decent lighting! Please enter me in your giveaway!

  229. Joan Petranovich says:

    Loved your Craftsy class – it was my introduction to Mixed Media and stamping and still my favorite.

  232. Linda LeBlanc says:

    I just ordered one…If it’s a lamp you rave about, it’s got to be good!

  233. I love THAT OttLite. Thanks for the chance to win, Marjie.

  234. Sharon du Coudray says:

    Wow. That looks like a great addition to the family of OttLite lamps. I have two in my art room. One is a desktop and the other is a floor lamp. In Portland our climate is gray for much of the year. I couldn’t do without these for artwork and for psychological reasons. The light is uplifting.

  235. Kay Strum says:

    It looks like an amazing light and would love to win one. Do you have information on how to purchase one if I don’t win? Thanks.

  236. Marilyn Hughes says:

    Okay, this is definitely what I need to replace the lamps I lost in the flood. So much better than the ones I was using. Fingers crossed.

  237. Colleen O'Lear says:

  243. Diana Ryman says:

    I love your blog and work! Thanks so much for sharing it with us. And I dearly need this Ott lamp at my house – between my aging eyes and the poor incandescent lighting, I feel like I’m nearly blind! I do a lot of sketching and watercoloring in addition to bookbinding and really need good light for that. Thanks!

  244. Trish Gutuskey says:

    What a great prize. I’ve loved Ott light for many years too. I have one in my craft area and one in my office. Great tool for matching up papers and inks. I find myself also having to use it in the winter on gloomy mornings to get dressed! You know–those socks-which one is black and which one is navy! Nothing worse than leaving the house with one of each when you can’t tell. Lolol

  245. Congrats on becoming their Ambassador!!!! That light looks amazing! I love the one I have too!!!!!!

  246. I would LOVE a ott light for my desk that could replace the current lamp that has been glued back together, rebounded with scraps of wood, and is so fragile that I hold my breath every time I readjust it! LLOVED your Craftsy class. Happy creating in 2017

  247. Congratulations on becoming an Ottlight Ambassador Marjie x wish I lived in the USA ta take part in the giveaway ?. I have started on your Craftsy class in Colourful Mixed Media and I am really enjoying it as I hope to develop my current knowledge and skill and create a journal

    Wishing you a Happy New Year with best wishes in 2017 xx

  252. Rita Hatcher says:

    Love your use of color! Would love to win the ottlite!! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  253. I’d love to win a desk top OTT lite! I broke my foot when I stepped on the base of my floor version of the OTT lite…rolled and snapped! 4 months of crutches, boots and shoes. That wouldn’t have happened if I had a desktop version! At least I hope not! lol

  254. Diane Swanson says:

    I love Ott lights and would love to have this one! It looks awesome!

  255. I definitely need this lamp in my life!! What an awesome giveaway, thank you for the opportunity!

  264. This light looks great! I would love to win one. Thanks so much for the chance Marjie πŸ™‚

  265. Kathleen Cook says:

  270. Love your work. Took a great class of yours with Craftsy. Could always use good lighting!

    Congratulations, Margie!!! I would LOVE to have an OttLite!!! The Extended Reach looks like it would be PERFECT for my dark studio!!!! Thanks for a chance to get the cool OttLite!!!!

  273. Karen D'Angelo says:

    I enjoy making art in the evening and know the shock of looking at my colors in daylight when I use the wrong lightbulb the night before. The OttLite provides a perfect environment for my work when I want to be color-correct and see good results the next day.

  274. Ooh I could use this for photos! That would be awesome!
    Right now I have to drag out a massive
    Pro photograghy like on a tripod and it heats up like the surface of the sun?.

  275. I have a small ott light and I love it! I definitely need the big one! Thanks for the chance to win!

  276. Heather Thompson says:

    this is very awesome, congrats! I agree, desk space is precious reality. I use the bulbs and love them. Congrats again.

  277. Debbie Goodrow says:

    Oh, I would LOVE one of these! I have a couple of OttLite’s already, smaller. But there from before the LED revolution. I would dearly love to get one of these instead. And you’re so right about the wonderful fact that they take up so little ‘coveted real estate’. πŸ˜‰

  278. Pick me! Pick me!! I love my OTT lights, but would love to gain back some coveted real estate by swapping out for this one!!

  279. Carol Mcclure says:

    Wow…that’s nice…I have one but had to give it up to mom, so she could read…I could use this in my art shed!

  280. Debby Podgorski says:

    Wow I have an Ott light too but the one you have looks way cool!

  281. Nancy finn says:

    I was just saying I needed more light!! (And the eyes ? Of a 20 year old). I stand a better chance with the light!!lol

  282. I also love OTT lights. I have 2 in my studio, but need a third as my room is rather gloomy even on sunny days. Thanks for the chance to win!

  283. Jen Johnson says:

    I bought an Ott light back when I started quilting, probably around 1993. The light is still working and I use it on my office almost every day. These are well worth the money!

  285. That ott light would be perfect for my art desk! Congrats on the ambassadorship and thanks for the giveaway
