Unbelievable!

At last weekend's Creative Escape held in Chandler, AZ, teachers and past teachers designed and created lamps that were part of a raffle to raise funds for the Leukemia Society. But two special lamps, made by Heidi Swapp and Tim Holtz, were auctioned off. The photo below (courtesy of Scrap Scene) shows the lamps - can you guess whose is whose? Now, here is the unbelievable part. Heidi's lamp went for over $8,000 and Tim's for over $29,000!! Isn't that incredible? Who has that kind of money for a lamp even if it was made by the awesome Tim?! I admit, they're both pretty cool, though.

I couldn't believe it either! Do you think they would ever turn them on? Ha!
