    clue the nightlight into shell....stuff with puffs and level the bulb with coins

    you have to have a night light that turns on and off...one what senses light to turn on wont work unless you risk drilling the shell...make sure you turn the light on before gluing...you have to be sure the bulb changes easily....

    fuck ups so far:

    hubbys walk in house...plucks up the night light and goes..what ya doing....well i was gluing that down

    then i get the glue dryed..takes 24 hours... and it doesnt work....ahhh...i carefully unstick and unpeel it all...i didnt turn the light on..so its back setting waiting for the glue to dry ...either gonna be real neat or real nasty



    ...but we wont know for 24 hours
