I just wanted to drop a line to say thanks for the tutorials and info on Craft about LEDs and soft circuitry. I got a Make Conductive Booster Pack and used some blue LEDs to add to a mini quilt I made depicting a “cute” taningia danae squid! The real squid has bioluminescent properties, so it was a perfect subject on which to try out my soft circuit kit.

Cheryl is attempting a “technique a week” for 2010, which I think is just great. What’s your first finished project of 2010? Share with us in the comments.

  1. I don’t really do much in the way of finished projects. Lots of starts on ongoing projects. I’m getting ready to launch a collaborative altered book project with a group of friends so I’ve spent the last few days prepping a 1950s typing instruction manual for that project.
