As I drink deep of my winter melancholy, herewith find an update of my less than exciting cherry blossom life.
I am planning a new tattoo for the door window, the design shown below full-size using photo-copies. I have an idea to use a type of lead strip instead of the paper tape used previously. This will make it more like a real leaded-glass window, even though it's as fake as the title of this post.

Other than this, I'm still making LED lights. I have made a handful of the desk lamps shown below. These use the same circuit as the CRM light but with the addition of a transformer to reduce the voltage to around 72 volts DC, running 23 LEDs with dimmer.

I'm making a color/colour version of this desklamp with 23 of each red, green & blue LEDs. I expect it to be colourful. Unlike my vibrant personality.

I don't need desk lamps because I have the glow that emits from my heart that is the love of my fellow bloggers.

I'm actually a big fan of making up words. It's not fake. It's original. Like swagger-licious. My friend made that up, and I'm stealing it.
