Can't thank you enough for your patience with me and the help you gave me. Nervous as I was, the lighting was just as simple as you promised it would be and I will never be afraid of it again! I will use your LEDs from now on, next project is to make 12th scale lamps that will hold them! Attached is the pic of my finished room box. The LEDs are so much brighter than the 12 volt [incandescent]! I will definitely be buying again :D
A room with a view
I'm very excited about the roombox! The lights worked great! It is definitely being offered as the QC workshop in April and in Columbia, SC sometime this summer with a group there. The lid is slightly raised in the first photo to show all the way to the ceiling. The second in a close up so you can see both the lamp and the outdoor lighting.

Penguins in the Christmas bauble
This year's Christmas bauble finally finished. Thanks to the size of the LEDs, I was able to fit lights in the smallest of spaces! As part of the diorama, I wanted the female penguin to be asleep in front of the telly while the male penguin was hard at work cooking in the kitchen (definitely NOT what happens in our house!)

Mouse between books
"Here is a photo of my "wee" project I used the FIRE LED's, put them inside a little parlour stove I built from a kit from the dollhouse store and then put some crinkled yellow, orange and red tissue paper in front of the little lights so you couldn't see them... The effect was too cute and I had a lot of ooohhh's and aaahhh's from family and friends. Yours kindredly, Shan"
The new string lights in use... "I put it up under the eves of the Antebellum house. Took it in the darkened room and shot pictures in the dark. This is in the dark. Very impressive. I can also see it as outdoor lighting for yards. The next view is from underneath to show where they were attached. I used 1/8"glue dots to hold each light. It was taken in a lightened room." Luci Hanson, Cascade Miniatures Luci is using our new String LED set!
Thanks to Paula for this picture of the "Night Before Christmas" bookends, lit with our 1.8mm warm white LEDs and with a tiny fire in the fireplace too. Thanks to Cascade Miniatures for the kit. See more of Paula's work: Paula Isaacs
"I bought a little lamp at an estate sale. It had once been an electrified lamp and had the broken parts of the old incandescent light in it. It also had the top globe broken off, and I thought I might be able to put an LED in it. It took some work removing the old parts, but I got them out. Then I had to ream out the wire hole so the LED wire would fit in it. I threaded the wires through the hole, hooked them to the battery pack and, oh wow, it is a lovely little piece (after a bit of repainting). You really set me on fire. I can make almost any little lamp into an LED. There is one little problem. It has to have a hole that can be made large enough to accomodate the two wires and the resistor." Julia
Haunted shop in the prairie
This creepy little shop is made even more eerie with the use of our "haunting" LED kit!

Soutwestern style room view
This is a 1/120 scale Southwest Style roombox. In terms of lighting, it used a combination of 3 volt lights with two N batteries so the fireplace did not flicker the room lights about 9 bulbs altogether: * 1.8mm cool whites in the ceiling and wall in the living room and showing on the patio side of the wall; * 1.8mm warm whites in the outside "patio" area ceiling with some yellow/orange glass paint put on some of the bulbs to simulate a sunset;
* flickering fireplace (our 3v fire kit) in the patio area

Amazing Dutch baby house
I've had lot of fun lately working on small scale projects such as our three recent Dutch Baby Houses. I get a lot of emails from people who are just not certain that they would be able to work in such a small scale, and do not want to jump in on a project as large as a filled baby house. Madalyn's Dollhouse project was designed especially for you! If you are a small scaler, or if you have a child's room in 1/12 scale, this is a lovely project. Of course, it was specifically designed to coordinate with all of the pieces in Madalyn's Nursery. But I am also offering the doll house project as a stand alone class.
