I’ve always been interested in the crowdfunded/kickstarter type projects, and one of the ones that I had backed a while back made for great christmas presents. The company is named Power Practical, and I’m sure some of you have heard of them. Anyway, I had ordered their original Luminoodle product, and then a while later, they upgraded them to include remote controls, as well as color options, as the original only came in the typical LED white color so of course I ordered one of those, too.

I really enjoyed the color option for mood lighting in our bedroom, and with the included remote, I always wished that I had some way to leave it by the bedroom lightswitch to switch the Luminoodle on instead of having to manually press the button, or even turn the bedroom light on and then back off once I did turn the Luminoodle on…inconvenienced by the conveniences of modern day living, am I right? I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me until today, but I have the perfect machine to make what I had been wanting! I believe that at some point in my pre-glowforge days, I had intended to use it to design and make something, but it wasn’t until I found the remote (on the floor under the bed, gathering dust), that I was once again reminded of my idea. So, here is the final product:
I love command strips, and with our current living arrangements, we’re not allowed to put holes in our walls, so this is the less permanent, but very functional way of adhering it to my wall. Also, I thought the front would be prety boring without something engraved there, and I figured what was more appropriate than using the company’s logo that designed the lights
My best friend’s dad’s B-day was the other day, and he is a HUGE Iowa Hawkeyes fan, so I made him this neat little keychain
