stupid pet trick #2

I HAVE CONQUERED THE WORLD OF SOLDERING.

my board for my pet trick is now assembled and working!  yippee!!

seriously guys, you have no idea how terrified of the soldering iron i was when i came to the floor today.  i did everything EXCEPT solder my wires to my switch because i was so scared.  but thankfully, heather velez came to my rescue and held my hand through the process, and now i feel like a champion.

the next step is the actual fabrication, which i'm expecting will be the most difficult part of this whole endeavor.  need to do some research tonight/tomorrow about the best way to diffuse LED light.
