I sometimes buy things not knowing what I’ll do with them. Case in point: An empty snow globe I bought at Hobbycraft a week before Halloween. I decided to leave it off to one side until I figure out what to do with it. Half a month later I was tidying up my shelves and figured I’d put it on my desk and see what I’d do with it. I’d been learning electronics for about a month and wanted to see what I could do with what I’d learned, so I went with a classic: A Christmas tree covered in snow, which flashes when I shake it. In the end the project failed, but as I always say: The cookie dough always tastes better than the cookie! So without further ado, the failed snow globe!
