Christmas bauble by Jalpon Christmas bauble by Jalpon
Decided to go with LEDs this year instead of just using the lights on the tree. Bought some from America and they were brill!

Greetings!  First I wanted to say that your work is spectacular, and your scale is so tiny but accurate!   Your scenes are magical and inviting, just like Christmas should be.

I found my way to your part of DA because I am finally starting my first complete house from scratch (1/24 scale, English cottage, eep!).  I had purchased LEDs from the nice people at Evan Designs in the past and in looking at their gallery to get ideas for the house, I realized I had seen one of their images before, here on DA (this particular Christmas bauble).  Again, your work is amazing.  You are welcome to check out mine, though it is a mishmash of things.

I was wondering if you could give some insight into the size/voltage of the LEDs you used in the streetlamps.  I have been thinking of using some of the 1.8mm 3V ones, as well as some of the really tiny chips.  Any preferences or tips from your experience would be much appreciated.  Thank you.

Hi Liz! Many, many thanks for your kind comments! I too a wee peek on you site and you are very talented (definitely have a soft spot for the steam punk :) ) I would be more than happy to help you any way I can. If there is anything specific you would like to know, just drop me a line. Meanwhile, I am going to hunt out the order for the various lights I used for the christmas bauble and I will send you the info asap. Can't wait to see this english cottage! :)

That is very nice of you to look for your order.  I ended up getting some of the 1.8mm, and the two smaller chip LEDs from Evan designs, so no worries about tracking down your order form.  I am anxious to see what the cottage looks like as well, but given how busy I have become these days, it will take a while.

Thank you again, and your work is awesome.  Liz

I used the 1.8mm for the vast majority of the bauble so good choice! I know what you mean about time, definitely not enough of it where craft activities are concerned......Many thanks again for your kind comments and please keep me posted on how your cottage turns out. I'd love to see it!

Thanks for letting me know (and sorry for the lack of response).  I am currently keeping track of the project on my blog but will be posting pictures here when it is eventually done. Best wishes to you in your projects!
