Good Morning! 

Today, I was doing some project planning. ( as if I don't already have a list of things I could be working on; Hi, My name's Jenny, and I am easily distracted...... " Hi Jenny! " ) 

I've had a project simmering in my mind since summer, and now that our Glowforge has arrived, I can begin playing. If you don't know what a Glowforge is, you should go check it out at Glowforge.com.  My idea is to create a series of automaton... simple machines where you turn a crank, and make something happen... kind of like this:

I mean, How cool is that? I think it would be really fun to make something like this using the Glowforge, and then painting it. So, today I'll be spending some time designing my own much simpler automaton.  Hopefully I'll have something fun to share before too long.
